Our Inspiration


People all over the world are turning to R, an open source statistical language, to make sense of data.

Inspired by the innovations of R users in science, education, and industry, RStudio develops free and open tools for R and enterprise-ready professional products for teams to scale and share work.

Let us know how we can help you!

The creators of R provided a flexible and powerful foundation for statistical computing; then made it free and open so that it could be improved collaboratively and its benefits could be shared by the widest possible audience.

It’s better for everyone if the tools used for research and science are free and open. There are many benefits to free software in science: improved reproducibility, wider sharing of knowledge and techniques, and elimination of cost barriers to create a more level playing field, to name just a few R users are doing some of the most innovative and important work in science, education, and industry. It’s a daily inspiration and challenge to keep up with the community and all it is accomplishing.

Our Mission

RStudio has a mission to provide the most widely used open source and enterprise-ready professional software for the R statistical computing environment. These tools further the cause of equipping everyone, regardless of means, to participate in a global economy that increasingly rewards data literacy.

RStudio open source and enterprise-ready, professional software combines robust and reproducible data analysis with tools to effectively share data products. Our flagship professional products RStudio Server Pro, RStudio Connect, and RStudio Package Manager equip professional data science teams to develop and share their work at scale.

Our Affiliations

The R Consortium is a collaboration between the R Foundation, RStudio, Microsoft, TIBCO, Google, Oracle, HP and others. It’s chartered to fund and inspire ideas that will enable R to become an even better platform for science, research, and industry.
RStudio and Shiny are affiliated projects of the Foundation for Open Access Statistics. FOAS works to ensure the continued success of the Journal of Statistical Software (JSS), one of the few major open access journals that is free for both readers and authors. They also promote the use and development of free software for statistics, such as the R language and environment for computational statistics.
