Databases using R
At RStudio, we are working to make it as easy as possible to work with databases in R. This work focuses on three key areas:
1. RStudio products
- The new RStudio Connections Pane makes it possible to easily connect to a variety of data sources, and explore the objects and data inside the connection
- To RStudio commercial customers, we offer RStudio Professional ODBC Drivers, these are data connectors that help you connect to some of the most popular databases.
2. Use best-in-class packages
3. Promote best practices
This website is the main channel to provide support in this area. RStudio is also working through other delivery channels, like upcoming webinars and in-person training at rstudio::conf 2018
