    Cost, functionality. There are an amazing amount of packages available to implement different analyses, the amount of support and documentation is incredible. Then the ability to create GUIs using Shiny is great for distribution of your work to colleagues and associates to use.

    As a programming language, R requires difficult setup and in-depth technical knowledge. Even if R has some statistical capabilities, it cannot compare to a dedicated statistical application like minitab.

    RStudio vs Minitab opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    RStudio is an integrated development environment for a programming language, not a statistical software package. Therefore, it is a poor replacement for Minitab and is only a feasible alternative for fluent programmers.

    Beginners in statistical analysis would benefit the most from Number Analytics. Minitab requires some level of statistical knowledge like t-value, p-value, F-value to understand ANOVA, chi-square test. You have to select what kinds of statistical analysis is appropriate for a case. Number Analytics automatically applies the right statistical model for you so that beginners would be the right target. However advanced statistical analysis is limited at Number Analytics compared to Minitab.

    I tried Minitab and Number Analytics. For beginners, it would be better to start with Number Analytics. It is much simpler to use and has less options to choose. The graphical interface is better as it has more color coded tables and interactive graphs.

    For basic statistics like descriptive statistics, ANOVA, T-test, Linear Regression are also available. It is easier to use but the functionalities are limited for professional statistical analysis.

    I used Minitab for basic statisticcal analysis like t-test, ANOVA test, and regression analysis. The basic statistical analysis results are comparable with those from Number Analytics. For those who start to learn basic statistics would benefit from Number Analytics because it is free for basic statistics. The basic plan is limited to use less than 2M byte data file, but for learning statistics, it would be good enough.
