Its great to see the R with Tableau. Microsoft is also announced recently to integrate the R with SQL Server 2016 and Power BI. Will be great if you highlight feature where it gives right comparison to choose Between the peers. Thanks

We offered R via Tableau to our Data Scientists. They had tried it and rejected it since they couldn't use the R's built-in Plot because it is more flexible than anything you'd find in TB for layering unless you want to spend time designing an R3 visual and importing it. TB is a great tool and we do use it here.
