Dear r-useRs, After a couple of years in a 'R exile' of sorts, I've recently changed jobs and my current employer (an American multinational in the food manufacturing industry) is much more open than my past employer (which wouldn't even want to hear about anything that didn't begin with SAS...). So, after my insistence corporate IT is now considering adopting R as part of our statistical applications toolbox.
Things are not that simple though, and I'm now in the process of collecting data for writing a Business Case for R in our corporation, and this is the reason I'm writing you. If you have any examples (preferably with references) and/or experience in a similar scenario please do write me. I've already googled for some materials, and there's an excellent piece on the NyTimes of last year, which pointed that even Google was adopting R, and this is exactly the sort of thing I need to help convincing IT they'll be making a sound choice in adopting R. Thanks in advance for your attention, Fernando Rosa -- "Though this be randomness, yet there is structure in't."
