This is all great...
... for learning and testing. But as long as there is no dedicated offering, who will want to use it productively?
Is a dedicated offering to be expected and if so, when?1 vote
Have you looked at the IBM Data Science Experience? http://datascience.ibm.com/
DSX is a great dedicated offering with a similar or broader feature set to what we use to deliver BDU Labs.

The blue question mark does not imply Technical Support for many users. It would be better to change it to something more visible6 votes
The floating “Support” button on the middle right has been available for several weeks now. It can be used for both – opening tickets to get technical assistance, as well as there is an option to provide feedback or suggest an idea.
Install ggplot2 for SparkR. It is a special package just for Spark found at:

I have been trying to built the work bench for the past hour. The page will just log me out and then ask me to login again. When i do, it just starts building workbench again in a seemingly endless cycle.11 votes
We have a new process for provisioning workbenches. The process is both faster and more reliable. While this is significant progress we are not done yet. Workbench provisioning is only going to get faster.
We just added RStudio to the Data Scientist Workbench. Rstudio complements R Notebooks for building analytics in R. You can launch RStudio from the "Analyze Data" menu. The same place you will find "My Notebooks" menu item.
We are not quite sure if these are the right menu labels. Both Notebooks and IDEs like RStudio are really used to "build" analytics. Should we change the menu heading to "Build Analitycs"?1 vote

David, thanks for your suggestion. We are adding rstan package to R Studio IDE and it is expected to be available soon. Please keep eyes on our update of changelog in workbench.

Now regardless of which tool you use in the Workbench – whether OpenRefine, Notebooks or R Studio IDE, you see a common menu bar on top.
First, I can't seem to be able to install shiny in RStudio:
It would be nice if I could create an app in DSWB, and have a link to the resulting app that I can share publicly.7 votes
IBM seems to be providing two very similar but separate environments. It would be helpful to understand why there are two separate workbenches and what the differences are between the Data Scientist Workbench and the Knowledge Anyhow Workbench6 votes
If we can download the workbench to our PC, we can use it as a client for a Hadoop/ Spark cluster1 vote
Thank you for your suggestion. We are happy to announce that we now offer an ability to download the DSWB notebook environment to a laptop and run notebooks entirely on the PC/Mac. You have helped us make DSWB a better product. Keep your suggestions coming.
