Posit Package Manager licenses

Do you want your data scientists to focus on their work, not on managing R packages? Does your IT team encounter difficulties with each package update to maintain the servers without breaking the code?

If each of your team members works independently and uses their own versions of R packages, it can hinder collaboration within your teams. They should be able to work within a unified production environment while still being able to manage their packages.

Posit Package Manager is a repository management server that allows you to organize and centralize R and Python packages within your team, department, or entire organization. It provides offline access to CRAN, automates CRAN synchronizations, allows you to share internally developed in-house packages, search for packages in repositories, and much more.

With Posit Package Manager, you can benefit from reliable and consistent package management, optimized for your teams that use R or Python.

Posit Package Manager provides pre-compiled binary packages for different operating systems. The binary format of an R package allows users to install it without having to compile all the source code of the package, which can take hours. Posit Package Manager thus helps to avoid the waiting time for package compilation.

Posit Package Manager allows you to manage packages securely. You can limit access to packages by creating subsets of packages from CRAN that will be available to users – very useful if IT prefers to filter the packages that users can install for security reasons. Posit Package Manager also allows users to create a list of packages they want to install, but the installation will only be performed after validation by the manager and/or IT – ensuring that the installed version is the one that existed at the time of the request, even if validation takes place several days or weeks after the request.

Posit Package Manager is a tool that quickly becomes indispensable, especially if you have Posit Workbench and Posit Connect. With Posit Package Manager, you can unify the package versions used during development on PositWorkbench and those used during deployment on Posit Connect.
