3.1. General introduction

DataMa Compare is essentially a R package, embedded in a Shiny web application.

The straightest way of using DataMa Compare therefore is to use the DataMa Compare Shiny Web App , either hosted on our servers (solutions.datama.fr) or on premise.
Note that deployment on premise is simplified by the use of Docker, and ShinyProxy.

However, you could also use DataMa Compare R package as a brick within a data flow that performs the task on the defined inputs and renders a flat file that can be consumed by other applications, in particular visualisation software, such as Tableau. In that sense, DataMa Compare works well as a step of data science platforms like DataIku.
