support for R notebook
Would love to have support for the language R in the notebook experience of Synapse Studio.
SQL Server ? SQL database has both R and Python so why is Synapse missing this. James Roland?
I think support of R in Azure Synapse / Spark would be critical for organization wide adoption.

Absolutely! I see customers waiting to migrate - but also having a large R codebase...

R support is critical for a wide variety financial/quant applications.

Python and R work so very well together; they are the two most important Data Science languages which is why analysts learn both. So then, why do we have to choose? Both languages are supported in Power BI and Databricks (and RStudio too, btw) which indicates formal recognition of their equal importance so why would they not both be supported in Synapse? Not having the two most important Data Science languages supported means we have to span multiple environments and have CSV files floating around. People want to move to Synapse and the Azure stack; please don't make it hard from them.
To me it is a critical missing piece to fully support all data science needs in Synapse
