I'm in the process of evaluating ESRI's Insights for ArcGIS application against Microsoft's Power BI application.  Users can customize Power BI using R to expand its statistical analysis capabilities.  Can users customize Insights for ArcGIS using 'R', Python, or something similar?  If yes, how?

Thanks!

Yes, It is possible to have a function in the database (SQL Server, Oracle, SAP Hana, etc.) that runs an R script and result can be consumed just like any table view in Insights – the script will be run when adding it and can be run anytime by using the update in Insights.  Currently, there is no UI to run scripts from directly from the Insights UI.  This is in our future plans.

Hope that helps.
