Microsoft has added R data visualizations to its Power BI data analysis cloud service -- options which no longer require either knowledge of R or having R on a local system.

These new custom visualizations work in Power BI desktop as well as the cloud service (but the desktop software does require a local R installation, although not knowledge of R).
