Data independence
"The data research team can quickly add those experiments by composing rules in R, rather than needing to go through a much longer IT development process"

I think that's a big step on its own. If the business users can themselves become tech-savvy and independent, it would greatly increase their productivity. You don't have to be dependent on the IT guys anymore and wait for them to give you reports. I think other organizations should encourage this behavior.
