I personally prefer the model where I create a tool that takes 
some input and provides output in a suitable format that I can 
load to a proper statistical environment  (R or Julia ) for 
visualisation and manipulation. Therefore I would rather write a  
tool that performs a single task optimally and pipes its output 
to  a different tool for another task. This way I can use the 
tools and allow for flexible pipelines.

rawdata -> clean -> QC –> to format Y –> to format X -> tool A -> 
tool B-> visualize
