How has it helped my organization?
We have use it in industry projects, for internal experiments, and for teaching.
What needs improvement?
The diversity of native algorithms could be improved.
For how long have I used the solution?
I have been using this solution for the past three years and it is an excellent solution.
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
No issues with deployment.

How are customer service and technical support?
Once I had to contact the customer service, and it worked quite well. Technical Support
Knime has a considerable support community, so there are few problems that you can not find in the documents of the community.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
I used the old Clementine solution (now in the IBM portfolio). I also keep using Weka, but now I tend to use Knime more, which ends up being more versatile, since it can integrate R and Weka.

I implemented in-house and for other companies.
What was our ROI?
Very high, since it has low costs and it is very easy to use.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
Yes, but long ago. I evaluated Oracle Data Mining, Clementine, and SAS Enterprise Miner.
