Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio Review

Stable, easy to use, and quick to implement

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this product for its price elasticity and the product mix on offer.

What is most valuable?

The solution is very easy to use, so far as our data scientists are concerned. 

There's an excellent self-developing capability that is provided that makes the product unique.

The solution is very stable. We haven't had any issues with its performance thus far.

We've found that, if you need to, you can scale the product.

The solution is very quick to implement.

What needs improvement?

We've found that the solution runs at a high cost. It's not cheap to utilize it.

Two additional items I would like to see added in future versions are software life cycle features and more security capabilities. There should be data access security, a role level security. Right now, they don't offer this.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've only really been using the solution for the last few months. It really hasn't been too long at this point in time.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is reliable. There are no bugs or glitches. We haven't experienced crashes or freezing. It's stable. It's very good in that sense.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

If a company needs to scale the solution, they should have no problem doing so. I don't see any aspect of the solution that would stop a user from expanding it as needed.

Currently, we only have a handful of users. There are only about five to seven people on the product right now.

We do plan to continue to use the product and to increase usage in the future.

How are customer service and technical support?

We've dealt with technical support in the past. We do, from time to time, have issues, which we work with the Microsoft team to resolve.

Overall, we've been satisfied with the level of support they have provided us.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not previously use a different product. This is the first type of solution that we've used.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is quick and easy. It's not complex at all. There is no installation per se. It's simply that you plug into the cloud and start using it.

For deployment, you likely need a two or three-member team. You don't need a lot of people to get it up and running. Largely they are just managers, admins or engineers, or a combination of those three.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is quite expensive. It's something the organization should work on improving.

We use this product on a pay-per-use basis, Therefore, there is no licensing fee. It's embedded in the cost of using the Studio.

What other advice do I have?

We're just a Microsoft customer. We don't have a business relationship with Microsoft.

Currently, it is my understanding that we are using the latest version of the solution.

I'd recommend this product to other organizations.

Overall, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
