We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"All of the data science features in terms of unioning and joining data together are valuable."
"The scheduling feature for the automation is excellent."
"The product's Macros probably are one of the most useful aspects."
"The connectors are a very good feature."
"The solution has a very strong community that is involved in the product. It helps make the usage easier and helps us find answers to our questions."
"Shortens the time required to start analyzing data and looking for insights, minimizing the tasks that do not add value to the business and maximizing the analysis phase."
"This is a drag-and-drop tool which is easy-to-use and yet can be customized by creating your own components."
"The solution has been stable."
"The Cloudera Data Science Workbench is customizable and easy to use."
"The solution could work on the BI side of the tool to make it a bit better."
"The principal problem is the pricing. They're expensive products."
"The GUI interface functions but it could stand to be updated to a more modern look and feel."
"It should have Linux support. It currently supports only Windows. It does not support any other platform. Its price should also be lower. Their US partner management program is actually unresponsive. One of the reasons why we don't have a formalized partnership plan with them is because their partner management team is atrociously unresponsive. This is something that they need to change."
"The workflow and pipeline need to improve."
"The solution can be quite complex in some aspects."
"The technical support could have a little bit of improvement."
"There are a few imputation techniques which they really need to include."
"Running this solution requires a minimum of 12GB to 16GB of RAM."
"I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features."
"The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive."
"In order to have designers, and, if you want to collaborate, you have to buy a server. If the designer is $5,000, and if you want a server, you have to pay $80,000."
"We have a yearly cost that we pay for the licensing. We do not pay any costs in addition to the licensing fees."
"The license is really expensive, we cannot afford to have two or three. It takes away all the budget of my area."
"It is $4,000 a year, so it is cheap versus other solutions. It also accomplishes three times the volume on the job in the same time (as the other solutions)."
"There is a license required for this solution."
"There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else."
