Cons
"I would suggest that Amazon SageMaker provide free slots to allow customers to practice, such as a free slot to try out working with a Sandbox.""AI is a new area and AWS needs to have an internship training program available.""Lacking in some machine learning pipelines.""Scalability to handle big data can be improved by making integration with networks such as Hadoop and Apache Spark easier."

"I think better documentation or a step-by-step guide for installation would help, especially for on-premise users.""The ability to schedule scripts for the building and monitoring of jobs would be an advantage for this platform.""The interface could be improved. Other solutions, like Visual Studio, have much better UI.""One feature that I would like to see is being able to use a different language in a different cell, which would allow me to mix R and Python together.""I think that the framework can be improved to make it easier for people to discover and use things on their own.""Having a small guide or video on the tool would help learn how to use it and what the features are.""The solution would benefit from offering more automation.""One thing that hurts the product is that the company is not doing more to advertise it as a solution and make it more well known."
