We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It helped us find find the optimal area for where our warehouse should be located."
"The best part of Anaconda is the media distribution that comes as part of it. It gets us started very quickly."
"The most advantageous feature is the logic building."
"The solution is stable."
"The notebook feature is an improvement over RStudio."
"The most valuable feature is the set of libraries that are used to support the functionality that we require."
"The most valuable feature is the Jupyter notebook that allows us to write the Python code, compile it on the fly, and then look at the results."
"The virtual environment is very good."
"Personally for me, because I do a lot of development, I like that it is easy to test mathematical algorithms with several matrix calculations. It's perfect for that."
"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."
"To make use of the GPU, you have to have an Nvidia card. What I would want it to do is to run in Next Generation with Intel or AMD, and not just with Nvidia."
