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."
"The setup is straightforward. Deployment doesn't take more than 30 minutes."
"The solution is very good for data mining or any mining issues."
"he solution is scalable."
"Most of the features, especially on the data analysis tool pack, are really good. The way they do clustering and output is great. You can do fairly elaborate outputs. The results, the ensembles, all of these, are fantastic."
"The most valuable feature is the decision tree creation."
"The most valuable feature is that you can use multiple algorithms for creating models and then you can compare the results between them."
"Good data management and analytics."
"The solution is able to handle quite large amounts of data beautifully."
"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."
"The user interface of the solution needs improvement. It needs to be more visual."
"The solution is very stable, but we do have some problems with discrepancies involving SAS not matching with the latest Java versions. It's not stable in cases where SAS tries to run on a different version because SAS doesn't connect with the latest Java update. Once a month we need to restart systems from scratch."
"The solution needs an easier interface for the user. The user experience isn't so easy for our clients."
"Virtualization could be much better."
"The ease of use can be improved. When you are new it seems a bit complex."
"The visualization of the models is not very attractive, so the graphics should be improved."
"Technical support could be improved."
"While I don't personally need tutorials, I can't say that it wouldn't be helpful for others to have some to help them navigate and operate the system."
"The licensing costs for Anaconda are reasonable."
"The product is open-source and free to use."
"This solution is for large corporations because not everybody can afford it."
"The solution is expensive for an individual, but for an enterprise/institution (purchasing bulk licenses), it is not a high price for the use that will come from it."
