We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The Cloudera Data Science Workbench is customizable and easy to use."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to use all of the cognitive services, prebuilt from Azure."
"The most valuable feature is data normalization."
"The UI is very user-friendly and that AI is easy to use."
"The solution is very fast and simple for a data science solution."
"Anyone who isn't a programmer his whole life can adopt it. All he needs is statistics and data analysis skills."
"The most valuable feature is the knowledge bank, which allows us to ask questions and the AI will automatically pull the pre-prescribed responses."
"The AutoML is helpful when you're starting to explore the problem that you're trying to solve."
"The interface is very intuitive."
"Running this solution requires a minimum of 12GB to 16GB of RAM."
"If you want to be able to deploy your tools outside of Microsoft Azure, this is not the best choice."
"The data cleaning functionality is something that could be better and needs to be improved."
"When you use different Microsoft tools, there are different pricing metrics. It doesn't make sense. The pricing metrics are quire difficult to understand and should be either clarified or simplified. It would help us sell the solution to customers."
"The solution should be more customizable. There should be more algorithms."
"A problem that I encountered was that I had to pay for the model that I wanted to deploy and use on Azure Machine Learning, but there wasn't any option that that model can be used in the designer."
"Integration with social media would be a valuable enhancement."
"The AutoML feature is very basic and they should improve it by using a more robust algorithm."
"The data preparation capabilities need to be improved."
"When we got our first models and were ready for the user acceptance testing, our licensing fees were between €2,500 ($2,750 USD) and €3,000 ($3,300 USD) monthly."
"From a developer's perspective, I find the price of this solution high."
"The licensing cost is very cheap. It's less than $50 a month."
