We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Automated modelling, classification, or clustering are very useful.A lot of jobs that are stuck in Excel due to the huge numbers of rows are tackled pretty quickly.It's very easy to use. The drag and drop feature makes it very easy when you are building and testing the streams. That's very useful.It makes pretty good use of memory. There are algorithms take a long time to run in R, and somehow they run more efficiently in Modeler.New algorithms are added into every version of Modeler, e.g., SMOTE, random forest, etc. The Derive node is used for the syntax code to derive the data.We use analytics with the visual modeling capability to leverage productivity improvements.It’s definitely scalable, it’s all on the same platform, it’s well integrated. I think the integration is important in terms of scalablility because essentially, having the entire suite helps a lot to scale itThe ease of use in the user interface is the best part of it. The ability to customize some of my streams with R and Python has been very useful to me, I've automated a few things with that.

The documentation for this solution is very good, where each operator is explained with how to use it.I like not having to write all solutions from code. Being able to drag and drop controls, enables me to focus on building the best model, without needing to search for syntax errors or extra libraries.Using the GUI, I can have models and algorithms drag and drop nodes.RapidMiner for Windows is an excellent graphical tool for data science.

Cons
Customer support is hard to contact.It is not integrated with Qlik, Tableau, and Power BI.Expensive to deploy solutions. You need to buy an extra deployment unit.I understand that it takes some time to incorporate some of the new algorithms that have come out in the last few months, in the literature. For example, there is an algorithm based on how ants search for food. And there are some algorithms that have now been developed to complement rules. So that's one of the things that we need to have incorporated into it.The standard package (personal) is not supported for database connection.Unstructured data is not appropriate for SPSS Modeler.Regarding visual modeling, it is not the biggest strength of the product, although from what I hear in the latest release it's going to be a lot stronger. That, to me, has always been the biggest flaw in using this. It's very difficult to get good visualization.I think mapping for geographic data would also be a really great thing to be able to use.

The price of this solution should be improved.The server product has been getting updated and continues to be better each release. When I started using RapidMiner, it was solid but not easy to set up and upgrade.Improve the online data services.

Pricing and Cost Advice
When you are close to end of quarter, IBM and its partners can get you 60% to 70% discounts, so literally wait for the last day of the quarter for the best prices. You may feel like you are getting robbed if you can't receive a good discount.It got us a good amount of money with quick and efficient modeling.The scalability was kind of limited by our ability to get other people licenses, and that was usually more of a financial constraint. It's expensive, but it's a good tool.It is a huge increase to time savings.

I used an educational license for this solution, which is available free of charge.
