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

Pros
The best part is that they have an algorithm handbook, so you can open it up and understand how it works, and if it is useful, this is very important.Some of the most valuable features that we are using with some business models are machine learning algorithms, statistical models given to us by the business, and getting data from the database or text files.Most of the product features are good but I particularly like the linear regression analysis.It has helped our analyst unit deliver work with more transparency and confidence, given that we can always view the dataset in totality, after each step of data transformation.The learning curve to using this product is not steep. The program is appropriate for those who do not have a lot of background in programming, yet have to perform basic statistical analysis.

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 most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to use all of the cognitive services, prebuilt from Azure.Visualisation, and the possibility of sharing functions are key features.It is very easy to test different kinds of machine-learning algorithms with different parameters. You choose the algorithm, drag and drop to the workspace, and plug the dataset into this component.When you import the dataset you can see the data distribution easily with graphics and statistical measures.Split dataset, variety of algorithms, visualizing the data, and drag and drop capability are the features I appreciate most.MLS allows me to set up data experiments by running through various regression and other machine learning algorithms, with different data cleaning and treatment tools. All of this can be achieved via drag and drop, and a few clicks of the mouse.The graphical nature of the output makes it very easy to create PowerPoint reports as well.

Cons
The statistics should be more self-explanatory with detailed automated reports.Technical support needs some improvement, as they do not respond as quickly as we would like.I think the visualization and charting should be changed and made easier and more effective.Needs more statistical modelling functions.

Integration with social media would be a valuable enhancement.If you want to be able to deploy your tools outside of Microsoft Azure, this is not the best choice.Operability with R could be improved.I would like to see modules to handle Deep Learning frameworks.I personally would prefer if data could be tunneled to my model through a SAP ERP system, and have features of Excel, such as Pivot Tables, integrated.Enable creating ensemble models easier, adding more machine learning algorithms.​It could use to add some more features in data transformation, time series and the text analytics section.Microsoft should also include more examples and tutorials for using this product.​

Pricing and Cost Advice
We think that IBM SPSS is expensive for this function.Our licence is on a yearly renewal basis. While pricing is not the primary concern in our evaluation, as products are assessed by whether they can meet our user needs and expertise, the cost can be a limiting factor in the number of licences we procure.

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.To use MLS is fairly cheap. Even the paid account is something like $20/month, unless you are provisioning large numbers of VMs for a Hadoop cluster. The main MS makes money with this solution is forcing the user to deploy their model on REST API, and being charged each time the API is accessed. There are several pricing tiers for the API. If you do not use the API, then value of MLS is to create rapid experiments ($20/month). The resulting model is not exportable to use, thus you’ll have to recreate the algorithms in either R or Python, which is what I did. MLS results gave me a direction to work with, the actual work is mostly done in R and Python outside of MLS.
