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

Pros
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.Custom tables and macros: They allow us to create useful reports quickly for a broad audience.in terms of the simplicity, I think the SPSS basic can handle it.

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.Scalability, in terms of running experiments concurrently is good. At max, I was able to run three different experiments concurrently.Its ability to publish a predictive model as a web based solution and integrate R and python codes are amazing.

Cons
Needs more statistical modelling functions.Better documentation on how to use macros.Perhaps in terms of visualization. It's not really easy to do some data visualization, just simple, descriptive analysis in SPSS. I think that could be an area for improvement.

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
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.More affordable training for new staff members.If it requires lot of data processing, maybe switching to IBM SPSS Clementine would be better for the buyer.

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.
