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

Pros
It provides very fast problem solving and I don't need to do much coding in it. I just drag and drop.Key features include: very easy-to-use visual interface; Help functions and clear explanations of the functionalities and the used algorithms; Data Wrangling and data manipulation functionalities are certainly sufficient, as well as the looping possibilities which help you to automate parts of the analysis.Clear view of the data at every step of ETL process enables changing the flow as needed.We leverage KNIME flexibility in order to query data from our database and manipulate them for any ad-hoc business case, before presenting results to stakeholders.The product is very easy to understand even for non-analytical stakeholders. Sometimes we provide them with KNIME workflows and teach them how to run it on their own machine.Easy to connect with every database: We use queries from SQL, Redshift, Oracle.We are able to automate several functions which were done manually. I can integrate several data sets quickly and easily, to support analytics.Valuable features include visual workflow creation, workflow variables (parameterisation), automatic caching of all intermediate data sets in the workflow, scheduling with the server.

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
They could add more detailed examples of the functionality of every node, how it works and how we can use it, to make things easier at the beginning.The visualization functionalities are not good (cannot be compared to, for instance, the possibilities in R).The program is not fit for handling very large files or databases (greater than 1GB); it gets too slow and has a tendency to crash easily.‚ÄčThe data visualization part is the area most in need of improvement.The overall user experience feels unpolished. In particular: Data field type conversion is a real hassle, and date fields are a hassle; documentation is pretty poor; user community is average at best.Data visualization needs improvement.I'd like something that would make it easier to connect/parse websites, although I will fully admit that I'm not as proficient in KNIME as I would like to be, so it could be I'm just missing something.I would like it to have data visualitation capabilities. Today I'm still creating my own data visualtions tools to present my reports.

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.
