Cons
"The ability to handle large amounts of data and performance in processing need to be improved.""I would like to see better web scraping because every time I tried, it was not up to par, although you can use Python script.""It needs more examples, use cases, and MOOC to learn, especially with respect to the algorithms and how to practically create a flow from end-to-end.""There should be better documentation and the steps should be easier.""KNIME needs to provide more documentation and training materials, including webinars or online seminars.""The predefined workflows could use a bit of improvement.""The documentation is lacking and it could be better."

More KNIME Cons »

"The user interface of the solution needs improvement. It needs to be more visual.""The solution is very stable, but we do have some problems with discrepancies involving SAS not matching with the latest Java versions. It's not stable in cases where SAS tries to run on a different version because SAS doesn't connect with the latest Java update. Once a month we need to restart systems from scratch.""The solution needs an easier interface for the user. The user experience isn't so easy for our clients.""Virtualization could be much better.""The ease of use can be improved. When you are new it seems a bit complex.""The visualization of the models is not very attractive, so the graphics should be improved.""Technical support could be improved.""While I don't personally need tutorials, I can't say that it wouldn't be helpful for others to have some to help them navigate and operate the system."
