Pros
This open-source product can compete with category leaders in ELT software.This solution is easy to use and especially good at data preparation and wrapping.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.

Cons
The ability to handle large amounts of data and performance in processing need to be improved.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.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.

Virtualization could be much better.The solution needs an easier interface for the user. The user experience isn't so easy for our clients.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 user interface of the solution needs improvement. It needs to be more visual.
