We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to use all of the cognitive services, prebuilt from Azure."
"The most valuable feature is data normalization."
"The UI is very user-friendly and that AI is easy to use."
"The solution is very fast and simple for a data science solution."
"Anyone who isn't a programmer his whole life can adopt it. All he needs is statistics and data analysis skills."
"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 AutoML is helpful when you're starting to explore the problem that you're trying to solve."
"The interface is very intuitive."
"The features for model comparison, the feature for model testing, evaluation, and deployment are very nice. It can work almost with all the models."
"The inferencing and processing capabilities are quite beneficial for our requirements."
"The initial setup is quite simple."
"If you want to be able to deploy your tools outside of Microsoft Azure, this is not the best choice."
"The data cleaning functionality is something that could be better and needs to be improved."
"When you use different Microsoft tools, there are different pricing metrics. It doesn't make sense. The pricing metrics are quire difficult to understand and should be either clarified or simplified. It would help us sell the solution to customers."
"The solution should be more customizable. There should be more algorithms."
"A problem that I encountered was that I had to pay for the model that I wanted to deploy and use on Azure Machine Learning, but there wasn't any option that that model can be used in the designer."
"Integration with social media would be a valuable enhancement."
"The AutoML feature is very basic and they should improve it by using a more robust algorithm."
"The data preparation capabilities need to be improved."
"It has some disadvantages because when you're working with very complex models, neural networks if OpenVINO cannot convert them automatically and you have to do a custom layer and later add it to the model. It is difficult."
"The model optimization is a little bit slow — it could be improved."
"At this point, the product could probably just use a greater integration with more machine learning model tools."
"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."
"From a developer's perspective, I find the price of this solution high."
"The licensing cost is very cheap. It's less than $50 a month."
"We didn't have to pay for any licensing with Intel OpenVINO. Everything is available on their site and easily downloadable for free."
Azure Machine Learning is a cloud predictive analytics service that makes it possible to quickly create and deploy predictive models as analytics solutions.
It has everything you need to create complete predictive analytics solutions in the cloud, from a large algorithm library, to a studio for building models, to an easy way to deploy your model as a web service. Quickly create, test, operationalize, and manage predictive models.
OpenVINO toolkit quickly deploys applications and solutions that emulate human vision. Based on Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), the toolkit extends computer vision (CV) workloads across Intel hardware, maximizing performance. The OpenVINO toolkit includes the Deep Learning Deployment Toolkit (DLDT).
Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio is ranked 1st in AI Development Platforms with 14 reviews while OpenVINO is ranked 3rd in AI Development Platforms with 3 reviews. Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio is rated 7.6, while OpenVINO is rated 8.6. The top reviewer of Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio writes "Good support for Azure services in pipelines, but deploying outside of Azure is difficult". On the other hand, the top reviewer of OpenVINO writes "Open-source, easy to integrate, and perfectly tailored to the Movidius chipset". Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio is most compared with Databricks, IBM Watson Studio, Alteryx, Dataiku Data Science Studio and Amazon SageMaker, whereas OpenVINO is most compared with TensorFlow, PyTorch, Caffe, Google Cloud AI Platform and IBM Watson OpenScale.
