I think that Modeler needs to be more commercially effective because, of the competing tools, some of them are free and others are available at a very nominal cost. When you are not using the product, such as during the pandemic where we had worldwide lockdowns, you still have to pay for the licensing. It is just wasting the term and they should have suspended the fees and extended the licensing timeline. Essentially, you can't stop it, even if you're not using it, and it is a little difficult to accept the cost in such situations. What we really need is some flexible terms with respect to the renewal or a break from the strict license timeline. View full review »

Dimension reduction is very important, especially if you are working with millions of recordings and thousands of variables. It exists already, but it should be classified separately. The solution could be improved by adding a feature for statistical analysis like processes. They have some in the output, but not in the modes itself. I hope they can add statistical knowledge to the solution. View full review »

This is an expensive predicament software solution. Currently, the terminals offer the tools for the data analytics, but it needs development. There's a limit to the license. For the data analytics, it's very similar to Tableau. The solution has lots of branches, departments and the teams - that makes it quite a complex solution. We don't always use or need the major developmental version. We care about the KPI. We only care about the KPI reporting so it would be helpful if things were simplified. View full review »

I actually think it is a great product. Maybe there could be some enhancement with more extensive help built into the interface. This could help end-users to understand the features as well as how to use them. Apart from that, it is a great product. View full review »
