KNIME Other Advice

We have done a few projects with some of our clients in KNIME. In these cases, we mainly used KNIME because of its ability to work in a data center environment in an enterprise system. This was one of the most important things that we were looking for. The second point was that KNIME is an open-source analytics platform. The point is that if some client has less data or a relatively small database, then we can use the open-source platform instead of using Alteryx, which is fairly expensive. These are the options we advise our clients about. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as an eight out of ten. I honestly do not feel familiar enough with this product that my rating is accurate as I need to be more familiar with it over time. On the other hand, I have used KNIME and other tools in a similar category — like Informatica and Alteryx. Informatica is purely a data warehouse software. Alteryx is something we use frequently. So I have used three ETL tools. If I compared KNIME with Alteryx which are the most similar of the three, then I think KNIME is much better for our purposes. Strictly as a comparison with Alteryx, I would rate KNIME as an eight. View full review »

Senior Data Scientist
I’ve been using KNIME for more than four years now. I started using it in the company I was working for in Rome (Paddy Power Italy), then I moved to headquarters in Dublin (Paddy Power Ireland/UK) and started using it for their business. Eventually, I moved to the United States and started using it for my current company (TVG-Betfair) and it is currently the main analytics tool in both our offices (New Jersey and Los Angeles). I would definitely rate it a nine out of 10. I am very happy with the product and it would be hard to find something better in the market. View full review »

I rate it a seven out of 10. It's very useful but needs polish and improved UX and UI in several areas. For quick adoption, either get KNIME to provide training, or have a local knowledge expert on hand who is well versed with data workflow tools, and databases if necessary. View full review »
