What is most valuable?

The most valuable part of the solution is the machine learning part. The second feature that we use most is big data connectivity. When we deployed the architecture, we directed our IDS (Intrusion Detection System) server to where the big data will be on our servers. Then we needed some kind of… more »

How has it helped my organization?

While the product has not yet improved our organization, we expect to use it in full deployments with our clients to greatly reduce their costs and make our services more attractive.

What needs improvement?

One thing that I found was that in the open-source version of the KNIME analytics platform, we see difficulties in scheduling jobs. If the scheduler could be updated in the open-source version, the software will be easier to schedule properly and to use efficiently. The second time that I faced… more »

What other advice do I have?

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… more »

The features that I find most valuable are: * The visual workflow tools for custom and complex tasks always beat raw coding languages with the agility, speed to deliver… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It is a free open-source tool that performs very similarly to other expensive tools. KNIME has been great for me over the years. It allows me to connect to various sources… more »

What needs improvement?

The areas that I feel need improvement are: * It needs support for a joiner node to have three outputs (left unmatched, matched, right unmatched), as competitors do (have… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

KNIME is free as a stand-alone desktop-based platform but if you want to get a KNIME server then you can find the cost on their website. The fact that KNIME is open source… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Recently I have been using Alteryx so I have collected a few points on differences in both tools. Both are good, I can conclusively say I could go back to KNIME and be as… more »

What other advice do I have?

If you need a good Visualisation functionality, you should use Tableau or something of that caliber. However, the data prep can be done KNIME, which would give you extra… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

For this review, I would include Alteryx and Lavastorm (the latter is no longer available).

What is most valuable?

All of the features related to the ETL are fantastic. That includes the connectors to other programs, databases, and the meta node function. Technical support has been extremely responsive so far. The solution has a very strong and supportive community that shares information and helps each other troubleshoot. The solution is very stable. The initial setup is pretty simple and straightforward.

What needs improvement?

The user interface could be a little bit more comfortable. The usability, in general, could be much better. The predefined workflows could use a bit of improvement.

What other advice do I have?

We are KNIME partners and also provide KNIME training to clients as well. We're a startup, and we're in the startup phase, however, we are working to build more business relationships with KNIME. In my previous company, we were also partnered with KNIME. Currently, I'm working as a consultant and we have a customer who is using SAP Analytics, however, I am interested in learning more about the… more »

What is most valuable?

What I like the most is that it works almost out of the box with Random Forest and other Forest nodes.

What needs improvement?

It is difficult to say at this time, as I am not using the latest version. I have noticed that I don't have the latest modules that were added, such as ML. In my opinion, there's one thing lacking. As far as algorithm notes go, it would be… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's an open-source solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, I was using SPSS Statistics, although that was ten years ago. I had a gap in data mining and the statistic field as a whole.

What other advice do I have?

I am considering further courses and maybe some certification in the next year. I would strongly recommend KNIME. It's a modeling or statistics product that can be used by almost anyone with knowledge in the field. It works almost out of… more »

What is most valuable?

The nicest part of KNIME is that the designer tool is free. This solution is easy to use and it can be used to create any kind of model.

What needs improvement?

We are worried about the performance when it comes to using a lot of data that has many rows and columns. On the server-side, we are not sure whether KNIME can manage or handle large amounts of data without issue. It looks like it will easily work for small datasets but we are concerned about… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of KNIME is quite reasonable and the designer tool can be used free of charge.

What other advice do I have?

Many of our customers have streaming data and want to use an AI model. We do not yet know whether KNIME will handle live-streaming and it is something that we intend to test. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

How has it helped my organization?

It gives much insight about business in different aspects, from understanding product portfolio to clients, much of them arouse interests from important stakeholders

What needs improvement?

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. The learning curve is… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

One of the benefit for KNIME is free for desktop version, which is enough for small team work. It is worthy to try but prepare for times to search and learn. It is not… more »

I wrote Python in different IDE, however KNIME is easier to tackle with changes in data sources, processes, and expectations, etc. It is simple to work around with… more »

Official and structural online training is a must, which is now not enough. Or you can start something simple very easily but stuck to go deeper. However KNIME response is… more »

What is most valuable?

It's a coding-less opportunity to use AI. This is the major value for me.

What needs improvement?

I had some difficulty connecting to servers. It asked me to set something up on my server and it asked me for a code that I needed to generate on the server. There were several steps that I messed up. I followed all of the instructions but I couldn't manage it at all. I followed the directions in… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I tried Python and Microsoft.

What other advice do I have?

Some of the samples are outdated but my advice to someone considering KNIME is to use their samples. I would rate KNIME an eight out of ten. In the next release, the should have more comprehensive samples.
