KNIME Valuable Features

Business Intelligence Consultant at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
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 basic machine learning and obviously. After that, we connected it with Tableau visualization. Now we are writing the big data part of our solution along with the overall machine learning. These two parts will be the most important for our business going forward. I think also connectivity with hybrid databases and also integration with languages like Python are great advantages to what we are seeking to do in our environment. We have been using these features extensively and we find them to be very valuable in achieving what we hoped to achieve with the tool. View full review »

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, and ease of subsequent changes. * Unlimited volume of data; you are only limited by the machine you run on. * Python and R integration. * Predictive functionality and text analytics. If it is not enough then you can use custom Python and R scripts. * Looping functionality. * Variables allow you to parameterize your flows. * Run one node at a time, which is something that Alteryx users dream of doing. * Managing (collapsing) sub-flows, which is another thing that Alteryx container users also dream of.

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.
