We evaluated several different solutions because my company has a research and development plan. So, I used a variety of these solutions: Maple (I'm quite sure that MATLAB bought this company), Mathematica (another software for computation), IGOR — and other similar products. There were maybe seven or eight different solutions using different approaches to the same solution. We eventually switched to MATLAB because when we started to use it we saw it was very powerful for computation and very flexible. I would add Power BI to the list because it is more open than MATLAB. There are definitely many more people using it and it is much easier to use. It is not so complex and it is very fast to work with it. Teaching this in courses in our company, I know that within four hours guys are able to use it to make their own self-service report. That is not something that can be managed with MATLAB because you need to study MATLAB for several weeks to know it with the same depth. For production in some businesses, that product may be a much more powerful tool for many users than MATLAB. But there are many powerful tools that fit to different needs like Microsoft Power BI, Sisense, Tableau, Invent — there are many products and Gartner has tables comparing them. View full review »

Previously I did not use any other solution. I have always used MATLAB. I would like to make changes to other things but MATLAB has always been my number one choice. View full review »
