What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to use all of the cognitive services, prebuilt from Azure. You just have to drag and drop the services into your pipeline, and it can be applied through the pipeline. It's very… more»

What needs improvement?

If you want to be able to deploy your tools outside of Microsoft Azure, this is not the best choice. One of the problems that we had was that you could only execute the model inside the machine learning environment. Comparing this to… more»

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

When we started using this solution, our licensing fees were approximately €1,000 (approximately $1,100 USD) monthly, but it was fluctuating. When we got our first models and were ready for the user acceptance testing, our licensing fees… more»

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

We did not use another solution prior to this one, but we now use Azure Databricks.

What other advice do I have?

Microsoft has increased the usability and the features since we first implemented this solution. If I had to start this process over again, I would involve Microsoft earlier because they were great for providing support, as well as guidance… more»

What is most valuable?

MLS allows me to set up data experiments by running through various regression and other machine learning algorithms, with different data cleaning and treatment tools. All… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Not widely adopted at my old workplace, I only used this to create quick proofs of concept to try to convince management of the viability of a project.

What needs improvement?

Enable creating ensemble models easier, adding more machine learning algorithms.

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

To use MLS is fairly cheap. Even the paid account is something like $20/month, unless you are provisioning large numbers of VMs for a Hadoop cluster. The main MS makes… more»

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

The only other solution beyond this would be standard tools used by data scientists, like R, Python, etc. All of these would have a fairly high barrier to entry, requiring… more»

What other advice do I have?

For data science professionals or programmers I would rate this solution a four out of 10. A major feature is missing: creating ensemble models. This can be achieved with… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

R and Python. Python + Pandas + scikit-learn: Pros: * scikit-learn offers better performance for extremely large data sets * Large-data manipulation tools * Fairly good… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the knowledge bank, which allows us to ask questions and the AI will automatically pull the pre-prescribed responses. This reduces our resources and costs. The user interface that we have is relatively simple.

How has it helped my organization?

We have reduced the theme size front-line agents by ten percent using the AI elements on chat and email response.

What needs improvement?

Some of the terminologies, or the way that the questions are asked, could be stronger. When people use local colloquialisms, it would be better if it understood rather than forwarding it to an agent. If the frontline efficiencies were… more»

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

The previous solution that we were using was based on the Aspect platform. It was fifteen years old, which is why we reviewed it. We weren't able to offer any kind of AI or omnichannel experience using that platform, as its pure telephony… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to be prepared to take a slow approach to get the best results. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this solution is that the strategic outsourcing contact will need to… more»

What is most valuable?

* It is very easy to test different kinds of machine-learning algorithms with different parameters. You choose the algorithm, drag and drop to the workspace, and plug the dataset into this component… more»

How has it helped my organization?

With this tool we could have all benefits of a cloud environment, such as scalability and access to machine-learning applications. These features are very important when you have large datasets and… more»

What needs improvement?

For my project/exercise, this tools was perfect. I would like to see modules to handle Deep Learning frameworks.

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

There are two kinds of licenses, Free and Standard. Free * 100 modules per experiment. * 1 hour per experiment. * 10GB storage space. * Single Node Execution/Performance. Standard – $9.99/seat/month… more»

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

Nowadays I use Python (Anaconda and Jupyter Notebook) and R (RStudio) to create my solutions and machine-learning models.

What other advice do I have?

You will be able to create your machine-learning project and extract insights from it just by dragging and dropping components and adjusting some parameters. This tool is very user-friendly, so… more»

What is most valuable?

Right now, we are just testing the customer insights from Microsoft. The UI is very user-friendly and that AI is easy to use. Usually, we also use the machine learning studio to build up the data logistics in machine learning.

What needs improvement?

On the customer side, the solution should do more to push companion marketing. When you use different Microsoft tools, there are different pricing metrics. It doesn't make sense. The pricing metrics are quire difficult to understand and… more»

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

The pricing and licensing are difficult to explain to clients. Their rationale for what things cost and why are not easy to explain.

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

I've only ever worked with Microsoft Azure. We didn't previously use a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant. Our company is partners with Microsoft. Users will find it easy to get into Azure. Even if they aren't always in touch with Azure, they'll find themselves in touch with the dynamic field. Users have to get into Azure… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is data normalization.

What needs improvement?

The data cleaning functionality is something that could be better and needs to be improved. There should be special pricing for developers so that they can learn this solution without paying full price.

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

From a developer's perspective, I find the price of this solution high. If somebody wants to learn how to use this platform then they have to spend money doing it. I know people who are interested in learning it but do not want to pay the full cost.

What other advice do I have?

Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio is a good solution that would recommend to others, but I would like to see more support and more information available for developers. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

* Split dataset * variety of algorithms * visualizing the data * drag and drop capability are the features I appreciate most. The capability to model the data by finding empty cells and filling missing values by deriving the median and more, are great features that makes the job way easier.

How has it helped my organization?

Thanks to the model I designed, the productivity of processing invoices has increased by over 11%, because the team members only verify invoices that are discrepancy-free now.

What needs improvement?

I personally would prefer if data could be tunneled to my model through a SAP ERP system. It also needs features of Excel, such as Pivot Tables, integrated.

What is most valuable?

Its ability to publish a predictive model as a web based solution and integrate R and Python codes are amazing. It helps in building customized models, which are easy for clients to use.

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped in reducing the time involved for coding using R and/or Python. Also, web service is quite easy and convenient to use for clients.

What needs improvement?

It could use to add some more features in data transformation, time series and the text analytics section. Microsoft should also include more examples and tutorials for using this product.
