The solution is good for small scale implementation. Other solutions should be considered for enterprise level implementation. I rate KNIME as a five or six out of ten.

The best way to use the solution is to dive in, get practice and use it more. I rate KNIME as a nine out of ten.

I am both consultant and a vendor right now. We do a bit of consultant work for some of our clients and we give the tutorials to them. We typically get in touch with them, and they send what they need and we do the distribution for them. I'd recommend new users have their requirements sorted out first so that they know what they need out of the tool. If that is clear, they can install the custom content required in KNIME to get their analytics done correctly. If that is there, then it's a piece of cake. Overall, I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. If the user interface was better and it offered better technical support, I would rate it higher.

This is a very handy tool and I use it quite interactively. I am not an expert-level user and it pretty much has everything that I need. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I am quite supportive of this product. It has been helpful in automating a few of my accounting activities. Digital groups such as Knime have great potential, but there needs to be more aggressiveness with marketing. There are many executives that do not know what Knime is. My journey starts by explaining what Knime is and what the functionalities are. I like Knime, and I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

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 the box. For starters, it's approximately two hours of watching videos and/or reading the documentation, and then off you go. I built my first working model in two days when I started using KNIME, and it only needed to be tweaked. It was impressive. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

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 differences between KNIME and SAP Analytics. That's something I'm looking at right now. We would definitely recommend this solution to other organizations. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I don't know if there's a tool better than this particular product, however, there's always room for improvement on any technology.

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.

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.

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 confidence that what goes into your Visualisation layer is correct. Overall, KNIME is definitely worth considering.

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.

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 very prompt.
