If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

I'm just a student. I was learning about machine learning via this product. I'm not sure which deployment model we are using. I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. I would advise other potential users to just start using it. If they really want to learn it, it will take a bit of time. Even though it's easy to use, you need some knowledge in data science. That will help make the process easier.

If you want to build a solution quickly without knowing any coding, it's pretty good to start with. I will take a week to learn, from my experience. For anyone who is interested in trying it, they should start with the free version, which is free for up to 10 gigabytes of workspace. Just log in and start developing and exploring the tool before onboarding. I would rate Microsoft Azure Machine Learning a seven out of ten.

We're just a Microsoft customer. We don't have a business relationship with Microsoft. Currently, it is my understanding that we are using the latest version of the solution. I'd recommend this product to other organizations. Overall, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten.

The major advice I give is that clients must get the user,somebody who understands the business issues, to be deeply involved with it and the data transformation. Most people don't. And that's true for data science applications. We don't just follow the data in a big pile and remodel, we advance the process that we're modeling. Consider what transformations of the data you need to make it workable and usable. Remember, over half the initial value of modeling is the strategic understanding provided re the importance of different variables to the model and hence the organizaion's performance. Very often the modeling identifies opportunities for changing structures, decision rules, etc. even prior to the model's actual implementation technically. I would rate it a nine out of ten.

I would Definitely recommend Azure Machine Learning Studio — no doubt about it, it's a full-contact solution. Having said that, it really depends on the customer's appetite and what they're comfortable with. For example, I have interacted with people who prefer a basic Google cloud platform — from an AML perspective, they just feel like it's primarily Google. Not because of AML per se, it's more from a data storage perspective, which in this case, works better. Personally, I come from a VFA site in the financial sector. Over there, the customers are really conscious about hosting their station or their data, especially on the cloud. Typically, they are very restricted because they are not comfortable hosting customer data on the cloud. This is where I think Azure or Google or even AWS fall short — they don't play any role there. Because of this, people actually customize their solutions or model them to fit their custom sites and customer-based solutions. Overall, I would give this solution a rating of seven. It's a great option if you are fairly new and don't want to write too much code. As long as the model is not too complex, it's a pretty easy solution to roll out.

I feel that this is a great solution. Even for people from the business side, this is a very good product. It is so intuitive that all of the information is there. The interface takes care of the most complex part, which has to do with the modeling. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I haven't done any research into what features they have on their roadmap. Overall, I think that this is a comparable product. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

It's an easy tool. They have a good level of resources and we are pretty low with resources as far as data science is concerned. Azure Machine Learning offers an opportunity for those who haven't been introduced to Azure programming. You can use the data analytics and their statistics skills to build and deploy data science solutions that can be beneficial for society and for different organizations. I would rate it a seven out of ten.

I would recommend the product. It's a solution that can cover all the processes from data preparation to mobilization data while serving the clients and production. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

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 because once they get into the cloud, they should have some basic understanding of Azure itself. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. However, I don't know their competitors, so I can't really compare them to others on the market.

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.

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 have a strategy for the next three to five years because the efficiencies that we will be gaining from AI will reduce the requirements on physical staff doing traditional roles. However, the support element will increase. It means that the roles will change and evolve over the next three to five years within the UK contact center based on the deployment of AI. I think that we probably didn't start from the point that would have benefited us most in terms of the AI. Had we put more research into the front end then there would have been a lot less work during the implementation. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

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 on the architecture and what kind of stuff you can do with the tool, and what you should do with it. This was very helpful to orient the team to the right documentation and tutorials. The second thing I would do is to start working with DevOps activity as soon as you can. We found ourselves redoing the same things many times, instead of having a DevOps pipeline to implement the stuff that we already stabilized, for example, and then not losing time. The third thing is involving an integrator to help put together the big picture. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
