If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering SAS Enterprise Miner, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
We did not deploy this solution for our customer. Rather, we used Enterprise Miner to create a solution that was operationalized for production. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
If they are sure of what they want to do with the product then it is more than enough. The important part is that you have to know what you want it to be used for. Overall it is a good solution. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
I'm a SAS Enterprise Miner certified professional. I'm both a consultant and a user of the solution. Our company is using the on-premises deployment model, although we mostly use in-house products. I use the desktop version for our clients. We might use the Cloud, depending on what the client is comfortable with. Most of our clients are enterprises. I'd advise others considering implementing the solution to look at the costs and licensing to see if it is within your organization's budget. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
We use the cloud deployment model. Our clients want to use more popular and more open-source tools, so SAS isn't so popular in our region. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. I'd rate the solution higher if it was easier to use. Right now, it requires too much effort to explain the tool to clients.
We were using the on-premises deployment model, however recently we switched solutions and now we are using FICO instead of SAS. I'd recommend an open-source product over SAS, as I believe them to be the future. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
Currently, I am using the desktop version of the solution, but I do plan to move to the cloud. In terms of advice, I'd tell other organizations to be specific about their use case as there are many components that can be used. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
