Feature-rich ETL that condenses a number of functions into one tool
In terms of improvement, the transition from the desktop to the cloud can be challenging. While the desktop piece works seamlessly within the company's security architecture, when you load workflows onto the cloud, the same connections don't translate due to firewall issues. It would be beneficial if this transition could be made more seamless and straightforward for users. The solution is already feature-rich and doesn't require any improvements. Their current versions are ahead of the curve. Their machine learning and predictive modeling features place them at the forefront. Some advanced features are more than what's needed for our regular business purposes.

"Alteryx has made us more agile and increased the speed and effectiveness of decision making."
"The most valuable feature of Alteryx is its unlimited handling capabilities."
"I like that I can merge data from different sources into one place."
"The solution is very intuitive and powerful."
"We value the collaboration and governance features because it's a comprehensive platform that covers everything from data extraction to modeling operations in the ML language. RapidMiner is competitive in the ML space."
"Using the GUI, I can have models and algorithms drag and drop nodes."
"It is easy to use and has a huge community that I can rely on for help. Moreover, it is interactive."
"RapidMiner for Windows is an excellent graphical tool for data science."
"The most valuable feature of RapidMiner is that it can read a large number of file formats including CSV, Excel, and in particular, SPSS."
"The most valuable feature is what the product sets out to do, which is extracting information and data."
"The most valuable feature of RapidMiner is that it is code free. It is similar to playing with Lego pieces and executing after you are finished to see the results. Additionally, it is easy to use and has interesting utilities when preparing the data. It has a utility to automatically launch a series of models and show the comparisons. When finished with the comparisons you can select the best one, and deploy it automatically."


"Alteryx's predictive data models are pretty average and can be improved."
"Even when it already includes some AI models, this area could be improved."
"Mastering Alteryx, a comprehensive solution, takes time. However, once you have gained proficiency with its layout and how to drag, drop, and connect components, it becomes remarkably easy, yet still thorough."
"A colleague of mind mentioned that the solution should have more options for the visualization of data."
"All of the reports are migrated or exported in an Excel file, and most of the time, a business intelligence tool is required. They could have better reporting. The aesthetic could be improved."
"There are no ready models to use in analytics."
"The interface could be improved."
"The GUI interface functions but it could stand to be updated to a more modern look and feel."
"The server product has been getting updated and continues to be better each release. When I started using RapidMiner, it was solid but not easy to set up and upgrade."
"I would appreciate improvements in automation and customization options to further streamline processes."
"RapidMiner can improve deep learning by enhancing the features."
"RapidMiner isn't cheap. It's a complete solution, but it's costly."
"The price of this solution should be improved."
"I would like to see all users have access to all of the deep learning models, and that they can be used easily."
"The product must provide data-cleaning features."
"Many things in the interface look nice, but they aren't of much use to the operator. It already has lots of variables in there."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"I rate the solution's pricing as a ten, as it is highly priced."
"Alteryx is an expensive solution."
"It's very expensive. I'd rate it a four out of ten in terms of the price. It's great for big companies but not for small companies."
"The desktop platform costs $5,000 per year. It's very costly."
"A designer and scheduler for $13K/year in total is pretty much earning you the money back in time and in other resources."
"The seat is too expensive."
"There is a license required for this solution."
"I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features."
"Although we don't pay licensing fees because it is being used within the university, my understanding is that the cost is between $5,000 and $10,000 USD per year."
"I used an educational license for this solution, which is available free of charge."
"The client only has to pay the licensing costs. There are not any maintenance or hidden costs in addition to the license."
"I'm not fully aware of RapidMiner's price because we had licenses provided, but from my analysis, it's moderately priced, not too high or too low. It's worth the investment."
"For the university, the cost of the solution is free for the students and teachers."

I'd suggest checking out the new Actable AI as well. It has a better AutoML and a lot more advanced features like Causal ML.
