Good machine learning algorithms and statistical models, but technical support needs to be more responsive
The primary use case of this solution is for collecting business data and reporting to upper management. Also, I am creating some regulatory and ad-hoc reports Some of the most valuable features that we are using with some business models are machine learning algorithms, statistical models given…

User interface is colorful, beautiful, and well-designed but sometimes the solution can be slow
I think the interface is very nice, but for somebody who is not as familiar with IT as I am, it may be much more difficult for them. It is nice for me because I'm familiar with this type of software that falls in the realm of the data science platform. I can see how a client who really doesn't know anything about IT or computers might try to use it and find that it would be a little difficult to access some features. That type of user may really need training in order to work with Dataiku. So, in the next release of Dataiku DSS (Data Science Studio), they should make it more friendly for everybody to use, not just IT people. For me, I find that it is a little slow during use. When I use Dataiku to run my script to transfer data, it takes more time than I would expect for the operation to complete.

Excellent product with a unique approach, allowing for almost no-code solutions but prebuilt nodes may not always perfectly fit complex needs
One thing to consider is that the prebuilt nodes may not always be a perfect fit for your specific needs, although most of the time, they work quite well. However, if you encounter very complex requirements, you might need to add custom code to achieve your desired outcomes. This is an area that could use some improvement, but the advantage is that it encourages you to evaluate and minimize coding efforts. As a result, you can reduce the overall amount of coding required, which is a positive aspect of KNIME. Another area that could be improved is related to the libraries. While they are quite extensive, they might not always match your exact needs. In such cases, you might have to do some coding to tailor the solution accordingly. Therefore, one area for improvement is the flexibility of prebuilt nodes, as they may not always match complex needs perfectly. Also, enhancing clarity on what the nodes do would be beneficial. For additional features, there are a couple of things that come to mind. Firstly, it would be great to have more clarity on what each node does. Sometimes, it's not very apparent, and additional information would be helpful. Secondly, it would be beneficial to have better ways to interact with and manage nodes, enhancing the user experience. And finally, I think KNIME could improve on how easily it allows for extending functionalities with custom code. Although it's relatively straightforward now, making it even more accessible would be advantageous.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The learning curve to using this product is not steep. The program is appropriate for those who do not have a lot of background in programming, yet have to perform basic statistical analysis."
"Since we are using the software as a statistical tool, I would say the best aspects of it are the regression and segmentation capabilities. That said, I've used it for all sorts of things."
"The most valuable features are the small learning curve and its ability to hold a lot of data."
"The software offers consistency across multiple research projects helping us with predictive analytics capabilities."
"The most valuable features mainly include factor analysis, correlation analysis, and geographic analysis."
"Most of the product features are good but I particularly like the linear regression analysis."
"The most valuable feature of IBM SPSS Statistics is all the functionality it provides. Additionally, it is simple to do the five-way analysis that you can into multidimensional setup space. It's the multidimensional space facility that is most useful."
"in terms of the simplicity, I think the SPSS basic can handle it."
"I like the interface, which is probably my favorite part of the solution. It is really user-friendly for an IT person."
"The most valuable feature is the set of visual data preparation tools."
"Extremely easy to use with its GUI-based functionality and large compatibility with various data sources. Also, maintenance processes are much more automated than ever, with fewer errors."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is that it is one tool that can do everything, and you have the ability to very easily push your design to prediction."
"Data Science Studio's data science model is very useful."
"Cloud-based process run helps in not keeping the systems on while processes are running."
"If many teams are collaborating and sharing Jupyter notebooks, it's very useful."
"The solution is quite stable."
"There are a lot of connectors available in KNIME."
"I would rate the stability of KNIME a ten out of ten."
"The ETL which helps me to collect, reformat, and load the data from multiple sources into one destination, a storage database."
"It is a stable solution...It is a scalable solution."
"One of the greatest advantages of KNIME is that it can be used by those without any coding experience. those with no coding background can use it."
"It provides very fast problem solving and I don't need to do much coding in it. I just drag and drop."
"It is very fast to develop solutions."
"The tool's analytic capabilities are good."


"The solution needs more planning tools and capabilities."
"It could provide even more in the way of automation as there are many opportunities."
"Better documentation on how to use macros."
"I think the visualization and charting should be changed and made easier and more effective."
"In some cases, the product takes time to load a large dataset. They could improve this particular area."
"I'd like to see them use more artificial intelligence. It should be smart enough to do predictions and everything based on what you input."
"This solution is not suitable for use with Big Data."
"If there is any self-generation data collection plan (DCP), it would be helpful in gathering data. It would also be useful if there is a function to scale it up to, let's say, UiPath and have it consolidate and integrate into a UiPath solution."
"Server up-time needs to be improved. Also, query engines like Spark and Hive need to be more stable."
"The interface for the web app can be a bit difficult. It needs to have better capabilities, at least for developers who like to code. This is due to the fact that everything is enabled in a single window with different tabs. For them to actually develop and do the concurrent testing that needs to be done, it takes a bit of time. That is one improvement that I would like to see - from a web app developer perspective."
"Although known for Big Data, the processing time to process 1.8 billion records was terribly slow (five days)."
"There were stability issues: 1) SQL operations, such as partitioning, had bugs and showed wrong results. 2) Due to server downtime, scheduled processes used to fail. 3) Access to project folders was compromised (privacy issue) with wrong people getting access to confidential project folders."
"I think it would help if Data Science Studio added some more features and improved the data model."
"Dataiku still needs some coding, and that could be a difference where business data scientists would go for DataRobot more than Dataiku."
"The ability to have charts right from the explorer would be an improvement."
"I find that it is a little slow during use. It takes more time than I would expect for operations to complete."
"Compared to the other data tools on the market, the user interface can be improved."
"KNIME is not scalable."
"There should be better documentation and the steps should be easier."
"I would prefer to have more connectivity."
"I'd like something that would make it easier to connect/parse websites, although I will fully admit that I'm not as proficient in KNIME as I would like to be, so it could be I'm just missing something."
"The predefined workflows could use a bit of improvement."
"To enhance accessibility and user-friendliness, there is a need for improvements in the interface and usability of deep learning and large-scale learning languages."
"I would like to see better web scraping because every time I tried, it was not up to par, although you can use Python script."
