Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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.""The solution is quite stable.""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.""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.""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.""If many teams are collaborating and sharing Jupyter notebooks, it's very useful."

"It is a stable solution...It is a scalable solution.""The most useful features are the readily available extensions that speed up the work.""The most valuable is the ability to seamlessly connect operators without the need for extensive programming.""It allows for a user-friendly approach where you can simply drag and drop elements to create your model, which is a convenient and effective idea.""I was able to apply basic algorithms through just dragging and dropping.""The most valuable features of KNIME are its ability to convert your sub-workflow into a node. For example, the workflow has many individual native nodes that can be converted into a single node. This representation has simplified my workflow to a great extent. I can present my workflow in a very compact way.""Clear view of the data at every step of ETL process enables changing the flow as needed.""This open-source product can compete with category leaders in ELT software."

More KNIME Pros →

"Server up-time needs to be improved. Also, query engines like Spark and Hive need to be more stable.""Although known for Big Data, the processing time to process 1.8 billion records was terribly slow (five days).""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.""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.""In the next release of this solution, I would like to see deep learning better integrated into the tool and not simply an extension or plugin.""I find that it is a little slow during use. It takes more time than I would expect for operations to complete."

More Dataiku Cons →

"Though I can use KNIME in a 64-bit platform in the lab, it's missing some features. For example, from my laptop, I can use the image reader feature of KNIME. However, in the lab, the image reader node is missing.""System resource usage. Knime will occupy total system RAM size and other applications will hang.""​The data visualization part is the area most in need of improvement.""It's difficult to provide input on the improvement area because it's more of self-learning. However, there are times when I am not able to do certain things. I don't know if it's because the solution doesn't allow me or if it's because of the lack of knowledge.""Compared to the other data tools on the market, the user interface can be improved.""It needs more examples, use cases, and MOOC to learn, especially with respect to the algorithms and how to practically create a flow from end-to-end.""They could add more detailed examples of the functionality of every node, how it works and how we can use it, to make things easier at the beginning.""They should look at other vendors like Alteryx that are more user friendly and modern."

    Top Answer:Since KNIME is a no-code platform, it is easy to work with.
    Top Answer:We're using the free academic license just locally. I went for KNIME because they have a free academic license. And to be honest, I never bothered to check the prices.
    Top Answer:KNIME is not good at visualization. I would like to see NLQ (Natural language query) and automated visualizations added to KNIME.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the KNIME solution.

    An Emeritus Professor at a university says, “It can read many different file formats. It can very easily tidy up your data, deleting blank rows, and deleting rows where certain columns are missing. It allows you to make lots of changes internally, which you do using JavaScript to put in the conditional. It also has very good fundamental machine learning. It has decision trees, linear regression, and neural nets. It has a lot of text mining facilities as well. It's fairly fully-featured.”

    Benedikt S., CEO at SMH - Schwaiger Management Holding GmbH, explains, “All of the features related to the ETL are fantastic. That includes the connectors to other programs, databases, and the meta node function. Technical support has been extremely responsive so far. The solution has a very strong and supportive community that shares information and helps each other troubleshoot. The solution is very stable. The initial setup is pretty simple and straightforward.”

    Piotr Ś., Test Engineer at ProData Consult, says, “What I like the most is that it works almost out of the box with Random Forest and other Forest nodes.”
