Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Cloud-based process run helps in not keeping the systems on while processes are running.""Data Science Studio's data science model is very useful.""If many teams are collaborating and sharing Jupyter notebooks, it's very useful.""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.""The most valuable feature is the set of visual data preparation tools.""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 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."

"The most valuable feature is data normalization.""Scalability, in terms of running experiments concurrently is good. At max, I was able to run three different experiments concurrently.""The product is well organized. The thing is how we will get the models to work within our code. We have some suggestions there, but we want to gain more experience and be ready to answer that because we are currently working on this and don't have all the answers yet. The tool is well organized. What I am very happy about is the ease of deploying new resources. You can easily create your pipeline within minutes.""The most valuable feature is the knowledge bank, which allows us to ask questions and the AI will automatically pull the pre-prescribed responses.""The most valuable feature of Azure Machine Learning Studio for me is its convenience. I can quickly start using it without setting up the environment or buying a lot of devices.""It helps in building customized models, which are easy for clients to use​.​​""One of the notable advantages is that it offers both a visual designer, which is user-friendly, and an advanced coding option.""The interface is very intuitive."

More Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio Pros →

"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.""Server up-time needs to be improved. Also, query engines like Spark and Hive need to be more stable.""I think it would help if Data Science Studio added some more features and improved the data model.""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.""The ability to have charts right from the explorer would be an improvement.""Dataiku still needs some coding, and that could be a difference where business data scientists would go for DataRobot more than Dataiku.""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."

More Dataiku Cons →

"The solution's initial setup process is complicated.""The price could be improved.""The initial setup time of the containers to run the experiment is a bit long.""In terms of data capabilities, if we compare it to Google Cloud's BigQuery, we find a difference. When fetching data from web traffic, Google can do a lot of processing with small queries or functions.""In the future, I would like to see more AI consultation like image and video classification, and improvement in the presentation of data.""As for the areas for improvement in Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio, I've provided feedback to Microsoft. My company is a Gold Partner of Microsoft, so I provided my feedback in another forum. Right now, it is the number of algorithms available in the designer that has to be improved, though I'm sure Microsoft does it regularly. When you take a use case approach, Microsoft has done that in a lot of places, but not on the Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio designer. When I say use case basis, I meant recommending a product or recommending similar products, so if Microsoft can list out use cases and give me a template, it will save me a lot of time and a lot of work because I don't have to scratch my head on which algorithm is better, and I can go with what's recommended by Microsoft. I'm sure that isn't a big task for the Microsoft team who must have seen thousands of use cases already, so out of that experience if the team can come up with a standard template, I'm sure it'll help a lot of organizations cut down on the development time, as well as going with the best industry-standard algorithms rather than experimenting with mine. What I'd like to see in the next version of Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio, apart from the use case template, is the improvement of the availability of libraries. Microsoft should also upgrade the Python versions because the old version of Python is still supported and it takes time for Microsoft to upgrade the support for Python. The pace of upgrading Python versions of Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio and making those libraries available should be sped up or increased.""Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio worked okay for me, so right now, I don't have any room for improvement in mind for it. What I'd like added to Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio in its next version is a categorization for use cases or a template that makes the use cases simple to map out, for example, for healthcare, medical, or finance use cases, etc. This would be very helpful for users of Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio, especially for beginners.""Integration with social media would be a valuable enhancement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The annual licensing fees are approximately €20 ($22 USD) per key for the basic version and €40 ($44 USD) per key for the version with everything."
  • "Pricing is pretty steep. Dataiku is also not that cheap."
  • More Dataiku Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "To use MLS is fairly cheap. Even the paid account is something like $20/month, unless you are provisioning large numbers of VMs for a Hadoop cluster. The main MS makes money with this solution is forcing the user to deploy their model on REST API, and being charged each time the API is accessed. There are several pricing tiers for the API. If you do not use the API, then value of MLS is to create rapid experiments ($20/month). The resulting model is not exportable to use, thus you’ll have to recreate the algorithms in either R or Python, which is what I did. MLS results gave me a direction to work with, the actual work is mostly done in R and Python outside of MLS."
  • "When we got our first models and were ready for the user acceptance testing, our licensing fees were between €2,500 ($2,750 USD) and €3,000 ($3,300 USD) monthly."
  • "From a developer's perspective, I find the price of this solution high."
  • "The licensing cost is very cheap. It's less than $50 a month."
  • "There is a license required for this solution."
  • "I am paying for it following a pay-as-you-go. So, the more I use it, the more it costs."
  • "In terms of pricing, for any cloud solution, you should know the tricks of the trade and how to use it, otherwise, you'll end up paying a lot of money irrespective of the cloud provider, so at least for Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio pricing versus AWS, I would rate it three out of five, with one being the most expensive, and five being the cheapest. It could be cheaper, but you also have to be careful when choosing the plans, for example, consider the architecture and a lot of other factors before choosing your plan, if you don't want to end up paying more. If your cloud provider has an optimizer that seems to be available in every provider, that would keep alerting you in terms of resources not being used as much, then that would help you with budgeting."
  • "My team didn't deal with the licensing for Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio, so I'm unable to comment on pricing, but the money that was spent on the tool was worth it."
