Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's very easy to use once you learn it.""The technical support is okay.""All of the data analytics features in SAS Analytics are valuable to us since we're using them daily across our entire analytics team."

More SAS Analytics Pros →

"Weka is a very nice tool, it needs very small requirements. If I want to implement something in Python, I need a lot of memory and space but Weka is very lightweight. Anyone can implement any kind of algorithm, and we can show the results immediately to the client using the one-page feature. The client always wants to know the story. They want the result.""It doesn’t cost anything to use the product.""Weka's best features are its user-friendly graphic interface interpretation of data sets and the ease of analyzing data."

More Weka Pros →

Cons
"The graphing and visualization features could be enhanced, in my opinion. I would especially stress improving the visualization capabilities.""The installation could also be easier, and the price could be better.""One of the things that can be simplified is self-service analytics, especially for a citizen developer or a citizen data scientist."

More SAS Analytics Cons →

"If you have one missing value in your dataset and this missing value belongs to a specific attribute and the attribute is a numeric attribute and there is only one missing data, whenever you import this data, the problem is that Weka cannot understand that this is a numeric field. It converts everything into a string, and there is no way to convert the string into numerical math. It's really very complicated.""A few people said it became slow after a while.""Weka is a little complicated and not necessarily suited for users who aren't skilled and experienced in data science."

More Weka Cons →

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I think that the cost-benefit ratio is okay."
  • "SAS is very expensive."
  • "Our licensing covers the usage for around 50 data analysts."

    Top Answer:It's very easy to use once you learn it.
    Top Answer:SAS is very expensive. The challenge with them is that you have to pay for a license with every module you buy. They should probably combine everything and make it cheaper and light weight in Base… more »

    Top Answer:I like how the classification and prediction work. We should use Weka because the path is very big and much better. If there are a lot more lines of code, then we should use another language.
    Top Answer:The product is good, but I would like it to work with big data. I know it has a Spark integration they could use to do analysis in clusters, but it's not so clear how to use it. In this case, it would… more »
