I'm not a consultant or a reseller. I've only dealt with this solution in the past as a user, for the most part. When done right, this automation can be very helpful. There are companies that were pioneers in this space. For example, Autonomy, which was purchased by Hewlett Packard. However, in that case, it was an epic failure. They've been in a lawsuit for the last decade. I've been more focused on other parts of healthcare information. So honestly I'd say in the last probably two, two and a half years, I haven't really dug into the analytic capability. I would advise other organizations to proceed with caution and do a lot of homework and maybe pilot the solution before diving in. Overall, I would rate the solution at a seven out of ten.

I'm not sure which version of the solution we're using right now. I'd recommend the solution to other users. It's more flexible than, say, Dataiku, even though their service can be a little bad sometimes. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. It can handle most of the work we need it to do.

The solution needs to improve on its consumerization. They need to expand on it. Right now, they don't make it very easy. Scaling is limited in some use cases. They need to make it easier to expand in all aspects. Their service is a little bad sometimes.

I haven't dealt with the solution as significantly in the last probably two or three years. That said, my last deeper dive into that was around the need for the product within the organization. I'm sure it's gotten better and better as the program has gotten better, however, early on, they relied heavily on building out these massive reference tables. That was a ton of the work that had to be done Honestly, I haven't seen any comparative report that has run the same data through two different artificial intelligence or machine learning capabilities to get something out of it. I would love to see that. The top three industries should go head to head to feed the same data and then get evaluated for accuracy. Something like that would be tremendously interesting. I don't know if something like that exists.

The most valuable aspect of the solution's the cost and human labor savings.
