(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5

This is a highly dependable software that also has some great features. Some of these features include

  • Easy access to data.
  • Presents data in the required format, after using various metrics.
  • Creates good dashboards.
The only drawbacks I could find were that the time taken to set up is high and it could do with a better user interface

“Navigate through Journey of Hypotheses"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
Granted, companies are looking for vertical solutions aiming directly at their specific applications while RapidMiner, albeit powerful, is a platform. In addition to current communication by RapidMiner and the enthusiastic community, efforts must be spent by both sides, the customers and the solution providers like us, to practice, solve problems, and build up confidence so that gaps can be bridged.

“Decision making made easier with this data analysis program."

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5

The software’s ability to organize and use variable for tool application is what works best for me.  Evaluation of the behavior of dependent and independent variables for linear regression analysis makes it easy to compile reports, further enabling easier decision making. It is also extremely user-friendly, with each icon distinctly visible. If I had to pick an area of improvement, I would say it is the quality of its graphics. They do not seem very professional and perhaps they can be updated to seem so.

I believe that this is an ideal software for organizations lookimg to systemize its data and work using dependent as well as independent variables. It works excellently to present inferential statistics to help organizations grow. However, if you’re looking for exceptional graphics, then this might not be the one for you.

“A great way to professionally build and manage databases"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
One of the most revolutionary software, especially in my field, where I need to use multiple statistical variables to analyze databases of chemical elements. It is flexible as well, so I can convert databases of other software into the IBM SPSS format and they work better! For me, the best feature is its ability to filter and modify variables as per what I need. It is extremely versatile and perfect for my daily work requirements. Since it is quite a complicated software, it can get a bit tedious to understand all its functionalities, which may require a certain level of computer science knowledge. I had to take up an intensive course to understand it completely. This is possibly the best software for management and analysis of databases. It is extremely effective in creating variables and I dare say any company that uses it is bound to see a noticeable enhancement in employee performance.

“Data Science Capabilities Without The Investment In Data Scientists"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
SAP is the only vendor that I work with that is truly partnering with me year-round. We discuss use cases and how to best leverage the SAP product to address these use cases. The ease of use. Little data preparation is required. My team are subject-matter experts in sales data. The ability to quickly (same day) turn around a model and assess the viability of the model is unmatched by any other tools and has positioned my team of non-data-scientists as data science thought leaders! The visualizations haven''''t kept up with the industry. While the output is very understandable, we still download the output to excel or Tableau. Our understanding is that SAP Analytics Cloud will be the platform we will need to eventually migrate to, and it''''s visualization capabilities are excellent. My team was not involved directly with the purchase. Sales operations volunteered to participate in the evaluation and we gave IT a solid I like it for the following: • Drive innovation • Enhance decision making • Drive revenue growth • Create internal/operational efficiencies I like it since it provides direct access to specialists and engineers. At SAP''''s Sapphire customer show, we have always been able to meet with the product development leadership and provide input into product direction as well as understand the roadmap.

“Good Product with Some Bad Tooling Options"

(*)(*)(*)( )( )3
Competent enough software, but not easy to use. I also came across some issues in AI tooling. Though Microsoft seems to be putting in enough work in the platform, I feel that it is overlooking basic deployment and infrastructure issues. I would, however, buy this product for the following features: • Better customer data analysis for relation building • Faster Decision Making • Innovation

“Great Product"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5

The product team met with us at the time of installation which helped the entire process move smoothly. Even after installation the team continued to provide exceptional service. Product met all expectations with only minor issues. Which is a good thing considering they have horrible documentation. It’s all over the place and can do with a major overhaul. The stellar support not only makes up for the lack of documentation, but also makes this a product to recommend.
