We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"With Anaconda Navigator, we have been able to use multiple IDEs such as JupyterLab, Jupyter Notebook, Spyder, Visual Studio Code, and RStudio in one place. The platform-agnostic package manager, "Conda", makes life easy when it comes to managing and installing packages.""It's interesting. It's user friendly. That's what makes it outstanding among the others. It has a collection of R, Python, and others. Their platform strategy has a collection of many other visualization tools, apart from Spyder and RStudio, which is really helpful for data science. For any data science professional, Anaconda is really handy. It has almost all the tools for data science.""The product is responsive, sleek and has a beautiful interface that is pleasant to use. It helps users to easily share code.""The documentation is excellent and the solution has a very large and active community that supports it."

Cons
"Anaconda should be optimized for RAM consumption.""When you install Anaconda for the first time, it's really difficult to update it.""It crashes once in a while. In case of a reboot or something unexpected, the unseen code part will get diminished, and it relatively takes longer than other applications when a reboot is happening. They can improve in these areas. They can also bring some database software. They have software for analytics and virtualization. However, they don't have any software for the database.""One thing that hurts the product is that the company is not doing more to advertise it as a solution and make it more well known."
