Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the solution is easy to use, training new users is not difficult, and our usage is comprehensive because the whole service is beneficial.""The solution is very comprehensive, especially compared to Minitabs, which is considered more for manufacturing. However, whatever data you want to analyze can be handled with SPSS.""The most valuable features are the small learning curve and its ability to hold a lot of data.""SPSS is quite robust and quicker in terms of providing you the output.""The SPSS interface is very accessible and user-friendly. It's really easy to get information in it. I've shared it with experts and beginners, and everyone can navigate it.""In terms of the features I've found most valuable, I'd say the duration, the correlation, and of course the nonparametric statistics. I use it for reliability and survival analysis, time series, regression models in different solutions, and different types of solutions.""The features that I have found most valuable are the Bayesian statistics and descriptive statistics.""The solution has numerous valuable features. We particularly like custom tabs. It's very useful. We end up analyzing a lot of software data, so features related to custom tabs are really helpful."

"From a user-friendliness perspective, it's a great tool.""It can handle an unlimited amount of data, which is the advantage of using Knime.""KNIME is quite scalable, which is one of the most important features that we found.""This solution is easy to use and especially good at data preparation and wrapping.""What I like the most is that it works almost out of the box with Random Forest and other Forest nodes.""It's a coding-less opportunity to use AI. This is the major value for me.""The solution is good for teaching, since there is no need to code.""I was able to apply basic algorithms through just dragging and dropping."

More KNIME Pros →

"The solution needs more planning tools and capabilities.""The technical support should be improved.""It would be helpful if there was better documentation on how to properly use the solution. A beginner's guide on how to use the various programming functions within the product would be so useful to a lot of people. I found that everything was very confusing at first. Having clear documentation would help alleviate that.""One of the areas that should be similar to Minitabs is the use of blogs. The Minitabs blog helps users understand the tools and gives lots of practical examples. Following the SPSS manual is cumbersome. It's a good, exhaustive manual, but it's not practical to use. With Minitabs, you can go to the blogs and find specific articles written about various components and it's very helpful. Without blogs, we find SPSS more complicated.""If there is any self-generation data collection plan (DCP), it would be helpful in gathering data. It would also be useful if there is a function to scale it up to, let's say, UiPath and have it consolidate and integrate into a UiPath solution.""Most of the package will give you the fixed value, or the p-value, without an explanation as to whether it it significant or not. Some beginners might need not just the results, but also some explanation for them.""The solution could improve by providing a visual network for predictions and a self-organizing map for clustering.""I'd like to see them use more artificial intelligence. It should be smart enough to do predictions and everything based on what you input."

"I would like to see better web scraping because every time I tried, it was not up to par, although you can use Python script.""Both RapidMiner and KNIME should be made easier to use in the field of deep learning.""It could input more data acquisitions from other sources and it is difficult to combine with Python.""There are a lot of tools in the product and it would help if they were grouped into classes where you can select a function, rather than a specific tool.""The predefined workflows could use a bit of improvement.""There should be better documentation and the steps should be easier.""Compared to the other data tools on the market, the user interface can be improved.""If they had a more structured training model it would be very helpful."
