Amazon SageMaker

Amazon SageMaker is a great tool for developing machine learning models that take more effort than just point-and-click type of analyses. The software works well with the other tools in the Amazon ecosystem, so if you use Amazon Web Services or are thinking about it, SageMaker would be a great addition. SageMaker is great for consumer insights, predictive analytics, and looking for gems of insight in the massive amounts of data we create. SageMaker is less suitable for analysts who do generally "small" data analyses, and "small" data analyses in today's world can be billions of records.

Tableau Desktop

We use Tableau when we want to obtain a fast and efficient result, since this option allows to work with data in real time or in memory, being able to extract massive data for a limited exploration quickly, using technology of database and computational graphics to analyze enormous sets of data and which is used in the different areas of the organization when we want to have quick results and easy to analyze according to the graphics presented.

  • Customization and easy to alter and change.

Cons

  • I think that although the algorithms are there and you are using one click, there could be more detailed descriptions located in places so that other users are able to easily find the right formula and tools.
  • Mobile friendly options would be a huge plus, even tracking what employees are using this tool for in regards to reporting.

  • The ETL part is missing in Tableau.
  • For huge and ambiguous data-sets, Tableau Desktop is not good.
  • Before analysis data preparation is mandatory.

Because right now its the best option out there (disclosure: I haven't used Qlikview or some of the other direct competitors of Tableau). The big investment is in Tableau Server not desktop. For the cost of the license of Tableau desktop, its a pretty good deal. You can hook it up to pretty much any data source easily. You can easily share the visualizations with your team/colleagues easily. Tableau Desktop is generally easy to use for business users. But the more advanced stuff is better suited for a analyst or someone with a IT/CS background.

Entry-level data analysis is accessible even to beginners, some advanced analysis is possible, but it is not at this time an end-to-end solution for analytics, though imprvements are coming from version 10.2.

The performance of tableau heavily depends on size of data and sheet objects and visualizations used. So yes the performance of tableau degrades based on its complexity.

There is a Server installation training video on Tableau's website. I highly recommend that everyone watch it. It only takes a few minutes and could save you quite a bit of time.

Alternatives Considered

We have not invested in another machine learning software at this time and so far this has proved very successful with our machine learning teams. As mentioned, I am training these individuals simply on the fundamentals of the software and using it/customizing it for their needs. It has been very easy to do this and has gotten great reviews across the organization so far.

the option is that Tableau Public has the features of Tableau Desktop available for free, at least for a trial period.

Although tableau is highly interactive and fast but with very large dataset its performance degrades heavily. So up to certain extent its really good but after that we have to take care of its performance issues.

Return on Investment

  • Use of this tool across areas of our organization has allowed for more time to be spent on other things as this is taking a lot of the heavy lifting and developing out of the machine learning process all together.
  • Database of algorithms ready to use and adjust, customizing is key with this group of employees and their daily work while using this software.

  • Tableau has provided my clients with the information necessary to allocate multi-million dollar research budgets effectively, ensuring the company is getting the most bang for its buck.
  • Tableau has given my office the ability to present data quickly and easily in a professional format that customers can understand, and has them returning frequently for additional analysis and projects.
