Anaconda

Anaconda is great for academic and private organizations that cannot afford more expensive Python/R package managers. Also, it is more appropriate for intermediate to advanced Python users--Anaconda can be somewhat frustrating for beginners, as it takes some practice to get comfortable with the workflow. I find it particularly useful for working in teams, because if everyone uses the same package manager, it is easier to troubleshoot issues and makes for reproducible research. For wealthier organizations, a premium package management system (with tech support) would be ideal. Anaconda is also great for people working independently on code development.

BrightGauge

Any data-driven business that requires metrics and performance benchmarks, that need to drill into data for analysis, should use Bright Gauge. If you don't require data that can be displayed in a meaningful way, and that's not important to your business, then this product is probably not for you; otherwise, it's great.

Pros

Anaconda

  • Clear install story. There are a lot of ways to install python. There's only one way to install anaconda. This makes teaching and standardizing much easier.
  • Batteries included. It's easy to install things in python, but anaconda ships with most of what you need out of the box. This helps with standardization and reproducibility.
  • Good integrations with Jupyter and other visual tools. Jupyter is really convenient when learning various python packages. Anaconda makes these tools easy to launch and to use.

BrightGauge

  • Near real-time data in dashboards is a game changer for decision making
  • Easy of setup of gauges, dashboards and reports makes the product versatile
  • Automated scheduled reporting increases visibility and reduces workload.

Cons

Anaconda

  • Anaconda could greatly benefit by integrating with Git and other versioning software.
  • The software's default installation is relatively bloated, slower on older machines, and could be improved by allowing for a lean default installation environment.
  • Anaconda has an issue with supporting the current version of Computer-Vision, a commonly used machine learning package.

BrightGauge

  • Support quality has decreased since BrightGauge was acquired by Continuum then ConnectWise.
  • It would be helpful to be able to change multiple similar gauges at one time, as opposed to individually.
  • Reporting system could be improved. At the moment, I am not comfortable scheduling reports to be sent to customers.

It's really good at data processing, but needs to grow more in publishing in a way that a non-programmer can interact with. It also introduces confusion for programmers that are familiar with normal Python processes which are slightly different in Anaconda such as virtualenvs.

The interface is an easy to use command-line interface, or a GUI for launching and/or discovering different parts of the system.

There is a lot of sources to get support for Anaconda based on the large data scientist or data engineer user community. Whenever you need something, you can type it in Google search, and you can find out people who had a similar problem and the solution for it.

Alternatives Considered

Anaconda

ANACONDA VS Alteryx Analytics: Even though I find Alteryx to be an excellent tool for managing extremely massive data, Anaconda is much better and easy for analytics.Anaconda VS. MicroStrategy Analytics: Compared with Anaconda, MicroStrategy Analytics is very difficult to use and counter-intuitiveAnaconda VS. Power BI For Office 365: One of the main advantages of BI for Office 364 is its capacity to data connectivity. However, it's very hard to edit data connections, once BI for Office is deployed in other platforms

We looked very briefly at Solar Winds, but due to Connectwise the reporting was not very accurate and was conflicted.

Return on Investment

Anaconda

  • We can get any new employee set-up on Python for Machine learning in minutes, without any assistance from IT. That's real $ savings.
  • We started to experiment with Machine Learning a lot more, which leads to creating new projects which can have a tremendous impact on the business.

  • ROI can be difficult to measure specifically on a tool like this, but quicker, easier access to information is key.
  • Decrease workload and time in creation of reports has definitely created an ROI.
