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.

Datawatch Monarch

The product is especially useful when you have real-time and/or time series data to analyze. If you have more mundane, simpler requirements, other products might do the job you need for less money (there are even some decent open source visualization tools you can find.) I know the product is very widely used in capital markets applications to monitor and analyze risk and price and volume changes; if you're working in that area, I don't think there's a better tool to use.

Pros

Anaconda

  • First of all it is very easy to install and it is user friendly. You just download a Anaconda from its official site and you can start using it for coding (I usually code using Jupiter Notebook) Compared to Pycharm it is easier navigate in Anaconda(Jupiter Notebook)
  • For me it is a best environment to use if I have small projects. Jupiter Notebook is running tasks much faster compared to Pycharm and other IDE's.
  • In my work I usually need different scientific packages that are not commonly used. As Anaconda have thousands of libraries it helps me making my job easier

  • Creating a basic model to extract data from a report is very easy.
  • Advanced features like Calculated Fields and External Lookups allow you to augment the raw data.
  • You can create a "project" to automate the data extraction. Combined with Datapump (a separate DW app), you can fully automate the process once the raw report is generated.

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.

  • Recently, we had some major sticker-shock when we wanted to upgrade Data Pump. It is an exceptional product, but when the price jumped from $6,000 to over $60,000, it was impossible to get the funds approved internally for the upgrade.
  • We also paid for yearly maintenance contracts which included Professional Services, but rarely found those services beneficial. However, we did receive all software upgrades for Datapump as part of the contract which we found to be very beneficial. However, with the new pricing, that is not longer the case.

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.

Even though we do not utilize it on a daily basis, I do hope my current company renews it's license. If not, I intend to purchase myself.

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.

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

Datawatch is very good value of money compared to QlikView; QlikView is really more of a BI tool and has a lot of functions that I didn't need. Datawatch is very strong in the real-time area where Tableau, Panorama, and Qlik don't do very well. If you need to set up a visual monitoring dashboard, Datawatch is the best product I've seen for that. if you want to do a lot of in depth statistical analysis of large databases, Tableau is probably a good option.

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.
