Anaconda

Anaconda is the best solution when you need to make more basic algorithm training. However, when the client necessity if completely new or there're poor libraries, anaconda is too basic.When designing algorithms, I find ai-one to be very useful. Other tools that more suitable than Anaconda for more complex tasks are protege, biffblue and Nervana Neon

Factiva

It seems well suited for gathering and analyzing business news and business information. That said, it leaves room to be desired in terms of any social media functionality or capturing emerging news sources. I don't recall Factiva picking up more specialized blogs or relatively recent entrants in to the news media world.

Pros

  • Integration of the most popular and useful Python packages
  • Managing multiple execution environments
  • Management of package dependencies

  • Factiva has some quality news sources within its database. You know it's a robust, reliable and trustworthy source of content.
  • The Boolean logic search engine can seem a little daunting at first, but it is a very powerful tool to help you get the most out of running searches. The syntax and query structure generally follows the same as most 'keyword search' engines, but it has some quirks that you need to be aware of - operators in lower case, or running multi word / phrase searches outside of quote marks.
  • The filtering capability is simplistic but highly sophisticated. Filter content by source, region, language, company, industry and subject matter to really help hone results. The amount of back data readily available in the tool is impressive too meaning that running historical searches over large a timeframe is quick and easy.
  • Results shown include a highlighted section to indicate where keywords have matched - a nice addition to help you quickly identify the relevant bits of content you need.
  • You have the option to further tailor searches, and the ability to save individual searches for quick recall is a nice feature.
  • The tool is fast. It can handle complex searches and mine data going back years very very quickly. Most impressive

Cons

  • It's still a little buggy. Especially the launcher.
  • It's not always easy to set up. It's not exactly difficult: a Google search away for most things, but silly stuff like path names, installing custom fonts and colors. That kind of thing.

  • While the source list available is strong, there is limited if next to no social media in the tool. OK, it's Factiva, we know it doesn't do social media, but if it ran social media searches in the same way it handled news searches this would be a formidable tool for anyone to use.
  • Export functionality is good but a little restrictive. While the tool exports a multitude of formats (headlines only, headlines and full text etc) the number of records you can export in one hit is relatively small if your initial search returns 1,000s of items. This is a shame given how powerful the tool is in running queries and building a deck of results.

Alternatives Considered

SURA SREENIVASULU profile photo
Each of the tools I have described share the same kind of premise: the main thing they do is source and collect media content. Then to varying degrees they run filters against this content and produce a range of data visualisations and ways of slicing the data and content. Factiva's strength lies more in the sourcing of content than in the manipulation of the results (much like the others do with more sophisticated dashboards and visual interpretations). We chose it because of the integrity of its sourcing breadth. It doesn't matter so much about the display of results because the source material you're working with isn't as dynamic as say social media.

I often found it difficult to share out my reports with colleagues. However, I think that is more a function of the software's UX than a lack of inherent capability. It was there, just hard to use

As I previously noted, Factiva was quite good at gathering and merging data from a particular set of sources (mostly business related). However, there is an opportunity for the software to become better at gathering and analyzing more social information, as well as news from non-traditional news or media outlets.
