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.

Gephi

Gephi is wonderfully suited for research and conducting follow-up social network analysis that GIS is too cumbersome for. It is less-well-suited for spatial statistical modeling, which is easier in programs like GeoDA, Stata, R, and GIS.

  • Gephi enables me to create beautiful, publication-ready graphical images.
  • I can write programs to be incorporated in Gephi.
  • The open-source platform provides versatility and the GUI allows easy use.

Cons

  • User Interface could be a little bit more clearer.
  • Error messaging can definitely be improved

  • At one point, there was an issue with files built in earlier builds not working in newer builds. I typically like to update products as soon as updates are available, but i wound up having to run separate version of Gephi if i wanted to check out what was new. Any models built in prior versions would then have to be recreated in newer versions if I wanted to leverage new features.
  • Documentation; you can never have enough of it. Since much of the product is being built by a variety of contributors, it's hard to document how all the features and plug-ins work. It would be great if the the Gephi team could find a body of resources to manage some sort of global product documentation. There are plenty of 3rd party videos and documents online, however, that do cover some of the specifics.

I understand better what Gephi is for and I might start using other solutions to actually operationalize the techniques I've developed in Gephi. However, I will probably always use Gephi to experiment with new graph-based data, to make beautiful graph visualizations, or to test new graph analysis techniques. Because of its speed and ease of use, I think of it now as my scratchpad for graph visualization.

Gephi is very intuitive and the fact that it shows its process helps the user understand what's going on. However, the animation features can really slow it down and there isn't a way to shut them off. Furthermore, the failures on saving mean you frequently have to start over. These problems disrupt the workflow and can be frustrating.

Alternatives Considered

Simple story. I tried both. Canopy felt somehow unintuitive to use.

Both are good. Gephi for Calculation and Cytoscape for visualization

For individuals with Gephi installed, this is pretty easy to do. However, in our organization not many colleagues have this installed, so the only way to produce reports is with a screenshot or exported image file. This loses much of the interactivity of the software and many of the key insights that can be uncovered by playing with the nodes and edges.

The upload process into Gephi is pretty streamlined. We upload csv files and the software is able to make the links easily and generate the graphs. The only way this could be better is if it connected directly to SAS, R, etc. or the databases themselves through SQL or a similar querying language (similar to Tableau)

Return on Investment

  • We save a lot of programming time, since all the add-ons are in the same environment.
  • Being multiplatform, Anaconda is perfect for work teams with many people, since it supports all operating systems.
  • The only negative thing that can happen is that at first, the way of working in Anaconda can be a bit confusing. Once passed the learning period, its daily use is very comfortable.

  • Faster access
  • No Idea about the Business as I am not using it in an organizational level
