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.

If you are a small company with insufficient funding, it would be better to go with open source resources because they are free and do the same job. If you are a bigger company with enough resources, then IBM Watson Studio could be better in terms of security and accessibility.

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

IBM Watson Studio

  • Integration of IBM Watson APIs such as speech to text, image recognition, personality insights, etc.
  • SPSS modeler and neural network model provide no-code environments for data scientists to build pipelines quickly.
  • Enforced best-practices set up POCs for deployment in production with a minimum of re-work.
  • Estimator validation lets data scientists test and prove different models.

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.
Ryan McGarry | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Watson Studio

  • The cost is steep and so only companies with resources can afford it
  • It will be nice to have Chinese versions so that Chinese engineers can also use it easily
  • It takes a while to learn how to input different kinds of skin defects for detection

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.

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

IBM Watson Studio

The main reason I personally changed over from Azure ML Studio is because it lacked any support for significant custom modelling with packages and services such as TensorFlow, scikit-learn, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit and Spark ML. IBM Watson Studio provides these services and does so in a well integrated and easy to use fashion making it a preferable service over the other services that I have personally used.

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.

  • Could instantly show data driven insights to drive 20% incremental revenue over existing results
  • Still don't have a real use case for unstructured data like twitter feed
  • Some of the insights around user actions have driven new projects to automate mundane tasks
