Anaconda

Anaconda shines if you need to set up a data analysis or data science lab in no time. Newcomers to Python or Jupiter can be up and running in minutes and playing with the most popular packages. I think the Anaconda Cloud package could benefit from some UX improvements to clarify the migration process. Integration with external data sources could be improved as well.

Power BI For Office 365

If you want to get closer to the world of BI and work in a Microsoft environment you can definitely evaluate the tools of Power BI and see if they are right for you. I recommend you buy the PRO version otherwise you can not use the most useful features of BI. The cost is moreover certainly less than many other competitors.

Pros

  • Anaconda (i.e. Python with lots of packages and the fabulous iPython/Jupyter Notebook) does analytics well. In analytics, or "data science" or whatever buzzword, you have to pick your poison: Python, R, or SAS. Python is the only one that's good at doing other things as well.
  • Like the visualization...The quality of the built-in types of scientific visualization in Python vs. R and their aesthetics is up for grabs. However, Python can do a whole lot of different kinds of visualization above and beyond R. Similarly, JavaScript probably can do more/better visualization than Python, but it's not meant for analytics. Anaconda has enough visualization packages to get you started.

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.

  • Like many Microsoft products, you can get by with a small understanding of the product, but to truly realize the entire potential does take a while to learn.
  • Hooking up SQL databases to the cloud version is a more complex than just querying right into the database from the desktop version.

If I were a small business owner, I would likely use Power BI for Office 365 for the sheer fact that I would get the Office licensing I need, along with powerful capabilities. As a Microsoft Partner, we continue to see Microsoft invest heavily in the Power BI capabilities, and will continue to implement and support BI solutions around this product, as we believe this is in the best interest of our clients.

At the maximum, we have had 10 users, of which 3 were data analysts. The others were consumers of the data.

Alternatives Considered

Other systems might be easier to set-up but Anaconda is a fairly flexible analytics toolkit. It can be configured in a way that truly matches the way in which your business or analytics department works. Built on top of lots of open source projects so things aren't siloed and you can avoid vendor lock-in.

Tableau Desktop is a more mature product with more features but the price is what has stopped me going down this path.

With mobile integration and web access it's extremely convenient for mobile users and remote offices to utilize the tools. Again it is a cloud based product so the huge leverage here is being able to access it anywhere on any device. So sharing data to keep everyone knowledgeable is great. My clients haven't complained and are continuing to learn about the first roll out as they continue to learn the software.

Once the information is in the database updating is pretty smooth. I haven't heard of many complaints. Pulling for external sources appears to be working well with no serious issue. Again information is only as good as the source itself. I may get the occasional squeaky wheel on the data updates and accuracy. However overall the information is solid.

Return on Investment

  • Extremely quick turnaround time to set up data science experiments
  • Reduction of troubleshooting time when deploying new packages and dependencies
  • Low risk environment due to the community edition

  • It's allowed us to better visualize large amounts of data.
  • It's an easy way to tie into an existing SQL database for users that don't know SQL.
