Anaconda

Anaconda is very suitable for a research team/lab/department which has many data scientists who want to apply some Python-based analytic programming and want to cooperate in sharing the results easily. It is not very well suited for final production environment deployment.

Power BI For Office 365

Power BI Desktop does not make for good presentations. It would be good if there was a presentation mode.

Pros

  • The most useful thing is the Jupyter notebook that Anaconda has inside the platform. You can use your browser to manage them and launch everything from your file system.
  • Anaconda exists for Python 2 and Python 3. So, you can use it despite which Python you use.
  • It's very easy to install, and it's multiplatform (Windows, OS X, Linux).
  • Friendly manage of Python packages.

Cons

  • Sometimes it takes too much time to initialize
  • Some of the packages are not already charged so you need to upload them by hand.

Power BI For Office 3659.2
Based on 4 answers
I will continue to recommend this suite to folks looking for a reporting and analytics solution, as I find in MOST cases, it's great at meeting almost every requirement I've been given by a multitude of clients across a range of industries. I've built Capacity Planning solutions that allowed end user input which was then submitted to SharePoint, Executive Dashboards, custom applications, simple analytical tools for teams to easily slice and dice data, and super simple reports as well as some very complicated ones. If you haven't seen the demos online, do a search, and see for yourself - this is a great BI suite! (I do not work for Microsoft, although I do consult out there from time to time. I do occasionally make a recommendation for a different BI reporting tool, but in general, find Excel can accomplish quite a bit for less money and in less time.)

Alternatives Considered

Anaconda is the best Python environment because you have all the things you need all in one places, at the reach of your hand. You can download and manage libraries as you wish and is very easy to create new projects and API's for all your stuff.It's Multiplatform so you don't have to take care to use your stuff in another computer. I think it is the best characteristic.

Oracle was nice, super expensive to implement if it's not in use already. JobDiva is choppy and heavy on the system while does not give great reports. Salesforce is good; remote access is good however their support is terrible
