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.

AutoTag is a brilliant solution for less complex reports where native Microsoft Office output is required. This is where AutoTag really shines. It's also appropriate in situations where our customers want to develop and maintain their own reports but don't necessarily want to commit an experienced data person or report developer to do the work. For complex report requirements that need JavaScript or considerable data manipulation inside the report templates, we will continue to look at other tools in our kit.

Pros

  • Everything is in one place, so it's very convinient
  • It's easy to switch between multiple functionalities
  • Performance and Speed - Python and R run smoothly and efficiently.

  • Native Office output -- not nested tables and/or horrible RTF like other tools generate.
  • Ease of use -- once the data sources are set up, creating tables is as simple as drag and drop (okay, maybe not exactly that simple, but you can certainly create a table of data using drag and drop, then format it and manipulate it as needed).
  • Responsive developers and support -- when I've had questions, they've been addressed VERY quickly and professionally.

Cons

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

  • Limited in terms of customizability -- this is a double-edged sword. Other report tools we use support anything from limited to incredibly complex JavaScript, for example, and we often use a combination of JavaScript and complex queries to pass and manipulate data. AutoTag can do some of this, but it wouldn't be our go-to solution for complex reporting.
  • Limited drag and drop -- while you can easily create tables with drag and drop, you can't drag and drop individual fields, which really isn't intuitive

I think the usability of Windward is great. I did not rate a 10 as I think there is always room for improvement.

Alternatives Considered

Anaconda is way easier to set-up. On Anaconda we have users working on Machine Learning in minutes, where on PyCharm is takes a lot longer to set-up and often involves getting help from IT. PyCharm is easier to integrate with Code repositories (such as GitHub), so if that's very important to you, you might want to take a look at PyCharm

Most reporting solutions do not allow for an easy mix of static and dynamic content. Windward is a great reporting solution for this.

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.

  • Allow cost savings to allow business users to update reports without involving a developer.
  • Ease of maintenance for developers to help minimize their time writing reports.
  • Cost effective solution for our organization on a reporting engine.
