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.

Mathematica

Mathematica is well suited to solving symbolic calculus problems, including derivatives, integrals, simplifying expressions and collecting similar terms. This can help with a handwritten calculation and to verify that one has not made any mistakes.For numerical problems, I prefer to use MATLAB and for the simplest problems I prefer Wolfram Alpha.

Pros

Anaconda

  • Clear install story. There are a lot of ways to install python. There's only one way to install anaconda. This makes teaching and standardizing much easier.
  • Batteries included. It's easy to install things in python, but anaconda ships with most of what you need out of the box. This helps with standardization and reproducibility.
  • Good integrations with Jupyter and other visual tools. Jupyter is really convenient when learning various python packages. Anaconda makes these tools easy to launch and to use.

Mathematica

  • It allows straightforward integration of analytic analysis of algebraic expressions and their numerical implemented.
  • Supports varying programmatic paradigms, so one can choose what best fits the problem or task: pure functions, procedural programming, list processing, and even (with a bit of setup) object-oriented programming.
  • The extensive and rich tools for graphical rendering make it very easy to not just get 2D and 3D renderings of final output, but also to do quick-and-dirty 2D and 3D rendering of intermediate results and/or debugging results.

Cons

Anaconda

  • Although some other users mentioned the installation is "simple", we did encounter some challenge in a highly controlled environment (due to security reasons).
  • Jupyter Notebook is extremely slow when the client/server side of the network's speed/bandwidth is not balanced.
  • Bootstrapping Anaconda takes too long, sometimes I even started doubting it would respond any more.
  • If there are extra python packages you need but are not by default installed by Anaconda, then some efforts will be required to figure out how to put them in the right place.

  • Depending on the size of the application, the cost of licenses can be prohibitive in some cases, especially for Wolfram Private Cloud.

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.

It's really good at installing and getting started. It's less usable and configurable after that. If you stay in the ecosystem, and don't know how to Python any other way - it works really well.

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

Mathematica

We selected Wolfram Mathematica as it offers lot of functionality that other products like MATLAB or sageMath do not have. And it also has advantages on the feature that it does share in common with other tools like sageMath, MATLAB etc. It is more powerful than MATLAB. It provides good analysis and quick charts of results.

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.

Mathematica

  • This tool helps to visualise the mathematical problem in a very easy way. It can show you the step by step solution to integral problems.
  • But when you are using the tool it may limit your understanding of the basic problem. And you may miss out on understanding the basic of mathematics itself.
  • It helped me a lot to do my thing in a very easy way. And understanding the data is also easy in this as you can easily visualize it.
