Likelihood to Recommend

Analytic Solver

Based on my limited experience and use, and therefore limited global knowledge of the software, I would recommend it especially if the data that will be used as inputs to the model has previously worked on a spreadsheet such as Excel.I would also recommend it to analyze problems of medium and small size. Given the experience I have had when I have used it with large problems, there have been noticeable decreases in the speed of response (which are not associated with the size of the system of equations involved in the calculation). Excellent for processing linear programming models.

KNIME Analytics Platform

KNIME is quite useful for initial data exploration and to share and discuss your process (workflow) with someone that does not how KNIME works. KNIME's visualisation tools can not be compared to most BI tools, because of the limited amount of available charts.

Pros

Analytic Solver

  • Easy to use and learn.
  • Strong optimization platform for business and supply chain problems which can be modeled in Excel
  • It can handle multiple objectives and more than 8000 decision variables in a problem.
  • Lots of tutorial and examples are available to solve the problem

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • For non-programming based functional users, it's a blessing as it doesn't require coding, programming skills to perform data mining. The full desktop version of KNIME is free and open source, with no limit to data.
  • Connect to Open source: It also offers excellent integration with a wide range of other open source software such as Python, R, Spark, and even ImageJ for image analysis.
  • Great Integration of functionalities: We never move data between applications/platforms to complete the project. Raw data is easily ingested in the tool, processed, can be performed statistics, summarised and exported to various formats.

Cons

Analytic Solver

  • On the few occasions when I have used it to deal with problems of optimization of relatively large parameters (with a large number of restrictions and decision variables), the program has been slower, not substantially but slower, than programs such as the WinQsb, even when the latter runs on 32-bit machines and not 64. That has caught my attention, even though it is not a real problem for the uses I give to the program.
  • Given my partial function as a university professor, it has been much more effective and practical to use other software, due to the limited options that the educational license associated with the software has.

  • Automation - e.g. RapidMiner Studio provides a Turbo Prep function, where one can get to working on models more quickly (RapidMiner is not open source though)
  • KNIME does not replace a regular reporting tool - it is not meant to. However, if I have already spent some time developing a data acquisition and analytical model, it would be nice to be able to deploy, for example, a monitoring or reporting module that would process data autonomously and react accordingly.

Alternatives Considered

Analytic Solver

We believe in building the models in Excel. A limitation with Excel is that Excel Solver can not take more than 200 decision variables with multiple constraints. It is cheap in terms of license and maintenance fees against other softwares which are available in the market.

Knime is much more user simple than any high-level programming language. The ability to connect nodes ad produces outputs in minutes is a large benefit for this program

Return on Investment

Analytic Solver

  • - It has allowed finding ways to optimize (minimizing costs or times) the field processes involved in various projects.
  • It has even allowed, in specific cases where it was used for that purpose, to optimize the allocation of resources (people) to work in different jobs that present weekly variations of the activity that these people must perform.
  • It has allowed the sensitivity analysis of projects to changes in the decision variables related to them, which, and in very dynamic and changing environments, resulted in substantial decreases in money losses.

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • It is suited for data mining or machine learning work but If we're looking for advanced stat methods such as mixed effects linear/logistics models, that needs to be run through an R node.
  • Thinking of our peers with an advanced visualization techniques requirement, it is a lagging product.
