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 Analytics Platform is well suited as a training program for students from a variety of computation backgrounds. It integrates well many of the common chemical and biological programs and data files into one program that can then be used to process and sort large inventories.

Pros

  • Without the program being "my favorite" it is necessary to recognize that handling in the Excel application environment provides it with a feature with a high added value, compared to other softwares that do not have those characteristics, which makes the handling of data from external sources is easier.
  • In addition to its inherent quality of general data analysis, I can also highlight the areas in which I have used it (field of linear optimization, simplex method and non-linear optimization, network models) where it has allowed me to model, simulate and analyze different situations with great success.
  • I could say that the limitations are not the program but mine as a user of it.
  • Unlike other software that I have used (WinQsb and Lingo, for example), it presents an acceptable customer service.

  • Text processing is easily performed by the various extensions within this platform
  • Integrates multiple languages like Python, R , Java etc. all in one place
  • Also provides many options for text parsing like CoreNLP, OpenNLP

Cons

  • 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.

  • Documentation is poor
  • The developers are mostly not native English speakers therefore their verbiage is sometimes ambiguous in the given examples

Alternatives Considered

The use of this software does not necessarily follow that it is "globally better" than others. In the department we have used this and others with similar characteristics, given that, as previously indicated, all the software has advantages and weaknesses with respect to other software with similar characteristics. Obtaining better results lies in the user's ability to detect those "benefits and weaknesses" and maximize their usefulness within the specific field of work in which they operate.In our case, one of the reasons that led us to try and use it, was related to trying to "tie" more processes to the same environment, which in this case is the one associated with the Excel database, in such a way as to reduce the initial manipulation and accommodation that should be made to the data if they come from different sources such as MATLAB, or WinQsb.This facilitates the use of software for the type of user who does not necessarily have deep knowledge of linear algebra or operations research, for example.
On the contrary, the most analytical and knowledgeable user manifested in a high percentage, preferring to use MATLAB as a tool, claiming that they have a greater and easier access to the calculation functions, which even in specific cases, could be modified.

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

  • - 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.
