Azure Machine Learning Studio

For [a] data scientist require[d] to build a machine learning model, so he/she didn't worry about infrastructure to maintain it.
All kind of feature[s] such as train, build, deploy and monitor the machine learning model available in a single suite.
If someone has [their] own environment for ML studio, so there [it would] not [be] useful for them.

Azure Synapse Analytics (Azure SQL Data Warehouse)

It is very well suited for big data analytics. Predictive modeling, optimization, and other large scale analysis benefit from using a properly defined SQL Data Warehouse. It is also suited for simple business intelligence such as building historical and active dashboards

Pros

Azure Machine Learning Studio

  • User friendliness: This is by far the most user friendly tool I've seen in analytics. You don't need to know how to code at all! Just create a few blocks, connect a few lines and you are capable of running a boosted decision tree with a very high R squared!
  • Speed: Azure ML is a cloud based tool, so processing is not made with your computer, making the reliability and speed top notch!
  • Cost: If you don't know how to code, this is by far the cheapest machine learning tool out there. I believe it costs less than $15/month. If you know how to code, then R is free.
  • Connectivity: It is super easy to embed R or Python codes on Azure ML. So if you want to do more advanced stuff, or use a model that is not yet available on Azure ML, you can simply paste the code on R or Python there!
  • Microsoft environment: Many many companies rely on the Microsoft suite. And Azure ML connects perfectly with Excel, CSV and Access files.

Cons

Azure Machine Learning Studio

  • It would be great to have text tips that could ease new users to the platform, especially if an error shows up
  • Scenario-based documentation
  • Pre-processing of modules that had been previously run. Sometimes they need to be re-run for no apparent reason

It helps us to provide data just in time to our clients. With help of massively parallel processing, it consumes less time for both loading and querying the data and it also helps us to plan a more precise budget to our business and send just-in-time alerts in case of any outrage.

Support is nonexistent. It's very frustrating to try and find someone to actually talk to. The robot chatbots are just not well trained.

I am happy, the Azure team has strong customer support. They have an effective customer forum and weekly summits to encourage and establish their features and they support us in deep dives into the tool to utilize many benefits from it. They have 24/7 support and whenever we have issue they promptly resolve the tickets.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Machine Learning Studio

It is easier to learn, it has a very cost effective license for use, it has native build and created for Azure cloud services, and that makes it perfect when compared against the alternatives. As a Microsoft tool, it has been built to contain many visual features and improved usability even for non-specialist users.

Azure Synapse Analytics (Azure SQL Data Warehouse)

SQL Data Warehousing is much easier to manage if you already have SQL Server experience and analysts who are familiar with its interface. We are currently piloting using NoSQL and Hadoop type databases but it is difficult to get set up properly. Additionally, we have to re-train our users to learn how to create python scripts and use spark to query the data

Return on Investment

Azure Machine Learning Studio

  • Productivity: Instead of coding and recoding, Azure ML helped my organization to get to meaningful results faster;
  • Cost: Azure ML can save hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars for an organization, since the license costs around $15/month per seat.
  • Focus on insights and not on statistics: Since running a model is so easy, analysts can focus more on recommendations and insights, rather than statistical details

Azure Synapse Analytics (Azure SQL Data Warehouse)

  • We have had an improvement in our overall processing time
  • Cost was much lower than most of its competitors
  • Our reporting needs have grown and housing the data here has been great
