Data Science Workbench

Organizations which already implemented on-premise Hadoop based Cloudera Data Platform (CDH) for their Big Data warehouse architecture will definitely get more value from seamless integration of Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW) with their existing CDH Platform. However, for organizations with hybrid (cloud and on-premise) data platform without prior implementation of CDH, implementing CDSW can be a challenge technically and financially.

IBM CPLEX Optimization Studio

It is well suited for solving large-sized, mixed-integer, and integer programming problems. Now, the new version supports for Multi-Objective optimization along with some new algorithms such as Benders Decomposition. It is less appropriate for quadratic programming problems where the objective function is the product of multiple variables. However, it's very easy to code any problem.

Pros

Data Science Workbench

  • One single IDE (browser based application) that makes Scala, R, Python integrated under one tool
  • For larger organizations/teams, it lets you be self reliant
  • As it sits on your cluster, it has very easy access of all the data on the HDFS
  • Linking with Github is a very good way to keep the code versions intact

Cloudera Data Science Workbench has excellence online resources support such as documentation and examples. On top of that the enterprise license also comes with SLA on opening a ticket to Cloudera Services and support for complaint handling and troubleshooting by email or through a phone call. On top of that it also offers additional paid training services.

Honestly, to say, I never contacted CPLEX but used its forum to know/clarify any issues I faced.

Alternatives Considered

Data Science Workbench

Both the tools have similar features and have made it pretty easy to install/deploy/use. Depending on your existing platform (Cloudera vs. Azure) you need to pick the Workbench. Another observation is that Cloudera has better support where you can get feedback on your questions pretty fast (unlike MS). As its a new product, I expect MS to be more efficient in handling customers questions.

Compared with MATLAB, CPLEX is a more user-friendly and simpler structure for writing models. This one also has a good return on investment.
