    If one takes the time to learn the platform, the platform can be very useful for making predictions. It's not perfect, and you do need your real-world insight to determine if their predictions have the potential to be better than an internal system or a rudimentary system or are wildly off, but for our business, just a slight improvement can mean thousands of dollars in both revenue and thousands of dollars of savings from not purchasing items we may have otherwise purchased.

    MATLAB really does best for solving computational problems in math and engineering. Especially when you have to use a lot of functions in your solving process, or if you have a nonlinear equation that must be iteratively solved. [MATLAB] can also perform things like integration and derivation on your equations that you put into it.

    Pros

    DataRobot

    • DataRobot helps, with algorithms, to analyze and decipher numerous machine-learning techniques in order to provide models to assist in company-wide decision making.
    • Our DataRobot program puts on an "even playing field" the strength of auto-machine learning and allows us to make decisions in an extremely timely manner. The speed is consistent without being offset by errors or false-negatives.
    • It encompasses many desired techniques that help companies in general, to reconfigure in to artificial intelligence driven firms, with little to no inconvenience.

    • It has a very user friendly library which helps users learn this software fairly quickly in a short span of time.
    • The graphical user interface provided by the software is really good.
    • The code that a person writes allows options for debugging.
    • One can visualize the flow of control of their code inside MATLAB.

    Cons

    DataRobot

    • Further improvements to their text analysis tool, to be more like the Qualtrics text analysis tool, would be a great addition. Qualtrics has templates built into their text analysis tool for customer service, quality control, etc, and will automatically slot your text responses into categories associated with certain sub areas of those larger categories.

    • MatLab is pricier than most of its competitors and because of this reason, many organizations are moving towards cheaper alternatives - mostly Python.
    • MatLab is inefficient when it comes to performing a large number of iterations. It gets laggy and often crashes. Python is better in this regard.
    • There is a limited number of hardware options (mostly NI) that can be connected directly to the data acquisition toolbox.

      DataRobot

      DataRobot presents a machine-learning platform designed by data scientists from an array of backgrounds, to construct and develop precise predictive modeling in a fraction of the time previously taken. The tech invloved addresses the critical shortage of data scientists by changing the speed and economics of predictive analytics. DataRobot utilizes parallel processing to evaluate models in R, Python, Spark MLlib, H2O and other open source databases. It searches for possible permutations and algorithms, features, transformation, processes, steps and tuning to yield the best models for the dataset and predictive goal.

      MATLAB is pretty easy to use. You can extend its capabilities using the programming interface. Very flexible capabilities when it comes to graphical presentation of your data (so many different kinds of options for your plotting needs). Anytime you are working with large data sets, or with matrices, MATLAB is likely to be very helpful.

      As I am writing this report I am participating with Datarobot Engineers in an complex environment and we have their whole support. We are in Mexico and is not common to have this commitment from companies without expensive contract services. Installing is on premise and the client does not want us to take control and they, the client, is also limited because of internal IT regulations ,,, soo we are just doing magic and everybody is committed.

      The built-in search engine is not as performing as I wish it would be. However, the YouTube channel has a vast library of informative video that can help understanding the software. Also, many other software have a nice bridge into MATLAB, which makes it very versatile. Overall, the support for MATLAB is good.

      Alternatives Considered

      DataRobot

      Many products tend to offer a sort of baseline interface with statistical models and call it AI. These are things like linear regression formulas being built into BI platforms (Tableau, PowerBI). The problem with these types of platforms is often the depth and accuracy of the models. DataRobot generates real, accurate AI models using cutting-edge algorithms to fit your data. These models are generally extremely accurate, and often given more detailed insights than other platforms like Alteryx or H20.

      How MATLAB compares to its competition or similar open access tools like R (programming language) or SciLab is that it's simply more powerful and capable. It embraces a wider spectrum of possibilities for far more fields than any other environment. R, for example, is intended primarily for the area of statistical computing. SciLab, on the other hand, is a similar open access tool that falls very short in its computing capabilities. It's much slower when running larger scripts and isn't documented or supported nearly as well as MATLAB.

      Return on Investment

      DataRobot

      • We have been able to cut costs by not buying leads that we will not be able to sell on
      • We have been able to deploy loan eligibility reporting which brought in new business
      • We have been able to improve the performance of our credit providers and our partners which has helped to retain business

      • MATLAB helps us quickly sort through large sets of data because we keep the same script each time we run an analyzation, making it very efficient to run this whole process.
      • The software makes it super easy for us to create plots that we can then show to investors or clients to display our data.
      • We are also looking to create an app for our product, and we will not be able to do that on MATLAB, therefore creating a limiting issue and a new learning curve for a programming language.
