DataRobot

DataRobot is equipped to serve both cloud computing and on-premise work. Its comprehensive cloud module, channeled through Amazon sustains highly flexible machine learning programs. Lower than average costs are provided via cloud networking because there is no need to install hardware and the additional pricing that comes along with that. DataRobot assists in eliminating hassle by offering various methods of deployment in regard to predictive modeling. The program may not be appropriate for smaller startups of 20 or fewer employees, mainly because the exportable prediction code, and native batch scoring may not translate as well to a smaller firm.

Microsoft Power BI

I would definately recommend [Microsoft] Power BI, its an amazing product, despite of the cons, the product is still remarkable and unique in the values that it provides.If you have scattered data left undiscovered, or need solid reporting and analytics, or even just simply want to impress your management with detailed, beautiful and organized reports that are automatically refreshed with fresh content, Power BI is absolutely the tool to go for.It can import data from an overwhelming amount of sources, such as Excel, SQL Server, Adobe Analytics, Google Analytics, Sales Force, MySQL, Amazon Redshift and many others, and it allows you to quickly and easily build and publish beautiful reports that always impresses the executives and management.[Microsoft] Power BI is one of a few products that I would recommend to literally anyone who uses a computer, there is always a use case for Power BI, especially the desktop version, the moment you create your first report you realize how much time and effort it saves and how much insights it gives on your data, personally, Power BI is an essential part of my work and I truly enjoy building reports and gathering/transforming data using it.

Pros

DataRobot

  • The interface is easy to use and self-service, with intuitive design.
  • The product is easy to use for data analysts and business users without having to be a data scientist, but if you are one the product is robust, so data scientists can also get some use.
  • All of the screens have explanations of all data points, models, and this makes it easy to provide explanations at the executive level and can easily modify models on the fly.

Microsoft Power BI

  • Using features like Power Query, which is in itself like a tool like Excel, you can clean and preview data before using it for analysis purposes. If you have used Excel in the past, Power Query will, for the most part, be a cakewalk for you.
  • The predominant feature one comes to Power BI is the ability to create automated formidable dashboards that everyone refers to before or during meetings to encourage and substantiate decision-making.
  • If required, based on specific data points, reports are triggered automatically to certain people as well.

Cons

DataRobot

  • Oversold the capabilities.
  • Lack of strong signals in results.
  • Requires heavy engineering support for integration.
Shanna Tellerman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Power BI

  • Since it's a complex system, need a technical team or administrator to manage.
  • I don't like being locked out. Make it easier to stay log[ged] in and not fill in password.
  • SSO login would be huge! This would save a lot of time and improve security.

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.

I think using Microsoft Power BI can be somewhat intimidating as you kind of get everything in one go and with lack of good tutorials or trainings within the system it could be difficult to navigate and that is probably a big limitations that doesn't allow more people to adopt the platform and thus improve their decision making.

We were unable to make use of the software without a lot of investment on our side. While their team reaches out frequently the software is not designed for companies with smaller data sets and this should have been reviewed before the contract was signed and not after. Their team is available to support your existing team but they cannot make the software work if it's not applied to the right size data set or the right problems. I highly recommend uncovering these issues before signing a contract.

Microsoft's support is great most times, they will respond fast and make everything to come to a solution. Also, the software is very well documented, so many times there is no need to contact the support because the documentation may have a solution right away

Alternatives Considered

DataRobot

No competition, especially with data enablement services offered through DataRobot. The self-service and intuitive screens with explanations can’t be beat in DataRobot.

Microsoft Power BI

[Microsoft] Power BI is practical and effective, like a hammer for a nail, it is easy to use and produces very quickly the results that in most cases are urgently required by clients (nice reports to share on the web). To start using [Microsoft] Power BI you need a business email address, with that you create an account in Power BI Service and in less than 1 hour you will have installed Power BI Desktop, a report will have been created and it will have been published on the web .

Return on Investment

DataRobot

  • DataRobot can run multiple experiments at the same time. This helps to minimize time spent on any given experiment.
  • DataRobot helps to get rid of bottlenecks by yielding various ways to enact completed models of prediction.
  • I consider the Return on Investment high. APIs for real-time scoring have saved us many dollars and time.

Microsoft Power BI

  • It helps us track and achieve company goals.
  • It shows us [our] performance in areas we could not previously track and allows us to see and work on how to improve their performance.
  • Quick easy access for executives to use in helping teams and addressing issues.
