DataRobot

Best for rapid iteration. Best for use by a less skilled analyst under the guise of a true data scientist. Best for tremendous speed to value. It is less appropriate when needing to predict multiple targets simultaneously. Understandably, DataRobot does not cover all ML modeling problems, such as Recency, Frequency, Monetary Value modeling.

Mode

Mode is great for speed and presentation. If you have a business idea, want to see a data prototype to validate your hunch, and need something to easily pull a few lines of SQL code and build a dashboard, Mode is a perfect solution. It's also a tool that allows for easy dashboard sharing. It does not have some of the nuances offered by Tableau but wins out in simplicity/intuitiveness. If you're looking for high-level modeling/forecasting, however, Mode comes up a bit short. Anything requiring a lot of processing power should be moved to a dedicated notebook/programming environment.

Cons

DataRobot

  • The importance of realizing that most software programming in the Predictive Analysis genre is not 100% ideal cannot be overstated. It's tough to locate a program that would fulfill every need of every business type and size. Though DataRobot is about as close as it gets, it may not be for every industry.
  • Though DataRobot helps to capture six sigma techniques, knowledge, and expertise of the best data scientists in the nation, it may end up causing rifts in intercompany personnel due to fear of job loss on a long term scale.
  • Though fairly priced for a firm of our size and capability, it may be out of market reach for smaller companies at this point. It's important for every firm to understand exactly what they need and can afford.

  • Requires advanced knowledge to use
  • Drilldowns and filters are not simple

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.

For the advanced user already familiar with Python. It is just the same tool, already managed and connected to the data.

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.

Alternatives Considered

DataRobot

I was only involved in manual model creation using python packages such as Sklearn and TensorFlow, and can attest that no matter how much time I spend with model creation, DataRobot will beat my manual models in accuracy and precision. Why waste time on something that is optimizable and automatable?

Reporting is much more flexible, although database visualization is a bit better there.
