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.

SAP Predictive Analytics

It's a great tool to merge actual data analysis (which Lumira doesn't do that well) with visualization (which Lumira does well) - so it can be seen as Lumira for data analysts. However, a lot of the 'predictive' side is hidden/black box which can be frustrating for those analysts, so you could argue it is too complex for casual users, but too 'black box' for analysts.

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.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It doesn't require you to have a Ph.D. to build models!
  • You can use it to address a very large and wide dataset without worrying about sampling.
  • Automation is in the product DNA. You can prepare your data, ingest it into the "Kernel", then get insights about what was found, decide to publish it and schedule scoring tasks or model refresh in the same product.

Cons

DataRobot

  • Oversold the capabilities.
  • Lack of strong signals in results.
  • Requires heavy engineering support for integration.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It's extremely hard to get started. We even have a data scientist who, when we put Predictive Analytics in front of them, they could not intuitively create a data model and start analyzing. Even with deep knowledge of data analysis, the interface isn't intuitive and it's hard to get to the point of having imported a data set and start analyzing/predicting
  • Our platform team had confusion installing Predictive Analytics, particularly on the BI Platform. Additional complexity came when it came to using APL Libraries (AFL Wrapper or Stored Procedures)
  • We are still working on merging datasets. In theory, we get how to do it but we come across all sorts of issues which don't occur in Spotfire (missing records etc.)

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.

the UI is a bit dated and available as a desktop tool mostly.

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.

The documentation provides an explanation about what features are available but not necessarily what's happening behind the scenes. On the other side, the "community" has grown since the acquisition and most questions are properly addressed by SAP folks. Since the "product maintenance" mode announcement was made, there wasn't much new content published except on the Smart Predict side (which is built by the SAP Predictive Analytics team)

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.

SAP Predictive Analytics

We have typically used Spotfire for data analysis but decided to move to SAP Business Objects due to its innate connection with SAP. I found Lumira to be good for visualizations but it is not meant for data analysis. Therefore, we have introduced Predictive Analytics to see if it can fill that gap. So far, it's been far less intuitive than Spotfire to get started, and as far as I am aware so far, it does not bring many additional capabilities. I do, however, like that it utilizes the Lumira look/feel and integrates very well.

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.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It will potentially save time in forecast creation by giving an algorithm-derived forecast which can then be adjusted vs. starting from scratch. We can call this, a system enabled forecast
  • Thresholds can be created based on historical data to flag actuals as in/out of the 'norm', or to limit the scope of an investigation
  • We spent a lot of time so far and haven't got very far with it - it's been quite frustrating to use and a lot of time/money has been invested
