    Jupyter Notebook

    I've created a number of daisy chain notebooks for different workflows, and every time, I create my workflows with other users in mind. Jupiter Notebook makes it very easy for me to outline my thought process in as granular a way as I want without using innumerable small. inline comments.

    MATLAB

    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

    Jupyter Notebook

    • Code presentation- with Jupyter Notebook you can deploy codes and markdowns which makes the code easy to read and understand.
    • User interface- the user interface of the Jupyter Notebook is very smooth, there are a lot of easy shortcuts as well the icons to make our work easier
    • Server hosting- with Jupyter Notebook server hosting is very easy which adds to the security feature
    Aditya Kumar | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MATLAB

    • 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

    Jupyter Notebook

    • Need more Hotkeys for creating a beautiful notebook. Sometimes we need to download other plugins which messes [with] its default settings.
    • Not as powerful as IDE, which sometimes makes [the] job difficult and allows duplicate code as it get confusing when the number of lines increases. Need a feature where [an] error comes if duplicate code is found or [if a] developer tries the same function name.

    MATLAB

    • 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.

    Jupyter is highly simplistic. It took me about 5 mins to install and create my first "hello world" without having to look for help. The UI has minimalist options and is quite intuitive for anyone to become a pro in no time. The lightweight nature makes it even more likeable.

    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.

    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

    Jupyter Notebook

    I have used PyCharm as well as Jupyter Notebook and for me, Jupyter wins almost every time. I really like its user-friend interface for someone who is new to python programming. The ability to run a big chunk of code part by part is a big game-changer for me. One thing I would like is a night mode just like PyCharm as it helps the night owls like myself who work a big part during the night. I also like how Anaconda command prompt helps you download a library and just a simple import statement in the notebook helps you extract every functionality.

    MATLAB

    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

    Jupyter Notebook

    • Positive impact: flexible implementation on any OS, for many common software languages
    • Positive impact: straightforward duplication for adaptation of workflows for other projects
    • Negative impact: sometimes encourages pigeonholing of data science work into notebooks versus extending code capability into software integration
    Lindsay Veazey | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MATLAB

    • 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.
