KNIME Analytics Platform

If you have a team of engineers or data scientists who do not like to code, KNIME can be a good platform to build quick and dirty pipelines. However if you are moving away from R&D to deployment, KNIME lacks the scalability compared to Python or R itself. When deploying, you can choose to output json or use their native front end from KNIME Server, but KNIME Server is not free.

Microsoft Flow is highly effective to those individualized work environments for those who have the flexibility to customize their processes. While the O365 suite is often available as a whole, in some environments such as campus life or education areas I could see this being less effective. This product is definitely geared for the office/business enterprise environment.

Pros

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • KNIME works better than most tools for ETL functions.
  • Easy to track the different steps
  • Easy to isolate and fix specific workflow steps.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • Approval workflows, it makes getting approvals in a succinct order very easy and Flow does this in spades
  • Starting a workflow based on a certain "trigger" . Having workflows start when you want them to is far and away one Microsoft Flow's strengths.
  • Allthe different outside services you can interface with. It really is a impressive list. From Dropbox to Wunderlist, really amazing

Cons

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • Visualization can be improved further though it has been better with new versions, with a lot of scope available. However, connectivity to Tableau somehow overcomes this. Also, skilled resources are difficult to find for KNIME, due to other solutions having better penetration.
  • Knowledge of R/Python is required to fully use the statistical analysis (rather than just data mining). Also, memory usage is a problematic issue sometimes.
  • Not enough domain usage experience can be shared between KNIME users as well.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • Approval emails can't be sent from custom senders
  • Issues with cutting and pasting steps
  • Limitations on how workflows are triggered with SharePoint Lists
  • Difficult to find release notes

Since it is relatively new, there has not developed a vast previously asked/frequently asked questions library that comes up when you google an issue you come across with. This will happen only in time, and as the community grows. Because of the same reason, the community is not big. Consequently, it is possible not to receive good, fast responses to asked questions in community hubs and forums.

So Microsoft Flow support for its general troubleshooting or correcting issues is excellent. But to my knowledge, Microsoft Flow itself does not have service providers, even though they offer templates on their online app. I have found myself many times trying to complete individual actions that have no known template or even forum example. Every business is unique, and Microsoft does an excellent job of providing versatile yet straightforward systems. Microsoft Flow is definitely on the more advanced side of things. Having support or being able to purchase superior service (on building personalized flows) would be great.

Alternatives Considered

KNIME Analytics Platform

KNIME is a lower price point and has strong cross platform capabilities. Other platforms are locked to a specific operating system and cost in some cases substantially more, making them less good choices for smaller businesses that still need basic data unification. The fact that KNIME is OS-independent is a big positive.

We thought of Zapier on the other hand, but what made us to chose Flow is mainly its seamless connectivity with Microsoft products and all the existing relationship what we had with Microsoft.

Return on Investment

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • Lowest TCO compared to other tools
  • Accelerates analysis - the analysts can dedicate more time to analysis itself, not to data preparation
Viktor Mulac | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Power Automate

  • It has pushed some degree of user support to the users who are closest to their own processes, and has allowed the burden of support to shift from ONLY IT to business groups for us.
  • There is a better chance for us to get support with a Microsoft product internally than anything else (Nintex, Oracle, SAP, etc...) because of our license agreement.
  • Time will tell how well Flow allows us to re-create the environment we had with on-prem Nintex and SharePoint 2016. It appears that it could, but it is too early to tell how easy adoption of a slightly more technically complex tool will be for our operating company, sister operating companies, and parent company.
