KNIME Analytics Platform

KNIME Analytics Platform is best suited for an introduction to Data Science/Data Analytics. Since this area requires a somewhat computer science background because of data reading, retrieving, handling, preprocessing, model development, deployment is all carried out in some programming languages, and it is hard for a non-CS major to do these without knowing Python/R. This is where the KNIME Analytics Platform becomes handy. It contains graphical, drag-drop nodes that do these for you with no coding. Nodes are connected with one's output being another's input, as a workflow. Therefore end-to-end pipeline can be built with no coding. It also enables newcomers to the profession to follow up on what's going on in the pipeline, makes it easier to troubleshoot/debug, because it is very visual and intuitive. However, when high customization, sophisticated models, and speed is needed. KNIME Analytics Platform is less flexible and slow. So it is best for non-CS people, the business units.

RStudio

Well suited: For anyone interested in data analysis. R can help you do a simple exploratory analysis to increase your R Square with a boosted decision tree! It's probably one of the most comprehensive analytics tools.Less appropriate: Maybe if you have a team more focused on business and less on data analysis (marketers, salespeople, for instance), RStudio might not be the best, since the learning curve is complicated.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

RStudio

  • Rstudio is very customizable. You can easily change font colors, sizes, and screen layout. I am particular about how I like my IDE setup, so this is a big plus for me.
  • Rstudio allows you to look at datasets in your workspace with the click of a button. I do a lot of data manipulation, so I am constantly having to look at datasets after operations to make sure they look correct. The view option in Rstudio makes checking datasets very fast.
  • Finally, I love the way Rstudio manages plotting. Your plots can be viewed in one of the panels. Those plots can easily be copy/pasted or exported into a variety of file types. You can also magnify the plots and scroll between plots to look at previous plots.

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.

RStudio

  • When you first start with RStudio, you need to install and then reference them in your script. In my view RStudio should come with pre-installed packages that most fundamental to any data analysis. Few example packages are 'dplyr' and 'ggplot.'
  • While everything in RStudio is achieved via writing script, it should include more point and click tasks such as right-clicking temporary datasets and removing them.

We have internal BI tools support R libraries. So, Rstudio is our natural choice for other prototyping needs and predictions. Rstudio has been rather stable for quick needs and do not plan to switch to any other tool. It is free and we are not bound to pay anything. It is quick to learn and use.

I think it's a quick and easy to use tool. The IDE is very intuitive and easy to adapt to. You do not need to learn a lot of things to use this tool. Any programmer and a person with knowledge or R can quick use this tool without issues.

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.

Since R is trendy among statisticians, you can find lots of help from the data science/ stats communities. If you need help with anything related to RStudio or R, google it or search on StackOverflow, you might easily find the solution that you are looking for.

Alternatives Considered

KNIME Analytics Platform

Knime is much more user simple than any high-level programming language. The ability to connect nodes ad produces outputs in minutes is a large benefit for this program
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

RStudio

RStudio is the free alternative to MATLAB. It works just as well as the other software, and more features can be accessed but to the open-source nature. This software is more commonplace in the research lab setting due to its free cost.

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

RStudio

  • We've been able to implement several predictive models that stratify risk among our patient population which has been a positive impact.
  • We've conducted several clinical program evaluations using the MatchIt package in RStudio which demonstrated the clinical effectiveness of our programs.
  • We've kept the costs relatively low in productionalizing our models by running all automated jobs through RStudio using the Linux server CRONTAB.
