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.

  • 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
KNIME
  • It does not have proper visualization.
  • Some other BI tools (QlikView) have much easier functions for data interaction.
  • Some other BI tools (Tableau) can be set up much faster.
  • It is not an easy tool to use for non-tech savvy staff.

  • Working with this software is very simple and enjoyable for me as [an] IT consultant and expert, but it is a bit complicated for novice users.
  • Some big data takes more time‌to load, which I think could be faster

KNIME
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.

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
KNIME
  • Alteryx : allows for generally "data" knowledgeable workers to easily implement and develop a data model in an automated fashion. The collaboration tools built in also make is easy for members to share work, best practices, and custom modules
  • Alteryx is not cloud based solution where as KNIME Analytics has that
  • Alteryx was selected due to better user interface and better in data 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
KNIME
  • It is suited for data mining or machine learning work but If we're looking for advanced stat methods such as mixed effects linear/logistics models, that needs to be run through an R node.
  • Thinking of our peers with an advanced visualization techniques requirement, it is a lagging product.

  • Proper forecasting increases our credibility with partners and customers
  • Forecasting determines the amount of investment in each sector and reduces the cost of additional costs
