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.

SAS Enterprise Guide

I think SAS Enterprise does a great job for SAS analysts that don't have a very good grasp of base SAS. The software makes SAS much more user-friendly. With that said, SAS Enterprise Guide also does a very good job offering a host of per-packaged graphics and data transformations. I can't image using base SAS without SAS Enterprise anymore. I think SAS Enterprise Guide is most useful for traditional analytical processes, such as time-series forecasting, outlier detection, and econometrics. I think the software is less useful for advanced machine learning or AI. SAS' Enterprise Miner does a much better job at that.

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

SAS Enterprise Guide

  • Ability to load an AutoExec when opening a session ensuring everyone has the same global variables.
  • Formatting with Ctrl I. If you're reading someone else's code and it's not formatted correctly you can highlight the area and hit Ctrl I.

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.
Rohit Narang | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Enterprise Guide

  • Process time of data is a bit long. It depends on the size of your data and complexity of your project tree.
  • There is not enough online free training videos.
  • While working with the project tree sometimes the links between the modules are broken or the order for running the modules get mixed up. You should know your project tree by heart.

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.

Although I use SAS support for information on functions, these are SAS related and haven't really come across anything that is specifically for SAS EG.

I've not worked hands-on with the implementation team, but there were no escalations barring a few hiccups in the deployment due to change in requirement & adoption to our company's remote servers.

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.
Christopher Penn | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Enterprise Guide

Why I prefer SAS EG: Data processing speed is much faster than that R Studio. It can load any amount of data and any type of data like structured or unstructured or semi-structured. Its output delivery system by which we have the output in PDF file makes it very comfortable to use and share that file to clients very easily.Inbuilt functions are very powerful and plentiful. Facility of writing macros makes it far away from its competitors.

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

SAS Enterprise Guide

  • Positive (cost): SAS made a bundle that include unlimited usage of SAS/Enterprise Guide with a server solution. That by itself made the company save a lot of money by not having to pay individual licences anymore.
  • Positive (insight): Data analysts in business units often need to crunch data and they don't have access to ETL tools to do it. Having access to SAS/EG gives them that power.
  • Positive (time to market): Having the users develop components with SAS/EG allows for easier integration in a production environment (SAS batch job) as no code rework is required.
