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 Visual Analytics

It is particularly well suited to big data collections that have good structure. It is not really designed for unstructured datasets (documents, etc). Its strength is the processing speed (particularly when implemented on Hadoop). It is not cheap but it is worth it!

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 Visual Analytics

  • Our staff are familiar with it as it is a common tool. Our training and implementation was short.
  • Installation was easy. Our staff was able to deploy to the receiving department relatively quickly. Though the download was a pretty good size.
  • Seems to crunch through large volumes of data (millions of records) pretty quickly as I've received no complaints on this front from staff.

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 Visual Analytics

  • Customizing a report as per the user requirement.
  • Adding more color and font styles. Presenting data in a more colorful way.
  • The website has a lot of tutorials which is more inclined to the technical side. Maybe add more to the presentation side as well.

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.

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 Visual Analytics

SAS Visual Analytics stuck against IBM SPSS Modeler and Tableau in the sense that, it is far more accurate and reliable in the aspect of data and statistical analyses than others. Also, it is not just globally recognized as the leader in the field of statistical and data analysis, but also the most used statistical software worldwide. In addition, it combines the functionality of both IBM SPSS Modeler and Tableau which implies, it is comprehensive and has the widest coverage.

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 Visual Analytics

  • SAS Visual Analytics licensing cost should be reduced to enable users to use it in mass scale.
  • More statistical and mathematical equations and theories should be converted into SAS functions for reusing.
  • Because of enriched ETL and reporting capabilities SAS Visual Analytics is most preferred by business users.
