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.

Tableau Online

Tableau is very well suited for large organizations because of its cost. It has a great visual design. It is particularly useful when there is data integration with other software required. Dashboards come out very well in such cases and help make sense out of data. These dashboards are used on a frequent basis once a baseline or a parameter is defined. Trend analysis and forecasting are a key to using this software and this is where it comes in very handy.

Pros

KNIME Analytics Platform

Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau Online

  • Software is compatible with numerous interfaces, making it quite scalable.
  • Robust visualization feature set -- perhaps even industry leading.
  • Graphs are dynamic and intuitive to use which helps organizations focus on what really matters -- making the right decision at the right time.
  • Intuitive user interface helps analysts quickly setup scalable reports.

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

Tableau Online

  • I'm not sure if this is standard for everyone but our Tableau is updated twice a week so the information may not be the most up-to-date possible.
  • There's no search function in the tool which would help me a lot if I am seeking information about a specific item.
  • There are frequent software updates which require you to completely reinstall everything.

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

Tableau Online

Both Tableau Online and BI solutions provide visualizations. In Power BI we choose the visualization first, then drag the data into it. In Tableau, we select the data and switch between visualizations on the fly. It’s easier to jump between visualizations in Tableau. Power BI might be sluggish when working with extremely large datasets whereas Tableau online has an advantage in this area due to its extensive features.Power BI doesn’t have the ability to publish reports with all associated data which means some information can be left out of visualizations whereas Tableau online has a steep learning curve and flexible features.

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
