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 Public

Tableau Public is great, especially if you're new to the platform or considering implementing it within an organization. The Public version has most of the capabilities of the full version, with extensive community documentation to troubleshoot issues you may run into. Additionally, there are many resources to check out Public workbooks from other users and communities: a GREAT learning resource to figure out new, innovative ways to visualize and present data. It is perfect for evaluating public datasets, for doing exploratory data analysis, or contributing to cross-organizational or extracurricular projects that may benefit from more sophisticated data analysis and exploration. Tableau Public, because it stores to the cloud and has limitations on connectivity (ie, cannot connect to SQL servers) is not suited for confidential, financial, PII, etc., data, and care should be taken to avoid including sensitive data in any of the Tableau Public workbooks used by an individual or organization.

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

Tableau Public

  • Tableau Public offers free tools for creative people to learn the products with minimal investment "up front", as well as providing a place to share data visualizations and insights with the world. Visualizations are hosted (for no charge) by Tableau Software and may be accessed by members of the local community (via links from an organization's website) or from anywhere in the world. Workbook(s) published to Tableau Public may be downloaded by viewers to see techniques used by the creator, and get good ideas.
  • Tableau Public Premium is similar but removes the download functionality. This works well when the publisher wants to share access to the visualizations (e.g. on the organization's website) but NOT share the underlying workbooks nor data, keeping both confidential.

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 Public

  • In order to keep your data private, you have to buy a subscription
  • Problems with embedding on some websites
  • Must have a professional subscription to share with your network

It's free, right? I'll keep using the free version. So the real question to ask is this? Will I pay $999 for the Personal version or $1,999 for the Professional? Yikes! That is a big stretch. I'm not sure about that. The product comparison chart is at: http://www.tableausoftware.com/public/comparison

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.

I haven't needed any technical support, so I toyed with the idea of rating this 10, since it is well designed, and there are sufficient videos on their site to help me learn it.

I found it sufficient, and fast. I could easily "kick the tires" with Tableau on my data so I got up and running fast.

Start at the end and work backward. Identify the business case / issue and questions the end users have, then identify the data needed, and where to get it.

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 Public

Tableau Public provides a variety of visualization and point-and-click functionality, with little or no scripting, gives Tableau the advantage. Also, being lightweight, Tableau Public finds the ease of use from our PSU bank-clients that use low-end hardware and devices. Tableau public helps raise satisfaction index, by way of ease of use and beautiful visualizations.
Hiren Mistry | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Tableau Public

  • Quick visualizations.
  • Clean design. If you are a fan of Edward Tufte or Stephen Few, then you favor a lean, clean look. That seems to be Tableau's default. I appreciate that.
