RStudio

Well suited: For anyone interested in data analysis. R can help you do a simple exploratory analysis to increase your R Square with a boosted decision tree! It's probably one of the most comprehensive analytics tools.Less appropriate: Maybe if you have a team more focused on business and less on data analysis (marketers, salespeople, for instance), RStudio might not be the best, since the learning curve is complicated.

SAP Predictive Analytics

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.

Pros

RStudio

  • Rstudio is very customizable. You can easily change font colors, sizes, and screen layout. I am particular about how I like my IDE setup, so this is a big plus for me.
  • Rstudio allows you to look at datasets in your workspace with the click of a button. I do a lot of data manipulation, so I am constantly having to look at datasets after operations to make sure they look correct. The view option in Rstudio makes checking datasets very fast.
  • Finally, I love the way Rstudio manages plotting. Your plots can be viewed in one of the panels. Those plots can easily be copy/pasted or exported into a variety of file types. You can also magnify the plots and scroll between plots to look at previous plots.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • 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

RStudio

  • When you first start with RStudio, you need to install and then reference them in your script. In my view RStudio should come with pre-installed packages that most fundamental to any data analysis. Few example packages are 'dplyr' and 'ggplot.'
  • While everything in RStudio is achieved via writing script, it should include more point and click tasks such as right-clicking temporary datasets and removing them.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It's extremely hard to get started. We even have a data scientist who, when we put Predictive Analytics in front of them, they could not intuitively create a data model and start analyzing. Even with deep knowledge of data analysis, the interface isn't intuitive and it's hard to get to the point of having imported a data set and start analyzing/predicting
  • Our platform team had confusion installing Predictive Analytics, particularly on the BI Platform. Additional complexity came when it came to using APL Libraries (AFL Wrapper or Stored Procedures)
  • We are still working on merging datasets. In theory, we get how to do it but we come across all sorts of issues which don't occur in Spotfire (missing records etc.)

We have internal BI tools support R libraries. So, Rstudio is our natural choice for other prototyping needs and predictions. Rstudio has been rather stable for quick needs and do not plan to switch to any other tool. It is free and we are not bound to pay anything. It is quick to learn and use.

I think it's a quick and easy to use tool. The IDE is very intuitive and easy to adapt to. You do not need to learn a lot of things to use this tool. Any programmer and a person with knowledge or R can quick use this tool without issues.

Since R is trendy among statisticians, you can find lots of help from the data science/ stats communities. If you need help with anything related to RStudio or R, google it or search on StackOverflow, you might easily find the solution that you are looking for.

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

RStudio

RStudio is the free alternative to MATLAB. It works just as well as the other software, and more features can be accessed but to the open-source nature. This software is more commonplace in the research lab setting due to its free cost.

SAP Predictive 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

RStudio

  • We've been able to implement several predictive models that stratify risk among our patient population which has been a positive impact.
  • We've conducted several clinical program evaluations using the MatchIt package in RStudio which demonstrated the clinical effectiveness of our programs.
  • We've kept the costs relatively low in productionalizing our models by running all automated jobs through RStudio using the Linux server CRONTAB.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It will potentially save time in forecast creation by giving an algorithm-derived forecast which can then be adjusted vs. starting from scratch. We can call this, a system enabled forecast
  • Thresholds can be created based on historical data to flag actuals as in/out of the 'norm', or to limit the scope of an investigation
  • We spent a lot of time so far and haven't got very far with it - it's been quite frustrating to use and a lot of time/money has been invested
