Overall Satisfaction with Anaconda

Anaconda is use by all the different analytics teams at my company. It solves for a unified, easy to install, toolkit with all the base scientific packages an analyst might need.
  • Package Management. Some packages are difficult to install on different platforms. This is simplified with Anaconda.
  • Dedicated servers. More control over security.
  • Collaboration. Analysts can interact with and checkout notebooks and datasets.
  • Requires dedicated administration.
  • Expensive.
  • Removes some control from end-users (analysts).
  • Centralized repository for all notebooks and analysis projects.
  • Solved for some security concerns from IT.
  • Saves money by avoiding ad-hoc computer resources for analysts.
Other systems might be easier to set-up but Anaconda is a fairly flexible analytics toolkit. It can be configured in a way that truly matches the way in which your business or analytics department works. Built on top of lots of open source projects so things aren't siloed and you can avoid vendor lock-in.
Useful for collaborating across multiple teams on data projects. Also great for distributed workflows which require more processing power than a local machine.

Less useful for quick exploratory analysis. Need to host datasets outside of local.
