Overall Satisfaction with MATLAB

MATLAB is primarily used by the geophysics group in our company to understand the geophysical makeup of their wells to add insight for their drilling program.
  • The programing language to enable functions is straight forward and fairly intuitive to understand.
  • MATLAB does have intro lessons to help end-users become familiar with the MATLAB and its specific programming language.
  • MATLAB has an incredible community of users and challenges to further and help end-users to use MATLAB for leisure and professional purposes.
  • More examples of how MATLAB can be used in other functional areas such as Finance and Accounting. I can definitely see how MatLab can be used for mathematics and sciences and other statistical uses but it is readily apparent for other areas.
  • I have not used MATLAB for my business objectives but I realize the value is learning platforms of other machine learning technology.
It seems MATLAB has built-in functionality that is sometimes missing in Spotfire and can only be enabled in Spotfire with additional programming language like Iron Python.
This is a neutral rating as I have not used support for MATLAB.
