- Steep learning curve — The majority of the products featured in this report have steep learning curves and require a serious allotment of time to train users on all the product features. Many of the products require users to have familiarity with statistics or to invest time into learning how to use the product.
- Features for the non-coding end user — Predictive analytics products mine through a tremendous amount of data to translate data sets into actionable, intelligent information. However, a few of the products featured in this Grid℠ report offer analytical templates, models, and drag-and-drop interfaces that circumvent coding and require less in-depth statistical knowledge.
- Database needs — According to reviews, users should be aware that managing and analyzing data is directly aligned with the size of a business’ database. While the products included in this report tout scalability, the flexibility for a product to align with the size and needs of a company was a frequently mentioned concern.
