| ||Ask HN: How to Determine the Software Package to Use for Data Analysis?|
1 point by enkirah on July 27, 2013 | hide | past | web | favorite |
|Currently I am working on defining a data analysis package for a lab that will process gigs of data a week. I would like to have the best solution but so far my team, and I, can only make a decision based on personal preferences. Which, is no way to make a technical decision, so I ask you HN:
1) How would you pick what package to use? (Please justify your answer and include measurable variables.)
2) What package would you pick based on the information below?|
- Ability to Handle 10 Gigs in Tab Delimited Tables
- Produce Plots
- Produce Formatted Tables
- Produce a Word Document Report with Plots and Tables
3) What are good places to look for bench marking information for VBA vs Matlab vs Python?
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
