"Great, except for Git integration"

What do you like best?

Connecting to/from Google services is very easy. Spinning up new instances is quite fast, and you get all the goodness of Jupyter notebooks.

What do you dislike?

Ungit has one of the worst UIs of any product I've ever used. There are too many steps needed to get to the command-line git for my notebooks. I've sometimes had my SSH key for my instance stop working and have had to delete it, resulting in loss of work if I haven't committed my notebook to git.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would definitely recommend it if you are storing most of your data in Google Cloud already - ease of connection between Google Cloud Storage, BigQuery, and other services is the killer feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Datalab for testing my deployed services and for doing data exploration and analysis. I also use it for presentations involving code.

"We already had an ETL solution in place, but its better"

What do you like best?

There are many features which I can speak about, but its overall ease with which you can analyze your data within a couple of clicks is an outstanding feature. Also, the stunning visualization with lots of statistical options, makes it a valuable product.

What do you dislike?

Google Cloud Datalab comes out with one major release every year and minor releases frequently, which is very good. Also, most of the changes are done based on the ideas posted on the community, which means it listens to the user base to come up with the changes, which is phenomenal.

As far as the changes I would like to see, they could improve performance with respect to big data connections and cube data sources. Many users in my organization feel that Google Cloud Datalab is great with RDBMS, but with Hadoop or cube data sources, the performance is not so great.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we started with Google Cloud Datalab, it was basically used for converting existing Excel reports. But later on, after exploring the features and with latest releases, it had a greater impact on the way we interact with the data. We were able to connect the data from different source of data together. We were able to relate the defects, quality and cost aspects of the products of our company from different regions in a much more efficient way. The visualizations gave a better picture of the current state of affairs and we got an idea of what needs to be improved in the line of business. Now, Google Cloud Datalab has become an integral part of our organization for any analytical solution.

Ungit has one of the most exceedingly bad UIs of any item I've at any point utilized. There are such a large number of steps expected to get to the direction line git for my scratch pad.

"Google Always Does a Good Job, Just Never the Best"

What do you like best?

Google Cloud Datalab does a good job at creating a platform that's generally user-friendly and easy to learn. The product does what it says it does, in a no frills sort of way.

What do you dislike?

As with most Google products, Google Cloud Datalab is basic. It does what it says it does, and that's about it. It's not for someone looking for beautiful analytics or data visualization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd recommend users look at other options in addition to Google Cloud Datalab. Some analytics just love the Google ecosystem, while others are better served by a competitor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Cloud Datalab is used for data modeling and analytics.

Although it is pretty straight forward, it occasionally takes a while to find the settings you are looking for. Where you ideally thought it would be, it isn’t.

Data lab is great at compiling information. I was very new to Datalab but was easily able to figure out how it worked. If struggled, the support provided was excellent.

As stated, datalab is really great at providing visuals. Using this has been really easy. Last time I used datalab, I was comparing the income of neighborhoods with trash regulation. It was interesting to see such results from Datalab
