Why Best-of-Breed is a Better Choice than All-in-One Platforms for Data Science
Interesting view from O’Reilly on why Best-of-Breed trumps All-in-One data science platforms ‼️
From the article: All-in-one platforms built from open-source software make it easy to perform certain workflows, but make it hard to explore and grow beyond those boundaries.
We resonate with this sentiment, especially since data science tools are far and wide, and evolve in a speed faster than the vendor can respond. However, the choice still hinges on the agility of the organisations compared to the vendors’. If the organisation is happy to lag behind the bleeding-edge and has little customisation requirements, then buying is always better than building.
