Datameer Review

It is, in theory, an easier way to engage data on Hadoop than on Hive, but it needs better integration with other enterprise technologies out of the box.


What is most valuable?

It is, in theory, an easier way to engage data on Hadoop than on Hive.

How has it helped my organization?

It hasn’t yet, but we're still working on it.

What needs improvement?

It needs better integration with other enterprise technologies out of the box. We’ve had issues with setup.

For how long have I used the solution?

We’ve had it for a few months, and I’ve maybe spent a few hours with it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability yet.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability yet.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

It's very good.

Technical Support:

It's very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We chose it since it may make data in Hadoop more accessible to more people.

How was the initial setup?

It was a bit complex, and our IT folks can speak to it better than I can.

What about the implementation team?

Both. Give more time then you think to implement it; however, the Datameer guys are great to work with so that helps a lot.

What was our ROI?

No way to measure ROI for us at this time.

What other advice do I have?

Seems to be good for non-developers and for production data jobs.
