What is most valuable?

I like the connectivity of the solution. We are able to put in large sets of data and are able to share that with a small query. We can then offer others access. The solution allows you to create your own cube, particularly in a shared… more »

What needs improvement?

Data cleansing is not intuitive and user-friendly. When things have errors, you have to hunt them down as opposed to the solution simply showing you intuitively where to find it. I would recommend that they look at that Tableau Prep tool… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not familiar with the cost of licensing, but I know that their basic model is probably free, and it covers 90% of any novice's needs. The license packages have, from my experience, just a few more bells and whistles, particularly when… more »

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

We had a combination of Tableau with Naim as the back-end to clean the data and then we also used Cloudera to transact between systems. This setup required a lot of human resources and knowhow and even with all that, it was mostly… more »

What other advice do I have?

What needs improvement?

I think for IT people it is good. The whole idea is that Spark works pretty easily, but a lot of people, including me, struggle to set things up properly. I like contributions and if you want to connect Spark with Hadoop its not a big… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I would suggest not to try to do everything at once. Identify the area where you want to solve the problem, start small and expand it incrementally, slowly expand your vision. For example, if I have a problem where I need to do streaming… more »

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

I have used MapReduce from Hadoop previously. Otherwise, I haven't used any other big data infrastructure. In my work previously, not in this company, I was working with some big data, but I was extracting using a single-core off my PC. I… more »

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd put it at an eight. To make it a perfect 10 I'd like to see an improved configuration bot. Sometimes it is a nightmare on Linux trying to figure out what happened on the configuration and back-end. So I think… more »
