We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The processing of data is very fast.In terms of valuable features, I like the columnar storage that Redshift provides. The storage is one of the key features that we're looking for. Also, the data updates and the latency between the data-refreshes.The product is relatively easy to use because there is no indexing and no partitions.The initial setup of this solution is straightforward.The solution's flexibility is its most valuable feature. It's also easy to scale and has relatively painless pricing.The most valuable features are that it's easy to set up and easy to connect the many tools that connect to it.It allows you write complex queries and perform row by row processes.It allows for the storage of huge amounts of data.

The warehouse is the solution's most valuable feature.The most valuable feature of this solution is the advanced structuring of data capabilities. You can get different structures of data to suit your needs.The key element in this solution is its rapid response. If you have a question about prices, buyers, customers, providers, or services, you need the answer in a minute or two. That's the key benefit for us that a solution like BW gives us.We are currently in a basic stage of analytics and the first goal we have is to make sure the numbers are correct. BW has some features that help you to build factors and ETL in such a way that it's easy to get to correct responses. That's the number one condition that you have to have in an analytic solution.

Cons
It would be useful to have an option where all of the data can be queried at once and then have the result shown.Pricing is one of the things that it could improve. It should be more competitive.The product could be improved by making it more flexible.Running parallel queries results in poor performance and this needs to be improved.The speed of the solution and its portability needs improvement.Compatibility with other products, for example, Microsoft and Google, is a bit difficult because each one of them wants to be isolated with their solutions.In the next release, a pivot function would be a big help. It could save a lot of time creating a query or process to handle operations.Should be made available across zones, like other Multi-AZ solutions.

The solution could offer better connectivity with other databases.The advanced structuring can be complicated and the interface is not very intuitive.One of our requirements is the ability to easily get answers regarding trends and exceptions. In BW, it is not that easy to get such information. I expect better trend and exception detection, better pattern detection.You can start quickly but, when you have to get a little more detailed, when you have to change something, when you have to solve problems, it's not that easy. It's easy to start but evolving is not that easy.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The best part about this solution is the cost.It's around $200 US dollars. There are some data transfer costs but it's minimal, around $20.Per hour pricing is helpful to keep the costs of a pilot down, but long-term retention is expensive.

Overview

Amazon Redshift is a fast and powerful, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud. Customers can start small for just $0.25 per hour with no commitments or upfront costs and scale to a petabyte or more for $1,000 per terabyte per year, less than a tenth of most other data warehousing solutions.

Traditional data warehouses require significant time and resource to administer, especially for large datasets. In addition, the financial cost associated with building, maintaining, and growing self-managed, on-premise data warehouses is very high. Amazon Redshift not only significantly lowers the cost of a data warehouse, but also makes it easy to analyze large amounts of data very quickly.

Amazon Redshift gives you fast querying capabilities over structured data using familiar SQL-based clients and business intelligence (BI) tools using standard ODBC and JDBC connections. Queries are distributed and parallelized across multiple physical resources. You can easily scale an Amazon Redshift data warehouse up or down with a few clicks in the AWS Management Console or with a single API call. Amazon Redshift automatically patches and backs up your data warehouse, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period. Amazon Redshift uses replication and continuous backups to enhance availability and improve data durability and can automatically recover from component and node failures. In addition, Amazon Redshift supports Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), SSL, AES-256 encryption and Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) to protect your data in transit and at rest.

As with all Amazon Web Services, there are no up-front investments required, and you pay only for the resources you use. Amazon Redshift lets you pay as you go. You can even try Amazon Redshift for free.

Reporting, analysis and interpretation of business data are crucial to preserve and enhance the competitive edge of companies by optimizing processes and enabling them to react quickly and in line with market needs. SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) provides tools and functions that enable companies to attain these goals. In SAP BW, you can integrate, transform, and consolidate relevant business information from productive SAP applications and external data sources. SAP BW provides you with a high-performance infrastructure that helps you evaluate and interpret data. Decision makers can make well-founded decisions and identify target-orientated activities on the basis of the analyzed data.
