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

The solution is easy to expand. We haven't seen any issues with it in that sense. We've added 10 servers, and we've added two nodes. We've been expanding since we started using it since we started out so small. Companies that need to scale shouldn't have a problem doing so.The most valuable features are powerful tools for ingestion, as data is in multiple systems.The most valuable feature is the database.It's good for storing historical data and handling analytics on a huge amount of data.The ability to add multiple nodes without any restriction is the solution's most valuable aspect.What comes with the standard setup is what we mostly use, but Ambari is the most important.The best thing about this solution is that it is very powerful and very cheap.The most valuable features are the ability to process the machine data at a high speed, and to add structure to our data so that we can generate relevant analytics.

More SAP IQ Pros »

The solution needs a better tutorial. There are only documents available currently. There's a lot of YouTube videos available. However, in terms of learning, we didn't have great success trying to learn that way. There needs to be better self-paced learning.It would be helpful to have more information on how to best apply this solution to smaller organizations, with less data, and grow the data lake.It would be good to have more advanced analytics tools.The solution could use a better user interface. It needs a more effective GUI in order to create a better user environment.There is a lack of virtualization and presentation layers, so you can't take it and implement it like a radio solution.In the next release, I would like to see Hive more responsive for smaller queries and to reduce the latency.The upgrade path should be improved because it is not as easy as it should be.We would like to have more dynamics in merging this machine data with other internal data to make more meaning out of it.

The Apache Hadoop project develops open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing. The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.

SAP® IQ software delivers speed and power for extreme-scale enterprise data warehousing and analytics. Its column-oriented, grid-based massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture and patented data compression and indexing technologies enable companies to exploit the value of huge amounts of data at the speed of business.
