More Netezza Analytics Pros »

"Overall the solution is excellent.""The speed of getting data.""The performance is one of the most important features. It has an API to process the data in a functional manner.""It is a stable solution.""Data validation and ease of use are the most valuable features."

More Spark SQL Pros »

"The solution could implement more reporting tools and networking utilities.""The Analytics feature should be simplified.""I'm not sure of IBM's roadmap currently, as the solution is coming up on its end of life."

More Netezza Analytics Cons »

"The solution needs to include graphing capabilities. Including financial charts would help improve everything overall.""Anything to improve the GUI would be helpful.""In the next update, we'd like to see better performance for small points of data. It is possible but there are better tools that are faster and cheaper.""Being a new user, I am not able to find out how to partition it correctly. I probably need more information or knowledge. In other database solutions, you can easily optimize all partitions. I haven't found a quicker way to do that in Spark SQL. It would be good if you don't need a partition here, and the system automatically partitions in the best way. They can also provide more educational resources for new users.""There should be better integration with other solutions."

Spark SQL is a Spark module for structured data processing. Unlike the basic Spark RDD API, the interfaces provided by Spark SQL provide Spark with more information about the structure of both the data and the computation being performed. There are several ways to interact with Spark SQL including SQL and the Dataset API. When computing a result the same execution engine is used, independent of which API/language you are using to express the computation. This unification means that developers can easily switch back and forth between different APIs based on which provides the most natural way to express a given transformation.
