Actian Matrix (discontinued)

Actian matrix is not good for small data sets. If you have a limited data pool, or do not plan on having multiple users/clients accessing a data source, stick with a more traditional relational database model - Access for the truly small user base, or a DB2 or Oracle back end if your going to have multiple users, and moderate sized data. Actian is for LARGE data sets (Big Data, in the industry parlance). Millions of rows of data from multiple sources with various down stream systems accessing the database. It is for data analytics of large data groups and intense data mining.

We used ClicData dashboards in a somewhat unorthodox way: we used "Indicators", or icons within tables to represent data, and the results looked great. The ability to integrate 3rd party HTML into dashboards was valuable (although Clic Data correctly warns that response time may suffer).The ability to start small and release dashboards incrementally suited our needs very well. We also valued the responsive account team getting us quickly pointed in the right direction.

Pros

Actian Matrix (discontinued)

  • Super fast. Aggregate query such as SUM(), Count() returns result within seconds from a table with more than billion records.
  • Excellent data compression.
  • Easy maintenance. We managed this database without having a full time DBA.
  • Support ANSI SQL and ODBC/JDBC. It's easy to connect to this database from other systems.

Cons

Actian Matrix (discontinued)

  • Some of the bugs were annoying and QA definitely needs improvement
  • Connectivity to Informatica and ETL providers
  • Workload management could be better like when you compare with Teradata

ClicData

  • Some of the documentation for their advanced functions is lacking.
  • Getting your data to display in the manner that you expect can sometimes have a workaround you need to jump through.

I wish to give higher rating for the speed and efficiency in handling the queries, but only 6 because of consistent bugs we encounter

It always works, and once you have the hang of it, it's easy to use. Visualizes data, generates reports, and makes my life easier. That's enough for me to recommend it. Be sure to watch some videos and spend time creating custom templates to make your life easier once it's up and running.

We've only needed support a couple times in the beginning as we were learning the system and how to display our data in interesting ways. Every time we reached out we got very detailed responses and were connected to someone that you could tell was very interested in making sure we were happy with how things were going.

Alternatives Considered

Actian Matrix (discontinued)

Actian Matrix is our first big data analytics storage platform, and as I was not involved in the POC process to compare it to other products out on the market, unfortunately I cannot say if it is better than other Big Data storage options. I can say that it out performs products such as Oracle or UDB in regards to the volume of data it can easily index and handle.

We chose ClicData over some other options because it was cost-effective and relatively easy to implement. It didn't require a server to set-up or manage which was nice.

Return on Investment

Actian Matrix (discontinued)

  • ROI is great, less spending on full time DBA and that money could be use to add additional node.
  • Negative - Not many developers are well aware of this tool, it takes some time to learn.

ClicData

  • Better decisions
  • Saves time on reports
  • Easier communication with stakeholders
