Amazon EMR

Amazon Elastic MapReduce is useful in cases where two conditions are met. First, that you are planning on using multiple big data tools simultaneously to analyze big data sets. And second, that you need a tool that simplifies managing big data tools. If these two conditions are met, MapReduce does a great job. The user interface is simple. The program eliminates some programming requirements. The software also makes setting up big data analyses much easier. With these benefits acknowledged, MapReduce is not a good tool for "small" data analyses, given that there are other tools that do the job quicker and much more professional output. If you're on the fence, try out MapReduce with competing "small" data tools and see if you really need big data software.

Hive

Hive is very well suited for those looking for a team communication app that has Kanban board support and you don't want to use two different apps for project management and communication. It fails a little bit when some of your team members or bosses don't have much time to read all emails, so we still haven't found a way for them to get only important notification emails.

Hive

  • Organizing tasks by assignees could be better. It's a little cumbersome to check off each person you want. Can you group these?
  • I don't really use any view besides task view. Is there something better I could be using?
  • It would be nice if attachments showed up in a nicer format, maybe with a preview?

I love Hive so much because it has made a huge difference regarding team communication and project management at the same time. We experienced almost no bugs and in the few cases that we did have some trouble, the customer service team was very responsive and solved our problems very quickly.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon EMR

Having one of these enterprise edition license comes at its own costs. But, the flexibility to have the cluster spin up with the workbenches and code snippets on the same is really beneficial. Especially, if one had to move out of EMR and consider an option which reduces the debugging time in establishing connections to AWS resources, I would love to used the mentioned three resources on EC2. This would definitely make the processing time to reduce as there is a flexibility to test real time and execute the code snippet and look at the performance and monitor the snippet in real time.

Return on Investment

Amazon EMR

  • Positive: Helped process the jobs amazingly fast.
  • Positive: Did not have to spend much time to learn the system, therefore, saving valuable research time.
  • Negative: Not flexible for some scenarios, like when some plugins are required, or when the project has to be moved in-house.
