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.

  • Well suited for my big data related project or a static data set analysis especially for uploading huge dataset to the cluster.
  • But had some issues with connecting IoT real-time data and feeding to Power BI. It might be my understanding please take it as a mere comment rather than a suggestion.

Alternatives Considered

Perhaps the biggest advantage Amazon Elastic MapReduce has over competing big data management software is the user base. Elastic MapReduce, compliments of its connection with Amazon, has a large user base to whom questions about functionality can be addressed. The software also has a very nice user interface. Additionally, Elastic MapReduce runs fairly quickly and the results are generally easier to manipulate. With this said, Elastic MapReduce is definitely not the easiest nor quickest tool for big data analytics.

  • Increasing learning success. My class and I were able to practice real tools
