Apache Flume

Apache Flume is well suited in small batch and near real time processing projects, taking data from one point to another with local processing (I mean not external enrichment).
Filtering, transforming and multiple push destinations are common grounds for Flume.
It is not so nice to use if your data needs external enrichment (taking data from external databases or web services), as transactions and (micro)batches may lead to reprocessing and it relies upon the application to avoid duplicates.

Hive

I would say the best area where Hive can and should be implemented is in the time and project tracking systems. What I would not use Hive for is invoice tracking or financial information as pertains to the business. Also, using Hive in replacement for an external messaging system similar to Slack is not advisable. The app and the messenger feature are just not there yet.

Cons

Apache Flume

  • Apache Flume develops new functionality at a slower pace than other OpenSource projects, it is well behing Kafka and has some compatibiliy issues with latest releases
  • It lack HA or FT, it relies on third party management software like Hortonworks or Cloudera

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?

Alternatives Considered

Apache Flume

Apache Flume is a very good solution when your project is not very complex at transformation and enrichment, and good if you have an external management suite like Cloudera, Hortonworks, etc. But it is not a real EAI or ETL like AB Initio or Attunity so
you need to know exactly what you want.On the other hand being an opensource project give Apache a lot of room to personalize thanks to its plug-able architecture and has a very nice performance having a very low CPU and Memory footprint, a single server can do the job on many occasions, as opposed to the multi-server architecture of paid products.

Hive

I like Hive better than Trello. Hive is definitely more user-friendly, but Trello had nice shortcuts that I miss in Hive. I would like to organize my board with just one click.

Return on Investment

Apache Flume

  • Flume has simplified a lot many of our ingest procedures, easier to deploy and integrate than a classical EAI, reducing the time to market
  • But opposed to EAIs if the project starts to grow in complexity Apache Flume project may not be as suitable

Hive

  • Positive ROI comes from our whole team being on the same board. We used to have separate boards for each group.
