Hadoop

Apache Hadoop (and its subsequent add-ons) are well-suited to larger, unstructured data flows, such as aggregation of web traffic or advertising. Geospatial algorithms and their outputs are well-suited for this kind of aggregation as structuring that data is challenging, but leaving it unstructured and performing queries as-needed is a better fit for most business models. With the advent of data science, I would expect Hadoop fits a LOT of their initial outputs quite well.

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

We need to create/open reports every month. The manual way would be to download data manually from SAP BW and then paste in Excel to start formatting/cleaning. With SAP Analysis Office, we create a report once. Next month when we open it, we just need to change the time frame and refresh the data. It takes 5 mins to open and update data

Pros

Hadoop

  • HDFS is reliable and solid, and in my experience with it, there are very few problems using it
  • Enterprise support from different vendors makes it easier to 'sell' inside an enterprise
  • It provides High Scalability and Redundancy
  • Horizontal scaling and distributed architecture
Bharadwaj (Brad) Chivukula | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • This software is easy to initially learn, and very powerful in producing reusable reports.
  • It is much faster than my company's internal manual queries. The ability to build off of a saved query and share queries to other users is a great positive.
  • My favorite part is that you can run queries in the background and it does not interfere with your current work or slow your computer down.

Cons

Hadoop

  • Hadoop is a batch oriented processing framework, it lacks real time or stream processing.
  • Hadoop's HDFS file system is not a POSIX compliant file system and does not work well with small files, especially smaller than the default block size.
  • Hadoop cannot be used for running interactive jobs or analytics.
Mrugen Deshmukh | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • The installation can be very complex and time-consuming, it requires a lot of planning and foresight as to what role the software will play in the organization.
  • The software has a relatively large learning curve that takes dedicated users months to get comfortable with, the UI is a bit intimidating for new users.
  • SAP could organize their help better, it can be difficult to find dependable solutions to issues via their website and support channels.

Hadoop is organization-independent and can be used for various purposes ranging from archiving to reporting and can make use of economic, commodity hardware. There is also a lot of saving in terms of licensing costs - since most of the Hadoop ecosystem is available as open-source and is free

The institution has decided to move in a different direction, and will be using MSBI for reporting. I have been very happy with the Business Objects suite of tools, and will continue to use them heavily until we make the transition.

Great! Hadoop has an easy to use interface that mimics most other data warehouses. You can access your data via SQL and have it display in a terminal before exporting it to your business intelligence platform of choice. Of course, for smaller data sets, you can also export it to Microsoft Excel.

From a server and client side perspective. the Business Intelligence Platform provides a foundation for all aspects of content development, distribution, analysis, collaboration and self service. Ease of use from targeted content delivery through controlled accessibility. Content exporting in the format of the users choice. Scheduling for internal or external delivery. Public and private folders for secure content access when requied. Web based for viewing on the users device of choice without the need to download additional applications.

When we implemented 3.1, we had a tough time managing the system: It took almost a year to stabilize.

With 4.0, we want to roll out to more users, and are holding back because of fears about the performance issue

Overall, the tool (Web Intelligence 4.2) is fast and solid. One issue is a dependability on JAVA for a full feature report creation/edit capabilities (as opposed to limited HTML option). Second, planned end of JAVA support by major browsers (Chrome is already not supporting JAVA applet).

We went with a third party for support, i.e., consultant. Had we gone with Azure or Cloudera, we would have obtained support directly from the vendor. my rating is more on the third party we selected and doesn't reflect the overall support available for Hadoop. I think we could have done better in our selection process, however, we were trying to use an already approved vendor within our organization. There is plenty of self-help available for Hadoop online.

The overall support package is very good. The online knowledge base provides wealth of information including step by step details on how to resolve known issues on a per release basis. When required software and/or code is included as a download or cut and paste option. It is also highly recommended to have well trained personnel as your system administrators. Do not relay on support alone to resolve all of your issues

Hire specialists and experienced staff. Mix some beginners so that everyone is not a leader but a learner too. Plan well; architect well; break down implementation in small steps and move towards larger steps. Create a centralized and authorized SAP Business Objects implementation team.

Alternatives Considered

Hadoop

Not used any other product than Hadoop and I don't think our company will switch to any other product, as Hadoop is providing excellent results. Our company is growing rapidly, Hadoop helps to keep up our performance and meet customer expectations. We also use HDFS which provides very high bandwidth to support MapReduce workloads.

We selected SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) based on price. It can stack up against others in terms of price and honestly, that's about it. Salesforce Commerce does a hell of a better job at handling it. However, in the space of Business Intelligence, SAP can do more, and that's why at the end we went with it

Return on Investment

Hadoop

  • Hadoop has allowed us to scale out a few of our tier-1, customer facing applications to provide very fast access to reports and analytics.
  • Hadoop was easily implemented by our Linux team and onboarded by our Hadoop Admins.
  • Hadoop has been a very stable platform and only goes down due to server patching or other maintenance.
Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • By generating and distributing reports in a timely manner, we were able to save millions of dollars for the company which otherwise would not have been visible.
  • Almost realtime dashboard, saved the company a huge amount by showing the outages and kept the company from buying a tool to do just that.
  • It showed the customers who were not paying the bills and were missing in the system due to some loophole. This was visible by doing reporting on the theft usage of electricity.
