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 HANA

SAP HANA is best suited for applications and analytics since it provides quick and reliable data management and extraction. Although SAP HANA is extremely useful and proven by its sophisticated and fast algorithms, it does take a significant amount of time and a great depth of knowledge to implement it.

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

SAP HANA

  • Multi Store Tables - allowing to store data in default store and extended store as per data ageing.
  • In Production Environment it allows same host deployments (Hana host + Dynamic Tiering). No need to have separate dedicated server for each of them.
  • Incremental and differential backups - Reducing backup times and storage requirements.

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.

SAP HANA

  • Support - hard to find resources online so you are often dealing with an issue for a while.
  • UI could be more intuative, takes a while to get use to or train users.
  • Using a couple of models can make it not respond effectively.
  • Doesn't support text data type.

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

At this moment we are not focusing on SAP, however would love to in the future. This is primarily because of our limited ability to generate more revenue to fund for SAP partnerships and products. Our initial tryst with SAP Partneredge open ecosystem didn't go as planned and we have shelved that for now. Hope we can revive in the future

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.

In addition to the points described in the previous parts of the review, I believe that as I gain more experience with the product over time, I will be able to better describe my experience with this tool. Meanwhile, I can confirm that the possibilities presented to my organization by the change to SAP HANA, at the moment, have been very important to evolve the analytical and strategic field towards a new path.

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.

SAP HANA is stable product now. However, we would be interested an even better and clearly defined roadmap. In terms of availability of technical resources with enough expertise to handle complex business challenges, SAP needs to take up the initiative of enabling partners and larger community. Better awareness around best practice content and tighter integration between SIs and product vendor is required.

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.

[Despite] of the high operational costs involved I can vouch for the fact the new [SAP] HANA cloud solution is by far worth it as they have included a significant amount of machine learning features, introduced a new computational algorithm a more improved ui and also the general security and robust performance on offer.

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.

SAP HANA

  • The [strategies] and the time consumed on migrating to HANA was time [consuming] and costly during the initial phases of the project.
  • The time and resources utilized to set up the infra plan from requirements to production was huge.
  • But once we were getting into cadence of utilizing the open architecture of HANA we were able to utilize its features that helped us to leverage.
  • Again I would say that overall for us HANA [has] proved to be worth spending for as it helped us achieve our business's objectives.
