    Hadoop

    Altogether, I want to say that Apache Hadoop is well-suited to a larger and unstructured data flow like an aggregation of web traffic or even advertising. I think Apache Hadoop is great when you literally have petabytes of data that need to be stored and processed on an ongoing basis. Also, I would recommend that the software should be supplemented with a faster and interactive database for a better querying service. Lastly, it's very cost-effective so it is good to give it a shot before coming to any conclusion.

    I believe Sisense is perfectly suited for any organization of any size that have access to the proper resources, as the tool is very expensive. The data connectors come in all shapes and sizes out of the box, which allows a great deal of data control within the ElastiCubes. Additionally, while the platform only runs on Windows platforms, the web application can be accessed on any client: mobile, Apple, Windows, etc. This allows a much more flexible user experience, resulting in data and dashboards reaching further than any other tool.

    Pros

    Hadoop

    • Handles large amounts of unstructured data well, for business level purposes
    • Is a good catchall because of this design, i.e. what does not fit into our vertical tables fits here.
    • Decent for large ETL pipelines and logging free-for-alls because of this, also.
    Joe Hughes | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Sisense

    • Customization - lots of supported and community plugins available. Users can also adjust the look and feel through JavaScript.
    • Innovation - Sisense is continuing to push the envelope by developing new features through Sisense Labs.
    • Customer support - the commitment to excellent customer service and ensuring organizations get the most out of their investment.
    Andrew Goss | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Hadoop

    • Less organizational support system. Bugs need to be fixed and outside help take a long time to push updates
    • Not for small data sets
    • Data security needs to be ramped up
    • Failure in NameNode has no replication which takes a lot of time to recover
    Bharadwaj (Brad) Chivukula | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Sisense

    • The usability of the application on mobile devices needs some improvement, especially navigation and filtering.
    • Dashboards that are created by multiple users can be a bit of a hassle to share by Admins.
    • If you need to embed dashboards into your website, you are require to buy a license separate from the user and platform license. This is a norm on most BI visualization tools, but Sisense can seem a bit on the high side, cost-wide.

    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

    I think the business and myself as a user has come to rely on SiSense as a dashboarding and quick ad-hoc reporting tool. I am hoping to integrate SiSense dashboards into more parts of the business in the future. We have reduced our report turn-around time for the most part from hours/days to minutes and in some cases almost the speed of thought. Reports are also easier on the eye and more easily distributed.I would also like to say that the support and professionalism from the SiSense team has been excellent.

    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.

    New V5 is ground floor of an exciting collection of possibilities. Weekly Sisense developers come up with new functionality that they share with us in their forums. The move to HTML5 has been pleasing in that widgets auto size themselves into appropriate forms in the board but everyone of them can be popped out to full page size to be looked at in more detail

    SiSense is usually performing better then other solutions even if going for complex reports/dashboards(of course within reasonable frames). I haven't noticed any bad influence on other systems, usually if something happens it stays within SiSense.

    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.

    SiSense's support ninjas are very knowledgeable and are exceptionally responsive. So far, all of the issues we ran into were resolved within minimum time. My sense of dealing with the support staff at SiSense is that they are very focused on not just answering your immediate question, but also to delve into the cause of the matter.

    Easy and free training that allowed us quickly understand basics in SiSense and start using them. More advanced features requires some browsing through SiSense forums, but there is always support to help, and SiSense support is one of the best whith which I worked so far.

    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.

    1) Easy to use, really, there is nothing too much to say. The set up is easy and not confusing. You can use it internally or externally.
    2) Customer Service, having spoken to various product reps from similar industry. Sisense rep provides you with the best support to get started, and it is really appreciated.

    Return on Investment

    Hadoop

    • There are many advantages of Hadoop as first it has made the management and processing of extremely colossal data very easy and has simplified the lives of so many people including me.
    • Hadoop is quite interesting due to its new and improved features plus innovative functions.
    Chantel Moreno | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Sisense

    • Report development time is reduced from 2~3 days to 2~3 hours.
    • Report querying time is improved from 0.5~10 mins to 2~30 seconds.
    • A 2-staff team delivers 10 times the BI output that we did on the old system.
    • We were able to deliver BI and data analysis for all business functions instead of a very limited group of users
