Software work execution is on a large scale, it is good to use for new projects or organizational changes, data lineage mapping has always been dubious but this one has had good results. You can store and synchronize data from different departments, the storage process can be manual but it is best automated.

Apache
  • Some queries, particularly complex joins, are still quite slow and can take hours
  • Previous jobs and queries are not stored sometimes
  • Switching to Impala can sometimes be time-consuming (i.e. the system hangs, or is slow to respond).
  • Sometimes, directories and tables don't load properly which causes confusion

  • More tech support may make it easier as it is only limited to be done via company representatives
  • Overhead cost for replacements and services looks like it is high compared to others
  • Integration with other cloud based application will be great

Usability
Apache
Hive is a very good big data analysis and ad-hoc query platform, which supports scaling also. The BI processes can be easily integrated with Hadoop via the Hive. It can deal with a much larger data set that traditional RDBMS can not. It is a "must-have" component of the big data domain.

Support Rating
Apache
Apache Hive is a FOSS project and its open source. We need not definitely comment on anything about the support of open source and its developer community. But, it has got tremendous developer support, awesome documentation. I would justify the fact that much support can be gathered from the community backup.

Besides Hive, I have used Google BigQuery, which is costly but have very high computation speed. Amazon Redshift is the another product, I used in my recent organisation. Both Redshift and BigQuery are managed solution whereas Hive needs to be managed

Netezza is sufficient against similar products. It comes down to personal preference, I'd love to have the data objects popping up as I type but some people may not like it.
