Apache Pig

- Custom load, store, filter functionalities are needed and writing Java map reduce code is not an option due susceptible to bugs.- Chain multiple MR jobs into one pig job.

SAP Vora

I spent more than 1 year with SAP Vora, SAP Datahub and SAP Leonardo with ML, iOt. I believe this product has potential but it is not easy to adopt. SAP has to keep in mind how open-source big data technologies are able to deliver quick results. I know SAP is stabilizing and fighting hard against many open source technologies, but it still has a long way to go there.

Pros

  • Long logics in Java? Apache Pig is a good alternative.
  • Has a lot of great features including table joins on many databases like DBMS, Hive, Spark-SQL etc.
  • Faster & easy development compared to regular map-reduce jobs.

  • Modelling with SAP HANA and Hadoop
  • Realtime Analysis using Vora and HANA as a Streaming engine
  • Time series Analysis on large chunks of datasets
  • Machine learning capabilities on Hadoop tables and spark contexts

Cons

  • Improve Spark support and compatibility
  • Spark and Hive are already being used main-stream, both of them have an instruction set that is easier to learn and master in a matter of days. While apache pig used to be a great alternative to writing java map reduce, Hive after significant updates is now either equal or better than pig.

  • Vora 2.0 in on premise scenarios could be improved, as adoption of the cloud is not an easy sell.
  • Kubernetes and Docker integration need to be more seamless and quick to understand. If this is simplified, it will be easy to adopt
  • Data hub orchestration and integrations could be simplified so that quick adoption within SAP BW, ECC, S4 HANa scenarios is possible.

Alternatives Considered

I use both Apache Pig and its alternatives like Apache Spark & Apache Hive. Apache Pig was one of the best options in Big Data's initial stages. But now alternatives have taken over the market, rendering Apache Pig behind in the competition. But it is still a better alternative to Map Reduce. It is also a good option for working with unstructured datasets. Moreover, in certain cases, Apache Pig is much faster than Hive & Spark.

We selected SAP VORA because we needed acclerated integration with different sources with a huge amount of data. Also the data de-duplication has easily eliminated the different entries in a fastest and enhanced way, which ultimately leads us and the customer to prefer SAP Vora against different products, and has helped eliminate any limitations in using and playing with our data lake.

Return on Investment

  • Return on Investments are significant considering what it can do with traditional analysis techniques. But, other alternatives like Apache Spark, Hive being more efficient, it is hard to stick to Apache Pig.
  • It can handle large datasets pretty easily compared to SQL. But, again, alternatives are more efficient.
  • While working on unstructured, decentralized dataset, Pig is highly beneficial, as it is not a complete deviation from SQL, but it does not take you in complexity MapReduce as well.

  • Negative impact would be Poc and RFI will need more time to adopt and decision making gets delayed
  • Positive impact would be it's a great leap from SAP to adopt a Big data technologies and AI within cloud stream. But selling is going to take time.
