Apache Sqoop

Sqoop is great for sending data between a JDBC compliant database and a Hadoop environment. Sqoop is built for those who need a few simple CLI options to import a selection of database tables into Hadoop, do large dataset analysis that could not commonly be done with that database system due to resource constraints, then export the results back into that database (or another). Sqoop falls short when there needs to be some extra, customized processing between database extract, and Hadoop loading, in which case Apache Spark's JDBC utilities might be preferred

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

One of the main strengths of Informatica Enterprise Data Integration is its performance. If your business requirements include processing of huge volumes of data, then Informatica is strongly recommended over other tools. I would recommend Informatica over Talend.On the other hand, if your business primarily works on Apple machines, Informatica Enterprise Data Integration is a resounding NO. Running Informatica on a VM or a Remote Desktop completely kills its efficiency.

Pros

Apache Sqoop

  • Provides generalized JDBC extensions to migrate data between most database systems
  • Generates Java classes upon reading database records for use in other code utilizing Hadoop's client libraries
  • Allows for both import and export features

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

  • Informatica is a complex, full-featured data integration tool. We use Informatica primarily to extract data from our ERP systems, transform, and load it into operational and dimensional data stores.

Cons

Apache Sqoop

  • Sqoop2 development seems to have stalled. I have set it up outside of a Cloudera CDH installation, and I actually prefer it's "Sqoop Server" model better than just the CLI client version that is Sqoop1. This works especially well in a microservices environment, where there would be only one place to maintain the JDBC drivers to use for Sqoop.

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

  • It needs additional hardware.
  • Lots of windows sometimes reduce your focus.
  • It would be better to have a more compact design with the ability to aim toward specific topics.

Positives;- Multi User Development Environment- Speed of transformation- Seamless integration between other Informatica products.Negatives;- There should be less windows to maintain developers' focus while using. You probably need 2 big monitors when you start development with Informatica Power Center.- Oracle Analytical functions should be natively used.- E-LT support as well as ETL support.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Sqoop

  • Sqoop comes preinstalled on the major Hadoop vendor distributions as the recommended product to import data from relational databases. The ability to extend it with additional JDBC drivers makes it very flexible for the environment it is installed within.
  • Spark also has a useful JDBC reader, and can manipulate data in more ways than Sqoop, and also upload to many other systems than just Hadoop.
  • Kafka Connect JDBC is more for streaming database updates using tools such as Oracle GoldenGate or Debezium.
  • Streamsets and Apache NiFi both provide a more "flow based programming" approach to graphically laying out connectors between various systems, including JDBC and Hadoop.

Informatica tool is easy to use and easy to maintain, it also performs well, which are the major reasons my company selected it.

Return on Investment

Apache Sqoop

  • When combined with Cloudera's HUE, it can enable non-technical users to easily import relational data into Hadoop.
  • Being able to manipulate large datasets in Hadoop, and them load them into a type of "materialized view" in an external database system has yielded great insights into the Hadoop datalake without continuously running large batch jobs.
  • Sqoop isn't very user-friendly for those uncomfortable with a CLI.

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

  • Positive - Made managing data pipelining much easier, cheaper, and faster.
  • Because Informatica helps automate ETL workflows, it makes the developer's task much easier by reducing the amount of manual work required.
  • Negative - No support on MacOS means that the business needs to use VMs to work on Informatica. This can be very counter-productive.
