    One of AWS Glue's most notable features that aid in the creation and transformation of data is its data catalog. Support, scheduling, and the automation of the data schema recognition make it superior to its competitors aside from that. It also integrates perfectly with other AWS tools. The main restriction may be integrated with systems outside of the AWS environment. It functions flawlessly with the current AWS services but not with other goods. Another potential restriction that comes to mind is that glue operates on a spark, which means the engineer needs to be conversant in the language.

    In operations we use the tool for many different topics, from factory quality systems to high level reviews. We have created kind of an internal "App Store" based on Power BI where you have a lot of different dashboards for different solutions (cost, cash, health and safety, sales, factories, distribution centers...) and you as an user just need to get in that "App Store" and enter in whatever tool can be useful for you. It is open to all the operations employees and can use on demand. Also it has raised the imagination of our colleagues, as they are not only working by themselves creating new reports, but also raising fantastic ideas that can be extended for the usage of all the community.

    Pros

    Amazon AWS

    • It is extremely fast, easy, and self-intuitive. Though it is a suite of services, it requires pretty less time to get control over it.
    • As it is a managed service, one need not take care of a lot of underlying details. The identification of data schema, code generation, customization, and orchestration of the different job components allows the developers to focus on the core business problem without worrying about infrastructure issues.
    • It is a pay-as-you-go service. So, there is no need to provide any capacity in advance. So, it makes scheduling much easier.

    • Quickly filter and view granular data sets with easily configurable reporting figures.
    • The ability to quickly switch between tabs allows for historical data comparisons and progress tracking.
    • It's helpful to dive into the data and break it down from high levels to small.
    • Achieve actionable insights faster by using real-time data. It's incredible to have online access to reports.

    Cons

    Amazon AWS

    • In-Stream schema registries feature people can not use this more efficiently
    • in Connections feature they can add more connectors as well
    • The crucial problem with AWS Glue is that it only works with AWS.

    Microsoft

    • The desktop app is great but needs a lot of performance improvements
    • No MacOS Version for the Desktop app, this is a big limitation for business since executives prefer Macs
    • Premium Cloud Version of Power BI is awfully expensive
    • On-Premise Version of the Power BI Reports Server is bundled only with SQL Server Enterprise License and cannot be purchased separately and requires Software Assurance Subscription
    • On-Premise Power BI Report Server doesn't support ADFS, AzureAD or any Claims-Based authentication platform, a sad disadvantage for enterprises

    At this point, I think we all know who has taken the lead in the business intelligence and analytics market worldwide. With fresh new updates every other day on top of an already robustly built product with all features that one can dream of is a no brainer, I feel. Microsoft will invariably be synonymous with quality and professionalism.

    Support Rating

    Amazon AWS

    Amazon responds in good time once the ticket has been generated but needs to generate tickets frequent because very few sample codes are available, and it's not cover all the scenarios.

    I can't really speak to the support overall, [but] I will say that in the almost three years I have used the system, I have only needed to contact their support team once. I think the team was helpful, but it did take some time for us to resolve the issues/ request that they had. I guess the good news is that the system is pretty stable, and I personally have rarely needed to contact their technical support team.

    AWS Glue is a managed service. It was easier for us to integrate it into our stack since we are already an AWS shop. It saved us the headache of managing a 3rd part service.

    [Microsoft] Power BI is practical and effective, like a hammer for a nail, it is easy to use and produces very quickly the results that in most cases are urgently required by clients (nice reports to share on the web). To start using [Microsoft] Power BI you need a business email address, with that you create an account in Power BI Service and in less than 1 hour you will have installed Power BI Desktop, a report will have been created and it will have been published on the web .
