    Clear Analytics

    Clear Analytics has almost all the features which are mostly required by the organizations for their data analytics and transformation activities. Clear Analytics is built on the support of a parallel query engine which makes it handle large volume requests and also provides optimized results. However, every solution has some limitations, Clear Analytics lacks advanced features such as Predictive Analytics which is a very demanding feature in the market as most organizations are adopting AI/ML automation for their businesses. Also, it needs to add a lot of advanced visualizations so that the user has the choice of selection. Overall a good solution to be recommended.

    IBM Analytics Engine

    • Well suited for my big data related project or a static data set analysis especially for uploading huge dataset to the cluster.
    • But had some issues with connecting IoT real-time data and feeding to Power BI. It might be my understanding please take it as a mere comment rather than a suggestion.

    Pros

    Clear Analytics

    • Quick management of the data through Excel thanks to the tools Clear Analytics provides such as filtering different information for an easier view.
    • Ability to add new KPIs to measure different areas of our business.
    • Drag and drop tool which makes an easier usage of Excel.
    • Cost-effective. I find Clear Analytics to be affordable considering the number of features added and the unlimited sharing and editing it provides.

    IBM Analytics Engine

    • Jobs with Spark, Hadoop, or Hive queries are rapidly attained
    • Can collect, organize and analyze your data accurately
    • You can customize, for example, Spark or Hadoop configuration settings, or Python, R, Scala, or Java libraries.

    Cons

    Clear Analytics

    • For Charts and Graphs , getting the Power Point Deck would be helpful. As of now we use the data from Excel Reports
    Salam Mohammed | TrustRadius Reviewer

    IBM Analytics Engine

    • Easier pricing and plug-and-play like you see with AWS and Azure, it would be nice from a budgeting and billing standpoint, as well as better support for the administration.
    • Bundling of the Cloud Object Storage should be included with the Analytics Engine.
    • The inability to add your own Hadoop stack components has made some transfers a little more complex.

    I have had multiple scenarios where I had to reach out to the support team of Clear Analytics, be it access-related, general queries, during initial implementation, etc. My overall experience has always been good. I got the needed support every time without any delay. I can definitely recommend Clear Analytics simply on the basis of its excellent support team.

    Alternatives Considered

    Clear Analytics

    There are other great tools that are out there but Clear Analytics is reasonable for our business and provides a lot of features that we specifically needed
    Johnny Pelter | TrustRadius Reviewer

    IBM Analytics Engine

    We initially wanted to go with Google BigQuery, mainly for the name recognition. However, the pricing and support structure led us to seek alternatives, which pointed us to IBM. Apache Spark was also in the running, but here IBM's domination in the industry made the choice a no-brainer. As previously stated, the support received was not quite what we expected, but was adequate.
