I have seen that Cloudera Data Platform is well suited for large batch processes. It works really well for our indication analyses that are performed by the actuaries. I feel that rapid streaming operations may be a situation where additional technology would be needed to provide for a robust solution.

Some scenarios where SAP BW/4HANA is less appropriate [is when] relational queries are needed [and] in some small business with infrastructure limitations. Another scenario that is less appropriate is for ABAP processes requirements.

SAP Max Attention and general support for SAP BW/4HANA is broadly available. Truth to be told, MaxAttention has a premium cost but brings great engineers. So this being an enterprise capability and extremely critical, we did not consider cost as the main factor since support works well. Just keep that in mind when making your selection.

IBM's offering of the Cloud Pak for Data has been a moving target and difficult to compare to Cloudera Data Platform. We have implemented our solution on Amazon Web Services, which appears to be supported by IBM at this point, but the migration would be very expensive for us to endeavor.
