Cloudera Manager

It would be suited for customers who feel more comfortable with using a GUI. It is less appropriate for developers or engineers who are comfortable with command line

Informatica MDM

If your environment is clean and well organized, but at the same time has many application domains with their own data sources, Informatica MDM can be a really good factor in maintaining "single points of truth" for all this data. However, the more application domains you have, the less "clean" your environment becomes. If your application domain landscape consists of multiple technologies (C#, Oracle, JAVA, web-based, windows services, console apps, third-party tools, etc), your environment becomes a real nightmare to maintain unless you implement a service-oriented approach. And this is where Informatica MDM fails completely since it promotes a "point to point" scenario. At least this is my experience. It could be that Informatica MDM supports a service-oriented approach, but I have not seen this. I could be that the developers in my organization who have expert Informatica MDM knowledge are just more "point to point" oriented. But even if that is the case, it's a valid argument against Informatica MDM, since it's already hard enough to find developers who are dedicated to this product, it becomes impossible to find SOA oriented developers.

Cons

Cloudera Manager

  • Cloudera Manager needs to be more agile with integrating other applications, such as Accumulo 1.7, to their software.
  • Cloudera Manager can do a better job at explaining why a node fails to add to a cluster using their assistant.
  • Cloudera Manager should show graphs only when there is data, instead of showing just an empty box.
Ethan Tran | TrustRadius Reviewer

Informatica MDM

  • Mapping within the tool can be difficult. But that is slated for upgrade with the next version.
  • Many detailed screens for the developer interface. This makes it hard to find options sometimes.
  • Address validation sometimes leads to incorrect results. This is my biggest issue with the product.

I'm not sure since I never used support. My colleagues never had any issues with it, therefore my rating would be an 8 with a certain range of uncertainty.

Alternatives Considered

Cloudera Manager

I have not used any competitors, such as Hortonworks, because Cloudera Manager just works and meets all my customer's needs. I only have deployed Hadoop using command line, which is not easy to use and manage.

Informatica MDM

Less expensive then the competitors, modules are self-sustained and able to function directly. It involves less coding, and a lot of things can be done in house!
