Datameer

Datameer is a great tool if someone is capable of keeping the most recent version of the tool up to date along with the most recent version of the distribution of Hadoop. The tool is easy to support but it must have someone who can run the back end processes

Information Server is extremely useful to replace manual developments that require a lot of coding effort. It significantly increases the productivity of the initial development and the future maintenance of the processes since it has a visual development environment with self-documentation.

Cons

Datameer

  • I would be nice to have a new web development environment for DataStage.
  • Connectivity Packs such as Pack for SAP Application are a little pricey.
  • It is confusing for new developers the possibility of developing jobs using different execution engines such as Parallel or Server.

Employees with intermediate SQL and Hive knowledge can generate reports faster than using Datameer . It does have visualization tool but I don't think it is anything that cannot be accomplished by importing the data in Excel

Information does load quick, but it depends on what's being done, the backend database seems to be the biggest bottleneck

Alternatives Considered

Datameer

Not sure how to compare Datameer with other products, it has a flavor of Excel and PowerPivot, it leverages D3.js and HTML5 for visualizations. The modeling capabilities are one of its strongest aspects. We've been looking at Tableau, Qlikview, Microstrategy, Cognos Insight, and SAP Lumira.

DataStage is more robust and stable than ODIThe ability to perform complex transformations or implement business rules is much more developed in DS

Return on Investment

Datameer

  • Datameer definitely helped to increase employee efficiency, provide quick results for our data analytic teams.
  • Quick data injection and data partitions allowed quick data scans.
  • Integration with the Java sdk allowed us to reuse existing Java code.

InfoSphere

  • If you don't use all of the product family, it will be expensive. But if you want to plan use all the products and you will position it in the center of your infrastructure ROI will be effective.
