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

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.
Read full review Pros It leverages scalability, flexibility and cost-effectiveness of hadoop to deliver an end-user focused analytic platform for big data without involvement of IT. It overcomes Hadoop`s complexity by providing GUI interface with pre-built functions across integration, analytics and data visualization . Excel feature is awesome for business users which is already provided by Datameer. Using datameer now user can do smart analytic using Decision Trees, Column dependency and recommendation. Recently HTML5 inclusion is making application to available on a wider range of devices, including the iPad and other mobile devices which does not support Flash. It can be used in premise or in a cloud computing environment. Wizard-based data integration designed for IT and business users to schedule and do transformation of large sets of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data without any knowledge of Hadoop ecosystem. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons Concentration issues are possible while using a lot of tabs at once. In most cases, the length of a tutorial video is excessive. A more condensed design is certainly a viable option. Read full review 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 Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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

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.

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.

Pricing, support, and ease of use. We plan to scale up our data over the net few years and Datameer gives us all the things we need in one tool. Handles large transformations quickly and works with all the cloud data warehouses.
Datameer's per-user pricing sealed the deal for us as we plan to transfer much more data over the next few years. We looked at
but the usage pricing discourages growth. We also looked at Informatica but it was too expensive and didn't work as well with other BI tools like Datameer does.

[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 .
Read full review Return on Investment We have not been able to reach our business objectives just yet. Hadoop its a hard sell in most companies still. Legacy skills are still highly on demand and as long as an easier path leverage SQL for example is available, it would be hard to gain more adoption. Read full review It helps us track and achieve company goals. It shows us [our] performance in areas we could not previously track and allows us to see and work on how to improve their performance. Quick easy access for executives to use in helping teams and addressing issues. Read full review ScreenShots
