    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
    Ryan Baltes | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power BI

    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.

    Pros

    Datameer

    • 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.

    Microsoft Power BI

    • 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.
    Afia Tamanna | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Datameer

    • Many tabs sometimes reduce your focus
    • Might be better to have a more compact design
    • Video tutorials are a little long
    Abhinav Patel | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power BI

    • 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

    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.

    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.

    Microsoft Power BI

    [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 .

    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.
    Serge Blazhievsky | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power BI

    • 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.
