Datameer

Without the need for technical subject matter expertise or in-depth technical knowledge, Datameer has enabled me to swiftly convert data and develop insights utilizing data from a variety of sources. Datameer is an ETL software that may be used with little to no knowledge of programming. Users with no technical background may construct transformations and sophisticated SQL logics with a few mouse clicks using the intuitive graphical user interface.

Tableau

If your data sets are coming in without much stewardship then Tableau Prep can help to clean the data before you start trying to create visualizations for your end users. You will save a lot of time this way - rather than seeing problems once you are creating dashboards. If you don't have large data sets or your data is relatively simple, then Tableau Prep may not be needed.

    Datameer

    We have already renewed our Datameer license for year number 2. They have come a long way since their initial release and I am expecting them to be a top BI tool in the coming year. The tool was built by one of the original creators of Hadoop. Therefore fits on top of a Hadoop cluster like a glove

    Tableau

    It works well and is user friendly for the basics but needs more options for bring in data (using SQL queries for example) and export format options.

    I have not really had to reach out for any kind of customer support for Tableau Prep, so I can't really say. However, the support that Tableau has given for their other products has been great, so I would assume it would be the same here. They are also constantly adding new features and providing software updates, and that is always a plus.

    Alternatives Considered

    Datameer

    Based on our findings, we are unable to utilize the Apache Hive platform due to the associated costs. We also looked into Informatica, but decided against it because of its expensive pricing and poor integration with other BI products. Those unfamiliar with SQL may nevertheless use this tool to build complex transformation processes after a brief onboarding session.

    Before Prep, we had to do all the data joining and connecting in a Tableau Workbook. Not only did this cause workbooks connected with live data to run frustratingly slowly, a new connection and set-up had to be established every time a new workbook as created, even if you were working with the same data. The extracts produced by Prep allow several workbooks to be working from the same data set-up without any additional work, saving time and stress.
