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

Tableau Prep

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.

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

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.

Because Tableau has such a great and active user-base, most real issues that we face with Prep can easily be solved by searching for your issue on Tableau's support site. There is likely someone else out there who has experienced your issue, and so many willing users out there willing to help share their workarounds. I have never had an issue arise to the point that I need urgent support with a live helper, so I cannot speak on that.

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.
