Likelihood to Recommend

Datawatch Monarch

The product is especially useful when you have real-time and/or time series data to analyze. If you have more mundane, simpler requirements, other products might do the job you need for less money (there are even some decent open source visualization tools you can find.) I know the product is very widely used in capital markets applications to monitor and analyze risk and price and volume changes; if you're working in that area, I don't think there's a better tool to use.

Hadoop

  • Less appropriate for small data sets
  • Works well for scenarios with bulk amount of data. They can surely go for Hadoop file system, having offline applications
  • It's not an instant querying software like SQL; so if your application can wait on the crunching of data, then use it
  • Not for real-time applications

Pros

Datawatch Monarch

  • Creating a basic model to extract data from a report is very easy.
  • Advanced features like Calculated Fields and External Lookups allow you to augment the raw data.
  • You can create a "project" to automate the data extraction. Combined with Datapump (a separate DW app), you can fully automate the process once the raw report is generated.

Hadoop

  • Hadoop is a very cost effective storage solution for businesses’ exploding data sets.
  • Hadoop can store and distribute very large data sets across hundreds of servers that operate, therefore it is a highly scalable storage platform.
  • Hadoop can process terabytes of data in minutes and faster as compared to other data processors.
  • Hadoop File System can store all types of data, structured and unstructured, in nodes across many servers

Cons

Datawatch Monarch

  • Recently, we had some major sticker-shock when we wanted to upgrade Data Pump. It is an exceptional product, but when the price jumped from $6,000 to over $60,000, it was impossible to get the funds approved internally for the upgrade.
  • We also paid for yearly maintenance contracts which included Professional Services, but rarely found those services beneficial. However, we did receive all software upgrades for Datapump as part of the contract which we found to be very beneficial. However, with the new pricing, that is not longer the case.

Hadoop

  • Hadoop is a batch oriented processing framework, it lacks real time or stream processing.
  • Hadoop's HDFS file system is not a POSIX compliant file system and does not work well with small files, especially smaller than the default block size.
  • Hadoop cannot be used for running interactive jobs or analytics.

Even though we do not utilize it on a daily basis, I do hope my current company renews it's license. If not, I intend to purchase myself.

Hadoop is organization-independent and can be used for various purposes ranging from archiving to reporting and can make use of economic, commodity hardware. There is also a lot of saving in terms of licensing costs - since most of the Hadoop ecosystem is available as open-source and is free

I found it really useful during my academic projects. Data handling for large data sets was easy with Hadoop. It used to work really fast for bigger data sets. I found it reliable.

Hadoop support is just average based on our experience. This is one area where it would be nice to see some improvement. Granted, we haven't had many issues with Hadoop that have required support.

Hadoop is a complex topic and best suited for classrom training. Online training are a waste of time and money.

Alternatives Considered

Datawatch Monarch

Datawatch is very good value of money compared to QlikView; QlikView is really more of a BI tool and has a lot of functions that I didn't need. Datawatch is very strong in the real-time area where Tableau, Panorama, and Qlik don't do very well. If you need to set up a visual monitoring dashboard, Datawatch is the best product I've seen for that. if you want to do a lot of in depth statistical analysis of large databases, Tableau is probably a good option.

Hadoop

We considered using Relationship database with Oracle Database and Java applications to process our data but ended up with Hadoop despite it being almost new. However, it proved to be the correct solution, we just need a little time to get started with Hadoop and it allows it to save cost on license and EC2 cost as we configure DataNode to be on-demand or spot instance, it also provides high performance and easy to implement as Map-Reduce function is quite simple.

Return on Investment

Datawatch Monarch

  • Data Pump reduces complexity of report solutions by offering a standardized approach for organizing and scheduling
  • 97% service level for past 5 years for all of our jobs going through Data Pump

Hadoop

  • Hadoop was thought to be cheap, but it is actually a very expensive proposition.
  • Support is required for Hadoop, so it is not free from a support perspective.
  • The overall benefit of Hadoop is extensive scale out storage and processing, but it is difficult to tie it to ROI in a major corporation.
