      Google BigQuery

      One of the most important aspects while working with data warehousing solutions and analytics is the ability to handle large datasets. Google BigQuery is the best in business for that particular aspect. It is ridiculously fast while handling large data sets. Another aspect where it is well suited is the ability to integrate it with data visualization tools like Data Studio. It is fast, easy to use, and very reliable. The only aspect where I feel it is less appropriate where you have to pay more of inefficient scripts and that can hamper the growth of the company a bit.

      Pros

      Google BigQuery

      • BigQuery is ridiculously fast and has the ability to query absurdly large data sets to return results immediately.
      • BigQuery allows for storage of a massive amount of data for relatively low prices.
      • Easy to learn. BiqQuery uses SQL-like queries and is easy to transfer your existing skills to use.

      Cons

      Google BigQuery

      • One issue with Google Cloud Storage is its price. For one to have that premium Google Cloud Storage, for the purpose of massive storage, he/she must have adequate cash. Otherwise, Google Cloud Storage is a safe and perfect online storage platform.
      • The only thing that can come to mind that would be annoying with this software was that sometimes when trying to share files on the Cloud with coworkers, it would just not share at all, or there would be a massive delay in when I shared them and when they received them. Other than that though, everything is perfect with this.

      web UI is easy and convenient. Many RDBMS clients such as aqua data studio, Dbeaver data grid, and others connect. Range of well-documented APIs available. The range of features keeps expanding, increasing similar features to traditional RDBMS such as Oracle and DB2

      I rated the overall support for Google BigQuery as a mediocre five because it has limited support from Google. Instead, it is heavily dependent on an organization's IT resources such as SQL analysts and Data Architects to run big data reports or maintain data quality. Additionally, if errors occur during a run of complex SQL queries or when sending data to Google BigQuery from other sources, Google provides basic email support which needs to be complemented with internal data warehouse support to fix the root cause of the database errors. Finally, due to constraints on the amount of data an analyst can query or pay the additional cost when exceeding the limit, basic Google support is not sufficient to meet data needs without interruption.

      Alternatives Considered

      Google BigQuery

      Spinning up, provisioning, maintaining and debugging a Hadoop solution can be non-trivial, painful. I'm talking about both GCE based or HDInsight clusters. It requires expertise (+ employee hire, costs). With BigQuery if someone has a good SQL knowledge (and maybe a little programming), can already start to test and develop. All of the infrastructure and platform services are taken care of. Google BigQuery is a magnitudes simpler to use than Hadoop, but you have to evaluate the costs. BigQuery billing is dependent on your data size and how much data your query touches.

      None so far. Very satisfied with the transparency on contract terms and pricing model.

      Google Support has kindly provide individual support and consultants to assist with the integration work. In the circumstance where the consultants are not present to support with the work, Google Support Helpline will always be available to answer to the queries without having to wait for more than 3 days.

      Return on Investment

      Google BigQuery

      • Google BigQuery has had enormous impact in terms of ROI to our business, as it has allowed us to ease our dependence on our physical servers, which we pay for monthly from another hosting service. We have been able to run multiple enterprise scale data processing applications with almost no investment
      • Since our business is highly client focused, Google Cloud Platform, and BigQuery specifically, has allowed us to get very granular in how our usage should be attributed to different projects, clients, and teams.
      • Plain and simple, I believe the meager investments that we have made in Google BigQuery have paid themselves back hundreds of times over.
