IBM Analytics Engine

  • Well suited for my big data related project or a static data set analysis especially for uploading huge dataset to the cluster.
  • But had some issues with connecting IoT real-time data and feeding to Power BI. It might be my understanding please take it as a mere comment rather than a suggestion.

Kibana

A scenario of great value of Kibana, we found it to use operational intelligence oriented to real-time monitoring of sales and new marketing campaigns, in this way we could make decisions live and not expect subsequent results. On the other hand, the graphic visualization web interface is basic but understandable for what is required.

Cons

IBM Analytics Engine

  • Easier pricing and plug-and-play like you see with AWS and Azure, it would be nice from a budgeting and billing standpoint, as well as better support for the administration.
  • Bundling of the Cloud Object Storage should be included with the Analytics Engine.
  • The inability to add your own Hadoop stack components has made some transfers a little more complex.

Kibana

  • Not really an improvement area, but maybe provide templates to make creating views easier? Since most Kibana users will be non tech people.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Analytics Engine

We initially wanted to go with Google BigQuery, mainly for the name recognition. However, the pricing and support structure led us to seek alternatives, which pointed us to IBM. Apache Spark was also in the running, but here IBM's domination in the industry made the choice a no-brainer. As previously stated, the support received was not quite what we expected, but was adequate.

Kibana

Stackdriver and CloudWatch are not as intuitive and easy-to-use as Kibana, and do not offer such advanced filtering capabilities.Google BigQuery is not really suitable for real-time searches.All-in-all, we used all three of these solutions as a complement to Kibana, either to improve the reliability of the logging infrastructure or for cold storage of logs.
