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.

Mode provides easy and quick reports, specially for specific requests, and the ability to create simple reports and schedules for sharing. It is less suitable as a single BI tool since it's reporting flexibility is limited.

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.

For the advanced user already familiar with Python. It is just the same tool, already managed and connected to the data.

I didn't have to use IT support, so I don't know. But the system is asking me to give a rating. The documentation is good.

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.

Reporting is much more flexible, although database visualization is a bit better there.
