    IBM

    • 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 Analytics

    Mode is a clear category winner for how it easy it is to go from interactive analysis to professional quality reporting. You can easily do all your SQL and quite a bit of R/Python. If you want to quickly go from your database to simple charts, this is your pick. If you need to do heavier data modeling, scheduling jobs, or ML, you'll need something else, like Databricks. In my opinion, the quality of visualizations and some developer/analyst features make Databricks an unacceptable substitute.

    Pros

    IBM

    • Jobs with Spark, Hadoop, or Hive queries are rapidly attained
    • Can collect, organize and analyze your data accurately
    • You can customize, for example, Spark or Hadoop configuration settings, or Python, R, Scala, or Java libraries.

    • It allows for easy sharing and work collaboration on data analysis tasks
    • Mode has an easier to use SQL editor as well

    Cons

    IBM

    • 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.

    Mode Analytics

    • Date ranges aren't always the most intuitive to set, strangely
    • Faster refresh rates would be ideal
    • Would love more dynamic mobile device integration (alerts, etc)

        Alternatives Considered

        IBM

        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.

        Mode Analytics

        We used both Qlik and Mode at our organization. The mode was used a quick analysis SQL tool while Qlik was our enterprise BI solution.
