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.

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.

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.

Oracle Synopsis

  • It does not allow to open the same transaction screen from multiple computers. Therefore it becomes time-consuming unlike other software that allows you to work on more than one ledger at a time
  • it has no backup in case your system crash or some mishap takes place. Therefore you have to separately back up your data which gives birth to extra work.
