Return on Investment

  • Return on Investments are significant considering what it can do with traditional analysis techniques. But, other alternatives like Apache Spark, Hive being more efficient, it is hard to stick to Apache Pig.
  • It can handle large datasets pretty easily compared to SQL. But, again, alternatives are more efficient.
  • While working on unstructured, decentralized dataset, Pig is highly beneficial, as it is not a complete deviation from SQL, but it does not take you in complexity MapReduce as well.

Return on Investment

  • Higher learning curve than other similar technologies so on-boarding new engineers or change ownership of Apache Pig code tends to be a bit of a headache
  • Once the language is learned and understood it can be relatively straightforward to write simple Pig scripts so development can go relatively quickly with a skilled team
  • As distributed technologies grow and improve, overall Apache Pig feels left in the dust and is more legacy code to support than something to actively develop with.
