Azure HDInsight is being used across the whole organization in 3 countries that work together. The solution is that the organization pay for what they use.
  • It's scalable.
  • It's from Microsoft so it's friendly to use.
  • Data is available when you need it.
  • Performance with high volume of data.
If you want to save costs and just pay for what you use, I highly recommend it. It will help you also to work with data for your reports and analytics. on the other hand I think it could be the subscription you have but high volume of data make it slow but not so much. anyway I think it's really good because it's from Microsoft which always is friendly to use it as all the suit they have.
I highly recommend it.

Azure HDInsight is used for managing data processing at TechnipFMC. Being a big company managing the data of thousands of users and customers is always a challenge. We can now access the past data and present data without being dependent on a hard drive or on some other PC.
  • Data is presented without interfering others (IT or other dept).
  • Data is managed properly and is available for retrievable any time.
  • Legacy use of CD/DVD and Pendrive are not required.
  • Sometimes, lower bandwidth faces some issues (Slow speed)
  • Something can be done about lower bandwidth capability as higher bandwidth may not be available at all the places.
  • But improvement will be there in the above capability I am sure as the technology evolves.
Why do you need legacy hard drives and storage and other software to present the data when Azure can manage it efficiently and is always available on-demand?
Overall support is amazing. When we have a problem, IT and local support are able to solve problems faster.

HDInsight is used to help the Sales Department with processing analytics and managing large data. It is utilized by the Advertising and Sales Team and it addresses the problems of overall cost spend in google analytics. We definitely use the powerful query to translate high volume data into Excel in our company. The best thing is the high availability of Microsoft. Azure HDInsight makes it very easy to work with large scale data workloads in Hadoop, and it gives good benefits working on the top of the Azure data lakes.
  • Promote things that needed to be on top.
  • Current analytics changes.
  • As it's from Microsoft, it has high availability and support from Microsoft.
  • Easy transformation of high volume data.
  • Performance issue with large volume data.
  • Cost
For the current purpose, it fits best. Save other costs in analytics and transforming high volume data.
Well suited in advertising and marketing to serve the business purpose and best fit in the transformation of high volume data.

It was used to create and manage Hadoop instance. Extracting undiscovered information from big quantities of unstructured data was easy. The Hadoop cluster was built within minutes.
  • The Hadoop cluster was built within minutes.
  • It is cost-effective to collect and store structured or unstructured data.
  • The flat network storage system technology offers a high-speed connection between nodes and blob storage system.
  • Had issues while using Azure ARM Templates for deployments.
  • The cost structure suited for high end temporary data analytics, rather than a traditional frequently queried data warehouse.
Faster along with Pay for the service you used.

HDInsight is being used with a company I currently consult for. Their marketing department needed help with analytics and managing large files/data and processing it all. It is only being utilized by the advertising and marketing department and it addresses problems that arise when we spend large amounts of money on Google Analytics, Facebook, Instagram, etc., and want to allocate the expenses.
  • Shows live changes in analytics. Shows you how social media is working for us. Since we promote weekly events this is something that we really need to pay attention to.
  • Azure in itself is very user-friendly, HDInsight is a great addition. For our purposes, we definitely also utilized the power query to translate data to Excel.
  • The only problem I have come across is when loading large volumes of data I sometimes get an error message, I assume this means something is corrupt from within. I would love a way for this to be resolved without having to start over.
For my purposes it is well suited, being marketing and advertising.
