Overall Satisfaction with Cloudera Data Platform

We utilize Cloudera Data Platform as our main data warehouse. Implemented as a data lake, our actuaries and business users store and access data from this platform as their primary information repository. It is also a space where actuaries can work with large amounts of data and process that data.
  • Scales
  • Highly available
  • Constantly changing costs
  • Log visibility
  • Reduced operational costs
  • Speed to market
IBM's offering of the Cloud Pak for Data has been a moving target and difficult to compare to Cloudera Data Platform. We have implemented our solution on Amazon Web Services, which appears to be supported by IBM at this point, but the migration would be very expensive for us to endeavor.
We have utilized Cloudera support quite frequently and are very satisfied with the capability and responsiveness of that team. Often, the new features delivered with the platform give us an opportunity to mature the way we're doing things, and the support team have been valuable in developing those new patterns.

I have seen that Cloudera Data Platform is well suited for large batch processes. It works really well for our indication analyses that are performed by the actuaries. I feel that rapid streaming operations may be a situation where additional technology would be needed to provide for a robust solution.
