"Hive Datawarehouse"
What do you like best about Hive?
Hive is the best Datawarehouse and open source. Easy to use. It has a query language HiveQL. The syntax is same as SQL. So it is easy to write the hive queries and easy to get reports and business insights. Best Olfor analytics. And easily integrated with Spark, Hadoop and cloud also.
What do you dislike about Hive?
Higher latency is the drawback. Developments should be made to improve the latency of the complex queries.
What problems is Hive solving and how is that benefiting you?
Helping us to get business insights and reporting. Helping us to analyse the data and draw some conclusions to improve the business.

"Best Data Wharehouse tool for huge volume of structured data"
What do you like best about Hive?
Best thing about Hive is it alows us to write the code in sql for processing and managing the data. It allows us to partition and distribut the data among the cluster machines. We can also choose execution engine like spark, tez,mapredice while rinning in hive. If you your processing and analysing the bulk volume of batch data then hive is best.
What do you dislike about Hive?
It supports only structure data and we can't do updates too. Only supports OLAP.
What problems is Hive solving and how is that benefiting you?
We are managing our data warehouse for analytical purpose using hive. We used to partition and cluster the tables for better parallel processing and less shuffling so the processing will be optimised. We used to read the hive tables with spark too for better computation and speed.

"Hive is easy to scale."
What do you like best about Hive?
Hive is one of the Apache projects. it is a data warehouse software which facilitates querying and managing large datasets residing in distributed storage. It provides a way to enable easy data extract/transform/load (ETL) Some of the nice features include (1) a simple SQL-like query language, called HiveQL, that enables users familiar with SQL to query the data. But it is a bit different from SQL standard. For example, HiveQL can also be extended with custom scalar functions (UDF's), aggregations (UDAF's), and table functions (UDTF's). (2) You can define your own read or written data format called Hive SerDe. (3) Hive can be run on Hadoop and HDFS. It has very good scalability. Personally speaking, I use hive mainly for ad hoc quires and reports. For BI reports Hive is the best since you can reuse all the SQL that you have done for traditional data warehouses. Also with Hive Server2 you get a real JDBC support so you can plug your BI tools to it. Many more SQL features like cubes, rollups, windowing, lag, lead, etc are being added to Hive through Hortonworks Stinger initiative. Hive also produces very compact code, which is always good for reading and debugging.
What do you dislike about Hive?
Too large code base. It is hard to maintain and support. And, there are too many configurations. If you take a look at the HiveConf.java, you will be confused with so many configurations there. It is easy to get lost when you configure them. And, if you configure some of them in a wrong way, you may suffer from bad query performance.
What problems is Hive solving and how is that benefiting you?
We are developing Hive. Hive is part of our product

"Robust app intended to reflect how you work day to day"
What do you like best about Hive?
Its exhilarating how well it seamlessly connects work, through its group messaging that spurs collaboration, its flexible project layouts, customer insights and reviews that help in strategy.
What do you dislike about Hive?
One thing to note is that its heavy on consumption and it requires enough ram to slow some integrated apps down. That's an issue that needs solving.
What problems is Hive solving and how is that benefiting you?
Its been using data analysis of the workflows to expose how work is actually being done, what's needed to optimize operations, how to schedule, allocate and much more. Its been a great help at getting everyone performing and moving as per timelines and objectives.

"Hive - For all the big data needs"
What do you like best about Hive?
Hive is a very valuable tool as it provides wrappers for data analysis and querying on Big data for organizations with huge amounts of data to be processed. It is built on top of Hadoop and makes SQL query building and storing quite convenient!
What do you dislike about Hive?
The biggest disadvantage of using Hive is that it does not provide or offer real-time queries and especially for row level updates as the latency is quite high in Hive.
What problems is Hive solving and how is that benefiting you?
Hive solves the problem of big data processing and analysis for me and my company. We are able to process and analyze huge amounts of data with the help of capabilities provided by Hive. It also allows parallel processing which makes it quite fast to use.

"Good data distribution"
What do you like best about Hive?
The data distribution and data processing in hive is very good in hive. DDL and DML functions in hive are better than conventional sql databases. Hive is better known for fault resistance.
What do you dislike about Hive?
The data output on hive is very slow. The data processing is very slow and the output is delayed due to this slow processing. Also the syntax is bit complex than conventional sql language.
What problems is Hive solving and how is that benefiting you?
Fault tolerance is very good feature which helps in data storing. Incase one database is lost, there isna backup created and this database can retrieved easily and intact.

"O Hive torna a consulta no HDFS muito mais fácil, mas não otimizada nem rápida o suficiente"
What do you like best about Hive?
Caso contrário, se você escrevê-lo como um SQL normal, pode levar horas para processar Mas é um pouco diferente do padrão SQL Pessoalmente falando, eu uso hive principalmente para ad hoc quires e relatórios é um software de armazenamento de dados que facilita a consulta e gerenciamento de grandes conjuntos de dados residindo em armazenamento distribuído
What do you dislike about Hive?
O ajuste de desempenho é difícil e torna-se difícil para consultas complexas, ele ainda tem alguns bugs, como todos os dados que vão para um único redutor, o que pode levar a retardar os resultados da consulta. -> Algumas das operações SQL não funcionam na colméia, como as associações de não igualdade, os dados não podem ser atualizados, mas teremos que reescrever
What problems is Hive solving and how is that benefiting you?
Estamos desenvolvendo o Hive Para pessoas que estão acostumadas a escrever consultas SQL, seria muito bom usar o Hive em cima do hadoop para arquivos armazenados no HDFS. Atividade do Dumping Site Dados de streaming de Big Data, bem como logs de dados no Hive Estamos desenvolvendo o Hive
