If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Amazon EMR, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

We have a range of clients in addition to the client with the large database of addresses. Another client is a large blockchain company and we do analytics for them, using Bare Metal and Hadoop, but not EMR. We're also doing Spark Streaming, Spark SQL, and some queries with Impala. We also have a company that enriches data from mobile companies, in terms of GAL locations of cell phones, with a variety of data from other sources to predict profitability. I rate Amazon EMR an eight out of ten. It's continuously improving, and now it's possible to manage EMR directly from SageMaker Notebook. It's continuously evolving. I would recommend EMR to others because it's pretty straightforward, so onboarding doesn't take much time.
