Hive Software


 

Hive is a cloud-based project management solution designed for teams of all sizes who need to share files, chat and automate task management. It includes workflow templates, group messaging, multiple task views and over 100 app integrations.

Hive allows users to create and organize tasks for themselves and their teammates, with task deadlines, attachments and labels. The Kanban-style status view lets users track project progress and change deadlines and workloads, and project tasks can be planned in the Gantt chart.

Files stored in Box, Dropbox and Google Drive can be accessed in a single page, and users can attach files to actions or drag and drop them into messages to share them with team members.

Hive includes action templates which enable the automatic assignment of recurring tasks. Users can select which task to assign, who to assign it to and the completion deadline.

Hive is enabling us as a Company to improve employee engagement. I would highly recommend Hive.

Pros

Ease of use, anonymity
Great reporting facility
High fives are a great way to show appreciation to your colleagues

Cons

I would like to see more surveys/features added, but I know this will happen in due course.
The Platform is still quite new so finding it's feet.

Events are gathered in HDFS by flume and needs to be processed into parquet files for fast querying. The input data contains variable attributes in the json payload as each customer could define custom attributes.

It is part of the ETL pipeline, where hive jobs read json data and generates parquet files that would be queried using impala/spark. Using views, each customer queries only the relevant data

Pros

The syntax of hive! Its almost SQL so its easy to use.
External tables, partitions, buckets, UDFs all the features I like to use with hive. ORC data format occupying lesser space and retrieving the data much faster.
The Hive is intended to simplify your experience with Hadoop and allows developers and business analyst apply their SQL knowledge to query data, build reports, build etl etc.
To be able to run map reduce jobs using json parsing and generate dynamic partitions in parquet file format.



Cons

Hive is comparatively slower than its competitors. Its easy to use but that comes with the cost of processing, If you are using it just for batch processing then hive is well and fine. It also does not have as rich of a scripting language.

Pros

It's really customizable. You can view the same project in a lot of different ways. It also great that you have a bunch of separate projects, but can view them all together with summary view. There are just so many options that it really fits the needs of my whole team.

Cons

I wish there were more integrations, but I think they are working on adding more. Also, I would love if they could add time tracking, but besides that there isn't too much I dislike. I had some trouble figuring out the new forms feature, but the customer support team was really helpful in getting that resolved.

This software is really cool if you want to automate things in your house such as your heating and lighting where you can use sensors for when you walk into your house they will turn the lights on automatically. The app they offer is really easy to use and very straight forward. The downside is that sometimes it lags so if a sensor goes off it does not turn the lights on right away. In summary, the idea is really good and the execution is good but the reliability needs to be worked on as it does not always work.

Pros

Good design idea and easy to use

Cons

Not very reliable yet as it sometimes fails to work as expected, looks like they have some bugs to sort out

This is a intuitive and fun to use project management software.

Pros

I really like this software. It integrates some different ideas that are helpful. Such as using a Status View, Team View, Calendar View, Label View, or Gantt view when setting up a project. It also has a great platform for collaboration. I also like the mobile app!

Cons

I think it would be helpful to have a rick management area for this software. Or at minimum an issue tracking area for project risks.

Pros

(1) Since it is based on sql query syntax, it is really easy to adopt to hive, which I could do within a few days. (2) I like the performance benefits it gives in scenarios where complex joins are to be performed on huge tables (3) It is fault tolerant

Cons

Hive could be much more faster if in-memory join support was there. But then it would also compromise on the fault tolerance part.

It has everything your project team could possibly need, all in one place! It makes it really easy to chat about a task and complete it at the same time. i loved being able to copy an email and the email show up as a task in the specific project.

Cons

There is nothing imensely wrong with this product, it just wasnt the right fit for my team. With that said, it had every feature my team was using and it was all in one place. i was certian this would be perfect for us. In the end hive ended up being too difficult to integrate into my teams normal day to day. Because of that we had to let it go.

Better communication and an easier time knowing where others are at on projects.

Pros

It's pretty simple to use for the most part. It's nice to be able to create teams based around projects and see where everyone is at. It's easy to see what tasks you have and assign a date for completion.

Cons

Can be a little unintuitive at times, for instance, where you need to click a certain area to add people to a project took a bit to figure out. People will often make the mistake of adding the whole office to a project or task as well.

Hive brings our entire team into one collaborative workspace, allowing us to replace most emails with chat & task management. Samepage.io is also worth reviewing - haven't tried it but seems to also have a strong feature set at a similar or lower price, and includes video chat.

Pros

* Ability to view work by project, but team members all in one view, and then filter tasks to everything assigned to me across multiple projects
* Chat
* Responsiveness of customer service team via in app Intercom

Cons

* Threaded chat would be nice. This was recently added to Slack, but Workplace by Facebook does it even better
* Filter out actions that have not hit their start date yet, AND tasks that have an unmet dependency. Goal is to focus attention toward work which can be done now, and minimize extra human manual filtering.
* Needs FILTER BY DATE COMPLETED: We're most interested in seeing this available on the "My team" view, but could also make sense elsewhere. While we can filter status view by assignees, projects and status complete, just need this additional ability
* Should be a way to AUTOMATICALLY MOVE URGENT ACTIONS TO TOP: Automatically sort tasks marked "urgent" to top of each respective status list when "Sort Type" "Sort by Priority" has been selected in the project navigator so users don't have to hunt them down and pull them up.
