Pig Features in Big Data Hadoop
•Rich set of operators − many operators to perform operations like join, sort, filer, etc.
•Ease of programming − Pig Latin is similar to SQL and it is easy to write a Pig script if you are good at SQL.
•Optimization opportunities − The tasks in Apache Pig optimize their execution automatically, so the programmers need to focus only on semantics of the language.
•Extensibility − Using the existing operators, users can develop their own functions to read, process, and write data.
•UDF’s − Pig provides the facility to create User-defined Functions in other programming languages such as Java and invoke or embed them in Pig Scripts.
•Handles all kinds of data − Apache Pig analyzes all kinds of data, both structured as well as unstructured. It stores the results in HDFS.
