2. MapReduce is expecting Java programming language skills whereas in apache pig even a nonjava programming member can write the code using simple scripting.
3. 200 lines of MR code are equal to 10 lines of a pig code.
4. In Map-reduce, we have to follow scripting process something like a compilation of MR code, Executing code, packaging code, and deploy in the cluster whereas, in apache pig, it is very easy to run the code without involving many steps
