Does Pig differ from MapReduce? If yes, how?

Yes, Pig differs from MapReduce because in MapReduce, the group by operation and filter are performed on the reducer side, while the projection is executed in the map phase. Pig Latin has operations like groupby, orderby, and filters that are comparable to MapReduce. To locate the error checking, we may look at the Pig script and data flow. When compared to MapReduce Java code, Pig Latin is less expensive to create and maintain.
