Chris AllenTechnical Product Lead at a insurance company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The ability to collaborate and approve business terms for the business glossary data dictionary is excellent."
"From the perspective of a data user, the solution has a great search capability."
"It's not a complicated product."
"The diagram showing the limits is absolutely magnificent."
"I find the metadata feature valuable because it replaces the coding."
"The catalog feature is definitely valuable because it makes ingesting the metadata of any application quite simple. You don't have to do things manually. You can just schedule an import, and it will just refresh the metadata of whatever application you want. That's what I like. I usually work on the technical side, and other than that, I usually create integrations. I integrate Collibra with different environments or applications. I'm a developer, so I cannot vouch for the business, but for me, it is quite developer-friendly with the Java API interface and the REST API interface that they have provided. It is good for creating dashboards based on the needs of each and every role. It can be user-specific or group-specific. We usually create dashboards and give them to our business users, and they are quite happy with that."
"In terms of data governance, as I mentioned, it can be a one-stop solution for all of your data governance needs."
"The customization and the dashboards are pretty good."
"One of the most valuable features is the ability to report on questionable activity."
"The solution works well when used with other Microsoft solutions."
"The stability of the solution is very good."
"The connectors for metadata ingestion need to be improved."
"No easy way to connect to different data sources."
"While connecting with the data source, it's not very easy. If there's a firewall, it is difficult to connect with the database. It's not easy when you are configuring on the database."
"The workflows and the language they use needs to be improved."
"If someone changes the metadata, we can't see who changed it."
"It should have more integrations with things like CyberArk because its main purpose is GDPR implementation. We have to have more scope for things that implement more privacy. CyberArk makes sure your credentials are vaulted and your things are secure when you're creating your integrations or connecting to an application. I do believe that they are working on this feature."
"Recently, I find that the default process of issue management in Collibra is really complex — It wasn't really helpful to us."
"It would be better if there was a way to import all data and metadata in an automatic way in one block form."
"Some of the newer features are not completely there yet... For example, there's a tool that allows you to grade your overall internal security and I don't feel that it's completely accurate."
"It would be ideal if the interface allowed for more granular configurations. For example, if I were to set a rule that is a deviation from the pre-defined rules in the Microsoft product, there's conflict."
"There are occasions where it generates some false positives and you have to embark into figuring it out. You need to find out if it was a true alert or a false positive. It's a little bit cumbersome in that area."
"I am not so much aware of price details. Initially, there was an add-on NuSoft license to use the DVC connector that NuSoft gives to create integrations, but Collibra is now phasing out of it slowly. Collibra is cutting ties with them is what we have been led to believe, and we have started developing on Spring Boot, which is open source."
"I think it is on a yearly basis, but I'm not involved with the pricing session, so I have no idea. There are several licenses for different models. You get one license per product, but a lot of features are controlled separately through different licenses. So, as and when you want to use a feature, you have to procure the license for that feature."
"I think they have a trust issue. I did not like the way they recently went through the process. They were like, "Finish this SOW first, only then will we sign the other SOW." Or, "Finish this code." I didn't like that much."
"I believe we are looking into new licenses. They may be called the E5. Honestly, I don't have it on top of my mind, but I think it's around seven to $10 a user per month."
