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."
"This is an established product with powerful data analysis and varied options for user entry points."
"The solution is very stable. We haven't faced any issues with glitches or bugs. We haven't had any crashes."
"If you compare it to SQL, the memory and development times are very quick."
"The technical support is excellent."
"In terms of which features I have found most valuable, I would say the importing and exporting features. Additionally, the data sorting, categorizing and summarizing features, especially how it can summarize based on categories. These are the key features."
"The product offers very good flexibility."
"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."
"Very little needs to improve but perhaps a nicer graphic interface and remaining competetive in the growing field of data analytics."
"The pricing of the solution needs to be improved. They need to work to make it more affordable."
"We find we often have to go back and re-train users when there are changes made to the solution because the changes are not intuitive."
"With SAS Data Management, you have to purchase an external driver, configure all of the tables for all of the data that you will extract from Salesforce. It's not a straightforward process."
"One problem is accessing the data using a solution other than SAS. The SAS data, which we create in the SAS, cannot be accessed by other tools. We can't open those data in other applications. So we need to have that application in place."
"The solution could use better documentation."
"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."
"While it is even free for personal use on the cloud, it can be expensive for desktop installations and enterprise use."
