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."
"The product is at the forefront of auto-remediation networking. It's great."
"This is a good security product."
"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."
"Currently, a lot of network operations need improvement. We still need people to handle incidents. Our vision is to leverage status and convert it directly from the network devices. It would be ideal if we could take action using APIs and API code and remove manual processes."
"The price of Splunk UBA is too high."
"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 would say it's probably in line with what other vendors charge for licensing."
"It is substantial, and we do pay yearly."
