We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is Data Catalogs."
"It allows a lot of traceability and you can decide what data you want to collect"
"Overall, the product works quite well and has a good set of features."
"The most valuable features are data lineage and the concept of a semantic layer."
"The data abstraction is the most valuable feature."
"Access to numerous forums and internet information."
"The performance and the speed to market are the most valuable features of this solution."
"The most valuable feature is the performance. Denodo is very useful, especially in this huge pharma environment. I've found that older SAP solutions were very tightly coupled to each other, which resulted in data restrictions. Getting data from different sources was tough and tedious. Compared to these old solutions, Denodo is very easy to work with for the analytical team. Now that we've implemented this virtualization layer, we are capable of getting the data very smoothly. We implemented a very small unit, but the performance and integration have been very good."
"The most valuable features are data virtualization and reporting."
"We occasionally have some integration issues that we need to work through."
"The integration could use improvement, it's a lot of non-speed line processes that we have discovered, in the country. The configurations could use a lot more improvement."
"Lacks integrations with AWS, GCP and the like."
"The dropdown menus feel antiquated to me, and the administrative portals need improvement."
"The support is not the best and should be improved."
"Documentation needs to be improved"
"The solution should have its own acceleration technology."
"Denodo's training documentation could be improved by providing more material. From an administrative standpoint, I've found that only Denodo websites provide the usual tutorials. It may be because it's a bit of a restricted tool, but it results in trouble with learning. Normally, I can find help and solutions from other sources, but I haven't been able to find any for Denodo. Other that, it's fine and it performs well. I only have six months of experience, so I can't accurately suggest improvements."
"The technical support could be a little better."
"I don't know the actual cost, but it's tens of thousands of dollars per month."
"The licensing should be improved, as the cost per connector is quite expensive."
"I think that this product is too expensive for smaller companies."
