We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is a go-to tool for data virtualization. The virtualization and data catalog are the features of why we chose Denodo.""The data abstraction is the most valuable feature.""The performance and the speed to market are the most valuable features of this solution.""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 feature is Data Catalogs."

More Denodo Pros »

"The most valuable features are the dynamic reading of the file metadata profile, and the ability to define business rules that are used to verify and validate the uploaded files.""Technical support is great. It's one of the reasons we really like them. When you compare support from IBM and support from Informatica, Informatica is much better.""The performance and design of Informatica have been very valuable. I find the performance faster than, say, Oracle Data Integrator or DataStage.""In the end, you have structured, proper data for use in an integrated BI solution.""The features I find most valuable is that the solution is very user-friendly and the graphical design is very easy to understand.""Technical support, and their approach is good. They have a support portal and support tickets. If you open a ticket it has multiple levels of severity from level one to very high or critical.""The most complex task, in this case, was to read and transform BLOB data, and Java transformation in Informatica Power Center was a great solution.""The most valuable feature is the new Data Lake feature, which provides the basic capabilities needed."

Cons
"The data catalog certainly has room for improvement. It is functional but we look forward to development. We are in constant contact with Denodo and they are fully aware of our needs.""The solution should have its own acceleration technology.""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.""Documentation needs to be improved""We occasionally have some integration issues that we need to work through.""The dropdown menus feel antiquated to me, and the administrative portals need improvement."

More Denodo Cons »

"The developer tool documentation can be enhanced with a more clear explanation of each utility, accompanied by relevant examples, so that developers are able to create programs with ease.""Now they are migrating to a new version, and they have something that is called Informatica Developer. Previously, they just had PowerCenter. Now, when they move everything to Informatica Developer it's not as good or stable like it was when it was PowerCenter, though it has some nice features. This Developer tool could be better.""As a connector to big data, it is not well developed. We've had problems connecting Informatica with Hadoop. The functionality to connect Informatica with Hadoop, for me it's not good.""Integration with Artificial Intelligence would benefit this solution.""I would like to see an improvement in the digital adoption.""The licensing cost for Informatica is very high. Other all-in-one solutions have much lower prices than Informatica.""Include more instruments for LOGs analysis, interpretation, and job corrections.""I found it is kind of weird that not all of the mapping changes are treated as true changes."

More Denodo Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Price-wise, it's more expensive than SSIS, but it's a better tool, so it has more features.
