We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 performance and the speed to market are the most valuable features of this solution."
"Access to numerous forums and internet information."
"The most valuable feature is Data Catalogs."
"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 data abstraction is the most valuable feature."
"The solution has a free to use community version."
"The amount of data that it loads and processes is good."
"It's my understanding that the product can scale."
"Pentaho Data Integration is quite simple to learn, and there is a lot of information available online."
"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."
"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 solution should have its own acceleration technology."
"Lacks integrations with AWS, GCP and the like."
"The dropdown menus feel antiquated to me, and the administrative portals need improvement."
"Documentation needs to be improved"
"The support is not the best and should be improved."
"We occasionally have some integration issues that we need to work through."
"It's not very stable, at least not in the case of the community edition. I'm working with the community edition right now and I think perhaps it is because of that it is not very stable, it causes the system to sometimes hang. I'm not sure if this is the case for pair tiers."
"I'm still in the very recent stage concerning Pentaho Data Integration, but it can't really handle what I describe as "extreme data processing" i.e. when there is a huge amount of data to process. That is one area where Pentaho is still lacking."
"I would like to see improvements made for real-time data processing."
"The product needs more plugins."
"The licensing should be improved, as the cost per connector is quite expensive."
"I don't know the actual cost, but it's tens of thousands of dollars per month."
"Sometimes we provide the licenses or the customer can procure their own licenses. Previously, we had an enterprise license. Currently, we are on a community license as this is adequate for our needs."
"The price of the regular version is not reasonable and it should be lower."
