We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The most valuable features are data lineage and the concept of a semantic layer."
"Access to numerous forums and internet information."
"It is a smart tool for us to design data pipelines. It lets us populate our three data lake instances. We like this solution for its connection capabilities, since it is very important to be able to use many different types of software. We tested a lot of SAP sources successfully, including cloud sources with SAP. It is also very easy to anonymize data with TIBCO, as well as populating HDFS files, packet files, and raw files. It is very easy to do that with Talend Data Fabric."
"We've had no issues with the stability so far."
"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."
"The support is not the best and should be improved."
"Lacks integrations with AWS, GCP and the like."
"Deployment can be difficult, but I didn't test the latest version yet. With Talend products, every release brings a lot of new features and functionalities. This is never a small adaptation, because the tool is maturing, but we need to test the latest version and to check its deployment capabilities."
"I would like to see better integration with other tools."
"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."
"There are no additional licensing fees when you scale"
