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."
"A helpful feature for us is the integration with NoSQL databases."
"We have contacted their technical support. They are great. They offer very professional help. If I need some technical answer, they are very professional. They are quick, professional, and very accurate."
"The initial setup was quite straightforward. The deployment took between two and three days."
"You can use Talend as a stand-alone application without customization to collect data and generate reports over dashboards. It's got great functionality."
"This solution has improved our overall time to value for data ingestion."
"The drag-and-drop feature in the interface is very good."
"Talend Studio has the ability to use it to ensure data quality."
"We're sold on the customization part of the solution."
"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."
"The price for Talend Data Integration should be less expensive."
"If I compare Open Studion to other solutions, their interface is robust but not so fancy looking. This is an area that could use improvement. I would like to see an updated interface."
"The profiling perspective needs improvement. Instead of using it in the studio, we are using a different tool which is also provided by Talend. It's redundant."
"There used to be many Youtube channels that offered Talend training, but now there don't seem to be any. The solution should offer more online training resources."
"Inter-version compatibility is a problem, and migration projects between versions are required."
"Having additional training materials, such as a video tutorial, would be an improvement."
"The technical support and documentation need a lot of work to come up to standard."
"It gets the job done but it's a bit slow."
"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."
"Talend is free and you can download it."
"The paid version of this solution has a very high price, but even with the limitations, the Community version works fine."
"Price could be lower. It is getting too expensive when compared to some other solutions, which is actually a little bit concerning."
"There are many versions available and one is open-sourced which is free."
"The cost for one year for the ETL tools, not for the big data, is 6K per year. It is a good price."
"It does the job well for nothing — without cost. That's the advantage of this product."
