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."
"The solution is very scalable. It can handle a lot. We have encryption plus integration servers running on that platform currently."
"The solution is stable. We haven't had any serious technical issues."
"It is user friendly, it's not complex."
"The most valuable features are the stability and the time to market."
"The most valuable part of the solution is the ease-of-use and ease of deployment."
"The most important thing is that it is easy for developers to work with."
"It is very stable. It is a market leader, and it has connectors to many of the legacy systems. It also has enterprise cloud connectors."
"The high availability, tolerance, and load balancing features are top-notch. Its scalability features are also pretty cool."
"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."
"Technical support is average. It's not the best."
"I'd like to see a new cloud approach in the next release. They need to work on integrations, stability and management issues on their cloud platform."
"They don't support out of the box - you have to buy adapters or you have to have the technology."
"There are not many plugins available to integrate the databases. We have to write it in Java and integrate it. The developers should have more knowledge. These are the three main aspects that they could improve."
"The container-based image is too large and this makes auto-scaling difficult."
"The cost of this product is too expensive for smaller companies or those with a small number of integrations."
"Its price can be improved. For medium enterprises, it is a very expensive tool. In the market, you won't get many resources for this solution. You won't find many developers in the market very easily. The latest version of TIBCO (6.4 or 6.x) is not very stable. It has got many issues. We have raised this with TIBCO, and they are taking a lot of time to come up with a fix, which is making us move away from this product. Some of the performance-tuning aspects are also missing in version 6. They should provide performance-related fixes, which will be helpful for the customers. If you are migrating from the current version to the container-supported version, it is quite expensive. The product has evolved, but it is very pricey. That's one of the challenges. They have provided all the features that are there in other products, but this is a platform upgrade. The platform has completely been changed from 5.x to 6.x, and we can't use the same environment. We can't run both versions on the same server as VM. The development environment is entirely different. In version 5.x, there was a proprietary designer. Now, it has common plug-ins developed on top of Eclipse."
"The Business Studio tool can be improved, which is the tool for designing the processes. Improving the Business Studio tool will make this solution more stable. It has a steep learning curve, and it is pretty tough to learn."
"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."
"My understanding is that the licensing is very costly."
"It is a bit expensive for medium-sized companies. If you are migrating from the current version to the container-supported version, it is quite expensive. The existing licensing will not work because the product platform itself is different."
"Its price policy has changed quite a lot in the last two years. It was extremely expensive previously. Nowadays, you can buy a license for BusinessWorks for €2000. Looking at what you get in return in terms of support, TIBCO community, and stability, it is fairly reasonable. It is not too expensive."
