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

Pros
"This solution will connect to any database, you can combine databases, and you can create a cube or tabular model.""The Cube Solution is quite different when compared to the rest of the competition and has unique functionality for advanced analytics.""I like that it's integrated with other Azure products.""This is a well-integrated solution and that integration empowers results."

"We chose Greenplum because of the architecture in terms of clustering databases and being able to have, or at least utilize the resources that are sitting on a database.""Scalability is simple because it's an MPP database. If you need more processing power or you need more storage, you just add a few more nodes in the cluster. It works on common commodity hardware. You can use any type of server. You don't need to have proprietary hardware. It's fairly flexible.""The most valuable feature for us is horizontal scaling.""Pivotal Greenplum's shared-nothing architecture.""The parallel load features mean that Greenplum is capable of high-volume data loading in parallel to all of the cluster segments, which is really valuable.""It's super easy to deploy and it also supports different languages and analytics."

Cons
"The flexibility of this solution needs to be improved because you cannot make changes at every one of the different steps.""Functionality needs to be more up-to-date with competing products.""The pricing model needs to be improved.""Machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities need to be more friendly for beginning users.""I think the biggest problem with the product is that it does a data ingest model, which is very expensive.""Releases of new products and functionality is never accompanied by associated documentation, training and resources that adequately explain the release."

"The installation is difficult and should be made easier.""Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality, like fully down processing, etc.""I saw some limitation with respect to the column store, and removing this would be an improvement.""Initial setup is a little complex. It took around two weeks to deploy.""The initial setup is somewhat complex and the out-of-the-box configuration requires optimization.""They should add more analytics. Their documentation could also be improved so that I don't have to bother my co-workers and tech support so often."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The initial price is lower than Oracle, but extensive use of SQL may lead to a higher total cost of ownership.""Users have to pay extra for premium-level technical support.""We are currently paying $200,000 a year for all the different parts of the suite during an ingest model Microsoft now charges us $700,000 a year."
