Gary NelsonSenior Technical Architect at a financial services firm
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I am very satisfied with the customer service/technical support."
"The most valuable features are the performance and usability."
"The most valuable feature for me is querying."
"One of the most important features is the ease of using MS SQL."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is performance."
"The data transmissions between the data models is the most valuable feature."
"The most valuable feature is the business intelligence (BI) part of it."
"We are able to monitor daily jobs, so if there is anything that needs to be done then we can do it."
"Intelliflex is very scalable. In fact, scalability has improved 100 times by Intelliflex, in my personal opinion."
"It is very stable. It's 100% uptime. Speed and resilience are one of the greatest features of this product. In almost twenty years we've never had downtime, except for outages for patches and upgrades. We've never had a system failure in twenty years."
"In the future I would love to see a slightly better automation engine, just for the data integration layer, to make it slightly easier for end-users or junior developers to get involved in incremental updating."
"More tools to help designers should be included."
"I would like to see better visualization features."
"I think that the error messages need to be made more specific."
"The reporting for certain types of data needs to be improved."
"This solution would be improved with an option for in-memory data analysis."
"If the database is large with a lot of columns then it is difficult to clean the data."
"I would like the tool to support different operating systems."
"The reporting side wasn't very good in the past, but with the latest versions, it's getting better. Still, the friendliness of the PDC reporting and functionality needs to be improved."
"They should add more connectors to different platforms."
"I think the program is well-priced compared to the other offerings that are out in the market."
"Microsoft has an agreement with the government in our country, so our customers get their licensing costs from the Ministry. Whenever we work with any government, company, or government institute, which is mainly what we are doing, that license comes directly from the Ministry of Technology and Information."
"All the features that we use do not require any additional subscription or yearly fees."

The traditional structured relational data warehouse was never designed to handle the volume of exponential data growth, the variety of semi-structured and unstructured data types, or the velocity of real time data processing. Microsoft's SQL Server data warehouse solution integrates your traditional data warehouse with non-relational data and it can handle data of all sizes and types, with real-time performance.
Teradata IntelliFlex delivers real-time intelligence to place vital data into the hands of front-line decision makers, while extending traditional data warehouse functionality into the realm of tactical decision making. With IntelliFlex, you can combine both these strategic and operational workloads in a single data warehouse.
