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

Pros
The most valuable aspect of this solution is that the infrastructure is easy to understand.It can calculate data in detail. Before we could not calculate financial documents and accountant documents in detail, we could not do it at a document level but now we can. This is the most important feature. It also has predictive analysis memory.The most valuable feature is the dashboard.The solution is easier to maintain than traditional SAP products.From an ERP point of view and a functionality point of view, it works very well. The benefits are in that of financial costing and material management.Out of the box, this solution has a lot of standard features.The processes are the most valuable aspect of this solution.The most valuable feature is that it's robust.

Pivotal Greenplum's shared-nothing architecture.The most valuable feature for us is horizontal scaling.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.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.

Cons
Pricing would be a good improvement. A lot of customers think that it's very expensive and especially support is very expensive.Not a ten because it's expensive and its ecosystem is not very open.The dashboard should be simplified and made easier for exploration and decision making.The solution does occasionally get a few bugs, but this is typical for any product.In the next release, I would like to see their BI component introduced with a mobile version, as it is not currently present.Connecting multiple sources is a challenge because you have to go through a lot of different setups.I cannot integrate it with my other tools. It's not possible to do something in the predictive analysis. Mobile reporting is also not available.

Initial setup is a little complex. It took around two weeks to deploy.I saw some limitation with respect to the column store, and removing this would be an improvement.Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality, like fully down processing, etc.The installation is difficult and should be made easier.
