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

Pros
"Unbeatable speed and compression with a colummn-structured relational database."

More SAP IQ Pros »

"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 organization who owns the product does not support it well and appears not to be doing significant development for the future."

More SAP IQ Cons »

"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."
