What is most valuable?

It is a go-to tool for data virtualization. The virtualization and data catalog are the features of why we chose Denodo.

What needs improvement?

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. I'd like to see an improvement to data catalog… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't have any other data virtualization tools available. Denodo was one of our first options when we were evaluating solutions and luckily we were able to close a deal at a reasonable price level.

What other advice do I have?

If you have the business needs for data visualization which is a core technology that Denodo represents, then, I would say to go for it as the platform really works well. Don't have too high expectations on data catalog functionality. It… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We made an internal analysis of available blind spots inside our organization and of our business needs and platform needs. We eliminated all competing platforms. We took a close look at many platforms but Denodo was the only one that fit… more »

What is most valuable?

The performance and the speed to market are the most valuable features of this solution.

What needs improvement?

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.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing costs cost extra.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to someone considering this solution would be to understand your own personalized environment and out of the box configuration settings of Denodo. Our next journey would be to the cloud. That was the only thing that we were looking at embarking upon, but obviously, within a big… more »

What is most valuable?

The data abstraction is the most valuable feature. The data modeling is very good. It's a powerful tool. The way the UI is organized is suitable for our use. The data building is also good.

What needs improvement?

The solution should have its own acceleration technology. The connectivity is not so great. It uses standard protocols to connect to the data center, it could improve the interface in terms of automation. The connection should be easier for the end-user. At the moment it's a bit too complex. You… more »

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant with a reseller. We use the on-premises deployment model. If clients are looking into integrating value sources and they don't have to be on the MPP clusters then I'd recommend Denodo. However, if they are looking at something more contained within the Data Lake construction, they… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I'm also working with other solutions, not just Denodo. Denodo is more agnostic. It's meant for the Data Lake engine and is a better support for it.

What is most valuable?

This solution is a really good way to get all your sources organized when there are data problems and things are scattered everywhere. You have some flat files, some databases and it's all over the place. This provides one central place for all those connected to carry out governance and build up the views and type of information that need to be extracted. It's like a whiteboard in the sense that… more »

What needs improvement?

Documentation needs to be improved, they need to lift their game. Finding information is difficult. I'm doing the training and they provide courses but it could be improved. I haven't tested the solution for long enough to be able to suggest any additional features.

What other advice do I have?

I haven't used a similar tool so I can't compare it to anything. I think it's a good product, despite some minor issues. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.
