Denodo Room for Improvement

Margus VäRton
Head of Data Service Department at a government with 201-500 employees
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 functionality which would immensely increase the value of this product. In our organization, when we have to analyze a lot of data, the possibility to represent the very meaning of data to the analysts, which is actually the functionality of data catalog, is very important. Denodo is very good at creating unified access to data. It's not that good yet, in the integration of the semantics of the data, in determining what the data means. In a statistics organization, the integration with a metadata system is extremely important. That's the reason why we have found a way to integrate our metadata system with Denodo data catalog. It's easy to imagine much more functionality and we know that Denodo is fully aware of that. Denodo is improving its data catalog functionality as a result. It's not to say that we are not satisfied with the existing one but we'd like to see improvements. View full review »

In our country, we do have to get the training and do the end-to-end delivery, and that can be a bit hectic when it comes to customer systems development. We need a bit more external support from the company. Support has been a real issue for us. We occasionally have some integration issues that we need to work through. In terms of features, et cetera, I don't know if there is anything really missing from that perspective. We are also new to this product. We have to analyze it and other products and that process often takes some time. It's not fair to comment on what's missing without surveying the entire landscape. View full review »

The dropdown menus feel antiquated to me, and the administrative portals need improvement. In the next release, I would like to see a better user experience and the interface needs modernization. View full review »

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. View full review »

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 need a lot of documentation. View full review »

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. View full review »
