BI Developer at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Fast in taking unstructured data, processing it and spitting out all the different data types. The team moved to SSIS/SSRS, I suspect it didn’t fit in with the goal of creating a data warehouse.

What other advice do I have?

It is excellent for data profiling. I felt the calculations were a bit overly complex but over-all a very good product and very visual with good stats. Be absolutely certain and clear what you want it for. My manager hadn’t a clue. He thought it was just a big red button labelled “Press Here to Create a Data Warehouse...”.

You need the right person to make the best of this product and you need to allow them a good amount of time to work.

Technical Data Analyst at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It is not perfect but certainly makes my job much easier.

What other advice do I have?

I would say have the X88 team come and demonstrate the product on some of your real data. This should be enough to convince you that Pandora can improve your data quality/Stewardship or help with your Data Migration/Integration Project.
Senior Data Warehouse Specialist at a tech vendor with 10,001+ employees
The version I used was far from mature and I would recommend another solution.

What is most valuable?

The ability to find relationships between data sources.

For how long have I used the solution?

Around 3 months

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

The Teradata connectivity was faulty and had to be patched by the vendor product team.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The tool was very unstable and was constantly hogging the resources, even if was not operating at the moment. The recommendation from the vendor was to "disable when not used". Also, sometimes it would halt for no reason, with the recommendation being "kill the process and start it up".

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We never got to this point where we had issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

BI Expert at a government with 51-200 employees
Great for combining data quality & transformation together, but the automation & external access could be improved.

What other advice do I have?

To use the product effectively you need to ask your self what your goals are. The product can offer un-paralleled analysis of your data in a very short space and can be used as an ongoing tool in your daily DQ battles. Or it can be used as a prototyping tool to get a project up and running before handing over the self generating documentation to your development teams to build a more integrated solution.
Business Systems Support Analyst with 1,001-5,000 employees
I was originally doing this as a manual process, which would not have sufficed for what we had planned.

What other advice do I have?

Seriously think of what you want to use the tool for, as this can be an expensive piece of kit to run, make sure that the services it offers are what you are looking for and will significantly reduce the time of whatever you may use it for.
Network Manager at a manufacturing company with 501-1,000 employees
A quick, efficient data profiler using integrated technology as an addition to database query.

What other advice do I have?

I chose Pandora X88 because I was able to get a free trial and didn't have to rely on a salesman to show me a short presentation. This is a very efficient assessment of company data. This was comparable in price. This program portrayed data problems that I wasn't aware of with using the database as a stand alone.
