What is most valuable?

The usual data cleansing: The suggestions it made for data formats (size, type, etc.) especially, and how quick it was. It was very fast in taking unstructured data, processing it and spitting out all… more »

How has it helped my organization?

The product was dropped not long after I left the organization, I was told. The data team I was on moved to SSIS/SSRS, I heard. I suspect it didn’t fit in with the over-all goal of creating a data… more »

What needs improvement?

The manual calculations and formulae. They were a bit complex. The formulae were a bit abstract. Not easy to understand. Not intuitive. I sat beside an SSIS guru and he took one look at them and said… more »

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

It is way, way over-priced in my opinion. There was a political storm in the organisation when it was bought. I for one didn’t think they needed it, but I am only a contractor with no say in these… more »

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

I did not previously use a different solution.

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… more »

What is most valuable?

The easy, fast and fully repeatable consolidation, analysis and output of data from multiple sources in multiple formats.

How has it helped my organization?

It has given us the ability to build information that wasn’t otherwise there, to build confidence in our applications, to troubleshoot data effectively and focus our efforts on genuine errors. We have… more »

What needs improvement?

The stability is not perfect but has improved a lot in the latest version. The online training is very useful but needs expanding and updating – it has loads of potential.

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

This I don’t know – the day-to-day cost is licensing and mainly my time.

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

We did not previously have a solution in this sense, we just used Excel!

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was not part of this process.

Technical Data Analyst at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Sep 17 2014

What is most valuable?

The Data Analysis features are most valuable allowing me to analyse large datasets with ease in a short time span.

How has it helped my organization?

The Daily checking of Data quality has allowed the company to cleanse and improve data quality on an on-going basis.

What needs improvement?

End to End connectivity could do with some improvement which I believe they are working on at this time.

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

No this was the first specific tool of this kind used.

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… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The evaluation was carried out by a third party and I am unaware of which other products were considered.

What do you think of Experian Data Quality?

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?

What is most valuable?

X88 has the ability to import large volumes of data at great speed whilst categorizing the metadata for each artifact. This is a great feature when you need to analyze… more »

How has it helped my organization?

I have used this tool with many clients where there has been a need to rapidly prototype some data transformations, the speed at which this can be done visually in X88… more »

What needs improvement?

The product has great features for combining data quality and transformation together, but the automation and external access to the data could be improved.

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

The product costs can be as simple as an initial outlay for the product with on going support, or on a lease basis for short-term products.

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

Typically to perform the same function required manual database work and scripts to extract and perform the same functions. X88 gave a quick view of the quality of the… more »

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… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No, there aren’t many other products that compete in the same space. When considering other tools like Qlikview Expressor, Wherescape and Talend their ETL capabilities are… more »

What is most valuable?

The extraction of data and possible ways you can format this to your needs

How has it helped my organization?

On two projects we have initiated recently we needed large amounts of data from our ERP system, alongside this we needed to do a comparable from our HR system to map the data, we were easily able to… more »

What needs improvement?

I do not have any improvements I can offer, this tool has provided me with enough and more than what I need.

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

I did not deal with the cost side of it, however the user license can be deemed expensive if you do not make the most out of it.

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

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… more »

What is most valuable?

Pandora provides a quick, efficient way to analyze, control and improve data using integrated technology. Quickly assess and improves the problem data. Is a validation of business rules. This offers a free data profiler that entices the user to upgrade. This combines all data integration into one program.

What needs improvement?

The free data profiler doesn't contain enough dashboards to give the user a better feel of the program. Return on investment wasn't enough to persuade to upgrade. This is price comparable. This program doesn't offer much more than other data profilers.

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.
