What is most valuable?

Of particular value to our environment and applications are the following Greenplum capabilities: * Scalable – Where MADlib does not provide a direct solution to an application problem, the ability to quickly prototype and deploy user defined functions with Python has been effective.

What needs improvement?

We would like to see Greenplum maintain a closer relationship with and parity to features implemented in PostgreSQL. The current version of Greenplum is based on a fork of PostgreSQL v8.2.15. This edition of PostgreSQL was EOL by the PostgreSQL project on Dec 2011. The current version of PostgreSQL is v9.5.
