What is most valuable?

* It's one of the fastest databases in the market. * It's easy to use. * From a maintenance perspective it's a good product. * The segmentation, or architecture of the product is different than other databases such as Oracle. So even in 10... more»

How has it helped my organization?

For complex queries, which would normally take a long time, and for reporting, it is very efficient. It doesn't take a long time for the execution of any report for the end-user.

What needs improvement?

The implementation of an upgrade takes a long time. But maybe it's different from one instance to another, I'm not sure. Also, one of the disadvantages, not a disadvantage with the product itself, but overall, is the expertise in the... more»

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.

As long as we have good SQL knowledge, we can start playing in the platform. Greenplum uses Postgres and ANSI Standard SQL. Also, it supports many other procedural... more»

What is most valuable?

The MPP element is crucial, so far as it allows us to query millions of rows at a time, at speed.

How has it helped my organization?

The previous data warehouse was built in Oracle. One of the things which has improved in GreenPlum is that we can query millions of rows at speed, without creating lags. We’ve also built far more views; slowly changing dimensions can... more»

What needs improvement?

We found some issues with larger tables that have daily data appended, where after a while this seems to create lag in the query speed. This might just have to do with local knowledge rather than the product itself. We have a table which is... more»

What is most valuable?

Append Only tables, data compression and bulk load and extraction using External Tables are very valuable features for us.

How has it helped my organization?

We have improved our quarterly statements turnaround dramatically and could sustain for increasing data.

What needs improvement?

With the ORCA optimizer the earlier Append-Only feature has been upgraded to Append-Optimized where now we can update the data on earlier Append-Only tables just like any other heap tables. But I found this has increased the time taken for... more»
