If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Denodo, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I haven't used a similar tool so I can't compare it to anything. I think it's a good product, despite some minor issues. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.
My advice to someone considering this solution would be to understand your own personalized environment and out of the box configuration settings of Denodo. Our next journey would be to the cloud. That was the only thing that we were looking at embarking upon, but obviously, within a big corporation, we need to do due diligence from our side. I think Denodo had already the features to be integrated into the cloud we needed to do our homework to make sure that we could onboard the cloud with certainty. I would rate Denodo an eight out of ten.
I'm a consultant with a reseller. We use the on-premises deployment model. If clients are looking into integrating value sources and they don't have to be on the MPP clusters then I'd recommend Denodo. However, if they are looking at something more contained within the Data Lake construction, they should go for something more granular. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
If you have the business needs for data visualization which is a core technology that Denodo represents, then, I would say to go for it as the platform really works well. Don't have too high expectations on data catalog functionality. It works, but, its current implementation is rather rudimental. I would recommend it to others. For us, it is a success story. I would rate it a nine out of ten. Not a ten only because I am hesitant to give a perfect score.
