Actian DataConnect

If your company houses a lot of data locally and needs to free up space, the Actian DataConnect Hybrid Cloud Data Warehouse is an excellent solution for the price. It also allows for complex queries and even some basic data analytics, like Market Basket Analysis. Their free trial period is extremely convenient and you may discover more uses for it than you originally think.

It is easy to deploy this product at a reduced cost and high capability of offering huge returns within the shortest time possible. The performance in data virtualization is always effective giving us great chances of making excellent decisions that we implement 100%.

Pros

Actian DataConnect

  • The large connector base for DataConnect is outstanding. However even when they do not have a custom connector, they have a web services Invoker which allows you to connect to any web services.
  • The underlying scripting language is Visual Basic-ish. Very easy to start.
  • The product has been around a long time, through multiple company acquistions, and still is a competitive player via pricing.
  • Support team is awesome.
  • Large user community.

TIBCO Data Virtualization

  • I really like how the tool handles all of the robust data and then simplifies the data that could have been possible otherwise.
  • This tool supports many data sources that are either available on-premise or in the cloud and which could help in easier access for all the users.
  • The capability of this software to use the query editor is pretty outstanding I believe.

Cons

Actian DataConnect

  • Sometimes the screen does not load- since it is a web based software, this can be seen as a reliability issue.
  • "Maps" can become somewhat complex, and between multiple developers this can be painful when sharing or explaining others' work.
  • The concept of macros adds flexibility in how to solve problems, but is a separate language and can take time to learn and master.
Justin Duperre | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Data Virtualization

  • The pricing is high, which makes it unsuitable for small organizations.
  • Its user interface looks quite old and unappealing. The options are not placed optimally.
  • Initially, its learning curve is quite high (its bad user interface doesn't do any favours either) and it takes some time to learn it.

The product has done everything we require for data connectivity. However, some dedicated Marketing platforms such as Domo or Datorama make Marketing reporting much easier with pre-defined analytics.

It has a drag-and-drop feature and a good list of data adapters which makes it easy to thread across elements of various data sources.

Actian DataConnect is a great product for data storage, processing, and complex querying. It also has the added benefits of basic data analytics and data mining. We were surprised at how easy it was to perform Market Basket Analysis. I would highly recommend this system to a large business and encourage you to start a free trial period.

Support is overall providing reliable and professional services. It gives solutions to our all problems. Moreover, this
platform is the caching aspect as all the storing of standard data just ensures better performance which is good news for the users. Also, the ability to pull
huge amounts of data in real-time makes the analysis so quick and easier than
without it.

Other vendors have clearer, more visual implementation documentation. We also did not have our data architect and and server administrator available full-time for implementation. In the future, we will secure the necessary internal resources.

Alternatives Considered

Actian DataConnect

As I stated earlier, DataConnect makes a head-to-head run against the others. It has advantages and disadvantages compared to the competitors. The choice really comes down to pricing and specific requirement needs for the project you are planning. Questions such as On-premise or Cloud, Security, and Specific Connectors available will drive your decision.

TIBCO Data Virtualization

I have not worked with similar products in my working experience. The current version is very powerful in data monitoring. The centralized metadata has improved our working interactions and improved most of the outcomes and profit gains. Decision making based on clean data has improved our operation and created better working environment and leading to goal achievement.

Return on Investment

Actian DataConnect

  • This tool was chosen prior to my arrival and was used to build three integrations. We have decided to switch to SSIS since we have licenses for it and it is a more common tool for ETL integrations.
  • It has been difficult to network with individuals that have experience with this tool.
  • Having been a part of a software package purchased, we have chosen to use a different tool for future integrations and plan to rewrite existing integrations.
Justin Duperre | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Data Virtualization

  • The growth of the use of TIBCO Data Virtualization in the company is widely satisfactory for different departments that depend on its use to complete the safe work with the optimal data virtualization and with TIBCO integrations and also third-party tools, all this is a factor determining factor in the company's own growth.
