Denodo
Denodo allows us to create and combine new views to create a
virtual repository and APIs without a single line of code. It is excellent
because it can present connectors with a view format for downstream consumers
by flattening a JSON file. Reading or connecting to various sources and
displaying a tabular view is an excellent feature. The product's technical data
catalog is well-organized.

  • Database Agnostic: You can easily connect to different environments and mash up data sets.
  • The "magic" of data virtualization: No data is created, so data is reported in near-real-time to end users.
  • It's easy to use UI for developers. You just connect to a data source, create tables, and join them to other datasets.

  • Caching - but I am sure it will be improved by now. There were times when we expected the cache to be refreshed but it was stale.
  • Schema generation of endpoints from API response was sometimes incomplete as not all API calls returned all the fields. Will be good to have an ability to load the schema itself (XSD/JSON/Soap XML etc).
  • Denodo exposed web services were in preliminary stage when we used; I'm sure it will be improved by now.
  • Export/Import deployment, while it was helpful, there were unexpected issues without any errors during deployment. Issues were only identified during testing. Some views were not created properly and did not work. If it was working in the environment from where it was exported from, it should work in the environment where it is imported.

Denodo is very easy to use. It has a user-friendly drag and drop interface. I'm not a fan of the java platform it resides on.

Denodo
Denodo is a tool to rapidly mash data sources together and create meaningful datasets. It does have its downfalls though. When you create larger, more complex datasets, you will most likely need to cache your datasets, regardless of how proper your joins are set up. Since DV takes data from multiple environments, you are taxing the corporate network, so you need to be conscious of how much data you are sending through the network and truly understand how and when to join datasets due to this.

Alternatives Considered
Altova
Altova MapForce Server is a powerful data integration tool that supports a wide range of data sources and targets. Talend Data Integration is also a powerful data integration tool, but it does not support as many data sources and targets as Altova MapForce Server. Altova MapForce Server also supports a wide range of data transformation and mapping features, making it a more versatile tool than Talend Data Integration.
