CloverDX

CloverDX designer as a standalone is well suited for fairly straightforward transformations of data. If you want to do large scale data integrations, then their server edition adds an extra level of automation and job control.

TIBCO Data Virtualization

Well suited to read data from Excel files, although to set up an efficient and error-proof process it requires you to create a foundation and that is quite time consuming, but once it's there, it works well.Solution is structured nicely in a folder hierarchy.Less apppropriate when you need to add a lot of business logic to the data, if you need to enrich the data. Such logic is hard to implement and slows down a lot.Less appropriate for creating real-time insights, caching or storing on database is almost always required to get good performance.

Pros

CloverDX

  • Connects with Salesforce very well
  • The graphical view of the transformations allows for easy creations and maintenance
  • Support has always been eager to assist with any graph creation difficulties I run into
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Data Virtualization

  • Rich data connectivity and intelligent analysis to discover explicit and implicit relations between data in various sources.
  • Intelligent and rich query optimization algorithms to minimize pressure on source systems and make use of the performance enhancements capabilities of the source systems.
  • There is one version of the TDV- tool that holds all functionality. No additional licenses needed, everything is included.
  • MPP-functionality (TDV 8.0.0) makes automatic query distribution over large (big data) clusters possible and guarantees very high performance with querying 100's of millions of rows.
  • The TDV Studio application combines the use of ANSI-SQL (you can script for more complex tasks) with a graphical user interface for modeling the data layers, both supporting fast development of data and web services. TDV Server is a complete package with all the enterprise grade functionality an organization may need.

Cons

CloverDX

  • The initial learning curve is a little steep. Not very steep or super steep, just a little steep.
  • Having enough memory for large multi-step problems can be an issue if the graph isn't designed well.
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Data Virtualization

  • It is versatile but it also makes it quite complex if you haven't already thought it out fully before you start writing the views.
  • Performance is highly dependent on queries used

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.

While CloverDX has an active forum for users to submit questions and assist with answers, their in house support team is incredibly responsive when I've contacted them for assistance. This seems almost at odds with most other software companies who try to save money on tech support by promoting a forum or knowledge base.

They have very good customer support; their response is quick. Whenever I raise a support ticket they are quick enough to respond to our ticket and resolve the issue.

Alternatives Considered

CloverDX

CloverDX was a less expensive alternative to Talend and had a more intuitive interface from what I could see during the evaluation.
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Data Virtualization

TIBCO/Composite Data Virtualization tool competes against Denodo and Red Hat data virtualization tools. While they have comparable features. The TIBCO product is stronger as far as performance and scalability. Denodo was superior when it comes to metadata capabilities, as well forward-engineering and reverse-engineering using data modeling tools such as ERwin or Sybase PowerDesigner.
