REST API calls are available for all Delphix activities. Delphix makes it simple to move data between production to other test or QA environments. Through the replacement with a dummy, yet realistic data of the customer or patient data, you reduce the danger of data breaches for any and all copies of data you produce.

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. Read full review Pros Fast refresh of production data to non-production environments. Easy to automate tasks in Delphix (Bookmark, Rewind, Refresh, etc.) and build pipelines in tools like Jenkins. Enables CI/CD push button build of new virtual database and also the ability to automate regression testing scenarios as well as provide a simple way to expose self-service to developers & testers. The staff at Delphix are knowledgeable and take a genuine interest in helping their customers succeed. The support organization is among the best I've seen. Delphix is good at notifying customers of bugs & features striking a good balance on sending the right amount and type of communication. Delphix is always improving the product and fixing any bugs quickly and transparently. Delphix Data Masking product works as described and allows for multiple streams of masking concurrently to complete masking faster. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons Delphix is a hefty solution for virtualization, but it is not strong enough for the creation of data, so we have to use another platform when it comes to creating new data. Moreover, Delphix web pages do not support AD security groups which eventually results in hassle if you have a large number of users to create and maintain passwords. Read full review 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 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.

Delphix support could be a little better. It seems sometimes we bounce through support engineers until we get one that understands our issues and know how to fix it.

The other competitors in the market are Solix and Data Global and SAP. The pricing and the UI are much simpler and easy to put Delphix in the top spot.

Denodo is simple and easy to use. Highly recommended unless you have huge volumes of data
