    Denodo

    Donodo is very well suited for large organizations with siloed datasets. Denodo thrives in these environments, since large organizations can afford the licensing costs, and are always tasked to mash up data from multiple environments throughout the organization.

    Microsoft Power BI

    In operations we use the tool for many different topics, from factory quality systems to high level reviews.We have created kind of an internal "App Store" based on Power BI where you have a lot of different dashboards for different solutions (cost, cash, health and safety, sales, factories, distribution centers...) and you as an user just need to get in that "App Store" and enter in whatever tool can be useful for you. It is open to all the operations employees and can use on demand.Also it has raised the imagination of our colleagues, as they are not only working by themselves creating new reports, but also raising fantastic ideas that can be extended for the usage of all the community.

    Pros

    Denodo

    • Flat learning curve.
    • Does not need brilliant developers.
    • Less need for custom denodo wrappers, even if needed is not very complex.
    • Denodo stored procedures and functions helped address complex, not straightforward requirements.
    • Export/import deployment between environments was very helpful.

    Microsoft Power BI

    • Quickly filter and view granular data sets with easily configurable reporting figures.
    • The ability to quickly switch between tabs allows for historical data comparisons and progress tracking.
    • It's helpful to dive into the data and break it down from high levels to small.
    • Achieve actionable insights faster by using real-time data. It's incredible to have online access to reports.
    Afia Tamanna | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Denodo

    • Lack of Documentation and user community: Denodo continues to have a small community of super users, therefore there is not a lot of documentation out there in the event you get stuck.
    • Cost: Data virtualization isn't cheap, so smaller organizations might shy away from this technology due to the high licensing costs.
    • Caching strategy: Some slower datasets will require caching... which argues, why not just do traditional ETL if you need to do this?

    Microsoft Power BI

    • The desktop app is great but needs a lot of performance improvements
    • No MacOS Version for the Desktop app, this is a big limitation for business since executives prefer Macs
    • Premium Cloud Version of Power BI is awfully expensive
    • On-Premise Version of the Power BI Reports Server is bundled only with SQL Server Enterprise License and cannot be purchased separately and requires Software Assurance Subscription
    • On-Premise Power BI Report Server doesn't support ADFS, AzureAD or any Claims-Based authentication platform, a sad disadvantage for enterprises

    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.

    At this point, I think we all know who has taken the lead in the business intelligence and analytics market worldwide. With fresh new updates every other day on top of an already robustly built product with all features that one can dream of is a no brainer, I feel. Microsoft will invariably be synonymous with quality and professionalism.

    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.

    I can't really speak to the support overall, [but] I will say that in the almost three years I have used the system, I have only needed to contact their support team once. I think the team was helpful, but it did take some time for us to resolve the issues/ request that they had. I guess the good news is that the system is pretty stable, and I personally have rarely needed to contact their technical support team.

    Alternatives Considered

    Denodo

    I did not use any other data virtualization platform. BizTalk is not the right comparison; it is an integration layer and for orchestration; do not use denodo as an orchestration layer, it is not for connecting upstreams to downstreams and orchestrate data flows, it is primarily for pulling information and presenting in a fashion that benefit the audience

    Microsoft Power BI

    [Microsoft] Power BI is practical and effective, like a hammer for a nail, it is easy to use and produces very quickly the results that in most cases are urgently required by clients (nice reports to share on the web). To start using [Microsoft] Power BI you need a business email address, with that you create an account in Power BI Service and in less than 1 hour you will have installed Power BI Desktop, a report will have been created and it will have been published on the web .

    Return on Investment

    Denodo

    • Improved time-to-market. We addressed new requirements in less than 2 person days.
    • Very agile. Easy to handle changing requirements. Like a new requirement, a change in requirement was not expensive either.
    • Platform issues were difficult to diagnose and debug.
    Karthick Subharaj Rajarathinam | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power BI

    • It helps us track and achieve company goals.
    • It shows us [our] performance in areas we could not previously track and allows us to see and work on how to improve their performance.
    • Quick easy access for executives to use in helping teams and addressing issues.
