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
Flexible data models and every data record you connect to
automatically stays up-to-date and consistent. The easy and self-explanatory handling of the system. Compared to Hubspot, we can configure the layouts much more conveniently and dynamically. Read full review Pros 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 Pimcore is fully opensource and based on leading Symfony, the leading PHP framework. It has a well-developed partner network and community support. In contrast to other systems that have a quite rigid architecture Pimcore is designed as a platform for developers. It can be used to model complex data architecture with ease and develop features tailored to customer needs. It provides a fully integrated platform for Product Information Management, Digital Asset Management, and Enterprise Content Management. This ensures there is no duplication of assets and content and data across multiple systems. All PIM features are also available through a REST-based Web Service allowing easy integration with other applications. In addition to PIM, DAM and WCM features it also provides a robust eCommerce platform. Read full review Cons 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.

If something like wordpress kind of installer can be developed ... that would be awesome Developer documentation could have been better With growing popularity MACH architecture, I would suggest PIMCore team for making it headless first platform Make single click setup over Digital Ocean, Linode and other cloud provider Read full review Usability
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.

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

PIMCore is Digital Platform making it single source of truth for many upstream and downstream system.
is just PIM and its doing PIM job properly but PimCore is much more than this. AEM is too costly and can't be affordable for many small and mid size companies
Read full review Return on Investment It is a huge advantage that we can connect to many different databases to provide data rapidly and accurately. It has proven to be a valuable environment for deploying data virtualization solutions, and its user community is active in finding and fixing issues.
