Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization

I think it would work well in a Java/Linux environment. It is not as suited to Windows/.Net.

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.

Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization

  • Data source compatibility: since it is Java, it can connect to anything with a JDBC driver.
  • Flexibility: you can configure it however you want, we have it configured to use LDAPS for authentication and have all interfaces encrypted, and setting that up was pretty straight forward.

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?

Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization

  • Documentation: hard to navigate, or missing entirely.
  • Integration with Windows: ODBC drivers are not great, don't support SSL.
  • Logging: troubleshooting issues is not straight forward, often requires logging changes.

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.

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

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.

Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization

  • It has allowed us to start moving applications independent from their underlying data sources, savings us time and limiting cutover effort.
