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
Skyvia is a good choice for data backup and restoration. Automatic daily and manual cloud-to-cloud SaaS backups ensure that our data is securely backed up and can be easily restored when needed. The search for backup functionality helps to find and restore specific records quickly.
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 Skyvia is good at scheduled bidirectional data integration to/from multiple sources The mapping is done automatically which saves a lot of time I like that all connectors are included in the price, so I don't have to pay for using some new ones additionally 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.

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.

Compared to similar user-friendly data integration systems like
, Stitch, or Azure, Skyvia still wins in the number of connectors and pricing policy. Skyvia is a tool for companies like ours, starving for simple but, at the same time, robust and cost-effective data transfer solutions. It doesn't require additional knowledge for implementation and usage because it's no code. We'd recommend Skyvia as the best solution for non-technical staff.
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. Read full review The core of our business lies in analyzing data from various sources, and while ETL itself is not our primary focus, it is a necessary process to achieve our goals. Thanks to Skyvia, we are able to streamline the ETL process at a reasonable price, allowing us to dedicate our efforts to data analysis without the burden of ETL complexities.
