Presto is for interactive simple queries, where
is for reliable processing. If you have a fact-dim join, presto is great..however for fact-fact joins presto is not the solution.. Presto is a great replacement for proprietary technology like

TIBCO Data Virtualization has developed a platform to track, manage, and provide concise reports throughout the various stages of the sales process. It is a powerful tool that has helped maximise efficiency through its visualisation formats. After working with this tool and seeing the benefits, I couldn't imagine my life without it. I will continue to use TIBCO Data Virtualization for the foreseeable future.
Read full review Pros Linking, embedding links and adding images is easy enough. Once you have become familiar with the interface, Presto becomes very quick & easy to use (but, you have to practice & repeat to know what you are doing - it is not as intuitive as one would hope). Organizing & design is fairly simple with click & drag parameters. Read full review Connecting to different data silos and presenting the data as a singled unified layer of data. Exposing data to Technical and non technical users through Web UI or reporting tools Secured exposure of data as web services. Row level and column level data security Multi tenancy data security. Real time data by connecting to the operational databases Historical data generation Read full review Cons Presto was not designed for large fact fact joins. This is by design as presto does not leverage disk and used memory for processing which in turn makes it fast.. However, this is a tradeoff..in an ideal world, people would like to use one system for all their use cases, and presto should get exhaustive by solving this problem. Resource allocation is not similar to YARN and presto has a priority queue based query resource allocation..so a query that takes long takes longer...this might be alleviated by giving some more control back to the user to define priority/override. UDF Support is not available in presto. You will have to write your own functions..while this is good for performance, it comes at a huge overhead of building exclusively for presto and not being interoperable with other systems like Hive, SparkSQL etc. Read full review Performance of TDV Studio (its own IDE) is poor. Performance of TDV repository database is rather poor for larger numbers of objects .(Note: We have approx. 9tsd objects introspected in TDV and approx. 20tsd objects generated in upper DV layers.) Propagation of privileges to parent/child dependencies does not work when applying recursively on a folder. (It's a huge setback when working with large number of objects organized semantically into subfolders.) Lack of command line client interface for scripting at the time of version 8.4 (I had to write my own CLI.) TDV Studio does an absolutely horrible job with its own code editors when indentation is in place. Also, the editor is brutally slow and feature-poor. Tracking privileges on the level of table/view columns causes occasional problems when regranting. TDV's stored programs ("SQL scripts" in their own terminology) compiler leaves out many syntactic and semantic checks, making them hugely prone to run-time errors. TDV Server's REST API is a very poor (in terms of features) and flawed cousin to its SOAP API (at the time of version 8.4). Read full review Likelihood to Renew
It is useful for us to see the data and do analysis. Also we use it to generate reports and see trends or gather insights

It has a drag-and-drop feature and a good list of data adapters which makes it easy to thread across elements of various data sources.

We have never encountered issues where it was unavailable when we needed it.

TDV does integrate with a host of third-party apps such as BO/ Spotfire for reporting, Informatica for ETL, etc. However, if it can come up with its own suite of these products and combine features of TDV into a single robust Data Integration/ Analysis/ Reporting software, then it is more likely that people will want to explore the product more.

On a few occasions I have asked TIBCO technical support for help because I have adapted perfectly to their tools, but in those few that I have communicated with their technical team I have received personalized, attentive, responsible attention and I am always assisted by an expert staff the topic. A TIBCO technical support technician spent more than an hour helping me to solve a problem in the initial stage of implementation in my department and this is something that I always appreciate.

The training was helpful. I was able to understand how to use TIBCO for the data load process that we implemented and how to perform various troubleshooting steps based on the training I received. The technician was thorough and took the time to answer any questions. Once we were shown how to use TIBCO in the test environment, we were able to configure the production environment ourselves.

Other vendors have clearer, more visual implementation documentation. We also did not have our data architect and and server administrator available full-time for implementation. In the future, we will secure the necessary internal resources.

Presto is good for a templated design appeal. You cannot be too creative via this interface - but, the layout and options make the finalized visual product appealing to customers. The other design products I use are for different purposes and not really comparable to Presto.

We did not need to evaluate another technology in the same category for data virtualization, since we are 100% sure of the capabilities and benefits that we would have with TIBCO Data Virtualization, both for market positioning as well as success stories from other companies. great renown worldwide. From the first day of use, it meets our needs to provide the expected solutions.

It seems to be flexible and scalable based on our needs.
Read full review Return on Investment Presto has helped scale Uber's interactive data needs. We have migrated a lot out of proprietary tech like Vertica. Presto has helped build data driven applications on its stack than maintain a separate online/offline stack. Presto has helped us build data exploration tools by leveraging it's power of interactive and is immensely valuable for data scientists. Read full review We took spreadsheets that took hours a month to update and made them update automatically using TDV, saving hours a month of analyst time The incremental cost of TDV relative to straight spotfire licensing made it a no-brainer due to the ease of data management We continue to automate legacy business processes in TDV, saving time all over the organization.
