Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Data Virtualization

TIBCO Data Virtualization is available to all of our organizations. TIBCO Data Virtualization is used by most of our organizations to bring multiple data into one reporting solution. TIBCO Data Virtualization allows us to pull data from many different sources in many different locations and create the reporting requirements that are needed by our various business departments.
  • Use different data repositories in one solution.
  • Use of analytics tools by end users.
  • Use of SQL so users don't have to learn a new scripting language.
  • Unable to find a way to run a scheduled report to be saved to another location.
  • High cost compared to other solutions.
  • Tool is a bit difficult to learn.
  • Better ability to create reports/dashboards from many sources in one location.
  • Allows ability for better decision making when able to review various data in one reporting tool.
  • A bit expensive so need to crunch the numbers to see if it is worth the cost.
I was not involved in the purchasing decision of TIBCO Data Virtualization. TIBCO Data Virtualization does provide us with a good reporting tool that can access various data sources in order to review the analytics and make future decisions. It can be used on-premise or in the cloud. It is robust and can pull data quickly to generate the various reports and dashboards needed.
Customer support for TIBCO Data Virtualization is very responsive and helpful. They are courteous and quick to assist.
We need to forecast business decisions and have many different data sources that are used across our organization. We need to pull the data into one location for many business users to access. The data changes quite frequently so it was imperative to be able to update the data quickly without much user intervention as the data changed. TIBCO Data Virtualization is able to pull the data in and update the reports and dashboards with the new data seamlessly. Without TIBCO Data Virtualization it would take so much more time to gather the data from multiple sources, analyze the data, and create the reports to disseminate to the decision-makers.
Data virtualization is very insightful. It can be used to create various "what if" scenarios. It is handy to be able to access data from multiple sources in one location that is readily available. It improves business outcomes and drives innovation. We are able to view the data virtually and able to modify data to analyze the impact to our business.

Do you think TIBCO Data Virtualization delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Yes

Did TIBCO Data Virtualization live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of TIBCO Data Virtualization go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy TIBCO Data Virtualization again?

Yes

If your organization is large, has many different data sources, and has the budget then TIBCO Data Virtualization may be the solution for you. The TIBCO Data Virtualization tool does take some time to learn. If your organization is smaller with a lower budget then there may be a better solution for you. We also need reports automatically generated on a periodic basis and saved to another location (such as our electronic document management system) but we aren't sure if/how this can be accomplished using TIBCO Data Virtualization.
