Cloud Data Integration Features

Read what people say are the most valuable features of the solutions they use.
Naresh Shetty says in a SEEBURGER BIS review
Integration Specialist at a logistics company with 10,001+ employees
It's been a good tool so far. It's helped us do things which we were not able to do. Most applications nowadays are third-party applications which require data in particular formats and there are restrictions on them. We can't modify third-party applications. The best we can do is use SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) to massage or reformat the data from one format to another and say, "Okay, if you want it this way you will get it this way." That's what SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) has been good at: communicating between two applications, changing formats and using the required protocols. Some might have applications which are very old and they can't do more than FTP or SFTP. With SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) we've got that flexibility. We can have one site communicating in an old FTP or SFTP style, or via file transfer. And with other applications, we could have API or a web service call or some other protocol used to send information. SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) acts as an intermediary between them.

Richard Lehane says in a SEEBURGER BIS review
Head of IT at a pharma/biotech company with 201-500 employees
The automation is the most valuable feature. We have full EDI automation through SEEBURGER BIS, which has been the biggest win for us. It removes the complexity and makes the process straightforward. We have additional ad hoc development costs, but those vary depending on if we're bringing on another third-party into our systems via the EDI integration. So, that's highly variable.

Michael Osiecki says in a SEEBURGER BIS review
Partner For Experience & E-Business at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
Among the most valuable features are the EDI translator and a lot of the components which enable creating compliance sets. Having something standard, out-of-the-box, and being able to use that has been a huge benefit for us. We came from a system, in the past, where we were having to manually create all that on our own, and it was very time-consuming and costly. Being able to do that out-of-the-box has been great. Another aspect that we employed in the last year-and-a-half has been their CMA platform component, which hooks to the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) front end. We've been able to set up an automatic testing process for our partners. They can walk through and test all their documents, in the sequence that our company would be expecting to pass and exchange them, without any interaction with someone in our company.

Lyon Lim says in a Workato review
Co-founder and CEO at a tech company with 11-50 employees
Ease of use: We had a very aggressive timeline to implement, therefore were looking for solutions that required minimal training to learn and use effectively. The trigger/action paradigm is fairly simple to understand. Additionally, the app connectors make it easy to get data from and post data to apps. I did not have to read any API documents or write any code. It was as simple as authorizing access to the app with my username and password. I could quickly build automations for some complex business processes by setting up a trigger event, followed by multiple steps which map to the sequence of logical actions in the business process. Even though I can write code, the recipe framework gave me the power and control I can get with code using an intuitive UI. The recipe also allowed quick iterations and testing to validate. In the end, the recipe reads like a series of simple sentences in English that describe what operations were being executed by the recipe. It was refreshing to see the combination of simplicity and power. Speed and Agility: We evaluated other solutions and services to fit the schedule and budget. However, the other solutions either required an architectural overhaul of our systems, which was expensive and not viable or it was building custom integrations by writing code which would have taken several months. With Workato, we could easily connect to our existing CRM and accounting apps in minutes. The ability to quickly connect to apps, build basic integrations, and validate flows was very empowering for the team. Further, as we iterated on the integrations to implement addition business rules to manage exceptions, the autoversioning in Workato ensured all our changes were tracked and allowed us to revert quickly without losing any work. Extensibility via HTTP connector: Although Workato has prebuilt connectors for 100s of apps, one of the third-party services we planned to use for data cleansing was not supported. This, however, did not block us as we could connect to the third-party APIs using an HTTP connector. It is a nice little feature that makes Workato very extensible and does not confine you to using it only for integrating with apps that have prebuilt connectors. As a business, we get a lot of customer requests to integrate our platform to their applications. Workato allows us to build a connector which allows all our customers to connect to their applications easily. Workflow Automation: Besides basic integration for syncing data across multiple apps, Workato also enabled us to automate workflows that map to business processes. One of the hidden features that we discovered was the ability to automate long running processes that need to wait for human input. For example, adding a note/attachment of agreement to a Salesforce opportunity. The Workato recipe waits until the human input step (adding attachment) is completed and moves to the next step. This helped us eliminate using emails or verbal conversations to track the attachment updates, thus accelerating the process to close opportunities. View full review »
Markus De Haan says in a Mule Anypoint Platform review
Self Employed/Independent at a consultancy
MuleSoft offers with the Anypoint Platform a unified platform for API management and an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) as well as an on-premise Enterprise Service Bus pattern. The iPaaS and API management are offered on CloudHub, MuleSoft's SaaS offering, and is located on Amazon Web Services. API management and the iPaaS run-time can also be deployed on-premise or in a private cloud. The run-time manager, Anypoint Runtime Manager (ARM), for monitoring and alerting on the run-time is located by default on CloudHub (AWS). The API management capabilities are very mature and allow an organization to re-use microservices. It enables efficient self-service for connecting (external) API consumers through Anypoint Exchange. The API Manager includes out-of-the-box policies that can be used for rate limiting, throttling, and security. The platform support High Availability, High Reliability and High Performance if the required patterns and network topology are followed. The platform offers over 200 standard connectors for applications and technology, such as HTTP(s), databases, SOAP, XML, and REST, as well as premium connectors for SAP, HL7, EDI, etc. Integrations are configured visually by dragging and dropping them on a canvas, but they do sometimes require some coding by Java, .NET or Groovy. The API management, iPaaS and on-premise ESB run-times are based on the same source code and allow an smooth in-time move to iPaaS, if desired, with minimal changes to the existing configuration and code. The recent Q3 2017 'Crowd' release of the platform included the flow designer, a browser based visual zero-code IDE for citizen integrators, and additional functionality for API management.

it_user628059 says in a Matillion ETL review
Senior Engineer, Big Data/Data-Warehousing at a manufacturing company with 501-1,000 employees
* It works well with AWS Redshift: I have used Informatica, SnapLogic, and Talend and they do not work well with Redshift. * Mid-pipeline data sampling: Without changes to pipelines, one can quickly and easily track down errors. * Automatic database-object verification: A fundamental part of how Matillion works is ensuring objects, tables, columns, views, and other metadata are ready and available for use if, and when, a pipeline is started. * Run-time parameters: These enable pipelines to be organized and modularized with minimum effort. * An array of source-data components: Pulling data from wide tables, such as SFDC, can be setup in seconds. Using Sqoop to pull data to S3, for example, can take hours or even weeks to get right. It is worth noting that Matillion does not cost more if you need more source-data components (SFDC, Marketo, Google AdWords, RDS, MongoDB, etc.). * A wide array of in-database DDLs and UDFs accessible from ETL are able to process unstructured data easily, without having to resort to EMR/Hadoop solutions. * Integration with other AWS services: It can use Amazon SQS or SNS very easily to extend capabilities, such as doing micro-batch imports (near real-time updates) from source-systems. * Python components using Boto and other libraries running on Matillion’s EC2: Matillion can push data from a data warehouse, via REST APIs, to target systems like DynamoDB and Marketo.

Sven Bernhardt says in an Oracle Integration Cloud Service review
Solution Architect at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
One of the most important features -- and, of course, the key differentiator -- is the newly-introduced on-premise agent, which allows users to connect Oracle ICS to their on-premise applications without opening application-specific ports in a company's firewall. The rapidly increasing number of adapters to connect to other cloud-based as well as on-premise applications is also very impressive, in conjunction with the consistent and predictable roadmap as well as the short release cycles (at least on a monthly basis). The platform becomes more and more mature. Through an easy-to-understand and intuitive user interface, the creation of system integrations can be done efficiently. View full review »
Venkat Mylavarapu says in a Dell Boomi AtomSphere review
Dell Boomi Integration Architect with 1-10 employees
Atmosphere is the most valuable feature as there are a lot of out of box connectors that expedited out integration process. This solution has a user-friendly interface and very good documentation with solutions that helped us in working with the tool efficiently. Creating and exposing the API was also easy with limited features and scope for enhancements. View full review »
MichaelSukachev says in a Mule Anypoint Platform review
Manager of Architecture and Software Development at XPerigo
There are a couple of valuable features in the product. API management is very useful. In general, the management of the application has been much better over time and it has improved a lot. The graphic interface became much better visually. Specifically, the monitoring capabilities are good because of the statistics and feedback it supplies. View full review »

AndrewHill says in a SEEBURGER BIS review
Integration Team Lead at Wincanton
Its flexibility is the most valuable feature. We can hook up using any protocol that's out there, to anybody. We've got a good in-house team that can work out with all the parts of it, including transformations for the bespoke processes that we sometimes need. We're not using half of its capabilities at the moment. We haven't hit the edges of it yet. We're not particularly leading edge, nor are most of our customers. View full review »
Reviewer98345 says in a SEEBURGER BIS review
IT Solutions Business Analyst Team Lead of Sales and Distribution at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
It does what it says it does, for us. We normally don't have many problems, so it's the reliability. And the message tracking is quite good, where we can go in and see if we have an issue. It's more having a query utility, rather than reporting, per se. We can query if we have issues or if something's wrong. But it's quite basic stuff. View full review »

Anton Haupt says in a Matillion ETL review
Solutions Architect at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
It's very intuitive and it's super fast once the data's in the cloud. It's simple and visual, as well. I was self-taught. It's so intuitive and easy to use you can actually just teach yourself how to use it. They also have very good support with their YouTube tutorials. Those show you how to do various things if you need help figuring out aspects of the solution. View full review »
