    Informatica PowerCenter is very good for integrating a huge amount of data in a very short duration, such as a minute. It is also very easy to use. After you provide the source and the target, mappings are automatically done, which makes it easy to use for the development team.

    The most valuable feature is the mobile platform.Time-saving efficiencies have translated into genuine bottom-line improvements via the reduction in FTE.
  5. One feature which I have found to be very interesting is the Beast manager, where you can create calculated fields. They are shared in one common repository so someone else can use the same calculated fields; they don't have to rewrite or reinvent the APIs.
  6. The product is easily customized.The AI/ML enablement is useful, as many reporting tools do not offer machine learning models as of now, without writing customized code.
  7. The optimization and flexibility of visualization tools. Having a tool where you can find logs that were generated months ago, and being able to search over a long period of time, is great.

  9. The Layers feature organizes my work and makes it easier, instead of having to use scripting to show and hide when drilling down.
  10. The deployment of our solution across a number of servers using Ingres .NET has meant that we can protect the database server behind a highly secure firewall and deploy the front end solutions on a normal web server.

There are so many data science platforms to choose from. Which platform would you recommend to enterprise-level companies that want flexible and powerful data visualization capabilities to drill down into the data? What makes the solution that you recommend a better choice than others?

Need to address basic data issues, e.g., quality, standardization and security, and MDM first, to obtain meaningful data visualization and single entity views, e.g., customer, patient and product. Ideally, a visualization tool should be able to interact with a backend actionable data catalog driven by data virtualization/federation either directly or through data provisioning. Power BI, QlikView and Tableau are excellent standard data visualization tools. Cambridge Intelligence's KeyLines is an excellent interactive graph visualization tool.

In my case, I can recommend Power BI, that works very well with a lot of database. It shows very good visualization graphs that allows to create many dashboards easily and connect with many data sources that can work very good to present, share and compare data thought the company and with users.

We have been using Qlik Sense for the past 2 years and purchased but never really used Qlik View before that. We have used excel extensively and seen demos and tried Power BI and looked at demos for a couple of other BI tools.


We settled on using Qlik Sense as our Reporting, BI and Analytics tool due a very successful proof of concept delivered by our Qlik consultants.


Qlik Sense gives us the ability to visualize our data in various ways from simple bar and line charts or combined to scatter plots, mekko charts, funnel chart, pie charts, gauge charts and KPI items. Visualization options include table and pivot table that can be utilized to display detailed data. Visualizations also include a map chart that can be used to visualize various map layers with to display movement, density, are and points. 
This has been extremely valuable being from a logistics company.


I would therefore recommend Qlik Sense for the best visualization capabilities.

QlikSense. The associative analytics engine makes it kind of child's play to combine multi-source data and in combination with the augmented intelligence features QlikSense helps to create analytics and visualizations faster.
