Azure Data Factory Review

Complete solution with good interface, workflow, and ease of use

What is most valuable?

The features that I've found most valuable, in order: That it is a complete ETL Solution, the second one is interface, the third one workflow, and the fourth one ease of use.

What needs improvement?

The only thing that we're struggling with is increasing the competency of my team. So we think that the Microsoft documentation is too complicated.

I would like to see it more connected. I know they're working on the Snowflake data warehouse connector, but more connectors would be helpful.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Azure Data Factory for a few months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Azure Data Factory is a scalable solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

In terms of support, we haven't used the direct support but the community support is very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used the Oracle Warehouse Builder. The reasons we stopped using it were that Warehouse Builder is at the end of its life-cycle and its slow performance.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is complex.

What about the implementation team?

We first implemented it ourselves but we're using a partner now. We thought we could do it ourselves but we needed specialty help.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I would highly recommend Azure Data Factory as it has proof of concept.

What other advice do I have?

We have nine people using Azure Data Factory.

On a scale of one to ten, I give it an eight.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
