Informatica PowerCenter Review

Good performance with easy to use interface; good documentation provided

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is for building data warehouses for clients with data visualization tools. We need to pull data from other sources so we use Informatica as the ETL. The solution is generally deployed on-prem but sometimes on cloud. 

What is most valuable?

The solution provides good performance with an easy to use interface and reasonable documentation.

What needs improvement?

One of the things that I found lacking is that there should be some sort of a calculator where you can input your requirements regarding the number of data switches required, number of users, and the number of data switches in order to get a general idea of cost. It would save me time rather than having to run to the company to get the information. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stabl. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable solution. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't had any issues with technical support. 

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

This is an expensive solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
