Informatica PowerCenter Review

Good performance, but it has issues with connecting to big data sources

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for data integration.

What is most valuable?

The performance and design of Informatica have been very valuable. I find the performance faster than, Oracle Data Integrator or DataStage.

What needs improvement?

As a connector to big data, it is not well developed. We've had problems connecting Informatica with Hadoop. The functionality to connect Informatica with Hadoop is not good. Right now, we use Informatica to connect with the tools of big data. We have been able to connect Informatica with Teradata. I use Informatica to integrate the data of Teradata. Although we have a lot of functionality in Teradata, when you use Informatica as a connector, the compatibility with Teradata and Informatica it's not sufficient.

In future releases, they need to have a good version of the cloud.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for five years.

What other advice do I have?

We run the solution on our servers, not the cloud.

I would rate this solution seven out of ten.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
