Informatica PowerCenter Review

A scalable solution with a good interface that's easy to set up

What is most valuable?

The stability of the solution is one of its best features. The user interface is also very good.

What needs improvement?

The cost and set up of the licenses could be improved. You need a lot of different licenses, depending on your setup, and it gets expensive. For example, we're connected with Oracle, be we need licenses for that plus the core server, Terradata, etc. It gets costly.

There's also a feature that exists on IBM DataStage called CDC. It's not on Informatica PowerCenter, but if they could add a feature similar to this in the next release, it would be useful.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for nine years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is easy to scale the solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

I don't get in touch with technical support very often, but I would rate them as medium in their level of efficiency in dealing with issues. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises version of the solution.

I'm a consultant, and I largely work with enterprises.

I would recommend the product for integration. It's one of the best tools in the integration field.

I would rate this solution nine out of ten.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
