How has it helped my organization?

It helped in managing the data from different sources into one unique target.

What needs improvement?

In the reporting tool, I would like to see what code it generates. As of now, there is no provision to see the underlying code of the PRD file.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for one year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There have been no issues with deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There have been no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There have been no issues scaling it.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I have not had to use the customer service.

Technical Support:

I have not had to use technical support.

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

There was no other solution in place.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward and became complex later to our understanding of the existing structure and the use of the ETL to align with those.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house. You need to have a good understanding of what the tool can offer like ETL, MDM, ans SCDs.

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

We're using the free edition.

What other advice do I have?

It's moderate to use, learn, and implement. It's nice and you should use it.
