Previous Solutions

There was no other solution in place.

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.

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.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

We're using the free edition.

Other Advice

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