Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Data Factory itself is great. It's pretty straightforward. You can easily add sources, join and lookup information, etc. The ease of use is pretty good.""Powerful but easy-to-use and intuitive.""It has built-in connectors for more than 100 sources and onboarding data from many different sources to the cloud environment.""Its integrability with the rest of the activities on Azure is most valuable.""The security of the agent that is installed on-premises is very good.""The solution can scale very easily.""It is a complete ETL Solution.""Azure Data Factory's most valuable features are the packages and the data transformation that it allows us to do, which is more drag and drop, or a visual interface. So, that eases the entire process."

"Performance and flexibility-wise, they're very user-friendly."

Cons
"If the user interface was more user friendly and there was better error feedback, it would be helpful.""The need to work more on developing out-of-the-box connectors for other products like Oracle, AWS, and others.""On the UI side, they could make it a little more intuitive in terms of how to add the radius components. Somebody who has been working with tools like Informatica or DataStage gets very used to how the UI looks and feels.""The speed and performance need to be improved.""You cannot use a custom data delimiter, which means that you have problems receiving data in certain formats.""The solution needs to be more connectable to its own services.""Integration of data lineage would be a nice feature in terms of DevOps integration. It would make implementation for a company much easier. I'm not sure if that's already available or not. However, that would be a great feature to add if it isn't already there.""There is always room to improve. There should be good examples of use that, of course, customers aren't always willing to share. It is Catch-22. It would help the user base if everybody had really good examples of deployments that worked, but when you ask people to put out their good deployments, which also includes me, you usually got, "No, I'm not going to do that." They don't have enough good examples. Microsoft probably just needs to pay one of their partners to build 20 or 30 examples of functional Data Factories and then share them as a user base."

"The initial setup was not very straightforward. Not complex, but not very simple either."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price you pay is determined by how much you use it.""The licensing is a pay-as-you-go model, where you pay for what you consume.""Understanding the pricing model for Data Factory is quite complex.""Our licensing fees are approximately 15,000 ($150 USD) per month.""I would not say that this product is overly expensive.""It's not particularly expensive.""The licensing cost is included in the Synapse.""In terms of licensing costs, we pay somewhere around S14,000 USD per month. There are some additional costs. For example, we would have to subscribe to some additional computing and for elasticity, but they are minimal."
