Pros
"The user interface is very good. It makes me feel very comfortable when I am using the tool.""From what we have seen so far, the solution seems very stable.""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 is a complete ETL Solution.""From my experience so far, the best feature is the ability to copy data to any environment. We have 100 connects and we can connect them to the system and copy the data from its respective system to any environment. That is the best feature.""It is easy to deploy workflows and schedule jobs.""On the tool itself, we've never experienced any bugs or glitches. There haven't been crashes. Stability has been good."

Cons
"The solution should offer better integration with Azure machine learning. We should be able to embed the cognitive services from Microsoft, for example as a web API. It should allow us to embed Azure machine learning in a more user-friendly way.""The solution needs to integrate more with other providers and should have a closer integration with Oracle BI.""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 product could provide more ways to import and export data.""The Microsoft documentation is too complicated.""The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved.""The setup and configuration process could be simplified.""If the user interface was more user friendly and there was better error feedback, it would be helpful."
