Pros
It is easy to deploy workflows and schedule jobs.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 a complete ETL Solution.Powerful but easy-to-use and intuitive.The most valuable features are data transformations.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.From what we have seen so far, the solution seems very stable.The user interface is very good.

It's highly scalable. It takes upon itself the Redshift scalability, so it's very good.It has improved the costs of managing my customer’s data.It takes less than five minutes to set up and delivers results. It is much quicker than traditional ETL technologies.It is pretty user-friendly, even for people who aren't super technical.It has good integrations with Amazon Redshift and other AWS services.We allow non-technical people to use Matillion to load data into our data warehouse for reporting. Thus, it is easy enough to use that we don't always have to get a technical person involved in setting up a data movement (ETL).It has helped us to get onto the cloud quickly.The technical support treats us well. They already have a support portal, and they are responsive, which helps.

Cons
The setup and configuration process could be simplified.The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved.The Microsoft documentation is too complicated.The product could provide more ways to import and export data.The speed and performance need to be improved.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 solution needs to integrate more with other providers and should have a closer integration with Oracle BI.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.

Ideally, I would like it to integrate with Secrets Manager as well as the AWS.It needs integration with more data sources.Going forward, I would like them to add custom jobs, since we still have to run these outside of Matillion.In the next release, we would like to have connections to more databases.To complete the pipeline, they might want to include some connectors which would put the data into different platforms. This would be helpful.Performance can be improved for efficiency, and it can be made faster.While the UI is good, it could be improved in its efficiency and made easier to use.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This is a cost-effective solution.Our licensing fees are approximately 15,000 ($150 USD) per month.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.

The solution is very cheap. You're paying $2.50 an hour and if you set your service up, which you can do, you're not getting charged. Currently, our ETL process is just an overnight process that runs for about an hour. I can start and stop my server just for an hour if I want to and spent $2.50 a day for an ETL solution. There are no additional costs.The AWS pricing and licensing are a cost-effective solution for data integration needs.It was procured through the AWS Marketplace because it keeps things simple. They offer retail-like checkout and bill through your existing Amazon Web Services account.Purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace is pretty convenient. There is a little bit of back and forth in terms of the licensing based on the machine size, but it seems to have worked out well. it is convenient to have it all as part of our AWS billing.It is not necessarily a cheap solution. However, it's reasonable priced, especially with the smaller machines that we run it on.The prices needs to be lower.It was very easy to purchase through the AWS Marketplace, but it was also expensive.I have heard from my manager and other higher ups, "This product is cheaper than other things on the market," and they have done the research.
