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.""The most valuable features are data transformations.""Powerful but easy-to-use and intuitive."

Cons
"The thing we missed most was data update, but this is now available as of two weeks ago.""In the next release, it's important that some sort of scheduler for running tasks is added.""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 speed and performance need to be improved.""The product could provide more ways to import and export data.""The Microsoft documentation is too complicated."

More Azure Data Factory Cons »

"Scheduling of jobs in the sequence is not available. It's a very tedious process to do that particular task. If there was a tool to schedule in the sequence that would be extremely helpful.""The description of error messages isn't extensive, although they point to the problem. With other solutions, like Talend, I was able to use the debugger to get directly to the problem, but with SAP Data Services the debugger is not working. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the version specifically, but I'm using it in an enterprise environment and I can't do an upgrade.""The initial setup is complex.""Newer feature integration is lagging behind the company acquisitions and the product could do more to service a broader range of devices.""Integration with other products could be improved.""The solution should offer more machine learning and automation.""The pricing of the solution should be improved.""The interface is not quite user-friendly and is in need of improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""Our licensing fees are approximately 15,000 ($150 USD) per month.""This is a cost-effective solution.""The price you pay is determined by how much you use it.""Understanding the pricing model for Data Factory is quite complex.""I would not say that this product is overly expensive."

More Azure Data Factory Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is good, there is no problem.""The pricing is a little high to make the product more competetive in the marketplace.""Its pricing is as per the enterprise agreement and not a concern for us."
