Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The solution has a good interface and the integration with GitHub is very useful.""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.""The most valuable features are data transformations.""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."

Cons
"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.""The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved."

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."
