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."

"The price for Talend Data Integration should be less expensive.""If I compare Open Studion to other solutions, their interface is robust but not so fancy looking. This is an area that could use improvement. I would like to see an updated interface.""The profiling perspective needs improvement. Instead of using it in the studio, we are using a different tool which is also provided by Talend. It's redundant.""There used to be many Youtube channels that offered Talend training, but now there don't seem to be any. The solution should offer more online training resources.""Inter-version compatibility is a problem, and migration projects between versions are required.""Having additional training materials, such as a video tutorial, would be an improvement.""The technical support and documentation need a lot of work to come up to standard.""It gets the job done but it's a bit slow."

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."

"Talend is free and you can download it.""The paid version of this solution has a very high price, but even with the limitations, the Community version works fine.""Price could be lower. It is getting too expensive when compared to some other solutions, which is actually a little bit concerning."

Top Answer: It's a good tool. It has the ability to take apart and install whatever we need. It's very good for data, transformation, and loading.
