We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I have worked with DB2's great features in the last five years. The IDAA feature transformed the vision of warehousing, business analytics, and big data at my bank. Besides the mainframe, I saw that this solution was evolutionary. It gives real-time information."
"A helpful feature for us is the integration with NoSQL databases."
"We have contacted their technical support. They are great. They offer very professional help. If I need some technical answer, they are very professional. They are quick, professional, and very accurate."
"The initial setup was quite straightforward. The deployment took between two and three days."
"You can use Talend as a stand-alone application without customization to collect data and generate reports over dashboards. It's got great functionality."
"This solution has improved our overall time to value for data ingestion."
"The drag-and-drop feature in the interface is very good."
"Talend Studio has the ability to use it to ensure data quality."
"We're sold on the customization part of the solution."
"DB2 is a hard tool to grasp. It's hard for users to learn how to use it. It's not easy to see how it works."
"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."
"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."
"There are many versions available and one is open-sourced which is free."
