More ELK Kibana Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the new Data Lake feature, which provides the basic capabilities needed.""The partitioning and optimization to help enhance our development is a very valuable aspect of Informatica PowerCenter.""Ease and speed of building integrations, especially integrations between different applications, such as our Hospital Information System.""Good interface, reasonable documentation.""The most valuable features are the metadata repository and the data warehouse application console.""What I like the most is that we have to deal with less while writing the queries.""If the systems get migrated or upgraded, the amount of resources required are very minimal.

Cons
"Security could be improved thereby avoiding the necessity of a third party plugin."

More ELK Kibana Cons »

"I found it is kind of weird that not all of the mapping changes are treated as true changes.""The multiple interfaces in Informatica PowerCenter are not great for the user experience. Because of this, I think it can cause confusion for any beginner developer.""Lacks ability to calculate cost of the product.""The only problem with this product is the level of complexity with the number of levels of transformation that you have to go through.""I would like to see it be able to import data from NoSQL.""We need another tool for monitoring. It would be easier if all the features were consolidated into one tool.""The documentation could be improved.""Requires an established data center because there is no option for software as a service."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Its maintenance is expensive.""It's much more expensive, almost three times more expensive than most other solutions.""We are satisfied with the pricing.""I consider this to be an expensive product.""It is for big enterprises. We have leveraged Informatica for big enterprises but not for small and medium enterprises because it is a very costly product as compared to other products. We propose this solution only for enterprise customers. For small to medium enterprises, we would propose the Microsoft solution. Its licensing is currently bundle-wise. It should be features-wise and not bundle-wise.""The price of this solution is high.""Our client has purchased the license, and we are using it.""The solution is in the middle price range compared to other solutions."
