It depends product to product, but pricing is an issue.""Integration with the largest number of databases and other systems would be important.""Real-time has not been enhanced that much over the past few years. There has not been as many features added like they did before.""Informatica is very expensive in all aspects, so the pricing is something that could be improved.""I would like to have easier integration with cloud platforms.""Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,"
