We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The ease of usability is the most valuable feature. It's very easy and quick to set up. It also has a central hub as opposed to GoldenGate which is one direct interface. For GoldenGate I would have needed three interfaces whereas with HVR I have a central interface that manages everything."
"The solution is stable. We've never faced any stability issues."
"The compare feature is the most valuable piece of it."
"I think Talend is one of the easiest tools for faster implementation compared to other tools."
"Talend Studio has the ability to connect to almost anything to integrate data from files, databases, web services, etc."
"The basic tools are easy to pick up and understand."
"They're very competitive in terms of performance, which is a good selling point. It has very rich features. It provides a very rich feature set in the application."
"The most valuable feature is integration."
"The features that I like the most are the simplicity of the interface, and the ability to quickly develop with a predefined component."
"I like the way that you can use the context variables, and how you can work those context variables to give you values and settings for every development environment, such as PROD, TEST, and DEV."
"I would like for them to incorporate additional transformations. A valuable aspect of the product is that it does inflight transformations and that could be expanded."
"The interface needs to be more user-friendly."
"The documentation can be laid out better to make it easier to find things, and I really wish there was built-in support for changing passwords. Some features don't work as advertised for the platform/repository database, and HVR is not always the fastest at getting results."
"The stability is good, but the performance is slower when I work on a huge amount of data."
"The documentation from version to version could be more accurate."
"Once you get past the basic tools, it gets pretty complicated."
"Including either XML or JSON in the next release would definitely be a good transformation. I'm not sure if Talend has that feature, but it's one of those requirements that we are working around and have to do some parsing of XML so this could make it easier."
"Performance and speed could be improved."
"They lack in memory capacity."
"I would like to sync a project and do an upload from that current version, and then from GitLab, be able to download the latest one."
"I don't have the exact information, but I know it is high, and it is on a yearly basis. There is no additional cost for what we're doing. We're always open to doing things cheaper, so we might potentially implement a different solution."
"License renewal is on a yearly basis."
"The pricing is a little higher than what I had expected, but it's comparable with I-PASS competitors."
