Cons
The template mapping could be easier.The interface needs improvement. It is really too technical. That is the main problem.Reduced cost would allow more customers to choose the product. It's quite expensive in relation to the cost of other similar solutions.We would be happy to see in next versions the ability to return several parameters from jobs. Now, jobs can return just one parameter. If they could return several parameters, that would be great.I really like this tool, but the administration should be on the same client application because a lot of administration features are not on the client-side, and they usually need to have administrative access. It's quite complicated to force IT teams to have separate administrative access from the developers.The documentation and in-application help for this solution need to be improved, especially for new features.The interface needs work to be more user-friendly.The solution should be more user-friendly.

I would also like to have profiling functionalities and quality transformations in the cloud.One area that needs to improve is the user experience because it is very complex. The trial version is very complex so it's not easy to start using the program immediately. You must study the rules first.I would like to see more functionality added so that it is a bit closer to how much you can do with Informatica PowerCenter.The biggest challenge I see is the IDE's for the cloud and automization are different.
