We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The solution has improved the time it takes to perform tasks related to batch applications.""The product is a stable and powerful data management solution that can run in parallel mode for enhanced speed.""The most valuable feature is the ability to transfer information via notes.""DataStage works better with Linux operating systems when the application services are hosted on Linux system equipment, but it's powerful on Windows too.""The data lineage report can be filtered for reporting. The reports are user-friendly and take less time to find what you need.""The ETL tools are probably the most valuable feature. It has an IBM tool, a friendly UI and it makes things more comfortable.""The most valuable feature is the product's versatility to inject data.""Finding logs is very easy on the solution."

"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."

Cons
"The solution should be more user-friendly.""The interface needs work to be more user-friendly.""The documentation and in-application help for this solution need to be improved, especially for new features.""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.""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.""Reduced cost would allow more customers to choose the product. It's quite expensive in relation to the cost of other similar solutions.""The interface needs improvement. It is really too technical. That is the main problem.""The template mapping could be easier."

"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."

Top Answer: It's a good tool. It has the ability to take apart and install whatever we need. It's very good for data, transformation, and loading.
Top Answer: We don't get continuous replication of the data. This is something that should be improved. Other competitors have it but for this solution continuous replication is lagging.
