The partitioning and optimization to help enhance our development is a very valuable aspect of Informatica PowerCenter.The most valuable feature is the new Data Lake feature, which provides the basic capabilities needed.The most complex task, in this case, was to read and transform BLOB data, and Java transformation in Informatica Power Center was a great solution.Technical support, and their approach is good. They have a support portal and support tickets. If you open a ticket it has multiple levels of severity from level one to very high or critical.The features I find most valuable is that the solution is very user-friendly and the graphical design is very easy to understand.In the end, you have structured, proper data for use in an integrated BI solution.The performance and design of Informatica have been very valuable. I find the performance faster than, say, Oracle Data Integrator or DataStage.Technical support is great. It's one of the reasons we really like them. When you compare support from IBM and support from Informatica, Informatica is much better.

Cons
A general improvement in icons and the virtual interface would be good.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.

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.I found it is kind of weird that not all of the mapping changes are treated as true changes.Include more instruments for LOGs analysis, interpretation, and job corrections.The licensing cost for Informatica is very high. Other all-in-one solutions have much lower prices than Informatica.I would like to see an improvement in the digital adoption.Integration with Artificial Intelligence would benefit this solution.As a connector to big data, it is not well developed. We've had problems connecting Informatica with Hadoop. The functionality to connect Informatica with Hadoop, for me it's not good.Now they are migrating to a new version, and they have something that is called Informatica Developer. Previously, they just had PowerCenter. Now, when they move everything to Informatica Developer it's not as good or stable like it was when it was PowerCenter, though it has some nice features. This Developer tool could be better.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Price-wise, it's more expensive than SSIS, but it's a better tool, so it has more features. Licensing is on a yearly basis.Licensing is a one time cost. But maintenance costs depend on what you want, how long you need it. Maintenance is a kind of insurance. With health insurance, you don't know whether you will get sick or need to go to hospital or not but you have to have insurance. It's the same thing with support. If you have that expertise in resolving issues, if you have enough experience in your IT department, I would say you don't need the support. But in practice, they recommend you go with the support. If you want support you have to pay for it.
