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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the building of mockups and tasks.""The program is stable and scalable.""The features I find most valuable is the synchronization, verification, functionalities and all the data integration features.""The user interface which is very easy to use if we have any problems to solve.""I do a quite a lot of data transformations, and the fact that I can do them without changing any of my SQL queries from the code, using the inbuilt tools, is very helpful.""Whether we need data cleansing or data mastering, we get it all in one platform.""The solution's initial setup is quite straightforward.""Their new licensing is very flexible. With Informatica Cloud, you have plenty of items under the same umbrella, such as services, offerings, data quality, and data masking. You have also got master data management and API management. What I really like about them is that you don't need to go to Informatica and say that you need a data integration module. You would say that you need iPaaS or Informatica Cloud. They'll then try to understand your needs and give you IPUs, which are the processing units. If I purchased a hundred IPUs from Informatica as a customer, I can use 70 IPUs for data integration. I would also need data quality, so I can use 10 IPUs for data quality. I can use the remaining 20 IPUs for API management. Down the line, if I see that my initial data integration needs for the development phase are met, then out of the 70 IPUs assigned for data integration, I can use 30 IPUs for data masking. I can shuffle these numbers in any way within the Informatica Cloud umbrella for the tenure for which I have subscribed to these IPUs. I can use all services the way I want. This flexibility is what I really love about Informatica. It also has got good connectors."

Cons
"I would like to see more functionality added so that it is a bit closer to how much you can do with Informatica PowerCenter.""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 also like to have profiling functionalities and quality transformations in the cloud.""A general improvement in icons and the virtual interface would be good.""I would like to see support for more data sources.""Connectivity could be improved, it can be a little slow.""There may be some types of limitations with the performance.""The regions in which the data resides are still limited. This could be an issue in terms of the data residency laws of some of the countries. They should get more regions."
