More Informatica Data Integration Hub Pros »

"We have found the PowerCenter and B2B data transformation most valuable.""It's a complete package, which is why we use this solution.""Complex transformations can be easily achieved by using PowerCenter. The processing layer does transformations and other things. About 80% of my transformations can be achieved by using the middle layer. For the remaining 15% to 20% transformations, I can go in and create stored procedures in the respective databases. Mapplets is the feature through which we can reuse transformations across pipelines. Transformations and caching are the key features that we have been using frequently. Informatica PowerCenter is one of the best solutions or products in the data integration space. We have extensively used PowerCenter for integration purposes. We usually look at the best bridge solution in our architecture so that it can sustain for maybe a couple of years. Usually, we go with the solution that fits best and has proven and time-tested technology.""If the systems get migrated or upgraded, the amount of resources required are very minimal. We can change the connections and establish a new connection. It's very helpful.""The number of docs has been reduced drastically, which is very good.""The most valuable features are the monitoring tools and the reporting manager.""It has helped us monetize.""Deployment was simple and straightforward."

Cons
"The initial setup was not very straightforward. Not complex, but not very simple either."

More Informatica Data Integration Hub Cons »

"Lacks ability to calculate cost of the product.""Integrating new tools can be tricky and challenging.""There is some room for improvement in terms of pricing.""Support could be better.""The solution can improve by providing more connectivity by having native ODBC or JDBC connections available. It will be easier and more people could start using it.""There is a need to buy a separate license if one wishes to connect with some kind of SAP system, such as SalesForce.""It would be nice to have all tools in one place. CDC needs more effort, as it's only easy to develop if you are familiar with Linux.""An issue which should be addressed is that the solution only allows us to do structured, as opposed to unstructured, data processing."
