Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I am impressed by the solution's interface.""We are able to set rules, establish a data quality management platform, and monitor the quality.""The solution is applicable for both technical and business users.""Seeing the data in the mapping itself is really nice.""It is very useful for testing purposes and designing mappings for small projects. If you go for IDQ in the mapping itself, you can see the data. You can then correct it, and test it so easily. It is working fine. It is also stable, scalable, and easy to deploy.""The user interface is flexible and the visibility of the data flow is amazing."

Cons
"Informatica is very expensive.""I would like to see better visuals for business users, such as a dashboard where they can precisely track where problems are.""The ability of the product to leverage the power of big data could be improved.""Although we are very satisfied with the design of the UI, executing tasks with it can be difficult.""It can be improved in terms of performance and execution. I'm expecting better performance. It currently has some restrictions in terms of execution. For example, if we want to run it in the command mode and execute it, there are some restrictions, and we are facing some issues with a huge volume of data. These restrictions are not there in Informatica PowerCenter because we are able to execute a huge volume of data, and there are more ways to execute it.""The tool's performance is an area that should be given further consideration."
