Jitterbit provides the ability to quickly map data between files and databases.It is very easy to build integrations and processes to pull and push data.The fluid user interface (probably the most user friendly interface, when compared to its competitors).Easy integration with SalesforceIntegrity, ease of use, user-friendly user interface, and errorless logs are the most valuable features.Jitterbit handles the most lines of data in a .csv and loads the quickest of any data loader I have tried.The Cloud Console for monitoring and troubleshooting data operations.It runs like an appliance and has tremendous throughput.

Cons
Integrated Reporting service should be more smoothly transitioned from view to function to be in sync with the main design.The initial setup is not straightforward. You need expertise to do it.While Informatica is great for data-integration, it does not have any analytics features. Thus, organizations have to always look for another product for their BI needs.There can be scalability issues. Huge amounts of data ingestion will impact performance.We had stability issues, mostly with JVM size.We had to take on a large volume of data from the legacy Sybase system. This was taking a very long time, i.e., more than a day. We were trying to improve it with partitions to gpload, but we were told that we can't go more than four partitions.The UI is outdated and old-fashioned, at least in our current version. Also, we have experienced some stability issues with the Workflow Monitor application.

Looping through complex data structures can be difficult.I would like the ability to offer a dedicated cloud version for security.In the past few months, there have been some server downtimes during work hours that have affected some critical scheduled integrations.There were some bugs in the product. For example if you run a delete query and test, it deletes the actual data.Sometimes we experience disconnections and I have to close all Jitterbit programs.I know with Salesforce updating the UI like they did, it slowed it down a lot.Sometimes additional connectors are needed.You need to have some development skills or hire a Jitterbit engineer to make changes.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.Cost could be improved.We have found the pricing very cost-effective. The licensing is CPU and data source-based.

The Jitterbit price is based upon endpoints. They also offer ERP connectors with their Enterprise editionJitterbit was extremely cost effective for us compared to other options.I do believe Jitterbit has one of the better pricing and licensing options out there compared to its competitors.The added bonus is that Jitterbit doesn't charge for any data volume/traffic.Each business needs to determine if it is a mission critical aspect.
