Cons
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trying to improve it with partitions to gpload, but we were told that we can't go more than four partitions.The UI is outdated and old-fashioned, at least in our current version.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
Cost could be improved.We have found the pricing very cost-effective. The licensing is CPU and data source-based.

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.
