Quotes From Members

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

Pros
Technical support, and their approach is good. They have a support portal and support tickets. If you open a ticket it has multiple levels of severity from level one to very high or critical.The features I find most valuable is that the solution is very user-friendly and the graphical design is very easy to understand.In the end, you have structured, proper data for use in an integrated BI solution.The performance and design of Informatica have been very valuable. I find the performance faster than, say, Oracle Data Integrator or DataStage.The partitioning and optimization to help enhance our development is a very valuable aspect of Informatica PowerCenter.Technical support is great. It's one of the reasons we really like them. When you compare support from IBM and support from Informatica, Informatica is much better.The most valuable features are the dynamic reading of the file metadata profile, and the ability to define business rules that are used to verify and validate the uploaded files.Informatica PowerCenter has been implementing mapping design, data flow, and workflow execution for years.

Cons
The licensing cost for Informatica is very high. Other all-in-one solutions have much lower prices than Informatica.I would like to see an improvement in the digital adoption.Integration with Artificial Intelligence would benefit this solution.As a connector to big data, it is not well developed. We've had problems connecting Informatica with Hadoop. The functionality to connect Informatica with Hadoop, for me it's not good.The multiple interfaces in Informatica PowerCenter are not great for the user experience. Because of this, I think it can cause confusion for any beginner developer.Now they are migrating to a new version, and they have something that is called Informatica Developer. Previously, they just had PowerCenter. Now, when they move everything to Informatica Developer it's not as good or stable like it was when it was PowerCenter, though it has some nice features. This Developer tool could be better.The developer tool documentation can be enhanced with a more clear explanation of each utility, accompanied by relevant examples, so that developers are able to create programs with ease.Integrated Reporting service should be more smoothly transitioned from view to function to be in sync with the main design.

This product has room for improvement in support of aviation. The interface could be improved in the next release.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Price-wise, it's more expensive than SSIS, but it's a better tool, so it has more features. Licensing is on a yearly basis.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.
