Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Good interface, reasonable documentation.""Ease and speed of building integrations, especially integrations between different applications, such as our Hospital Information System.""The partitioning and optimization to help enhance our development is a very valuable aspect of Informatica PowerCenter.""The most valuable feature is the new Data Lake feature, which provides the basic capabilities needed.""The most complex task, in this case, was to read and transform BLOB data, and Java transformation in Informatica Power Center was a great solution.""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."

More Informatica PowerCenter Pros »

"It's highly scalable. It takes upon itself the Redshift scalability, so it's very good.""It has improved the costs of managing my customer’s data.""It takes less than five minutes to set up and delivers results. It is much quicker than traditional ETL technologies.""It is pretty user-friendly, even for people who aren't super technical.""It has good integrations with Amazon Redshift and other AWS services.""We allow non-technical people to use Matillion to load data into our data warehouse for reporting. Thus, it is easy enough to use that we don't always have to get a technical person involved in setting up a data movement (ETL).""It has helped us to get onto the cloud quickly.""The technical support treats us well. They already have a support portal, and they are responsive, which helps."

Cons
"Lacks ability to calculate cost of the product.""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.""I found it is kind of weird that not all of the mapping changes are treated as true changes.""Include more instruments for LOGs analysis, interpretation, and job corrections.""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."

More Informatica PowerCenter Cons »

"Ideally, I would like it to integrate with Secrets Manager as well as the AWS.""It needs integration with more data sources.""Going forward, I would like them to add custom jobs, since we still have to run these outside of Matillion.""In the next release, we would like to have connections to more databases.""To complete the pipeline, they might want to include some connectors which would put the data into different platforms. This would be helpful.""Performance can be improved for efficiency, and it can be made faster.""While the UI is good, it could be improved in its efficiency and made easier to use."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Its maintenance is expensive.""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."

More Informatica PowerCenter Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The solution is very cheap. You're paying $2.50 an hour and if you set your service up, which you can do, you're not getting charged. Currently, our ETL process is just an overnight process that runs for about an hour. I can start and stop my server just for an hour if I want to and spent $2.50 a day for an ETL solution. There are no additional costs.""The AWS pricing and licensing are a cost-effective solution for data integration needs.""It was procured through the AWS Marketplace because it keeps things simple. They offer retail-like checkout and bill through your existing Amazon Web Services account.""Purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace is pretty convenient. There is a little bit of back and forth in terms of the licensing based on the machine size, but it seems to have worked out well. it is convenient to have it all as part of our AWS billing.""It is not necessarily a cheap solution. However, it's reasonable priced, especially with the smaller machines that we run it on.""The prices needs to be lower.""It was very easy to purchase through the AWS Marketplace, but it was also expensive.""I have heard from my manager and other higher ups, "This product is cheaper than other things on the market," and they have done the research."
