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.
It reduces a lot of legacy coding.
It works with any multi-databases, so it works with Sybase, SQL Server. Also, the performance is really good and it is easy to use.
Reusable definition of data sources and the out-of-the-box availability of a large number maplets for common transformation functions.
Easy, scalable, robust platform to integrate heterogeneous source platform's data into the unified data warehouse.
UI-based ability to create data mapping.
Good product if you are trying implement data quality, data integration, and data management projects.
MuleSoft offers with the Anypoint Platform a unified platform for API management and an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) as well as an on-premise Enterprise Service Bus pattern.
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.
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.
MuleSoft's release calendar is rather conventional with two major, two minor releases and hotfixes in between. The competition sometimes offer more rapid release cycles and provides improved and new functionality with a faster time-to-market.
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.
Licensing can be complex as is the case with most iPaaS/cloud offerings.
