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."

"API management.""This is the easiest and best tool available.""I have found several things most valuable, including its very quick implementation that you can use a lot of out of the box templates, and lastly that it is a very mature product, especially in hybrid integration.""The monitoring capabilities of this product are very good because of the feedback it supplies in statistics.""The solution's market place for different kinds of integration platforms is the most valuable feature.""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."

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."

"Lacks intelligent management data and intelligent mappings.""Mule should have better B2B integration.""An on-premise setup requires special skills and you need a lot of professional services.""The runtime management and connectors could use some work and are vulnerable to breakage after upgrades.""Technical support needs to be improved, especially when you need help with more technical aspects of the solution.""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
"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."
