Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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 performance and design of Informatica have been very valuable. I find the performance faster than, say, Oracle Data Integrator or DataStage.""In the end, you have structured, proper data for use in an integrated BI solution.""The features I find most valuable is that the solution is very user-friendly and the graphical design is very easy to understand.""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 most complex task, in this case, was to read and transform BLOB data, and Java transformation in Informatica Power Center was a great solution.""The most valuable feature is the new Data Lake feature, which provides the basic capabilities needed."

"It's very easy to get started on the solution. It's also easy to maintain, scale, and integrate according to cost factors.""The most important part would be the use of connectors. The significant number of cloud connectors available for active integration is its value.""The lack of features in something like Oracle Integration Cloud leaves some room for leads implementation partners like us""The most valuable feature is the ease of customization.""The out-of-box integration between Oracle and SAP is really beneficial"

Cons
"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.""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.""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.""Integration with Artificial Intelligence would benefit this solution.""I would like to see an improvement in the digital adoption.""The licensing cost for Informatica is very high. Other all-in-one solutions have much lower prices than Informatica.""Include more instruments for LOGs analysis, interpretation, and job corrections.""I found it is kind of weird that not all of the mapping changes are treated as true changes."

"Oracle-based automation blueprints for the majority of the integrations would be helpful to have in a future release.""Now the platform is not built in a way that you can define.""They need to make tools framework available for implementation partners""Our client was quite concerned about the cost, which is something that could be reduced.""The solution doesn't currently have a fully fledged workflow feature like they have in OIM."

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.""Its maintenance is expensive.""It's much more expensive, almost three times more expensive than most other solutions.""We are satisfied with the pricing.""I consider this to be an expensive product."
