We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The partitioning and optimization to help enhance our development is a very valuable aspect of Informatica PowerCenter."
"Ease and speed of building integrations, especially integrations between different applications, such as our Hospital Information System."
"Good interface, reasonable documentation."
"The most valuable features are the metadata repository and the data warehouse application console."
"What I like the most is that we have to deal with less while writing the queries."
"If the systems get migrated or upgraded, the amount of resources required are very minimal. We can change the connections and establish a new connection. It's very helpful."
"Talend Studio has the ability to connect to almost anything to integrate data from files, databases, web services, etc."
"The basic tools are easy to pick up and understand."
"They're very competitive in terms of performance, which is a good selling point. It has very rich features. It provides a very rich feature set in the application."
"The most valuable feature is integration."
"The features that I like the most are the simplicity of the interface, and the ability to quickly develop with a predefined component."
"I like the way that you can use the context variables, and how you can work those context variables to give you values and settings for every development environment, such as PROD, TEST, and DEV."
"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."
"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."
"Lacks ability to calculate cost of the product."
"The only problem with this product is the level of complexity with the number of levels of transformation that you have to go through."
"I would like to see it be able to import data from NoSQL."
"We need another tool for monitoring. It would be easier if all the features were consolidated into one tool."
"The documentation could be improved."
"The documentation from version to version could be more accurate."
"Once you get past the basic tools, it gets pretty complicated."
"Including either XML or JSON in the next release would definitely be a good transformation. I'm not sure if Talend has that feature, but it's one of those requirements that we are working around and have to do some parsing of XML so this could make it easier."
"Performance and speed could be improved."
"They lack in memory capacity."
"I would like to sync a project and do an upload from that current version, and then from GitLab, be able to download the latest one."
"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."
"It is for big enterprises. We have leveraged Informatica for big enterprises but not for small and medium enterprises because it is a very costly product as compared to other products. We propose this solution only for enterprise customers. For small to medium enterprises, we would propose the Microsoft solution. Its licensing is currently bundle-wise. It should be features-wise and not bundle-wise."
"The price of this solution is high."
"Our client has purchased the license, and we are using it."
"The solution is in the middle price range compared to other solutions."
"License renewal is on a yearly basis."
"The pricing is a little higher than what I had expected, but it's comparable with I-PASS competitors."
