Cons
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trying to improve it with partitions to gpload, but we were told that we can't go more than four partitions.The UI is outdated and old-fashioned, at least in our current version. Also, we have experienced some stability issues with the Workflow Monitor application.
