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.

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.

The container-based image is too large and this makes auto-scaling difficult.There are not many plugins available to integrate the databases. We have to write it in Java and integrate it. The developers should have more knowledge. These are the three main aspects that they could improve.They don't support out of the box - you have to buy adapters or you have to have the technology.I'd like to see a new cloud approach in the next release. They need to work on integrations, stability and management issues on their cloud platform.Technical support is average. It's not the best.

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.
