Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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 Connectivity and Connection Manager supports a broad number of connection types, and it is trivial for end-users to set up their own connections to sources."

Cons
"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.""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."

"On the scheduling server, some scheduled reports just sit there and never execute for the first time. After manually executing the first time, they run with no issues."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
