It's highly scalable. It takes upon itself the Redshift scalability, so it's very good.It has improved the costs of managing my customer’s data.It takes less than five minutes to set up and delivers results. It is much quicker than traditional ETL technologies.It is pretty user-friendly, even for people who aren't super technical.It has good integrations with Amazon Redshift and other AWS services.We allow non-technical people to use Matillion to load data into our data warehouse for reporting.

They already have a support portal, and they are responsive, which helps.

Cons
I would like to have easier integration with cloud platforms.Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,Informatica is very expensive in all aspects, so the pricing is something that could be improved.Real-time has not been enhanced that much over the past few years. There has not been as many features added like they did before.Integration with the largest number of databases and other systems would be important.The one place where it could be improved is definitely pricing. That's a very big problem. It depends product to product, but pricing is an issue.Technical support can be improved with respect to delays in ticket response time.The solution needs better integration with other tools.

Ideally, I would like it to integrate with Secrets Manager as well as the AWS.It needs integration with more data sources.Going forward, I would like them to add custom jobs, since we still have to run these outside of Matillion.In the next release, we would like to have connections to more databases.To complete the pipeline, they might want to include some connectors which would put the data into different platforms. This would be helpful.Performance can be improved for efficiency, and it can be made faster.While the UI is good, it could be improved in its efficiency and made easier to use.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The solution is very cheap. You're paying $2.50 an hour and if you set your service up, which you can do, you're not getting charged. Currently, our ETL process is just an overnight process that runs for about an hour. I can start and stop my server just for an hour if I want to and spent $2.50 a day for an ETL solution. There are no additional costs.The AWS pricing and licensing are a cost-effective solution for data integration needs.It was procured through the AWS Marketplace because it keeps things simple. They offer retail-like checkout and bill through your existing Amazon Web Services account.Purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace is pretty convenient. There is a little bit of back and forth in terms of the licensing based on the machine size, but it seems to have worked out well. it is convenient to have it all as part of our AWS billing.It is not necessarily a cheap solution. However, it's reasonable priced, especially with the smaller machines that we run it on.The prices needs to be lower.It was very easy to purchase through the AWS Marketplace, but it was also expensive.I have heard from my manager and other higher ups, "This product is cheaper than other things on the market," and they have done the research.
