We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The data transformation is the solution's most valuable feature."
"The most valuable feature is connectivity to data sources."
"Overall, it's a good tool. It's currently number one on the market. It pretty much has all the necessary capabilities to pull the incremental data from the source system, technically speaking."
"The transformation work called for Informatica PowerExchange. It was easy to work with this and very stable."
"Mainstream integration and real-time integration are the best features."
"The user interface and user experience are perfectly all right."
"Provides a significant amount of control over the landscape and overall implementation."
"This product is easy to install and it can be done in a few hours."
"It's highly scalable. It takes upon itself the Redshift scalability, so it's very good."
"The simplicity of this tool is nice. It has a good graphical user interface. You can also do a lot of generic stuff in the tool. If there is good connectivity to a cloud database, such as Snowflake, and you can have a lot of Snowflake functionality in the tool."
"The solution needs better integration with other tools."
"Technical support can be improved with respect to delays in ticket response time."
"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."
"Integration with the largest number of databases and other systems would be important."
"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."
"Informatica is very expensive in all aspects, so the pricing is something that could be improved."
"Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,"
"I would like to have easier integration with cloud platforms."
"Ideally, I would like it to integrate with Secrets Manager as well as the AWS."
"It can have multi-environment support. We should be able to deploy it in different environments. Its integration with SAP connection is not so nice, which should be improved. It can also support an on-prem database."
"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."
"Its price depends on what you expect. You pay on a monthly basis, but there is a possibility to have special contracts depending on the installation."
