Cons
"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."

"Additional performance metrics should be added and visible in a dashboard, displayed in a detailed manner.""I find the user interface to be difficult for non-technical people.""The process of transforming the data between two different databases is inefficient and needs to be improved.""The solution, in general, should be easier to use, with less need to perform workarounds within the system.""Technical support for Oracle products needs to be more efficient (at least locally in Egypt).""It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure.""We struggle with memory. It's limited. However, it may be because of our unique business case and how we use it that it's limiting for us.""The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."
