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.

There should be some kind of enhancement that can be done on the admin side of certain sites where we can assign the roles and responsibilities. We should be able to control who is using the tool and how.The interface is not quite user-friendly and is in need of improvement.The solution should offer more machine learning and automation.The pricing of the solution should be improved.Integration with other products could be improved.Newer feature integration is lagging behind the company acquisitions and the product could do more to service a broader range of devices.The initial setup is complex.The description of error messages isn't extensive, although they point to the problem. With other solutions, like Talend, I was able to use the debugger to get directly to the problem, but with SAP Data Services the debugger is not working. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the version specifically, but I'm using it in an enterprise environment and I can't do an upgrade.
