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."
"The monitoring is one of the greatest features in Process Orchestration because it is user-friendly and easy for somebody who is not experienced."
"The solution provides very good and central logging systems. It offers high flexibility with vertical and horizontal extend capacity."
"The product has good technical support but you usually will not need it because it is quite stable."
"The initial setup is easy."
"The most valuable feature is the seamless integration with backend systems."
"Great monitoring tools and has its own alert framework."
"The standard adapter with EBA abilities is the most valuable feature. It has good process integration."
"With the latest version what I find to be the most valuable are the REST, SuccessFactors, and Ariba Network adapters."
"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."
"The responsiveness of technical support needs to be improved."
"In terms of technical support, it would be helpful if they handled the tickets a bit faster when queries are sent to them."
"The monitoring governance offered by SAP is too technical and needs to be geared more toward business users."
"It does not have all of the industry-standard solutions available in PO and it is not plug and play, so we have to do a lot of development."
"The older version of the solution will no longer be supported."
"The cloud capability features need improvement."
"I feel that support is an area that needs improvement. They need to improve the response time and address the customer's issues as soon as possible."
"The usability is an area where it can be improved upon."
"The cost of SAP products is quite high but the quality is really good."
"The pricing for this solution is fine."
"There are fees in addition to the licensing."
