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."

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."

"Very little needs to improve but perhaps a nicer graphic interface and remaining competetive in the growing field of data analytics.""The pricing of the solution needs to be improved. They need to work to make it more affordable.""We find we often have to go back and re-train users when there are changes made to the solution because the changes are not intuitive.""With SAS Data Management, you have to purchase an external driver, configure all of the tables for all of the data that you will extract from Salesforce. It's not a straightforward process.""One problem is accessing the data using a solution other than SAS. The SAS data, which we create in the SAS, cannot be accessed by other tools. We can't open those data in other applications. So we need to have that application in place.""The solution could use better documentation."
