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 most valuable feature is real-time streaming."
"There are a lot of options in Spring Cloud. It's flexible in terms of how we can use it. It's a full infrastructure."
"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."
"Some of the features, like the monitoring tools, are not very mature and are still evolving."
"The configurations could be better. Some configurations are a little bit time-consuming in terms of trying to understand using the Spring Cloud documentation."
"This is an open-source product that can be used free of charge."
