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."
"I think Talend is one of the easiest tools for faster implementation compared to other tools."
"Talend Studio has the ability to connect to almost anything to integrate data from files, databases, web services, etc."
"The basic tools are easy to pick up and understand."
"They're very competitive in terms of performance, which is a good selling point. It has very rich features. It provides a very rich feature set in the application."
"The most valuable feature is integration."
"The features that I like the most are the simplicity of the interface, and the ability to quickly develop with a predefined component."
"I like the way that you can use the context variables, and how you can work those context variables to give you values and settings for every development environment, such as PROD, TEST, and DEV."
"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 stability is good, but the performance is slower when I work on a huge amount of data."
"The documentation from version to version could be more accurate."
"Once you get past the basic tools, it gets pretty complicated."
"Including either XML or JSON in the next release would definitely be a good transformation. I'm not sure if Talend has that feature, but it's one of those requirements that we are working around and have to do some parsing of XML so this could make it easier."
"Performance and speed could be improved."
"They lack in memory capacity."
"I would like to sync a project and do an upload from that current version, and then from GitLab, be able to download the latest one."
"License renewal is on a yearly basis."
"The pricing is a little higher than what I had expected, but it's comparable with I-PASS competitors."
