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."
"This product is easy to install and it can be done in a few hours."
"Provides a significant amount of control over the landscape and overall implementation."
"I found the initial setup very easy."
"I like the data vault implementations."
"The most valuable feature is the metadata generated code."
"WhereScape is really helpful in terms of architecture data. Everything is one of automation. Two people can do thousands of tables in one day or two. It saves a lot of time."
"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."
"I would like to have easier integration with cloud platforms."
"Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,"
"The solution can be a little more user-friendly on enterprise-level where people use it."
"Customization could be better."
"Project-based searching of data objects in the data warehouse browser needs to be improved."
"Technical support isn't the best."
"Our company purchased a corporate unlimited license."
