Cons
"The solution could be better integrated into Microsoft's other products.""In the next version, I would like to see integration with Azure.""Most of the Microsoft partners, especially digitally, are separate. Personnel are business people, and they do not have technical expertise, so you end up as a company spending a lot of money training your staff and your engineers.""They do not offer the SQL Server Management tool via the installation. It is a separate tool I use when I'm trying to configure the mirroring with SQL Server Mirroring. This is not supported and I'm getting some errors on the database mirroring."

"Creating a model and deploying it is a little bit tricky in Talend, compared to other tools."
