We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's very easy to get started on the solution. It's also easy to maintain, scale, and integrate according to cost factors."
"The most important part would be the use of connectors. The significant number of cloud connectors available for active integration is its value."
"The lack of features in something like Oracle Integration Cloud leaves some room for leads implementation partners like us"
"The most valuable feature is the ease of customization."
"The out-of-box integration between Oracle and SAP is really beneficial"
"It has a number of pre-built connectors. Its flow designer is also valuable. It provides the ease of promotion between environments and the ease of connection management. It is also stable and easy to scale and deploy."
"OIC offers a number of pre-built technology and SaaS adapters for high productivity for a wide range of target systems, both in-house via agents and cloud/SaaS, via a very flexible range of interfaces."
"In general, there were a lot of great utilities for working with files."
"The simplicity of the solution is great. The solution also offers excellent integration."
"The reporting on the solution is perfect. I didn't expect to see reporting features, but they are great."
"It has a drag and drop feature that makes it easy to use. It has a good user experience because it takes into account your most-used tools and they're lined up nicely so you can just drag and drop without looking too far. It also integrates nicely with Microsoft."
"The workflow features have been very valuable. You can have automated workflows and all the steps are controlled. The workflow functionality of integration services is excellent."
"With this solution, there is the potential to expand, so that you can immediately write code onto the SQL server."
"The setup is straightforward. It's very easy to install."
"It has good data integration and good processes."
"The initial setup of this solution is very straightforward."
"Oracle-based automation blueprints for the majority of the integrations would be helpful to have in a future release."
"Now the platform is not built in a way that you can define."
"They need to make tools framework available for implementation partners"
"Our client was quite concerned about the cost, which is something that could be reduced."
"The solution doesn't currently have a fully fledged workflow feature like they have in OIM."
"It lacks configurable time-outs on connections. Configurable time-outs is an important nonfunctional property that it is currently missing. I have also written about it in an article, and I have also submitted some enhancement requests. Its visual designer could be a bit more responsive. It would also be good to get more XSLT editing capabilities."
"Configurable timeouts on each connection would be good."
"The support and resources were lacking — they weren't there."
"The interface could use improvement, as well as the administrative tools. Jobs fail from time to time for different reasons. It's not a problem with Microsoft, or SSIS itself. The problems are external, but to find the problems and analyze them it takes too much time."
"There was also not enough instructions from Microsoft in regards to this application or this technology, which can easily be improved upon."
"There were some issues when we tried to connect it to data storage. It was a connection issue."
"It needs more integration tools, so you can connect to different sources."
"The solution should work on the GPU, graphical processing unit. There should also be piping integration available."
"Video training would be a helpful addition."
"I would also like to see full integration with our BI because then our full load of data will be available in our organization. They should incorporate an ATL process."
"The performance of this solution is not as good as other tools in the market."
"It has different licensing models. The most upfront and most transparent is the pay-as-you-go model. It also has a certain messages-per-hour limit. There is a certain amount that is charged per hour, and a certain number of messages are included in it, which you can scale up as you go. Its licensing is very competent and easy."
"In the case of Oracle Integration Cloud, costs can be "predictable" as far as the platform and infrastructure are concerned."
"This solution is included with the MSSQL server package."
"t's incredibly cost effective, easy to learn the basics quickly (although like all ETL tools requires the traditional learning curve to get good at) and has an immense user base."
"It would be beneficial if the solution had a less costly cloud offering."
"Based on my experience and understanding, Talend comes out to be a little bit expensive as compared to SSIS. The average cost of having Talend with Talend Management Console is around 72K per region, which is much higher than SSIS. SSIS works very well with Microsoft technologies, and if you have Microsoft technologies, it is not really expensive to have SSIS. If you have SQL Server, SSIS is free."
