We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is easy to implement and easy to use. It's basically just drag and drop."
"SnapLogice is a low-code development tool."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"Built in reports show package execution and messages. Logging can also be customized so only what is needed is logged. There is also an excellent logging replacement called BiXpress that provides both historical and real-time monitoring which is more efficient and much more robust than the built-in logging capabilities. And none of this requires custom coding to make it useful unlike many other ETL tools."
"The interface is very user-friendly."
"The most valuable thing is that it is easy to connect with Microsoft tools. In Europe, particularly in France, a lot of companies use Excel, SQL Server, and other Microsoft tools, and it is easier to connect SSIS with Microsoft tools than other products."
"It is also easy to learn and user-friendly. Microsoft is also good in terms of technical support. They have built a large community all over the world."
"The technical support is very good."
"The script component is very powerful, things that you cannot normally do, is feasible through C#."
"The debugging capabilities are great, particularly during data flow execution. You can look into the data and see what's going on in the pipeline."
"It's a competent product."
"The dashboards regarding scheduled tasks need further improvement."
"The support is the most important improvement they could make."
"The solution isn't ideal for complex processing or logic. We use another solution for that."
"It should have other programming languages supported as well from a scripting perspective. Currently, only C# and VB.NET are supported, which limits it to .NET. It should have Java support as well."
"The solution could improve on integrating with other types of data sources."
"I would like to see better integration with Power BI."
"The solution could improve by having quicker release updates."
"You have to write push down join & lookup SQL to the database yourself via stored procedures or use of the SQL Task to get very high performance. That said, this is a common complaint for nearly all ETL tools on the market and those that offer an alternative such as Informatica offer them at a very expensive add-on price."
"When I compare Talend and SSIS, Talend provides more features. With Talend, we can handle a large volume of data. Talend is usually used to treat a large volume of data, which makes it better than SSIS on the data side. Talend also has a very good Talend Management Console to schedule the jobs and do other things. It can also be easily connected to version control tools such as GitHub or SVN. The last time I used SSIS, it was connected through TSS for the Windows Console version. I am not sure it has been improved or not. If it is not improved, Microsoft should improve it. They should change the product to provide another console."
"It's a legacy tool, that is nearing the end of its useful life."
"SnapLogic is not expensive. It's reasonably priced."
"We have an enterprise license for this solution."
"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."
"It would be beneficial if the solution had a less costly cloud offering."
"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 comes bundled with other solutions, which makes it difficult to get the price on the specific product."
