We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Its compatibility with Microsoft products has been very valuable to our company. It fits well within the architecture."
"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."
"It is really easy to set up and the interface is easy to use."
"We're in the process of switching to Informatica, and we need to work out data lineage and data profiling and to improve the quality of our data. SSIS, however, is not that compatible with Informatica. We managed to connect it to Informatica Metadata Manager, but we don't get good lineage, so we have to redo all our ETLs using the Informatica process in order to accept the proper data lineage."
"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."
"We've seen a couple of cases where it appears to have a memory leak or a similar problem."
"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."
"We are running the community version right now, which can be used free of charge."
StreamSets Dataflow Performance Manager was created to enable enterprises to harness their data in motion. It unifies visibility and control of dataflows, which reduces management costs, improves data quality and enables IT agility.
SSIS is ranked 2nd in Data Integration Tools with 16 reviews while StreamSets is ranked 25th in Data Integration Tools with 1 review. SSIS is rated 7.8, while StreamSets is rated 8.0.
