ChitraGovindasamyBI Consultant at a tech services company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It is a smart tool for us to design data pipelines. It lets us populate our three data lake instances. We like this solution for its connection capabilities, since it is very important to be able to use many different types of software. We tested a lot of SAP sources successfully, including cloud sources with SAP. It is also very easy to anonymize data with TIBCO, as well as populating HDFS files, packet files, and raw files. It is very easy to do that with Talend Data Fabric."
"We've had no issues with the stability so far."
"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."
"Deployment can be difficult, but I didn't test the latest version yet. With Talend products, every release brings a lot of new features and functionalities. This is never a small adaptation, because the tool is maturing, but we need to test the latest version and to check its deployment capabilities."
"I would like to see better integration with other tools."
"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."
"There are no additional licensing fees when you scale"
