We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features for our company are the flexibility and the quick turn around time in producing simple ETL solutions."
"I have used most of the standard SQL features, but the ones that stand out are the Data Flows and Bulk Import."
"It is easily scheduled and integrates well with SQL Server and SQL Server Agent jobs."
"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."
"I am really impressed by TIBCO's integration of any level of complexity."
"I come from a coding background and this tool is graphically based. Sometimes I think it's cumbersome to do mapping graphically. If there was a way to provide a simple script, it would be helpful and make it easier to use."
"This solution needs full support for real-time processing."
"Improving the login procedure would make our reporting easier on monitoring our ETL processes."
"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 deployment was rather complicated."
"My advice is to look at what your configuration will be because most companies have their own deals with Microsoft."
"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."
