We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"This solution is easy to implement, has a wide variety of connectors, has support for Visual Basic, and supports the C language."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the fast insert and fuzzy logic matching."
"The Connectivity and Connection Manager supports a broad number of connection types, and it is trivial for end-users to set up their own connections to sources."
"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."
"Tuning using this solution requires extensive expertise to improve performance."
"Generic processes should be used instead of custom code for each table."
"On the scheduling server, some scheduled reports just sit there and never execute for the first time. After manually executing the first time, they run with no issues."
"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."
"The cost of this product is reasonable."
SSIS is ranked 2nd in Data Integration Tools with 13 reviews while Toad Data Point is ranked 22nd in Data Integration Tools with 1 review. SSIS is rated 7.8, while Toad Data Point is rated 10.0. The top reviewer of SSIS writes "SSIS 2016 - The good, the bad, and the ugly". On the other hand, the top reviewer of Toad Data Point writes "Easy to learn, good connectivity to multiple data sources, and helpful supprt". SSIS is most compared with Informatica PowerCenter, Talend Open Studio, Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), IBM InfoSphere DataStage and Pentaho Data Integration, whereas Toad Data Point is most compared with Alteryx, Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), SAS Enterprise Guide, erwin Data Catalog and SAS Access.
