Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The initial setup of this solution is very straightforward.
The setup is straightforward. It's very easy to install.
With this solution, there is the potential to expand, so that you can immediately write code onto the SQL server.
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.
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.
It has good data integration and good processes.
The reporting on the solution is perfect. I didn't expect to see reporting features, but they are great.
The simplicity of the solution is great. The solution also offers excellent integration.
The connection between Facebook lead forms and MailChimp integrations is the most valuable feature.
The ability to connect web applications to trigger actions in another app after having enriched, formatted, delayed, grouped, and filtered is really valuable for many businesses.
The performance of this solution is not as good as other tools in the market.
Video training would be a helpful addition.
The solution should work on the GPU, graphical processing unit. There should also be piping integration available.
It needs more integration tools, so you can connect to different sources.
There were some issues when we tried to connect it to data storage. It was a connection issue.
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.
There was also not enough instructions from Microsoft in regards to this application or this technology, which can easily be improved upon.
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.
Some apps are not available yet. For instance, a connection with Joomla! would be great. In general, all the most-used apps are available, but I bumped into Joomla! with a client.
Being able to share Zaps and organize them with teammates would allow sharing and refining scenarios and even combining steps that require different people's credentials.
Pricing and Cost Advice
My advice is to look at what your configuration will be because most companies have their own deals with Microsoft.
This solution has provided an inexpensive tool, and it is easy to find experienced developers.
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.
Think your Zaps through to make sure you don't use more Zaps than you need.
There is a free plan that is, of course, limited. However, it allows you to understand and check true scenarios for a while.

|SSIS is a package is an organized collection of connections, control flow elements, data flow elements, event handlers, variables, parameters, and configurations, that you assemble using either the graphical design tools that SQL Server Integration Services provides, or build programmatically. You then save the completed package to SQL Server, the SSIS Package Store, or the file system, or you can deploy the ssISnoversion project to the SSIS server. The package is the unit of work that is retrieved, executed, and saved.|
Zapier is a tool for primarily non-technical users to connect together web apps.
An integration between two apps is called a Zap. A Zap is made up of a Trigger and one or more Actions or Searches.
Whenever the trigger happens in one app, Zapier will automatically perform the actions or searches in another app in order.
Zaps are very lightweight and easy to set up. Zaps do not import or export old data (they only operate on new items created after the Zap is enabled). Zaps are also not kept in sync ("two way syncing") after the Zap is triggered.
Zaps are deceivingly simple if you're used to dealing with complex and difficult integrations. Their simplicity is what enables anyone to create them.
