We used Informatica PowerCenter for a re-platforming project where the earlier application was using an in-house Java-based ETL, that suffered... more»

What needs improvement?

In our implementation, for the initial conversion, we had to take on a large volume of data from the legacy Sybase system. This was taking a... more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The legacy solution was using an in-house Java-based ETL, that had huge problems in scaling for high volume batches. As part of the... more»

What is most valuable?

GoldenGate replicates in real time between heterogeneous databases such as SQL Server, DB2, Oracle, Sybase and others. In the next few years, we plan to use Oracle GoldenGate to real-time replicate to big data and the cloud.

What do you think of SSIS?

Primary Use Case: SSIS is a very flexible solution that allows data to be generated through code or external software. As a result, we can create reproducible patterns and improve code quality. • Improvements to My Organization: Because of the code generation, code quality improved and the time to develop decreased. This led to a quicker and more agile development phase. • Valuable Features: It has the ability to be deployed into the cloud through Data Factory, and run completely as a software as a service in the cloud. • Room for Improvement: Metadata management. A change in the metadata source cripples the whole ETL process, requiring each module to be manually reopened. • Use of Solution: More than five years.
