Works well and has a good interface

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is purely for data quality analysis.

Pros and Cons

  • "I am impressed by the solution's interface."
  • "Informatica is very expensive."

What other advice do I have?

I would advise others to go for it because I love it. Maybe there are better tools, but I don't know about them. I would use it in conjunction with Tableau and Google Analytics for visualization. I would also suggest others to follow instructions during the initial setup and not to cut corners. Do the configuration exactly as Informatica suggests. I love Informatica but I am not sure if it is value for money. Organizations that plan to increase their users may find it worth the money, but smaller organizations may want to use something simpler. I will rate this solution an eight out of ten. My…

Data profiling features help us to improve quality and mature our business processes

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for data quality management.

Pros and Cons

  • "We are able to set rules, establish a data quality management platform, and monitor the quality."
  • "I would like to see better visuals for business users, such as a dashboard where they can precisely track where problems are."

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of this solution depends on your environment. If you need large scale data quality and rely heavily on different connections to ge the data, then you really need a good powerhouse and this is the best. But, for example, if you already have SAP in your organization then you may not need IDQ on top of it. There are different factors to consider. This is a good solution, but I can't say that you can solve all of the problems using it. Informatica is focusing only on master data quality. In this regard, there is room for improvement, but it depends upon the use case. I would rate…

Delivers enterprise-strength data quality for a wide range of scenarios

What is our primary use case?

We use Data Quality for healthcare projects, and although it's not its prime purpose, we also use it to extract data. Compared to PowerCenter, it's a little easier to use — we designed the mapping ourselves. In short, we use Data Quality primarily for extraction purposes. Within our organization, there are 10 employees using this solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "Seeing the data in the mapping itself is really nice."
  • "Although we are very satisfied with the design of the UI, executing tasks with it can be difficult."

What other advice do I have?

I would absolutely recommend this solution to others. If you can afford it, then go for it. If it's out of your price range, then I would recommend considering an open-source solution. overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight.

Stable, scalable, and useful for testing purposes, but needs better performance and more execution options

What is our primary use case?

We are using it for extraction purposes for some of our projects. We extract and test the data.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is very useful for testing purposes and designing mappings for small projects. If you go for IDQ in the mapping itself, you can see the data. You can then correct it, and test it so easily. It is working fine. It is also stable, scalable, and easy to deploy."
  • "It can be improved in terms of performance and execution. I'm expecting better performance. It currently has some restrictions in terms of execution. For example, if we want to run it in the command mode and execute it, there are some restrictions, and we are facing some issues with a huge volume of data. These restrictions are not there in Informatica PowerCenter because we are able to execute a huge volume of data, and there are more ways to execute it."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. We have a long term license, and we plan to keep using it. I would rate Informatica Data Quality a seven out of ten.

Flexible user interface, good visibility of data, good support

What is our primary use case?

I starting with the design and discovery phase to detect data issues by using the profiling service, then started to analyze the data to determine and fix issues with it.

How has it helped my organization?

This product really improves my organization and fits all of the needed requirements for working with cleansed data. This helps to prevent issues from appearing in the business layer.

What needs improvement?

The tool's performance is an area that should be given further consideration.

For how long have I used the solution?
