Technical support, and their approach is good. They have a support portal and support tickets. If you open a ticket it has multiple levels of severity from level one to very high or critical.

Technical support is great. It's one of the reasons we really like them. When you compare support from IBM and support from Informatica, Informatica is much better.

It reduces a lot of legacy coding.
It works with any multi-databases, so it works with Sybase, SQL Server. Also, the performance is really good and it is easy to use.

The most complex task, in this case, was to read and transform BLOB data, and Java transformation in Informatica Power Center was a great solution.

The performance and design of Informatica have been very valuable. I find the performance faster than, say, Oracle Data Integrator or DataStage.

The licensing cost for Informatica is very high. Other all-in-one solutions have much lower prices than Informatica.

The multiple interfaces in Informatica PowerCenter are not great for the user experience. Because of this, I think it can cause confusion for any beginner developer.

Now they are migrating to a new version, and they have something that is called Informatica Developer. Previously, they just had PowerCenter. Now, when they move everything to Informatica Developer it's not as good or stable like it was when it was PowerCenter, though it has some nice features. This Developer tool could be better.

As a connector to big data, it is not well developed. We've had problems connecting Informatica with Hadoop. The functionality to connect Informatica with Hadoop, for me it's not good.

Integrated Reporting service should be more smoothly transitioned from view to function to be in sync with the main design.

The developer tool documentation can be enhanced with a more clear explanation of each utility, accompanied by relevant examples, so that developers are able to create programs with ease.
