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.

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.

If the systems get migrated or upgraded, the amount of resources required are very minimal. We can change the connections and establish a new connection. It's very helpful.

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

The only problem with this product is the level of complexity with the number of levels of transformation that you have to go through.

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.

We need another tool for monitoring. It would be easier if all the features were consolidated into one tool.
