Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with AWS Glue.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The crucial problem with AWS Glue is that it only works with AWS. It is not an agnostic tool like Pentaho. In PowerCenter, we can install the forms from Google and other vendors, but in the case of AWS Glue, we can only use AWS.
Currently, it supports only two languages in the background: Python and Scala. From our customization point of view, it would be helpful if it can also support Java in the background.
The start-up time is really high right now. For instance, when you start up a new job, you have to wait for five or eight minutes before it starts. If the start-up time is reduced to one or two minutes, it will be great. It will be better to have a direct linkage to Redshift in AWS. If we can use data catalogs from Redshift, it will be so easy to create some data catalogs. Currently, we can only use data catalogs from S3.
I work at a company with 10,000+ employees and I'm looking at these 2 cloud integration solutions: AWS Glue and Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services.
Please advise which one is the best choice and why?
