The regions in which the data resides are still limited. This could be an issue in terms of the data residency laws of some of the countries. They should get more regions.

I haven't had too much time with the solution. There may be much to be improved. However, I still need time with it. There may be some types of limitations with the performance.

The one thing that I think could be improved is connectivity with the Salesforce because if you're loading a huge amount of data, whatever optimization is carried out, takes some time and it could be a little faster.

I would like to see support for more data sources. At this point in time, I'm not sure if they are supporting Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud, but continually adding new data sources is one area that they can improve on. The deployment could be somewhat simplified. One drawback is that you need a separate server for it. However, from an enterprise point of view, it is worth it because the product is good.

The user interface could be more user friendly with a simplified mapping task. In general, improvements could be made in mapping. When we create mapping from uploaded data, I'd like to see integrational mapping. I possibly need some extra time to grasp it all but a general improvement in icons and the virtual interface would be good for us. We are working as developers and we're working with the solution on a daily basis so any improvement would be good in this area.

It's very easy to develop with the solution whenever we have an evolution for the data integration. Perhaps the web services need to improve because when you create a new data file and add some changes, we must edit it and create a web service transformation again. So, in my opinion, the functionality is bad and it needs to improve to make web service transformation better and easier.

One area that needs to improve is the user experience because it is very complex. The trial version is very complex so it's not easy to start using the program immediately. You must study the rules first.

I would like to see more functionality added so that it is a bit closer to how much you can do with Informatica PowerCenter. Having a better dashboard would be an improvement.

The availability of connectors from the get-go, not just waiting for additional, extra ones to be added. That's it.

The biggest challenge I see is the IDE's for the cloud and automization are different. They could have made an IDE in such a way that you can write an integration for the cloud. If I had the flexibilty of making that decision later, that would be a great benefit to have. In addition, another improvement could be if you develop and design your integration without being connected to the server. If you could deploy it anywhere, that would be helpful.
