"The transformation work called for Informatica PowerExchange. It was easy to work with this and very stable.""The user interface and user experience are perfectly all right.""Provides a significant amount of control over the landscape and overall implementation.""The solution can connect to different systems i.e. mainframe, IMS or AS/400 Legacy Systems.""This product is easy to install and it can be done in a few hours.""The most valuable feature is connectivity to data sources.""Overall, it's a good tool.

"Database Migration Service could be more integrated. I think that it makes sense to add integration to these functions. For example, AWS Glue has a feature called Orchestrator to create data flows, and that's more straightforward.""I think that Amazon needs to improve the migration scenarios after analytics""Migrating from here and pushing the data from on-premise to AWS cloud is a big challenge and a few more services from AWS would be helpful. For example, we are currently using ILDB internet tools which move data from on-premise to the AWS cloud. A few more services would be really helpful for me to move the master data."

"I would like to have easier integration with cloud platforms.""Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,""The one place where it could be improved is definitely pricing. That's a very big problem. It depends product to product, but pricing is an issue.""Integration with the largest number of databases and other systems would be important.""Real-time has not been enhanced that much over the past few years. There has not been as many features added like they did before.""Informatica is very expensive in all aspects, so the pricing is something that could be improved.""Technical support can be improved with respect to delays in ticket response time.""The solution could be made more user-friendly. The configurations are also quite difficult."
