A cloud solution with easy configuration with output limitation
There are output limitations and configuration of its three parts. There was a lot of trial and error that we had to go through. It is not clear how the partition discovery would have been affected by more data coming in. We've made some expensive mistakes, which, if there were any tutorials available or if there was easy documentation available with FAQs, could have been avoided. There is documentation, but it doesn't cover all. There are three specific partition changes, and AWS Glue is tightly tied to Athena. We don't have much flexibility in managing the Athena. AWS Glue could integrate with an AI model or a more advanced version that processes chat-based inputs rather than configuration. This would align it more closely with the functionalities of chat-based interfaces, making it easier to adopt.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The key role for Glue is that it hosts our metadata before rolling out our actual data. This is the major advantage of using this solution and our clients client have been very satisfied with it."
"AWS Glue's most valuable features are the data catalog, including crawlers and tables, and Glue Studio, which means you don't have to use custom code."
"Transformations are valuable because you can modify or override complex data logic from an open source or Spark to solve issues."
"I like the fact that AWS Glue works with Python scripts."
"The most valuable feature of AWS Glue is its ease of use and good documentation. Additionally, we can do all the transformations that we need."
"The most valuable feature of AWS Glue is that it provides a GUI format with a drag-and-drop feature."
"The most valuable features currently are glue studio, jobs, and triggers."
"AWS Glue is fast and managed by AWS. Hence, you don't have to worry about capacity and the performance of Glue jobs. It has integrations with other data stores of AWS. The product offers metadata management, logging, and ETL processing capabilities. It comes with a powerful feature, Glue Studio, which helps to do queries interactively within the community. It is a managed service and very secure. Another popular and mature service is S3."
"Integrity, ease of use, user-friendly user interface, and errorless logs are the most valuable features."
"It runs like an appliance and has tremendous throughput."
"The fluid user interface (probably the most user friendly interface, when compared to its competitors)."
"Jitterbit handles the most lines of data in a .csv and loads the quickest of any data loader I have tried."
"It is a scalable solution."
"Jitterbit provides the ability to quickly map data between files and databases."
"Easy integration with Salesforce"
"The Cloud Console for monitoring and troubleshooting data operations."


"The interface for AWS Glue could improve, they do not put a lot of details. You can write the code, in PySpark or in Scala, which is a big advantage, it is only easy to use for a developer. It will be difficult for new users to enter the cloud environment."
"The drawbacks associated with the product stem from the fact that, based on the data volume, it can become very costly."
"I would like to see stable libraries at the moment they are not there."
"The product is expensive for data streaming. This area needs improvement."
"The product has only a few built-in transformations."
"In terms of performance, if they can further optimize the execution time for serverless jobs, it would be a welcome improvement."
"If there's a cluster-related configuration, we have to make worker notes, which is quite a headache when processing a large amount of data."
"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."
"There were some bugs in the product. For example if you run a delete query and test, it deletes the actual data."
"Its API management capabilities need improvement."
"The initial setup can be a little bit difficult."
"In the past few months, there have been some server downtimes during work hours that have affected some critical scheduled integrations."
"Looping through complex data structures can be difficult."
"Sometimes additional connectors are needed."
"You need to have some development skills or hire a Jitterbit engineer to make changes."
"Sometimes we experience disconnections and I have to close all Jitterbit programs."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"AWS Glue is a high-priced solution that bills the client $150,000 to $250,000 annually."
"It is not expensive. AWS Glue works on the serverless architecture. We get charged for the time the server is up. For our use case, we have to use it once in a day, and it is not expensive for us."
"I rate the product's pricing a five on a scale of one to ten, where one is a high price, and ten is a low price."
"I rate the tool's pricing a four out of ten."
"The pricing is a bit higher than other solutions like Athena and EC2. If the pricing becomes more scaled or flexible, it will be good because you have to pay 44 cents just for one DPU for an hour. If you increase DPUs to 5 or 10, the pricing gets multiplied. There are also some time limits like 0 to 10 minutes or 10 to 20 minutes. If the pricing is according to the minutes, it would be better because you have to limit your job to 10 minutes or 20 minutes."
"Its price is good. We pay as we go or based on the usage, which is a good thing for us because it is simple to forecast for the tool. It is good in terms of the financial planning of the company, and it is a good way to estimate the cost. It is also simple for our clients. In my opinion, it is one of the best tools in the market for ETL processes because of the fact that you pay as you use, which separates it from other big tools such as PowerCenter, Pentaho Data Integration, and Talend."
"The solution's pricing is based on DPUs so it is a good idea to optimize use or it can get expensive."
"I would rate the solution a six or seven on a scale of one to ten, with ten being very expensive. Specifically, I rate its pricing a six out of ten."
"Jitterbit was extremely cost effective for us compared to other options."
"I do believe Jitterbit has one of the better pricing and licensing options out there compared to its competitors."
"The solution's cost is mid-ranged compared to other vendors."
"The Jitterbit price is based upon endpoints. They also offer ERP connectors with their Enterprise edition"
"Each business needs to determine if it is a mission critical aspect."
"The added bonus is that Jitterbit doesn't charge for any data volume/traffic."
