Pros
"In terms of my personal experience, it works fine.""Its integrability with the rest of the activities on Azure is most valuable.""It has built-in connectors for more than 100 sources and onboarding data from many different sources to the cloud environment.""The most valuable features are data transformations.""It is very modular. It works well. We've used Data Factory and then made calls to libraries outside of Data Factory to do things that it wasn't optimized to do, and it worked really well. It is obviously proprietary in regards to Microsoft created it, but it is pretty easy and direct to bring in outside capabilities into Data Factory.""One of the most valuable features of Azure Data Factory is the drag-and-drop interface. This helps with workflow management because we can just drag any tables or data sources we need. Because of how easy it is to drag and drop, we can deliver things very quickly. It's more customizable through visual effect.""The flexibility that Azure Data Factory offers is great.""It's extremely consistent."

Cons
"We have experienced some issues with the integration. This is an area that needs improvement.""There is no built-in function for automatically adding notifications concerning the progress or outline of a pipeline run.""We are too early into the entire cycle for us to really comment on what problems we face. We're mostly using it for transformations, like ETL tasks. I think we are comfortable with the facts or the facts setting. But for other parts, it is too early to comment on.""It can improve from the perspective of active logging. It can provide active logging information.""Azure Data Factory should be cheaper to move data to a data center abroad for calamities in case of disasters.""The solution needs to be more connectable to its own services.""It would be better if it had machine learning capabilities.""The setup and configuration process could be simplified."
