More SnapLogic Pros →

Cons
"Real-time replication is required, and this is not a simple task.""The need to work more on developing out-of-the-box connectors for other products like Oracle, AWS, and others.""My only problem is the seamless connectivity with various other databases, for example, SAP.""It would be better if it had machine learning capabilities.""We have experienced some issues with the integration. This is an area that needs improvement.""It can improve from the perspective of active logging. It can provide active logging information.""The number of standard adaptors could be extended further.""There is always room to improve. There should be good examples of use that, of course, customers aren't always willing to share. It is Catch-22. It would help the user base if everybody had really good examples of deployments that worked, but when you ask people to put out their good deployments, which also includes me, you usually got, "No, I'm not going to do that." They don't have enough good examples. Microsoft probably just needs to pay one of their partners to build 20 or 30 examples of functional Data Factories and then share them as a user base."

"The support is the most important improvement they could make.""The solution isn't ideal for complex processing or logic. We use another solution for that.""The dashboards regarding scheduled tasks need further improvement."
