Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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 most valuable feature is the ease in which you can create an ETL pipeline.""The flexibility that Azure Data Factory offers is great.""The initial setup is very quick and easy.""The most valuable features are data transformations.""On the tool itself, we've never experienced any bugs or glitches. There haven't been crashes. Stability has been good.""The best part of this product is the extraction, transformation, and load."

"The best thing I have found with Talend Open Studio is their major support for the lookups.""It has got so many connectors. It is intuitive and easy to use.""It's a good tool. It has the ability to take apart and install whatever we need. It's very good for data, transformation, and loading.""The data integration aspect of the solution is excellent.""A very user friendly solution.""Talend can connect to multiple data sources, including relational data sources, ERP, CRM, and others.""The most valuable features are definitely data integration, data preparation, and data stewardship.""We're sold on the customization part of the solution."

Cons
"We have experienced some issues with the integration. This is an area that needs improvement.""Data Factory could be improved by eliminating the need for a physical data area. We have to extract data using Data Factory, then create a staging database for it with Azure SQL, which is very, very expensive. Another improvement would be lowering the licensing cost.""The number of standard adaptors could be extended further.""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.""The speed and performance need to be improved.""It would be better if it had machine learning capabilities.""Some of the optimization techniques are not scalable.""It can improve from the perspective of active logging. It can provide active logging information."

"he overall marketing and documentation of this product need to improve a lot.""As for improvement or additional features, I would like to know how to use Java in Talend and also how to use Talend in the cloud or in big data. I would prefer to have storage directly on Talend.""It gets the job done but it's a bit slow.""Technical support and customer service need to be improved.""The server-side should be completely revamped.""It is not as visually appealing as some of the other tools.""In terms of features, it has all the features that I need. However, it consumes a lot of resources. It is using a lot of RAM, and they need to fix the issue related to resource consumption. It currently requires more than 24 gigabytes of RAM, which is a big amount of RAM.""We don't get continuous replication of the data."
