Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a low-code and high-configuration platform, which is very valuable. Develop once and run anywhere is another useful feature. It also has connectors for more than 200 applications. It provides value for money. Our customers who have implemented this solution have a very high ROI.""I have found the solution to be scalable.""Boomi AtomSphere Integration is stable.""Low-code development is the most valuable feature."

"We are mostly using transmission rules. It has a lot of functions and logic related to transmission. It is a user-friendly tool with in-built functions.""As a data integration platform, it is easy to use. It is quite robust and useful for volumetric analysis when you have huge volumes of data. We have tested it for up to ten million rows, and it is robust enough to process ten million rows internally with its parallel processing. Its error logging mechanism is far simpler and easier to understand than other data integration tools. The newer version of InfoSphere has the data catalog and IDC lineage. They are helpful in the easy traceability of columns and tables.""It is quite useful and powerful.""The Hierarchical Data Stage is good.""The most valuable feature is the data integration for data warehousing.""Once you have Infosphere up and running properly, it is stable.""Offers great flexibility.""The performance optimization is quite good in DataStage. It provides parallelism and pipelining mechanisms"

"They need to introduce more configurable functions to remove scripting or coding. Scripting should be minimized. It should have exhaustive functions. Currently, it lacks in this aspect.""There should be more scripting possibilities.""They are lacking in some streaming features, and messaging features from a listener's point of view.""The product could be a little bit more user-friendly."

More Boomi AtomSphere Integration Cons →

"The initial setup could be more straightforward.""The interface needs improvement.""The pricing should be lower.""In the future, I would like to see more integration with cloud technologies.""The response time from support is slow and needs to be improved.""It doesn't have any big data connections. It would be good to have them because most of the systems are moving towards big data. There should also be a user-friendly way to interact with the cloud. Its loading process is very slow. It takes a lot of time for around 5 or 6 million records, and we are not able to provide real-time data to the vendors due to this delay. Its performance needs to be improved. It is also like a legacy system. It is not updated much. In higher versions, they only do small changes. We would like to have new features and new technologies.""It would be useful to provide support for Python, AR, and Java.""Currently lacking virtualization ability."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "When it comes to pricing, it's not so much about being less expensive as it is about how they don't tie to the hardware on the underlined VMware that you run on, as other vendors do"
  • "The cost of the solution is in the neighborhood of $20,000 annually. There are no costs above the standard licensing fee."

  • "The cost is too high."
  • "It's very expensive."
  • "Our internal team takes care of group licensing and cost. We don't have individual licenses. We have group licensing at the company level. Usually, IBM doesn't charge anything separately on the licensing side. For storage and everything else, we are paying around $6,000 per month, which is not very high. It includes Linux data storage, execution, and licensing. They're charging $40 for one-hour execution. Based on that, we are spending around $2,000 on the production environment and $1,000 on the lower environment for testing and development-side executions. For the mainframe, we are using the Db2 mainframe database, and we are spending around $1,000 on the Db2 mainframe database as well. All this comes out to be around $6,000. We, however, would like to have some cost reduction."
