Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature that we are using is the data replication between the data centers allowing us to configure a disaster recovery or software. However, is it's not mandatory to use and because most of the features that we use are from Apache Kafka, such as end-to-end encryption. Internally, we can develop our own kind of product or service from Apache Kafka.""The design of the product is extremely well built and it is highly configurable.""A person with a good IT background and HTML will not have any trouble with Confluent.""Kafka Connect framework is valuable for connecting to the various source systems where code doesn't need to be written.""Their tech support is amazing; they are very good, both on and off-site."

"GoldenGate can connect and collect data from multiple sources, such as SQL Server.""They've recently improved the ease of implementation.""What I have found the most valuable about GoldenGate is that it does real-time and no-downtime migrations. Its migrations are fast. There are not many tools like it on the marketplace.""The CDC feature is interesting.""The most valuable feature is data replication capability.""It moves the data as you set it up, and it works. I am also very impressed with its stability and scalability. It is not super feature-rich, but the new releases have more functionality. It recently had more native integrations with Oracle Database. If you are using it against an Oracle database, it has a lot more functionality."

Cons
"there is room for improvement in the visualization.""It would help if the knowledge based documents in the support portal could be available for public use as well.""They should remove Zookeeper because of security issues.""In Confluent, there could be a few more VPN options.""It could have more themes. They should also have more reporting-oriented plugins as well. It would be great to have free custom reports that can be dispatched directly from Jira."

"I would like to see the interface more graphical and easier to use.""We struggle with memory. It's limited. However, it may be because of our unique business case and how we use it that it's limiting for us.""It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure.""Troubleshooting issues is not always the easiest. It should be easier to troubleshoot. Their support can also be improved. They don't read your problem statement and waste a lot of time. GoldenGate for big data is actually a separate license. It is sort of a separate product, but it might fall underneath your GoldenGate category. If we're talking about big data, its interaction with big data sources is poorly documented.""The problem with GoldenGate is it is very complex to use. You need heavyweight skills to use it.""The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."

    Top Answer: 
    What is the OLAP that you are using? Hosted in Cloud or on-premise?  The target DB should have its tool to extract data.
    Top Answer: 
    What I have found the most valuable about GoldenGate is that it does real-time and no-downtime migrations. Its migrations are fast. There are not many tools like it on the marketplace.
    Top Answer: 
    I think that the price for one CPU with a computer is about $17,000. A small solution probably needs at least four CPUs and up to eight. That will add up to $68,000 to $132,000. You can't go that much… more »
