We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The mass ingestion functionality and the elasticity of the solution are great.""The product is scalable and excellent for enterprise-level organizations.""Informatica Cloud Data Integration is stable.""The solution's initial setup is quite straightforward.""We have a lot of integrations, and it's very easy to create integrations. They have a lot of connectors.""It has all the advantages of the Cloud in that you can use it without worrying about infrastructure, upkeep, or upgrades.""Their new licensing is very flexible. With Informatica Cloud, you have plenty of items under the same umbrella, such as services, offerings, data quality, and data masking. You have also got master data management and API management. What I really like about them is that you don't need to go to Informatica and say that you need a data integration module. You would say that you need iPaaS or Informatica Cloud. They'll then try to understand your needs and give you IPUs, which are the processing units. If I purchased a hundred IPUs from Informatica as a customer, I can use 70 IPUs for data integration. I would also need data quality, so I can use 10 IPUs for data quality. I can use the remaining 20 IPUs for API management. Down the line, if I see that my initial data integration needs for the development phase are met, then out of the 70 IPUs assigned for data integration, I can use 30 IPUs for data masking. I can shuffle these numbers in any way within the Informatica Cloud umbrella for the tenure for which I have subscribed to these IPUs. I can use all services the way I want. This flexibility is what I really love about Informatica. It also has got good connectors.""Informatica Cloud Data Integration is stable."

"The flexibility to use already-developed components is really good. You can use it for Excel-related operations and other things.""It is stable and scalable.""The most valuable features are workflow and process automation.""The pricing of the solution is quite good.""Provides valuable tools working in integration with RPA tools.""The OCR was quite stable and flexible.""The ability to script information from websites is most valuable. It also seems to be fairly robust and reasonably easy to manage on a server-based deployment. We have a number of robots operating on the central server."

Cons
"Informatica Cloud Data Integration could improve the price by making it less expensive.""Cost-wise, it could be better.""Its pricing model can be improved. The response time from technical support can also be improved.""The cloud version of the Informatica, it's a very substandard product. They might say it's enterprise-ready but it's not at all ready. They need to add more features, such as improved data replication features. If you look at other tools, such as Matillion they are now cloud-native and flexible. Additionally, Informatica Cloud Data Integration should have a good migration strategy from Informatica PowerCenter to Informatica Cloud Data Integration.""There may be some types of limitations with the performance.""The regions in which the data resides are still limited. This could be an issue in terms of the data residency laws of some of the countries. They should get more regions.""I have received feedback from certain teams and there is a steep learning curve to use this solution.""The price modeling could be more flexible."

"The interface could be better from a usability standpoint.""Its documentation is not widely available on the web. They should work on the availability of its documentation. In Automation Anywhere, there is a feature called Discovery Bot that automatically records the process steps and suggests a possible bot. I am not sure if such a feature is available in Kofax. If it is not available, it will be very good to have this feature. ""We are on version 10.6, and the current version seems to be 11. Kofax is cycling the capabilities of the product very quickly. One of the difficulties has been to actually keep up with the capabilities as they've evolved. On the one hand, it is good that the product is getting better, but on the other hand, it is difficult to implement the best way with a product that is evolving constantly.""The product needs more AI capabilities.""There is really nothing special about the capabilities of this product.""I would like to see them further enhance the OCR, specifically in the multi-language support.""Exception handling needs to be improved.""The solution could use some AI integrated features."

  • "Price is not a problem, because they are a competitor and we have a special rate."
  • "I don't have complete insight at this point in time, but I would guess that Kofax is a lot less expensive than Automation Anywhere. I would expect its license to be on a yearly basis."
  • "Its pricing is reasonable given the product capabilities. Kofax has a wide range of products, and it can sometimes be confusing to understand which capabilities come with which product set. One of the key facets that we've been looking into recently is cognitive document recognition that was a core pile of some of their other technologies such as Kofax transformation modules (KTM)."
  • "Kofax's prices are pretty reasonable."
