Quotes From Members
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.""Whether we need data cleansing or data mastering, we get it all in one platform.""The product is scalable and excellent for enterprise-level organizations.""The solution's initial setup is quite straightforward.""I do a quite a lot of data transformations, and the fact that I can do them without changing any of my SQL queries from the code, using the inbuilt tools, is very helpful.""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."

"The API toolkit is the solution's most valuable aspect at this time, for our organization.""We are very satisfied with the DevOps support.""Mule works very well with Salesforce and CRMs.""API management.""Overall, it is a pretty good product. It is also very scalable.""It's easy to develop APIs.""The flexibility has been great overall.""The monitoring capabilities of this product are very good because of the feedback it supplies in statistics."

Cons
"The price modeling could be more flexible.""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 would like to see support for more data sources.""Connectivity could be improved, it can be a little slow.""Cost-wise, it could be better.""I have received feedback from certain teams and there is a steep learning curve to use this solution.""There may be some types of limitations with the performance."

"The solution is very expensive. They need to work on the pricing.""The runtime management and connectors could use some work and are vulnerable to breakage after upgrades.""Pricing is one aspect of the solution that is troublesome. It's too expensive for smaller organizations.""It doesn't work well when you try using it for the processing layer.""It has different types of subscriptions. For platinum or lower subscriptions, there are not too many things that can be done. We don't see many features. They should release a basic version that has logging and monitoring features. These features should come with Mule Anypoint Platform for free instead of making customers pay separately for these features. Its dashboard can be improved to have a lot of charts so that it is easy to visualize information. The utilization part can be improved. The dashboard is good currently, but it can be better. Other solutions like Elastic have a good dashboard, and they allow you to administer the product from the UI. Currently, for RTF, there is a different dashboard or utility. It would be good to include the same utility in the cloud solution. It would be good if there is a centralized repository that includes the links to the information about various troubleshooting issues. The documentation is there currently, and it is good, but the troubleshooting information is too scattered. We have to go to different links to find troubleshooting information. This kind of centralized repository would be helpful for new customers who are implementing this solution. It will be helpful to see different kinds of issues that can occur.""Lacks intelligent management data and intelligent mappings.""The terms of use and how it's priced has become very difficult to manage, which is forcing us to look for alternatives already - and we haven't even been using it for that long just yet.""Adding connectors for new upcoming applications would add extra value to this product."
