We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The product is scalable and excellent for enterprise-level organizations.""Informatica Cloud Data Integration is stable.""We have a lot of integrations, and it's very easy to create integrations. They have a lot of connectors.""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 mass ingestion functionality and the elasticity of the solution are great.""It has a more UI-based tool, and the scripting is good.""Informatica Cloud Data Integration is stable.""The solution's initial setup is quite straightforward."

Cons
"The current features are a bit complicated, and we need to write big scripts and test.""I have received feedback from certain teams and there is a steep learning curve to use this solution.""Informatica Cloud Data Integration could improve the price by making it less expensive.""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.""Cost-wise, it could be better.""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.""Its pricing model can be improved. The response time from technical support can also be improved.""The price modeling could be more flexible."

"Customization could be better.""Technical support isn't the best.""Project-based searching of data objects in the data warehouse browser needs to be improved."
