"One of the most valuable features of Informatica Data Archive is its performance."
"The most valuable features of Informatica Data Archive are ease of use, and the flows from one layer to the next are simple to understand."
"It works best with Oracle."
"They've recently improved the ease of implementation."
"The CDC feature is interesting."
"Many of the features of Oracle GoldenGate are valuable. We use Oracle databases and this tool is from Oracle, making it have superior compatibility."
"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."
"GoldenGate can connect and collect data from multiple sources, such as SQL Server."
"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 recovery features could improve in Informatica Data Archive."
"Informatica Data Archive could improve by providing training. Training is one area where we lack, there are not very many trained resources in the market for sales, GPM, proposals, new offerings, or new features that are being added to this solution. It would be really helpful for consultants, like me, to understand the new, cool features these solutions are constantly adding. Training is something, that should be in place."
"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."
"Oracle GoldenGate's installation is not user-friendly, we had to read a lot of documentation for the setup and configuration."
"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."
"The problem with GoldenGate is it is very complex to use. You need heavyweight skills to use it."
"I would like to see the interface more graphical and easier to use."
"The front-end management isn't very good."
"The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."
Retire legacy applications, manage data growth, improve application performance, and maintain compliance with structured archiving.

Pinak S., Senior Manager of System and Database at ESL, mentions, “We like how in GoldenGate the heterogeneous database is supported. Sometimes the client actually needs a schedule and needs to ensure the state of databases for reporting purposes. With that in mind, we have been able to configure GoldenGate for certain schema. The solution is quite stable. They've recently improved the ease of implementation.”
