"Deployment was simple and straightforward."
"It has helped us monetize."
"The greatest feature is that it is very easy to have someone come in and jump right in. It is one of the nicest tools in terms of getting a person acquainted quickly."
"It is easy to use, and it is quick for developing things. It is fairly powerful, and it can integrate with a lot of different platforms without much hassle."
"I like the automated scheduling feature."
"It has a Data Catalog that uses the Model repository."
"One of the most valuable features for us is the metadata repository because it can easily understand the lineage of first target mapping. My company and I also find Informatica really easy to use—when a consultant joins our company, in just a few days to a few weeks, they can understand how to use it—so we prefer to use this ETL tool."
"The number of docs has been reduced drastically, which is very good."
"In general, there were a lot of great utilities for working with files."
"OIC offers a number of pre-built technology and SaaS adapters for high productivity for a wide range of target systems, both in-house via agents and cloud/SaaS, via a very flexible range of interfaces."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of customization."
"Oracle Integration Cloud Service integrates well and is user-friendly. If you are not a developer or ops engineer you can still use the solution with ease. You do not need to have developers' knowledge, you can easily adapt and learn quickly to integrate the services. They have good documentation."
"The lack of features in something like Oracle Integration Cloud leaves some room for leads implementation partners like us"
"The out-of-box integration between Oracle and SAP is really beneficial"
"It has a number of pre-built connectors. Its flow designer is also valuable. It provides the ease of promotion between environments and the ease of connection management. It is also stable and easy to scale and deploy."
"I would like to see improvements made to the custom transformations. It should be more open for users that want to write their own code and use cases."
"It would be good to recreate the entire interface to make it easier for users to build workflows."
"PowerCenter could be improved by having more big data components. Normally, we prefer Informatica as a relational database, but nowadays, companies are trying to understand and use big data components. I think it would be useful if we had more chances to create a hub ecosystem because customers try to use some data integration tasks by SQL, Spark and Spark codes, and Scala, but at the end of the day, the company will understand that we need to trace all the steps. An ETL tool is a must for that company, if we're talking about the regulated industries like finance, telcos, etc. If Informatica's biggest ecosystems feature were okay, I would prefer to use it."
"There is some room for improvement in terms of pricing."
"The documentation could be improved."
"Requires an established data center because there is no option for software as a service."
"An issue which should be addressed is that the solution only allows us to do structured, as opposed to unstructured, data processing."
"Its scalability can be improved. It is not scalable."
"They need to make tools framework available for implementation partners"
"The support and resources were lacking — they weren't there."
"Configurable timeouts on each connection would be good."
"There are a few features that we noticed are not in the cloud. There are some improvements needed. One example is the graphical user interface that needs to improve, it could be easier to use."
"The solution doesn't currently have a fully fledged workflow feature like they have in OIM."
"Our client was quite concerned about the cost, which is something that could be reduced."
"It lacks configurable time-outs on connections. Configurable time-outs is an important nonfunctional property that it is currently missing. I have also written about it in an article, and I have also submitted some enhancement requests. Its visual designer could be a bit more responsive. It would also be good to get more XSLT editing capabilities."
