We performed a comparison between Informatica PowerExchange and JumpMind SymmetricDS based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Cloud Data Integration solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The solution can connect to different systems i.e. mainframe, IMS or AS/400 Legacy Systems."
"Provides a significant amount of control over the landscape and overall implementation."
"The main benefit of PowerExchange is its native real-time capabilities. Competing tools are counting on third-party packages or Oracle to offer real-time capabilities. However, Informatica has a native ability to scan the data on the file system level and capture the changes almost instantly when I push it to the consumers. The solution has a powerful built-in replication engine."
"It is fully featured. It has allowed me to do everything I wanted to do."
"The major shortcoming of PowerExchange is high availability and failover. None of the versions we've used to date have had the out-of-the-box ability to enable failover and high-availability requirements. This is a significant challenge and risk."
"The solution could be made more user-friendly. The configurations are also quite difficult."
"Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,"
"The user interface could improve. We are looking at some cloud-based databases, and I don't think they support that."
Informatica PowerExchange Connectors provides high performance, out-of-the-box connectivity without having to develop custom data access programs.
JumpMind SymmetricDS is a powerful data replication software that provides synchronization software solutions for both databases and filesystems. This software is platform-independent and web-enabled as well as database agnostic.
