Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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."

More JumpMind SymmetricDS Pros →

Cons
"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."

More JumpMind SymmetricDS Cons →

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "An annual package license fee is required."
  • "The cost of PowerExchange is reasonable. It does not rely on complicated formulas or unrealistic equations. The pricing model is straightforward. There is one component, and real-time integration is included. Some other solutions require purchasing additional modules or third-party plugins for this capability."
