Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This product is easy to install and it can be done in a few hours.""The most valuable feature is connectivity to data sources.""The transformation work called for Informatica PowerExchange. It was easy to work with this and very stable.""Provides a significant amount of control over the landscape and overall implementation.""The solution can connect to different systems i.e. mainframe, IMS or AS/400 Legacy Systems.""The user interface and user experience are perfectly all right.""Mainstream integration and real-time integration are the best features.""Overall, it's a good tool. It's currently number one on the market. It pretty much has all the necessary capabilities to pull the incremental data from the source system, technically speaking."

"The CDC feature is interesting.""They've recently improved the ease of implementation.""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.""GoldenGate can connect and collect data from multiple sources, such as SQL Server.""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.""The most valuable feature is data replication capability."

"Technical support can be improved with respect to delays in ticket response time.""Integration with the largest number of databases and other systems would be important.""Real-time has not been enhanced that much over the past few years. There has not been as many features added like they did before.""The one place where it could be improved is definitely pricing. That's a very big problem. It depends product to product, but pricing is an issue.""Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,""I would like to have easier integration with cloud platforms.""Informatica is very expensive in all aspects, so the pricing is something that could be improved.""The solution could be made more user-friendly. The configurations are also quite difficult."

"It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure.""I would like to see the interface more graphical and easier to use.""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.""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.""The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."

    What is the OLAP that you are using? Hosted in Cloud or on-premise?  The target DB should have its tool to extract data.
    Top Answer: 
    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.
    Top Answer: 
    I think that the price for one CPU with a computer is about $17,000. A small solution probably needs at least four CPUs and up to eight. That will add up to $68,000 to $132,000. You can't go that much… more »
