Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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 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's very nice, clear, and, flexible. You can analyze many data types and the user interface is very good.""It’s stable and straightforward.""This solution allows us to integrate data from across all client departments, for effective reporting via a single dashboard.""The out-of-the-box features are simple and easy to use across the board."

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,"

"I would like to see the visualization library in this solution expanded, so that I can increase what I can offer to our clients.""The initial setup can be difficult.""Personalising Spotfire, as a whole, is painful and is something that could be made easier.""The handling and consumption of realtime data could be improved.""We would like to see some improvement in the default properties of the solution, so that there is less need for us to spend our time coding.""When you do the data loading, it is slow.""The initial setup of TIBCO Spotfire is in the middle range of difficulty. The initial setup of Power BI is easier."
