Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The flexibility to use already-developed components is really good. You can use it for Excel-related operations and other things.""The pricing of the solution is quite good.""Provides valuable tools working in integration with RPA tools.""It is stable and scalable.""The OCR was quite stable and flexible.""This is a stable platform and we did not encounter any big problems.""The ability to script information from websites is most valuable. It also seems to be fairly robust and reasonably easy to manage on a server-based deployment. We have a number of robots operating on the central 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.""GoldenGate can connect and collect data from multiple sources, such as SQL Server.""The most valuable feature is data replication capability.""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.""The CDC feature is interesting.""They've recently improved the ease of implementation."

Cons
"I would like to see them further enhance the OCR, specifically in the multi-language support.""Exception handling needs to be improved.""The solution could use some AI integrated features.""Its documentation is not widely available on the web. They should work on the availability of its documentation. In Automation Anywhere, there is a feature called Discovery Bot that automatically records the process steps and suggests a possible bot. I am not sure if such a feature is available in Kofax. If it is not available, it will be very good to have this feature. ""The process discovery could be a bit better.""We are on version 10.6, and the current version seems to be 11. Kofax is cycling the capabilities of the product very quickly. One of the difficulties has been to actually keep up with the capabilities as they've evolved. On the one hand, it is good that the product is getting better, but on the other hand, it is difficult to implement the best way with a product that is evolving constantly.""It needs a free training portal for anybody on the internet to use so that they can get an idea of what the possibilities are.""The product needs more AI capabilities."

More Kofax RPA Cons →

"The problem with GoldenGate is it is very complex to use. You need heavyweight skills to use it.""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.""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.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Price is not a problem, because they are a competitor and we have a special rate."
  • "I don't have complete insight at this point in time, but I would guess that Kofax is a lot less expensive than Automation Anywhere. I would expect its license to be on a yearly basis."
  • "Its pricing is reasonable given the product capabilities. Kofax has a wide range of products, and it can sometimes be confusing to understand which capabilities come with which product set. One of the key facets that we've been looking into recently is cognitive document recognition that was a core pile of some of their other technologies such as Kofax transformation modules (KTM)."

  • "The price of this solution is good."
  • "We have an enterprise license for it. It might be for three years or so. I'm not aware of any additional costs to the standard licensing fee."

    Top Answer: 
    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 »
