Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Matillion ETL is one hundred percent stable.""The most valuable feature of Matillion ETL is the ETL. The solution is open-source which provides advantages, such as good performance and high efficiency. Additionally, it supports three data types which eliminates predefining the data, and we can write script models in Python.""The most valuable feature of Matillion ETL is its ease of use. If you have had some experience with other solutions, such as Snowflake, the use of this solution will be simple.""Matillion ETL has great Git integration that is perfect and convenient to use.""The loading of data is the most valuable feature of Matillion ETL.""It's been able to do everything we require."

More Matillion ETL Pros →

"The solution is stable.""The data reader is the most valuable feature.""It's something I needed for bulk imports. I'm not a big fan of it, but I haven't seen anything better.""SSIS is easy to use.""The scalability of SSIS is good.""The technical support is very good.""It is easy to set up the product.""Like most Microsoft products, SSIS is user-friendly and easy to use."

More SSIS Pros →

"The cost of the solution is high and could be reduced.""Unlike Snowflake which automatically takes care of upgrading to the latest version and includes additional features, with Matillion ETL we need to do this ourselves.""I am looking forward to seeing the expansion of the source range for their data loader product.""Matillion’s on-premises capabilities don’t allow you to build something customized.""When using the SQL loader type there were not a lot of pre-processing features for the data. For example, if there is a table with twenty columns, but we only want to load ten columns. In that case, we can use a security script to select the specific columns needed. However, if we want to perform extensive pre-processing of the data, I faced some challenges with Matillion ETL. I did not encounter many challenges, but my overall experience is limited as I only have three years of experience.""There are certain functions that are available in other ETL tools which are still not present in Matillion ETL. It would be good to have more features."

More Matillion ETL Cons →

"I have a tool called ZappySys. I need that tool to cut down on the complexity of SSIS. That tool really helps with a quick turnaround. I can do things quickly, and I can do things accurately. I can get better reporting on errors.""The security could be improved, as it is more important in our context.""SSIS doesn't have a very good user interface, but if you can work with it, it'll provide you with almost all of the functionality.""It would be nice if you could run SSIS on other environments besides Windows.""There is connectivity with other databases, however, this is the most significant issue that has to be addressed.""At one point, we did have to purchase an add-on.""We purchase an add on called task factory primarily to allow bulk delete, update and upsert capability. I'd like to see this be part of the standard package.""In terms of its performance, it could be better. That could be something that would be easy and welcomed as an upgrade."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I think it is cost conscious. It used to be very cheap and they have more recently bumped up the pricing, so it is competitive now."
  • "The price of Matillion ETL is reasonable."
  • "A rough estimation of the cost is around 20,000 dollars a month, however, this is dependent on the machine used and how Matillion ETL is used."
  • "The cost of the solution is high and could be reduced."
  • More Matillion ETL Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Based on my experience and understanding, Talend comes out to be a little bit expensive as compared to SSIS. The average cost of having Talend with Talend Management Console is around 72K per region, which is much higher than SSIS. SSIS works very well with Microsoft technologies, and if you have Microsoft technologies, it is not really expensive to have SSIS. If you have SQL Server, SSIS is free."
  • "We have an enterprise license for this solution."
  • "It comes bundled with other solutions, which makes it difficult to get the price on the specific product."
  • "All of my clients have this product included as part of their Microsoft license."
  • "SSIS is a cheaper option compared to the cost of other ETL tools."
  • "Our license with SSIS is annual."
  • "t's incredibly cost effective, easy to learn the basics quickly (although like all ETL tools requires the traditional learning curve to get good at) and has an immense user base."
  • "SSIS' licensing is a little high, but it gives good value for money."

    SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is a Microsoft platform designed to build enterprise-level data integration and data transformation solutions. Users now have the ability to solve intricate business queries by downloading and copying files, cleansing and mining data, loading data warehouses, and managing SQL Server objects and data through Integration Services. SSIS is a component of the Microsoft SQL Server data software used for many data migration tasks.

    SSIS loads data into one or more destinations by extracting and transforming data from a wide variety of sources such as XML data files, flat files, and relational data sources.

    Integration Services include:

    • An SSIS catalog database to manage, store, and run packages.
    • An ample set of built-in transformations and tasks.
    • Graphical tools for building packages.

    Create packages programmatically and code custom tasks through programming the extensive Integration Services. With graphical Integration Services, you can create solutions without writing any code.

    Benefits of SSIS

    There are many benefits of SSIS, such as:

    • Solve complex business problems - encrypt files with SSIS and send them to various network locations.

    • Migration of DTS packages to SSIS - users can migrate DTS packages to SSIS while choosing to run DTS packages using DTS runtime or incorporate DTS packages into SSIS.

    • Development of ETL processes - Microsoft’s SSIS packages provide the ability to extract, transform, and load data into data warehouses. This service takes data from various sources, like CSV files, XML files, flat files, and relational data sources and transforms and loads them to their destinations.

    • Data migration from other databases - with Integrations Services, users can transform data to make sure it complies with the rules of the database they are migrating to.

    • Managing and automating SQL server objects - SSIS packages can manage and automate SQL server objects which will help save you time and resources.

    Reviews from Real Users

    The SSIS platform stands out among its competitors for a variety of reasons. Two major ones are its debugging capabilities during data flow execution and its easy connectivity with other Microsoft tools.

    Muhammad J., a senior manager software developer at Techlogix, notes, "The debugging capabilities are great, particularly during data flow execution. You can look into the data and see what's going on in the pipeline."

    Ismail L., a data engineer at a tech service company, writes, "The most valuable thing is that it is easy to connect with Microsoft tools. In Europe, particularly in France, a lot of companies use Excel, SQL Server, and other Microsoft tools, and it is easier to connect SSIS with Microsoft tools than other products."
