"Mule works very well with Salesforce and CRMs."
"This is the easiest and best tool available."
"The API toolkit is the solution's most valuable aspect at this time, for our organization."
"It is very easy to use for building connectors. It comes with a lot of connectors. For example, it has different adapters for NetSuite, which are very easy to use. It also has Salesforce connectors. The object store feature is also really easy to use. Mule Anypoint Platform is also good in terms of performance and how it is managed behind the scenes."
"Overall, it is a pretty good product. It is also very scalable."
"This is a good platform for designing, flowing out APIs, and then doing API-based integrations."
"The monitoring capabilities of this product are very good because of the feedback it supplies in statistics."
"A very user friendly solution."
"I can connect with different databases such as Oracle Database or SQL Server. It allows you to extract the data from one database to another. I can structure the data by filtering and mapping the fields. It is very user-friendly. You need to know the basics of SQL development or SQL queries, and you can use this tool."
"Talend can connect to multiple data sources, including relational data sources, ERP, CRM, and others."
"Talend lets you do everything — mapping, workflow, and orchestration — in a single place."
"We're sold on the customization part of the solution."
"The best thing I have found with Talend Open Studio is their major support for the lookups."
"It has got so many connectors. It is intuitive and easy to use."
"The data integration aspect of the solution is excellent."
"It doesn't work well when you try using it for the processing layer."
"Mule should have better B2B integration."
"Better documentation, in particular with respect to the initial setup, would be helpful."
"Its documentation needed a little bit of work to make it more usable. It is a platform that is used mainly by developers and other people for connecting systems. Its documentation was confusing in some areas and was not very helpful in other areas. I had to go to a consultant to get some work done, which ideally shouldn't be required."
"The runtime management and connectors could use some work and are vulnerable to breakage after upgrades."
"Lacks intelligent management data and intelligent mappings."
"It has different types of subscriptions. For platinum or lower subscriptions, there are not too many things that can be done. We don't see many features. They should release a basic version that has logging and monitoring features. These features should come with Mule Anypoint Platform for free instead of making customers pay separately for these features. Its dashboard can be improved to have a lot of charts so that it is easy to visualize information. The utilization part can be improved. The dashboard is good currently, but it can be better. Other solutions like Elastic have a good dashboard, and they allow you to administer the product from the UI. Currently, for RTF, there is a different dashboard or utility. It would be good to include the same utility in the cloud solution. It would be good if there is a centralized repository that includes the links to the information about various troubleshooting issues. The documentation is there currently, and it is good, but the troubleshooting information is too scattered. We have to go to different links to find troubleshooting information. This kind of centralized repository would be helpful for new customers who are implementing this solution. It will be helpful to see different kinds of issues that can occur."
"The solution is very expensive. They need to work on the pricing."
"The pricing could be lower. They should work to make it more affordable."
"In terms of what can be improved, the scheduling is not there in the sister version, while it is there in the cloud one, which is a paid version. If all kinds of scheduling could be available on the Open Studio that we generally use and practice on, that would be great. The scheduling of the data migration is currently not available in the sister version of Talend Open Studio that we are working on. It is available in the advanced version of the Talend. This is the one thing that can be improvised."
"We don't get continuous replication of the data."
"The documentation is lacking within the product. They need to get better at all aspects of describing how it works and how to use it."
"As for improvement or additional features, I would like to know how to use Java in Talend and also how to use Talend in the cloud or in big data. I would prefer to have storage directly on Talend."
"It is not as visually appealing as some of the other tools."
"It gets the job done but it's a bit slow."
"The product could be more intuitive."
