Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is really easy to set up and the interface is easy to use.""In StreamSets, everything is in one place.""StreamSets’ data drift resilience has reduced the time it takes us to fix data drift breakages. For example, in our previous Hadoop scenario, when we were creating the Sqoop-based processes to move data from source to destinations, we were getting the job done. That took approximately an hour to an hour and a half when we did it with Hadoop. However, with the StreamSets, since it works on a data collector-based mechanism, it completes the same process in 15 minutes of time. Therefore, it has saved us around 45 minutes per data pipeline or table that we migrate. Thus, it reduced the data transfer, including the drift part, by 45 minutes.""StreamSets data drift feature gives us an alert upfront so we know that the data can be ingested. Whatever the schema or data type changes, it lands automatically into the data lake without any intervention from us, but then that information is crucial to fix for downstream pipelines, which process the data into models, like Tableau and Power BI models. This is actually very useful for us. We are already seeing benefits. Our pipelines used to break when there were data drift changes, then we needed to spend about a week fixing it. Right now, we are saving one to two weeks. Though, it depends on the complexity of the pipeline, we are definitely seeing a lot of time being saved."

"Technical support responds quickly.""The dashboard provided by Oracle Integration Cloud for monitoring and error handling is very intuitive.""Oracle Integration Cloud Service integrates well and is user-friendly. If you are not a developer or ops engineer you can still use the solution with ease. You do not need to have developers' knowledge, you can easily adapt and learn quickly to integrate the services. They have good documentation.""The most valuable features of this solution are the SFTP adapters, file adapters, and risk adapters, that we use in everyday projects.""The out-of-box integration between Oracle and SAP is really beneficial""In general, there were a lot of great utilities for working with files.""The initial setup is easy.""OIC offers a number of pre-built technology and SaaS adapters for high productivity for a wide range of target systems, both in-house via agents and cloud/SaaS, via a very flexible range of interfaces."

"The solution is a SaaS and does not require a complex setup.""The most valuable aspect of this solution is that it is very intuitive and has a very flat learning curve.""We find it effortless to set up. We really don't have to do anything other than finding the application in the Zapier catalog. And as long as the application has been re-integrated into Zapier, they're able to then just provide the connection details and hook it up.""Zapier is user friendly and makes it easy to integrate different tools. It has a drag and drop functionality which makes it easy to connect environments."

Cons
"Currently, we can only use the query to read data from SAP HANA. What we would like to see, as soon as possible, is the ability to read from multiple tables from SAP HANA. That would be a really good thing that we could use immediately. For example, if you have 100 tables in SQL Server or Oracle, then you could just point it to the schema or the 100 tables and ingestion information. However, you can't do that in SAP HANA since StreamSets currently is lacking in this. They do not have a multi-table feature for SAP HANA. Therefore, a multi-table origin for SAP HANA would be helpful.""If you use JDBC Lookup, for example, it generally takes a long time to process data.""We've seen a couple of cases where it appears to have a memory leak or a similar problem.""The logging mechanism could be improved. If I am working on a pipeline, then create a job out of it and it is running, it will generate constant logs. So, the logging mechanism could be simplified. Now, it is a bit difficult to understand and filter the logs. It takes some time."

More StreamSets Cons →

"The bulk processing needs improvement.""The error retrying mechanism could be improved. If an error occurs, it can be retried automatically, it would be helpful.""Configurable timeouts on each connection would be good.""The support and resources were lacking — they weren't there.""It lacks configurable time-outs on connections. Configurable time-outs is an important nonfunctional property that it is currently missing. I have also written about it in an article, and I have also submitted some enhancement requests. Its visual designer could be a bit more responsive. It would also be good to get more XSLT editing capabilities.""Make it more similar to the on-premises features. For example, if you can edit the code directly rather than just dragging and dropping, or if you can edit the examples by going into the background, and one-click migration, I'd like to see included in the next release.""The solution doesn't currently have a fully fledged workflow feature like they have in OIM.""Oracle Integration Cloud Service can improve the downloading and uploading of files. I've submitted this issue to the Oracle Idea Labs. The issue is from the front end of Oracle Integration Cloud, we cannot download or upload a file directly or drag and drop it."

"System-to-system is fine, but when it comes to system-to-user, where Zapier is helping to communicate to a user, that's a one-way communication. If that user has to perform some action on that notification, the action isn't handled by Zapier. So there's no way to orchestrate that and it's very cumbersome.""Some recent changes to the solution have made it bulky and not as intuitive to use as it previously was.""The user interface for Zapier could be improved. It also takes some time to sync the data between different environments.""The pricing of the solution is quite expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are running the community version right now, which can be used free of charge."
  • "StreamSets Data Collector is open source. One can utilize the StreamSets Data Collector, but the Control Hub is the main repository where all the jobs are present. Everything happens in Control Hub."
  • "It has a CPU core-based licensing, which works for us and is quite good."
  • More StreamSets Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It has different licensing models. The most upfront and most transparent is the pay-as-you-go model. It also has a certain messages-per-hour limit. There is a certain amount that is charged per hour, and a certain number of messages are included in it, which you can scale up as you go. Its licensing is very competent and easy."
  • "In the case of Oracle Integration Cloud, costs can be "predictable" as far as the platform and infrastructure are concerned."
  • "It specifies how much data you use and how much storage you require, among other things."
  • "The price of Oracle Integration Cloud Service is good. It is reasonable and is priced well for the market segment. The model they use is on a per-package unit and we have a two-year subscription."
  • More Oracle Integration Cloud Service Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It's very straightforward licensing. There's only one cost you have to pay, and if you want a relevant pricing plan, I think you have two or three different models or packages which include the number of notifications or Zaps, as they call it, that you can program."

    Zapier is a tool for primarily non-technical users to connect together web apps.

    An integration between two apps is called a Zap. A Zap is made up of a Trigger and one or more Actions or Searches.

    Whenever the trigger happens in one app, Zapier will automatically perform the actions or searches in another app in order.

    Zaps are very lightweight and easy to set up. Zaps do not import or export old data (they only operate on new items created after the Zap is enabled). Zaps are also not kept in sync ("two way syncing") after the Zap is triggered.

    Zaps are deceivingly simple if you're used to dealing with complex and difficult integrations. Their simplicity is what enables anyone to create them.
