"It's a competent product."
"The technical support is very good."
"It is also easy to learn and user-friendly. Microsoft is also good in terms of technical support. They have built a large community all over the world."
"The script component is very powerful, things that you cannot normally do, is feasible through C#."
"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."
"The interface is very user-friendly."
"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."
"You can get data from any data source with SSIS and dump it to any outside source. It is helpful. Getting, extracting, converting, and dumping data doesn't require much effort because we can do everything in the user interface. You drag and drop, then give the required input. It's intuitive."
"The most valuable features are the ETL tools."
"The most interesting aspect of the solution for us is that Talend Open Studio has a good balance between the features and the cost of the data management platform."
"We're able to handle large amounts of data with ease."
"Talend is safe to use because it is very restrictive. It is easy to use when one learns how to manipulate data with SQL."
"A very user friendly solution."
"Talend can connect to multiple data sources, including relational data sources, ERP, CRM, and others."
"Talend Studio has the ability to use it to ensure data quality."
"Talend lets you do everything — mapping, workflow, and orchestration — in a single place."
"When I compare Talend and SSIS, Talend provides more features. With Talend, we can handle a large volume of data. Talend is usually used to treat a large volume of data, which makes it better than SSIS on the data side. Talend also has a very good Talend Management Console to schedule the jobs and do other things. It can also be easily connected to version control tools such as GitHub or SVN. The last time I used SSIS, it was connected through TSS for the Windows Console version. I am not sure it has been improved or not. If it is not improved, Microsoft should improve it. They should change the product to provide another console."
"Sometimes we need to connect to AWS to get additional data sources, so we have to install some external LAN and not a regular RDBMS. We need external tools to connect. It would be great if SSIS included these tools. I'd also like some additional features for row indexing and data conversion."
"The solution could improve by having quicker release updates."
"You have to write push down join & lookup SQL to the database yourself via stored procedures or use of the SQL Task to get very high performance. That said, this is a common complaint for nearly all ETL tools on the market and those that offer an alternative such as Informatica offer them at a very expensive add-on price."
"I would like to see better integration with Power BI."
"The solution could improve on integrating with other types of data sources."
"It's a legacy tool, that is nearing the end of its useful life."
"It should have other programming languages supported as well from a scripting perspective. Currently, only C# and VB.NET are supported, which limits it to .NET. It should have Java support as well."
"The pricing could be lower. They should work to make it more affordable."
"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."
"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."
"The server-side should be completely revamped."
"Talend should improve the log and error handling to better track the errors you find during development. Sometimes it's challenging to see what's causing an issue, and tracking that on Talend is complicated."
"Technical support and customer service need to be improved."
"It gets the job done but it's a bit slow."
"The solution should offer better integration with other products."
