Informatica PowerCenter

Used as our only ETL tool and we continue to expand it's capabilities

Still coming up to speed with the product, it is not intuitive but I am finding a lot of helpful training.

Informatica Cloud Data Integration

Mature but not quite there

I have worked with Informatica for many years and the same issues keep coming up. In this scenario, the PowerCenter functionality was missing connectors to OData and REST services. We spoke and met with Informatica and they said we would have to purchase new connectors or extend to the cloud which handles this seamlessly through their standard connectors. We were given this tool to solve that problem. We had to setup the environment without assistance with Informatica. After setting it up we had to find and download the connector and then had to learn how to use it. The documentation ALWAYS misses key steps and setup procedures causing a lot of rework. Also the documentation is typically dated and is not current. After all this work, the connection still didn't work and we had to contact customer support and the issue was escalated to engineering. We have seen this time and again.

Implementation was easy, but additional source DB drivers were needed, special for NOSQL

Ease of use. Implemented several ETLs to make our workload efficient

Informatica has rocky reception

Product is not working quite how we would expect. Not utilizing the reusable assets. Mostly just writing SQL Queries that are executed.

Godd product(s) but many components to understand.

Good implementation partner. Pricing metrix expensive. Difficult to understand products as described in proposals.

Tremendous breadth in their toolset. Licensing of various connectors or "add-ons" is often confusing.

Rollout was successful despite poor planning and communication.
