Actian DataConnect

The choice to use Actian DataConnect really comes down to pricing and the type of integration project you are performing, specifically with the requirements, whether you want the integration to be on-premise or in the cloud, can you install agents on your servers etc. For integration tools it runs head to head with its competitors.

Pros

  • The large connector base for DataConnect is outstanding. However even when they do not have a custom connector, they have a web services Invoker which allows you to connect to any web services.
  • The underlying scripting language is Visual Basic-ish. Very easy to start.
  • The product has been around a long time, through multiple company acquistions, and still is a competitive player via pricing.
  • Support team is awesome.
  • Large user community.

  • Easy to use
  • Focus on analyzing and not on finding and loading data
  • "One version of the truth"

Cons

  • Integration Manager needs better scheduling improvements. Like dependencies, and not running a process again if the prior run is still running.
  • New connector development does not seem a priority.

  • I would like to have more modules. Eg. : supply chain tool.

Alternatives Considered

As I stated earlier, DataConnect makes a head-to-head run against the others. It has advantages and disadvantages compared to the competitors. The choice really comes down to pricing and specific requirement needs for the project you are planning. Questions such as On-premise or Cloud, Security, and Specific Connectors available will drive your decision.

Cognos is very expensive and needs heavy IT-team to implement it.

Additional Pricing Details
The On-Premise or SaaS solutions are the same price; we provide a dedicated machine or virtual machine for both. For 10 users, the budget is from $15,000 to $90,000 for a full Business Intelligence solution (including licenses and maintenance for 3 years). The installation and configuration cost depends on customer's data architecture, volume and number of sources. It also depends on customizations required (i.e.: exporting pixel to pixel PDF files to a SharePoint platform).
