Actian DataConnect

If your company houses a lot of data locally and needs to free up space, the Actian DataConnect Hybrid Cloud Data Warehouse is an excellent solution for the price. It also allows for complex queries and even some basic data analytics, like Market Basket Analysis. Their free trial period is extremely convenient and you may discover more uses for it than you originally think.

Pros

Actian DataConnect

  • 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.

Automate.io

  • Automatically populates information into other applications.
  • Saves tedious work & time checking on information.
  • Set it up once and it runs as needed.

Cons

Actian DataConnect

  • Sometimes the screen does not load- since it is a web based software, this can be seen as a reliability issue.
  • "Maps" can become somewhat complex, and between multiple developers this can be painful when sharing or explaining others' work.
  • The concept of macros adds flexibility in how to solve problems, but is a separate language and can take time to learn and master.
Justin Duperre | TrustRadius Reviewer

Automate.io

  • Speed. Screens sometimes take a long time to load, and data lists occasionally load very slowly or not at all, requiring a refresh.

Actian DataConnect is a great product for data storage, processing, and complex querying. It also has the added benefits of basic data analytics and data mining. We were surprised at how easy it was to perform Market Basket Analysis. I would highly recommend this system to a large business and encourage you to start a free trial period.

Jay from Automate.io has been very helpful in fixing a problem (my fault - I forgot to read the guide), but he did so in a way that he clearly understood my automation objectives and could provide relevant and handy guidance.

Make sure the person managing it knows APIs and Databases, so they can 'understand' what Automate does and offers. Without such conceptual understanding, Automate is too geeky. WITH such conceptual understanding, Automate is a Church Picnic easy.

Alternatives Considered

Actian DataConnect

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.

Automate.io

  • Automate.io is way more friendly and easy to use
  • Zapier is more expensive
  • Way too many errors
  • Zapier Api interaction is not the best

Return on Investment

Actian DataConnect

  • This tool was chosen prior to my arrival and was used to build three integrations. We have decided to switch to SSIS since we have licenses for it and it is a more common tool for ETL integrations.
  • It has been difficult to network with individuals that have experience with this tool.
  • Having been a part of a software package purchased, we have chosen to use a different tool for future integrations and plan to rewrite existing integrations.
Justin Duperre | TrustRadius Reviewer

Automate.io

  • Integration helps numerous departments who are now able to see the data ROI: priceless.
  • Dozens of hours saved each month in following up and tracking results ROI: thousands/yr.
