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

Actian

  • Map multiple source and destination tables - what would be done in many steps in SSIS can be done in one or two "maps" in Data Integrator.
  • Platform independent, cloud based, no client software.
  • Conversion of data types, write flat files - this helps us with integrating systems.
  • Fairly straightforward to use if the user has ETL experience.

Talend

  • The speed of migration is very good for a Free ETL tool.
  • The amount of components or connectors we have is impressive.

Cons

Actian

  • 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.

  • Can face issues with certain big data spaces

      We use Talend Data Integration day in and day out. It is the best and easiest tool to jump on to and use. We can build a basic integration super-fast. We could build basic integrations as fast as within the hour. It is also easy to build transformations and use Java to perform some operations.

      Good support, specially when it relates to PROD environment. The support team has access to the product development team. Things are internally escalated to development team if there is a bug encountered. This helps the customer to get quick fix or patch designed for problem exceptions. I have also seen support showing their willingness to help develop custom connector for a newly available cloud based big data solution

      Alternatives Considered

      Actian

      Data Integrator was initially a part of a package deal for us with our new Student Information System. It was chosen prior to my arrival at the institution. Since I discovered we have SQL Server licenses, we have decided to use SSIS instead since I have a background in the MSBI stack and SSIS appears to be more straightforward (process flow philosophy vs "map" philosophy.)

      Talend

      Talend is much versatile in assimilating various different business use cases. It covers more functionality and is packed with tons of features to explore. It has the ability to fine tune to each project, and not be a one-fits all solution. Problems with Excel, is that it is not suited for large projects, collaboration work. Alteryx is a very costly alternative.

      • Easy to build complex data transformations.
      • Licensing model isn't that flexible.
      • Memory mangement for huge volumes of information. You have to modify ETL designs to handle it properly.
