Alooma

Very appropriate for managing an ELT stack -- Alooma handles the 'E' and 'L' pieces very well. Due to the way transformation is setup, it is more on the lightweight side of things and thus works for this kind of stack. For more traditional ETL stacks, Alooma would probably not be the right fit.

IBM App Connect

IBM App Connect is ideal for consolidating data from a wide array of sources. It supports multiple file and data formats and handles interconversions seamlessly. Reporting atop this application is also a very straightforward process.

Pros

Alooma

  • Transformation of data before entering the data warehouse -- allows for a consistent/understandable schema for analytics teams.
  • Adding of additional data sources: Alooma has a large library of pre-built, common 3rd party vendors for which data is often needed to be ETL-ed.

IBM App Connect

  • Securely expose APIs to Intranet/Internet
  • The pn-premise set up of API Connect is fairly easier compared to Apigee.
  • The development of API proxy is fairly easy.

Cons

Alooma

  • More tools on managing the data warehouse itself. Although great on the ingest and transformation of data, more help provided by the tool on managing the outputs would be welcome.
  • Increase possibilities in the transformation step, rather than single event transformations.

IBM App Connect

  • The UI crashed constantly while trying to develop integrations.
  • The UI was not nearly as intuitive as many of its competitors in the iPaaS space, which lead to a much larger learning curve.

It is the best on-premise application to cloud integration in the market. I guess IBM is planning to integrate IBM App Connect with the IBM API Connect solution.

You can do some really powerful things with this system. The overall design is an attempt to make configurable some of the routine tasks/common functionality, but allow for development/customization of the core of the application.

Support is good, however it takes longer than expected to get responses. When bugs are reported they often seem to fall into a black hole.

Alternatives Considered

Alooma

Haven't used the alternatives, since Alooma was one of the earlier ones to the market. From a cursory viewing, however, the features seem to match relatively similarly.

IBM App Connect

WebSphereCast Iron is preferred for our sales and delivery teams over Informatica. We find the products and teams for WebSphere Cast Iron easier to work with here and find WebSphere Cast Iron better when integrating with non-Salesforce systems. WebSphere Cast Iron struggles to compete with Jitterbit in most customer and project segments when Salesforce is involved in the system integrations. Jitterbit is highly aligned with the Salesforce product roadmap and features, including Lightning Connect and Wave Analytics Cloud.
