If you'll be working with 3 or more integration services you might need to use Mule.

Pros

  • If you are working with 3 or more services to integrate with a different data source, you'll be able to see the benefits of using Mule.
  • In terms of usability, you can develop an API even not fluent in any programming languages.
  • Mule also provides a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus.

  • Informatica Cloud is a great tool for automating data imports. Raw data files can be scheduled to run at designated times, and using pre-built mappings ensures that the data goes into the system accurately each time.
  • It is also a great tool for converting raw data into specific formatting. For example, configuring the mapping so that the first letter of a first, middle or last name is always capitalized.
  • Additionally, Informatica Cloud has a built-in field-matching tool so that records that already exist are updated rather than having duplicates created.

Cons

  • Responsive IDE. More likely they need to improve the IDE as it lags whenever you are working with 20-30 APIs in a package.

  • Learning the syntax for formatting the data can be difficult, and some of the functions are not as intuitive as they could be.
  • Power Centers are difficult to create on your own. A power center is a tool that converts one file type to another prior to importing the data: for example, changing a .txt. file to a .csv file.
  • Making sense of certain error reports can also be challenging. When a file errors and does not import, the system will provide a report so that errors can be fixed. These reports do not always provide straightforward reasons why the file did not import.

Alternatives Considered

Informatica Cloud (IC) and Dataloader are similar products, and we actually use both. IC is a much better tool for automating and standardizing data imports, but Dataloader is much better suited for ad-hoc data imports

Return on Investment

  • Overall a good tool when comparing pricing and features provided together

  • One positive ROI is that Informatica Cloud ensures that data is being imported in the same format each and every time so a user can be confident of data integrity.
  • Secondly, being able to match of certain fields prevents record duplication.
