Anypoint Platform

Pros:
  • Basically, it is used to solve business problems where integration needs to be done between a legacy system and Salesforce.
  • Its capable of handling the integration between a variety of connectors.
  • The transformation is just so simple. We can use XML, JSON, and Java for it.
Cons:
  • The functions used in the transformation connector should be prompted automatically.
  • RAML should be designed and compiled within the Anypoint studio.

Informatica Cloud

Informatica Cloud is a great tool for use when data must be formatted consistently. Once configured, it is very robust and reliable. It is also well-suited for an organization without a robust IT staff to maintain a full server infrastructure. It offers a cost-effective approach to high-quality data integration for even the largest organizations. Organizations without staff experienced in data analytics may find it challenging to take advantage of the more complex results of this tool.

  • It doesn't quite support complex implementations.
  • It doesn't support complex SQL Queries.
  • Working towards attaching a document to a mail, needs a work around. A shell script has to be written and to be executed.
  • Configuring integration for Re-processing of failed records needs proper design of the system.

Alternatives Considered

It enables customers to expose their APIs in a very simple and fast way. It can be used by non-expert developers. It is compliant with all major connection and data representation world standard.

Having used SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) in the past, Informatica Cloud was a huge-step up in functionality, usability and performance. Hands-down, Informatica Cloud is a much more robust product overall. While SSIS is well-suited for specific instances (i.e. SQL Server-specific implementations), Informatica Cloud is a much better product as an overall integration/transformation tool.

Return on Investment

  • Very expensive Enterprise Licence cost.
  • MuleSoft Anypoint Platformon cloud is very quick to set up (it is not intended for internal use).
  • DataWeave is very powerful to do transformations.
  • Many native connectors are available (Salesforce...).

  • Informatica Cloud has proven itself a worthwhile investment as it has allowed us to "retire" numerous other data systems through integration
  • The only negative to Informatica Cloud (the same with most other tools) is the substantial upfront cost of implementation (licensing/professional services, etc.)
