AWS Data Exchange fits best for scenarios where you have datasets that you would like to sell and you want to deliver it to anyone who would like to purchase it. It really beats having to set up downloads via your own website or portal. However, it can get complicated to manage if you're trying to deliver a dataset a client has already paid for.

Matillion is very strong when it comes to its SQL components and plays very nicely with loading files from S3 to Redshift. It is less desirable for those who want to use a lot of python though, at that point their experience would be limiting.

There have been a lot of problems with ADX. First, the entire system is incredibly clunky from beginning to end.First, by AWS's own admission they're missing a lot of "tablestakes functionality" like the ability to see who is coming to your pages, more flexibility to edit and update your listings, the ability to create a storefront or catalog that actually tries to sell your products. All-in-all you're flying completely blind with AWS. In our convos with other sellers we strongly believe very little organic traffic is flowing through the AWS exchange. For the headache, it's not worth the time or the effort. It's very difficult to market or sell your products.We've also had a number of simple UX bugs where they just don't accurately reflect the attributes of your product. For instance for an S3 bucket they had "+metered costs" displayed to one of our buyers in the price. This of course caused a lot of confusion. They also misrepresented the historical revisions that were available in our product sets because of another UX bug. It's difficult to know what other things in the UX are also broken and incongruent.We also did have a purchase, but the seller is completely at their whim at providing you fake emails, fake company names, fake use cases because AWS hasn't thought through simple workflows like "why even have subscription confirmation if I can fake literally everything about a subscription request." So as a result we're now in an endless, timewasting, unhelpful thread with AWS support trying to get payment. They're confused of what to do and we feel completely lost.Lastly, the AWS team has been abysmal in addressing our concerns. Conversations with them result in a laundry list of excuses of why simple functionalities are so hard (including just having accurate documentation). It was a very frustrating and unproductive call. Our objective of our call was to help us see that ADX is a well-resourced and well-visioned product. Ultimately they couldn't clearly articulate who they built the exchange for both on the seller side and the buyer side.Don't waste your time. This is at best a very foggy experiment. Look at other sellers, they have a lot of free pages to try to get attention, but then have smart tactics to divert transactions away from the ADX. Ultimately, smart move. Why give 8-10% of your cut to a product that is basically bare-bones infrastructure.

With the current experience of Matillion, we are likely to renew with the current feature option but will also look for improvement in various areas including scalability and dependability. 1. Connectors: It offers various connectors option but isn't full proof which we will be looking forward as we grow. 2. Scalability: As usage increase, we want Matillion system to be more stable.

One of the key strengths of Matillion is its user-friendly interface, which allows non-technical users to easily set up data integrations and transformations. The platform supports a wide range of data sources, including cloud-based databases, file systems, and APIs, making it an excellent choice for organizations that need to work with data from multiple sources.

Overall, I've found Matillion to be responsive and considerate. I feel like they value us as a customer even when I know they have customers who spend more on the product than we do. That speaks to a motive higher than money. They want to make a good product and a good experience for their customers. If I have any complaint, it's that support sometimes feels community-oriented. It isn't always immediately clear to me that my support requests are going to a support engineer and not to the community at large. Usually, though, after a bit of conversation, it's clear that Matillion is watching and responding. And responses are generally quick in coming.

Matillion provided much more flexibility than the other products we tested, at a much lower price point. Other products, in my view, had a cleaner/simpler UI but I also felt that they offered much less functionality. A key design pattern we had to deliver was to perform delta loads on the warehouse (i.e. updating only those records updated in the database since the last execution). Some other tools seemed to assume that you were accessing data from transactional databases where records were not updated, only ever created. This meant that we could not use them to deliver our Warehouse. Other tools that did have equivalent flexibility/functionality were a lot more expensive than Matillion.
Read full review Scalability
Matillion has a nice scalability capacity, and once it has been stored in our AWS cloud it makes it much easier to scale it on demand. The reason I'm not rating it as 10 is that there is no way to migrate or move it to another cloud in an easy way.
Read full review Return on Investment Reduced time to publish datasets for sale by more than 80% Increased net profit from dataset sales by ~10% Reduced data delivery time to clients by 15% Read full review Cost is okay, but is going up significantly soon. Value proposition is dwindling. It made it easy to get up-and-running as far as getting data into our data lake. Good for a "quick win." Pay-as-you-go model is good for smaller organizations.
