AWS Data Exchange

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.

SolarWinds Task Factory

Since I started working with this great tool all data analysis programs have been running effectively. Implementation of projects and tasks have been effective and reliable. Data collected from each department gives us working plan on better management of various programs. The Dimension Merge SCD Transform helps us to load large volumes of data within a short period of time.

Pros

AWS Data Exchange

  • Simplified data delivery
  • Ability to create any amount of data products
  • Ability to integrate payment plans with data products
  • Tracking data downloads and users
  • Integration with other AWS data services
Ramindu Deshapriya | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Task Factory

  • The single most beneficial component to Task Factory is the Upsert component. If you're familiar with writing MERGE statements in T-SQL, you'll appreciate the Upsert component. Drag the component into your Data Flow and a few clicks later you have a MERGE without the code complexities.
  • Where some native SSIS components leave you wanting more, Task Factory extends on many of these components as well as support for data sources not native to SSIS components.
  • The number of extra components that come in the Task Factory tool kit will expand your tool belt to do just about anything you need or want to accomplish in SSIS.

Cons

AWS Data Exchange

  • Integration with more data sources
  • Ability to deliver data to clients without AWS accounts
  • Inclusion of direct data downloads in addition to asynchronous methods
Ramindu Deshapriya | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Task Factory

  • It was built by Pragmatic Works who sold it to SentryOne and now Solar Winds, concerned about future support. SolarWinds is discontinuing support for related products such as BiXpress.
  • Had issues with connecting to certain versions of SQL Server - would fail when deploying one package - had to deploy the entire solutions.
  • Occasional random failures observed with the Filter tranform.

Task Factory has become a key product for our use of doing ETL work in SSIS. Their custom SSIS components allow us to work simply on the data engineering side of things. We can ignore the lower level work needed to connect to disparate data sources. This allows us to work faster and provide more value to the business

Overall it went smoothly. Had a couple of gotchas with licensing and upgrading but nothing that really stopped us.

SolarWinds Task Factory

ZappySys is an alternative provider that we tested. However, we found the ease of use, set up and installation to be much simplier and quicker using Task Factory. ZappySys has a number of the same connectors but are more difficult to setup and the GUI is not as intuitive and simple to use.

Return on Investment

AWS Data Exchange

  • 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%
Ramindu Deshapriya | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Task Factory

  • We were able to support our developers with Task Factory features and reduce the development time by 40%.
  • Recently Task Factory has changed their pricing module and it seems to be pretty costly for our process. Our business team has started to evaluate whether this is worth it going forward.
