    Azure Data Factory

    Suitable for virtually any scenario that involves working with linked Service, so that it is possible to connect Azure Data Factory to storage services for SQL data in the cloud, and that it is possible to access them at any time. Serves to make the information much cleaner and have the desired formats and structures in case of working with time tracking or general employee work tracking applications, so it is easy to create accurate and aesthetically acceptable analysis for general tracking software. It is extremely useful if you do not have any data server service, as Azure Data Factory has the ability to maintain almost 90 different data connectors without the need to use a server.

    Cons

    Azure Data Factory

    • Error Flagging, Details of the error code is not specific especially faced this during Azure Table load

    • missing access to orchestrate/create stream analytics job

    Informatica MDM

    • As far as I can see it exclusively uses the concept of "point to point" connectivity for fetching data. What this means is that Informatica MDM must have "knowledge" of all other systems, and keeps a direct connection to these systems. This is bad practice in environments that would benefit more from a microservice architecture. In those cases, it's especially bad, because not only does this break the SOA architecture, but it also "promotes" the idea of "point to point" connections among developers. The "point to point" mentality is the single most important danger to any SOA environment.
    • It's very hard to use! The learning curve is really steep. Also, it's really boring by design: having to open a large application, learning all of its intricate details, maintaining all connections and scheduled data load moments means you need developers that are seriously devoted to this application. This means those developers are kept from working in the field they know best and caused them to become developers in the first place, which is Oracle/Database developing. This makes it hard to find employees willing to perform this function.

    We have not had need to engage with Microsoft much on Azure Data Factory, but they have been responsive and helpful when needed. This being said, we have not had a major emergency or outage requiring their intervention. The score of seven is a representation that they have done well for now, but have not proved out their support for a significant issue

    I'm not sure since I never used support. My colleagues never had any issues with it, therefore my rating would be an 8 with a certain range of uncertainty.

    Alternatives Considered

    Azure Data Factory

    The easy integration with other Microsoft software as well as high processing speed, very flexible cost, and high level of security of Microsoft Azure products and services stack up against other similar products.

    Informatica MDM

    Informatica Cloud MDM was not available at the time of implementation. It has a direct connection with Salesforce, but as far as I can determine it is a solution that only addresses Salesforce and does not enable the sourcing of data from multiple external systems. Flat file support is lacking
