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.

Xactly Connect

When the client has source data in Salesforce, Workday or flat files, it works really well. If the client has too much data, it can be really slow or require lots of preprocessing. It's often better to do as much of the calculations as you can in the configuration rather than on the Xactly Connect side. So that regular comp admins with Incent Connect training but no Xactly Connect are able to make changes.

Cons

Azure Data Factory

  • Error Flagging, Details of the error code is not specific especially faced this during Azure Table load
  • Missing feature of Data exploration functionality similar to Synapse Data explorer
  • missing access to orchestrate/create stream analytics job
Gorthy Rohith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Xactly Connect

  • SQL isn't the same syntax in Connect as it is in Sequal Server Management Studio, making it difficult for communities outside of Xactly to help with certain issues.
  • Sometimes the scheduling part of the tool does not work as expected, but over all it is consistent.

Xactly is a very helpful tool ensuring appropriate and correct data is used when calculating commissions. The interface loads timely, but it is not intuitive to use. The learning curve to be proficient in Xactly takes a significant amount of time.

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
