Great tool for ETL with the ability to integrate with SAP products seamlessly. Supports Big data integration.

Matillion

I always suggest Matillion for organizations that do not want to spend money and time developing their own ETL tool, Matillion is a mature one and meet all requirements about it. It is important to check if you have any edge case and have a look if it is covered by Matillion or not.

Cons

SAP

  • Writing custom components is a complex process.
  • Along with ETL BODI should have some data quality integration.
  • Ready documentation of the code and inbuilt commenting on components.

Matillion

  • Passing variables between jobs (orchestration or transformation) feels a bit clunky. It can also be frustrating that you can't pass a variable back up to the calling orchestration job, you can only pass it down to child jobs.
  • It would be great to have some kind of debug mode, through which you're able to 'step through' the various tasks in an orchestration/transformation job.
  • Matillion's generic API functionality is difficult to understand. Things like handling pagination and rate limiting are complex. Although I understand improvements have been made in recent versions.

      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.

      Usability

      SAP

      It is a good ETL tool to use if you are SAP shop and looking for a simple and elegant solution for automation.

      Matillion

      Pretty good UI, especially for a completely web-based system. Source control integration is a bit clunky at times, but overall makes code versioning and branching much more simple, since it's largely within the same context as the rest of the code. Finding some core settings can be difficult - they're just not where one would expect them to be.

      Matillion

      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

      We used Airflow for a year before switching to Matillion. We switched to Matillion because the Airflow servers were not stable, and we didn't have any in-house expertise that could manage the Linux OS which Airflow is built on. We were constantly frustrated by the fact that we had to wait for a consultant whenever we wanted to manage one of the servers, or if something was down we had to wait for someone to fix it. Also, Airflow doesn't have a GUI that is drag and drop. It is a lot more work to manage the flow of the scripts in Airflow, and requires a lot more explanation, especially for an entry level data engineer. There is a lot more coding in Airflow, which is fine if you are a good coder. However, Matillion offers a bigger tool set for those who just want to focus on building an ETL pipeline, and don't care to do a lot of coding.

      Matillion

      The product scales great for small to medium size teams or groups. For groups larger it becomes more challenging and requires more individual instances depending on the volume of running jobs and concurrent users - it handles 10's of concurrent users and jobs very well but much larger than that would be extremely difficult on the largest instance or cluster that is available at this time.

      Return on Investment

      SAP

      • It was a packaged purchase of BO toolset including BOXI and BODI.
      • Optimized performance for integrating different data sources.
      • Simple and easy setup and maintenance cost.

      Matillion

      • Matillion had had a positive impact on our ability to scale up our ETL process without increasing our headcount. We've been able to double the number of jobs we have in the last year.
      • A positive impact on the amount of time we need to investigate failures. Coming from other tools that had high rates of failures (say 2 jobs failing a week), we have not seen as many technical failures from Matillion. This reduces the number of resources we focus on tracking down failures, fixing, and re-running jobs by 25%.
