CloverDX

CloverDX designer as a standalone is well suited for fairly straightforward transformations of data. If you want to do large scale data integrations, then their server edition adds an extra level of automation and job control.

Informatica MDM

If your environment is clean and well organized, but at the same time has many application domains with their own data sources, Informatica MDM can be a really good factor in maintaining "single points of truth" for all this data. However, the more application domains you have, the less "clean" your environment becomes. If your application domain landscape consists of multiple technologies (C#, Oracle, JAVA, web-based, windows services, console apps, third-party tools, etc), your environment becomes a real nightmare to maintain unless you implement a service-oriented approach. And this is where Informatica MDM fails completely since it promotes a "point to point" scenario. At least this is my experience. It could be that Informatica MDM supports a service-oriented approach, but I have not seen this. I could be that the developers in my organization who have expert Informatica MDM knowledge are just more "point to point" oriented. But even if that is the case, it's a valid argument against Informatica MDM, since it's already hard enough to find developers who are dedicated to this product, it becomes impossible to find SOA oriented developers.

Cons

CloverDX

  • The initial learning curve is a little steep. Not very steep or super steep, just a little steep.
  • Having enough memory for large multi-step problems can be an issue if the graph isn't designed well.
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Informatica MDM

  • Mapping within the tool can be difficult. But that is slated for upgrade with the next version.
  • Many detailed screens for the developer interface. This makes it hard to find options sometimes.
  • Address validation sometimes leads to incorrect results. This is my biggest issue with the product.

While CloverDX has an active forum for users to submit questions and assist with answers, their in house support team is incredibly responsive when I've contacted them for assistance. This seems almost at odds with most other software companies who try to save money on tech support by promoting a forum or knowledge base.

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

CloverDX

CloverDX was a less expensive alternative to Talend and had a more intuitive interface from what I could see during the evaluation.
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Informatica MDM

Less expensive then the competitors, modules are self-sustained and able to function directly. It involves less coding, and a lot of things can be done in house!

Return on Investment

CloverDX

  • Work that use to take multiple people 20 to 30 hours a week to complete each has now been fully automated to where only 1 or 2 hours a week for maintenance is required.
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Informatica MDM

  • Informatica MDM allowed for a faster standup of our Salesforce environment.
  • Informatica MDM provided a means to keep our multiple source systems synchronized.
  • Informatica MDM can be pricey but is definitely a leader in the space.
