Matillion

Matillion is great for handling bulk and 'delta' loads to your warehouse, i.e. updating the warehouse with only those records updated since the last execution of the pipeline. The components and Python scripting provide a huge amount of flexibility in what the pipeline does, but you do need to have the expertise to know how to implement it properly.Matillion has been less good at extracting data from APIs. The functionality was found to be complex and it was unclear how to manage things like pagination and rate limiting in API calls.

Pros

SAS DataFlux

  • The workspace is drag and drop, which makes it intuitive and easy to use.
  • Server creation and management is robust. We haven't had to worry too much about it once we got it created.
  • The job scheduler is very simple and intuitive.
  • Matillion allows you to run Python, which grants almost unlimited flexibility, even without using any other components.

Cons

SAS DataFlux

  • DataFlux handled all of our data integration needs. It could be considered pricey when compared to Microsoft's bundled SSIS product.
Robert Goodman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Matillion

  • Limited selection of instance sizes - Larger organizations and groups my need to set up multilple instances depending on estimations on concurrent users.
  • Lack of complete github, gitlab, or other source control integration - it has internal versioning but it is limited. Manual job exports currently don't lend well for useful DIFFs comparison when using those technologies.
  • Needs more options for authentication and security - User creation is very manual and can be tedious and difficult to manage for larger installations.

We are happy with the software and its functionality. As a SAS-shop, DataFlux is a logical choice for complex data integration.

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.

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.

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

There's a number of systems not available to enter in here that we also took a look at: AWS Data pipeline, Airflow, Xplenty, etc. The reason we chose Matillion is for the balance of features (ability to connect into cloud data sources like Jira), a simple interface to put together Data pipelines (that required little to no coding), and a reasonable price point. Matillion is pretty unique in that it hits a balance of all three of those requirements.

Instance size can be upgraded or downgraded with few clicks and hourly billing rate will change immediately. No need to restart Matillion instance. Matillion Enterprise edition has several benefits and will be activated automatically by configuring ">=m4." large instance size

Matillion

  • I was able to build a complete commissions processing system for over 3500 employees using Matillion in just over a month. This included gathering data from 5 different sources, combining them together appropriately and building in the business rules. I was awarded one of the top awards our company gives for this project.
  • Our big three Business Intelligence tools: Matillion, Redshift and DOMO allow us to give our employees the right data at the right time. Our productivity has increased as 75%+ of our employees look at their data every day they work.
