    Matillion

    If your company has ever had issues with un-transparent data pipelines, difficulty understanding orchestration of workflows, and issues with data engineering retention and ramp-up, then Matillion is likely the right solution for you. It doesn't require heavy technical skills, just a strong understanding of Data-Eng Concepts. It's low-code/no-code optionality allows for everyone to come in and quickly understand how jobs are interconnected without having to cross navigate multiple systems for connectors, transformations, loads, and logging. It's an all-in-one solution that complements more specialized solutions like Fivetran and Hightouch. You can even set up python connections to orchestrate Fivetran and Hightouch into a Matillion workflow.

    Pros

    SAS DataFlux

    • dfPower Studio connects to virtually any data source, and any dfPower Studio user in any department can use dfPower Studio to profile, cleanse, integrate, enrich, monitor, and otherwise improve data quality throughout the enterprise. dfPower Architect, an innovative job flow builder, enables users to build complex management workflows quickly and logically.
    • DataFlux Integration Server supports the ability to run batch dfPower Studio jobs in a client/server environment.
    • DataFlux Integration Server for SAS additionally enables allows SAS programs to invoke DataFlux batch jobs from a SAS program and allows SAS programs to call a business service that was designed in the dfPower Studio client environment.

    Matillion

    • Matillion's UI makes it easier to understand the flow of data in your data pipeline.
    • Custom Python scripts make it easier to manage and manipulate variables and also to create custom functions (e.g. we use one to post messages to Slack when jobs have failed/succeeded).
    • Handling failures in processes is straightforward.

    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

    • The Python script component needs a friendlier window in which to edit your scripts. The script is not searchable, and tabbing is frustrating.
    • The High Availability server configuration was not working for us. It was allowing duplicate jobs to run, and causing a lot of confusion in the scheduler. Love the idea, but the implementation fell short.
    • Better alerting around queued jobs would be nice. Sometimes jobs start queuing and nothing runs. Usually this is the result of a badly written job, but it would be nice to get alerts.

    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.

    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.

    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

    SAS DataFlux

    • Complex data integration.
    • SAS integration.
    Robert Goodman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Matillion

    • Load data in Snowflake with minimal efforts. Loading data from REST API's require few hours instead of days. Effective manpower utilization
    • Upscale or downscale instance size on demand which makes it a cost-effective solution
    • No need to maintain and upgrade infrastructure which means no separate operational cost and downtime
