Dataloader is an incredible asset for a large organization or an organization that has a robust Salesforce environment. Specifically, Dataloader has allowed our sales team to focus on driving sales while our operations team can load the data they need in a manner that allows for robust reporting and tracking on our sales process. Organizations with less robust Salesforce environments or Salesforce environments in which many people are expected to maintain their own information likely do not need Dataloader.

Matillion
It is very well suited for ETL on the cloud. Whenever there is something that can be accomplished with no code or little code, Matillion is a good tool. However, if your pipeline requires a lot of customizations, Matillion should be avoided.

Pros
Salesforce
  • Extracting Salesforce attachments in original file format! I do not know of a tool that can do this better, or more efficiently! This is a huge benefit to companies that would like to extract attachments from Salesforce for tasks like data migrations.
  • Cross-object data extract within one file. You can pull data from related objects as long as there is a populated lookup from the object you are extracting, to another object (Child or Parent).
  • UI is simple and requires very little to no training. Given the acquisition of Mulesoft by Salesforce, I would not be surprised if DataLoader.IO is rolled out as the new global data loading tool for Salesforce.

  • We leveraged Matillion’s no-code principals to make data manipulation easy for our internal customers. People who don't know how to use SQL no longer need to. Everything in Matillion is self-explained with no or little coding.
  • We connected Matillion to our data warehouse to allow people to read raw data, transform it, then write results back to their sandbox databases. The drag and drop component design allowed customers to create complex data models at the speed of thought without any risk to production data.
  • With sharing capabilities between projects enabled, everyone was able to help each other when questions arose which instilled a strong sense of collaboration and community.

Cons
Salesforce
  • At the moment, I can't find a way to rename jobs. This would be useful to organize what was previously created hastily by techs in a rush.
  • A preview of the job, especially upserts, would take a great deal of stress away from some of us (especially those who are not so confident in their ETL practice).
  • A native vlookup equivalent may be a welcome addition.

  • I think a non-CLI approach to installing and uninstalling python libraries would be nice. I mean, it isn't difficult to install a python library via Linux or CLI, but I imagine most companies don't feel comfortable allowing Matillion users to go on a virtual server and installing it themselves. Requirement.txt file for installing libraries would be simple, and maybe that could also be used to uninstall libraries as well......or maybe the library gets automatically downloaded if it is imported into a python script but the library doesn't exist.
  • Python Component is lacking very much in terms of UI. It would be unrealistic for me to suggest Matillion build its own EDI, but it would be nice if a python component could connect to a local IDE. Right now, if you want to write any decent length python code, you are going to be stuck copying and pasting your code from your local IDE.
  • It is also very difficult to debug in Matillion because you can't set breakpoints. Local IDE integration can resolve that.
  • I would like to have more templates to copy from for certain simplistic scenarios. For instance, a template for a job that fails which sends an AWS SNS with the Job name, component it failed on, and the error message. It wasn't as simple as I thought it would be to figure out and having to use a shared job for such circumstances can be painful because you have to export a bunch of variables.
  • There should be a drop down list for Global Matillion variables as it is difficult to remember at times.

It is easy to use and doesn't require a security token, so I enjoy using it. It also doesn't require any download or installation, which is sometimes a blocker to gettingthings done if the company has limits. also, the dataloader.io is easy for other people to pick up, so others can have visibility into the data jobs that have occurred

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
Salesforce
It is an intuitive application to use. Within a few clicks, you can be signed in to your org and ready to perform tasks. Data imports/exports/updates are streamlined so you can quickly start and configure your jobs. These can run in the background while you set up new tasks. Job history and tasks currently running on are on your home screen.

It has been easy to train new employees who don't have previous experience with Matillion. It is quite self-explanatory. There are quite a few things that can be done with Python, however, we have not really looked into this feature much but likely will do in the future. Mostly, it is drag and drop of components and environments can be set up so easy to set up connections as well.

Customer support might be where Dataloader.io saves money. Most of the competitors offer 24/7 live support but Dataloader.io only offers support via email and the community. Those types of support work fine until you need an answer right away. Some questions can't wait until the next business day or business hours for a reply.

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.

I have used salesforce inspector also for operations like import and export of data from custom objects but it doesn't work well when you have data in huge numbers. Instead of using Salesforce Inspector, one should go for Dataloader.io if the number of records is huge to be dealt with.

Matillion ran circles around Stitch and Striim both in functionality, setup, and performance. There was no real comparison. Fivetran massively outperforms Matillion in pretty much every facet of the production from setup, maintenance, visibility, and usability. It already has the ability to connect any data source to a destination regardless of database type. Why we chose Matillion over Fivetran is that, for our current needs, Matillion provides us with the functionality that we need and a much more competitive price for a smaller company.

I have been able to connect Matillion to AWS Aurora Databases, MySQL databases, Rest APIs, Files in AWS S3, etc. Being able to load all of that disparate data into one datalake has made data mining and reporting a lot simpler. I wish everything could be implemented as easily as Matillion.

Return on Investment
Salesforce
  • HUGE time saving. When we need to clean or review data, we used to have to do it line by line. This can do the work within excel and make cleanup/management an afternoons work as opposed to a week.
  • Rollback what you did/change/deleted is relatively simple if you remember to back up the data you are manipulating.

  • Saving us time reduces our need for headcount
  • Allows us to collaborate on data-eng pipelines in a transparent way with non-technical stakeholders, ensuring accuracy and continuity
  • Allows us a single platform to log and manage all of our pipelines to pin-point where something failed and why
  • Always has a solution to very common data engineering tasks, i.e., real-time data, connectors, pre-built workflows, etc.
