Datameer

Datameer is a great tool if someone is capable of keeping the most recent version of the tool up to date along with the most recent version of the distribution of Hadoop. The tool is easy to support but it must have someone who can run the back end processes

Informatica PowerCenter

Informatica Powercenter is the centerpiece of our overall enterprise data warehouse strategy. It's a critical enablement to ensure we can feed in multiple data stream and transform them into digestible data within our data warehouse. With its flexible capabilities and API availability, we were able to feed in industry standard data format as well as home grown data structure. Overall, we are very pleased with their capability and contribution to our data warehouse strategy.

Pros

Datameer

  • It leverages scalability, flexibility and cost-effectiveness of hadoop to deliver an end-user focused analytic platform for big data without involvement of IT.
  • It overcomes Hadoop`s complexity by providing GUI interface with pre-built functions across integration, analytics and data visualization .
  • Excel feature is awesome for business users which is already provided by Datameer.
  • Using datameer now user can do smart analytic using Decision Trees, Column dependency and recommendation.
  • Recently HTML5 inclusion is making application to available on a wider range of devices, including the iPad and other mobile devices which does not support Flash.
  • It can be used in premise or in a cloud computing environment.
  • Wizard-based data integration designed for IT and business users to schedule and do transformation of large sets of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data without any knowledge of Hadoop ecosystem.

Informatica PowerCenter

  • Informatica has a wide range of support for databases. Pretty much every mainstream DBMS is compatible here.
  • Designing ETL mappings and workflows is a very intuitive process, and takes minimal learning time and effort even for a beginner.
  • Informatica's biggest strength is its sheer performance. It is unmatched in terms of handling large volumes of data.

Cons

Datameer

  • Many tabs sometimes reduce your focus
  • Might be better to have a more compact design
  • Video tutorials are a little long
Abhinav Patel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Informatica PowerCenter

  • There are too many ways to perform the same or similar functions which in turn makes it challenging to trace what a workflow is doing and at which point (ex. sessions can be designed as static or re-usable and the override can occur at the session or workflow, or both which can be counter productive and confusing when troubleshooting).
  • The power in structured design is a double edged sword. Simple tasks for a POC can become cumbersome. Ex. if you want to move some data to test a process, you first have to create your sources by importing them which means an ODBC connection or similar will need to be configured, you in turn have to develop your targets and all of the essential building blocks before being able to begin actual development. While I am on sources and targets, I think of a table definition as just that and find it counter intuitive to have to design a table as both a source and target and manage them as different objects. It would be more intuitive to have a table definition and its source/target properties defined by where you drag and drop it in the mapping.
  • There are no checkpoints or data viewer type functions without designing an entire mapping and workflow. If you would like to simply run a job up to a point and check the throughput, an entire mapping needs to be completed and you would workaround this by creating a flat file target.

Employees with intermediate SQL and Hive knowledge can generate reports faster than using Datameer . It does have visualization tool but I don't think it is anything that cannot be accomplished by importing the data in Excel

Positives;- Multi User Development Environment- Speed of transformation- Seamless integration between other Informatica products.Negatives;- There should be less windows to maintain developers' focus while using. You probably need 2 big monitors when you start development with Informatica Power Center.- Oracle Analytical functions should be natively used.- E-LT support as well as ETL support.

PowerCenter is robust and fast, and it does a great job meeting all the needs, not just the most commercially vocal needs. In the hands of an expert power user, you can accomplish almost anything with your data. It is not for new users or intermittent users-- for that the Cloud version is a better fit. Be prepared for costly connectors (priced differently for each source or destination you are working with), and just be planful of your projects so you are not paying for connectors you no longer need or want

Informatica power center is a leader of the pack of ETL tools and has some great abilities that make it stand out from other ETL tools. It has been a great partner to its clients over a long time so it's definitely dependable. With all the great things about Informatica, it has a bit of tech burden that should be addressed to make it more nimble, reduce the learning curve for new developers, provide better connectivity with visualization tools.

Alternatives Considered

Datameer

Not sure how to compare Datameer with other products, it has a flavor of Excel and PowerPivot, it leverages D3.js and HTML5 for visualizations. The modeling capabilities are one of its strongest aspects. We've been looking at Tableau, Qlikview, Microstrategy, Cognos Insight, and SAP Lumira.

Informatica PowerCenter

PowerCenter is the industry leader when it comes to interfacing with multiple source and target systems. The graphical interface increases employee productivity while reducing human resource expenditures and training requirements. These other tools offer some similar capabilities, but lack the range and depth when compared with the PowerCenter platform.
Brian Randolph | TrustRadius Reviewer

Return on Investment

Datameer

  • Datameer definitely helped to increase employee efficiency, provide quick results for our data analytic teams.
  • Quick data injection and data partitions allowed quick data scans.
  • Integration with the Java sdk allowed us to reuse existing Java code.
Serge Blazhievsky | TrustRadius Reviewer

Informatica PowerCenter

  • The data pipeline automation capability of Informatica means that few resources are needed to pre-process the data that ultimately resides in a Data Warehouse. Once a workflow is implemented, manual intervention is not needed.
  • PowerCenter did require more resources and time for installation and configuration than was expected/planned for.
  • The lack of or minimal support of unstructured data means that newer sources of dynamic/changing data cannot be easily processed/transformed through PowerCenter workflows.
