Dell Boomi

Dell Boomi is well suited for integrating between ERP systems, especially Netsuite, SAP, Salesforce. Built in access to platform API, Auth to API, access to data or triggers/actions, etc. speeds delivery. There are many connectors available making this process faster. It is best suited to an organization that needs to rapidly roll out new integrations or changes on a regular basis. It's less well suited when larges amounts of data need to be processed very quickly in a parallel method. It's possible to handle things in parallel, but because of the workflow connectors and design process you are much more likely to build something that is handling one record at a time sequentially instead of building a process that is processing hundreds of records simultaneously for real time processing. It's also less well suited where complex code is the common path for integration as it does not connect to source control and common software development processes for managing code/test/deploy. (Those things can be used, but it requires additional effort to manage.)

Matillion

Matillion is a one stop ETL shop. It is extremely flexible, and has been able to manage anything we've asked it to do so far. We love it for any API calls that we want to make. It is also very useful for transforming data that is already in our warehouse.Matillion might not be appropriate for a very small startup that is relying on free software. Airflow is a better choice in that scenario. For large datasets being pulled from third parties that have complex schemas, Matillion can be a lot of work. It is possible, but there are other tools that specialize in that. Fivetran is a tool we use in tandem with Matillion to great effect.

Pros

Dell Boomi

  • Pre-built connectors to almost anything which greatly reduce time to release of your integration needs.
  • Easy to use development platform with drag&drop features. Non-technical people could build simple integration processes in no time.
  • Great user community where you can get quick help if needed. Boomi people hang around there a lot.

Matillion

  • Integrates very well with most, if not, all AWS services - Easy to get data from anywhere inside your AWS account into Redshift or Snowflake databases.
  • It has many available integrations and datasource connectivity outside of AWS and other cloud service providers - Makes it easy to get data from many sources and systems in more traditional on or off premise technologies as well as vendor-specific data and application interfaces.
  • Very intuitive, easy-to-learn-and-use interface with a large collection online tutorial articles and videos - makes for an extremely easy onboarding of users who may or may not have past experience with other similar tools.

Cons

Dell Boomi

  • The dashboards are limited
  • Running Low latency improves performance but makes resolving issues very difficult
  • Unable to sign up for alerts for one process only. Alerts go out at an account level. If you want to get notifications for a process you need to build it into your application.
  • The folder structure of components can get messy if not well governed.
  • Easy to create duplicate components and not realizing that someone else in your company already created one.
  • Scripting could be improved. You don't know if you have errors in your code until you run the process.
Adam White | TrustRadius Reviewer

Matillion

  • With the added functionality available in Matillion, the understanding to use complex features becomes challenging for a new development team.
  • Updates are regularly provided by Matillion support team but then they fail to specify the release document, new features or updates carried out in each update.
  • Validation failure in scheduled jobs is sometimes encountered without any reason or proper RCA.
  • Complex user management flow.

Dell Boomi has provided us with the ability to connect our campus together using our various existing platforms. There are many supported features and have yet to run into something that we cannot do. Its user interface is very intuitive which would allow users to begin developing fairly easily. There is a myriad of resources available

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.

My IT and Finance teams have noted that setting up the tool is a breeze. Dell Boomi has never caused an issue during a system implementation that I am aware of. We are pleased with the tool and recommend others consider it.

It is pretty intuitive to put together a job. Once you get into larger organization features like creating environments, projects, and mapping the two together, it gets pretty hairy. The other place where it's not really intuitive is to get an overall picture of health in your ETL jobs, find where failures are happening, and really trace those down. For failures, I often drop down to interface with the database directly to get useful information. Matillion has these capabilities, but I find the processes often hang when trying to access them.

The atom sphere takes a time to load, when I open a process or when I open a log. One more slow processing is when I import objects from NetSuite.
About the performance of processing, it looks like Boomi takes a time to initialize some things such as connectors before starting the process. This is also performance we have.

Boomi support was responsive and knowledgable, however being a closed cloud service, it doesn't have good community support. We found the learning curve to be steep and there aren't avenues like google, forums, or blogs that provide community driven insight into the product or how to go about designing solutions using the tool

The support team was always very helpful most of the time, only have faced few issues because of time-zone difference when solutions are required immediately and I couldn't reach to anyone. In most of the cases, the support is exceptional

Alternatives Considered

Dell Boomi

Our team has used Actian DataConnect since the Mid 1990's. It was formerly known as Data Junction and then Pervasive Data Integrator. We looked at Boomi as an additional tool to aid in our Integrations. We did compare it to Informatica and thought it was a better fit for our customers.

We have been using Boomi and doing great. I like the way we can break down data into small units of work. It simplifies how to handle multi-conditional pathing and the unit of work level.

Currently, I am working at SFCG, using various tools to build integrations into Oracle CX products. When we started kicking the tires on Boomi and in the training and development since that time, I've tried a series of processes out that have given me trouble in other tools. Below is a brief recap of my experience and growing admiration for the way in which this tool has made my job easier.

My first goal with using Boomi was to connect to an instance of CRM On-Demand (a task that can on other platforms be a time-consuming endeavor). What I found was a useful wizard, pictured below, with a series of pop-up steps to follow.
In other tools, I have spent more time in trying to define the schemas, than actually completing the maps that use them. Boomi reduced that time from my process. This is one small example of many demonstrating how my teammates and I feel as if we were working in black and white and are now working in color with Boomi AtomSphere. Tasks I've taken for granted are complex, time-consuming and meticulous are simplified, streamlined and transformed with powerful features like Boomi Suggest - a handy feature that leverages the collective intelligence of the Boomi community to suggest which fields should be mapped in a Data Map.

You don't need to take my word for it, another member of our team, Li Mo started building out an integration to Oracle Sales Cloud, using the SOAP API Connector. He was able to do a complete integration to insert a record into the Account entity, and it took about an hour and a half.

Note: it had been about 1 month since we both actually took the training courses. I believe we choose an additional tool that plays to the inner strengths of working in the cloud, and I can not wait until I start full blown to continue development on new integration projects using Dell Boomi AtomSphere.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it to see if it fits your needs.

Matillion is the best alternative for on-premise ETL tools if you are looking for a cloud-only solution. None of the tools we evaluated provide same features offered by Matillion. Extensive technical documentation is available on the website which makes development easy and fast. Excellent technical support is willing to assist 24/7 and provide meaningful resolution.

We don't have a particularly large volume of data (less than 200GB), but as we've added more and more data, we are able to fully reprocess our data in about 2.5 hours (vs. over 6 hours it used to take to incrementally process our data in our old ETL system). We're not even using the Enterprise version of the product; if we did, we would get even greater scale.

Return on Investment

Dell Boomi

  • It has allowed us to scale significantly without having to add headcount, specifically those geared towards data entry. We went from a $10m ARR business to $200m ARR business with the same amount of Order Processors and 12x amount of transactions by leveraging Boomi to perform a lot of the work, and then having the Order Processing team to simply review that the transaction was processed successfully.
Jake J. Darley | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
