The choice to use Actian DataConnect really comes down to pricing and the type of integration project you are performing, specifically with the requirements, whether you want the integration to be on-premise or in the cloud, can you install agents on your servers etc. For integration tools it runs head to head with its competitors.

Red Hat
Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Data Services is a top choice for JEE applications. Even though lots of documentation is available, it's difficult in terms of usability. If the development is more based on Java applications it is a good choice. It provides better installation and integrations.

Pros
HCL Technologies
  • Map multiple source and destination tables - what would be done in many steps in SSIS can be done in one or two "maps" in Data Integrator.
  • Platform independent, cloud based, no client software.
  • Conversion of data types, write flat files - this helps us with integrating systems.
  • Fairly straightforward to use if the user has ETL experience.

Red Hat
  • Data source compatibility: since it is Java, it can connect to anything with a JDBC driver.
  • Flexibility: you can configure it however you want, we have it configured to use LDAPS for authentication and have all interfaces encrypted, and setting that up was pretty straight forward.

Cons
HCL Technologies
  • Integration Manager needs better scheduling improvements. Like dependencies, and not running a process again if the prior run is still running.
  • New connector development does not seem a priority.

Data Integrator was initially a part of a package deal for us with our new Student Information System. It was chosen prior to my arrival at the institution. Since I discovered we have SQL Server licenses, we have decided to use SSIS instead since I have a background in the MSBI stack and SSIS appears to be more straightforward (process flow philosophy vs "map" philosophy.)

Red Hat
Market value and support extended by Redhat is the winner against Veritas. It has cool features and functionality but still, if your organization is Redhat shop it's better to go for the Jboss option.
