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.

Striim
Below samples are the well suited use cases; - Change data capture feature seamlessly works on popular RDMS. You can make enrichments on several data sources within the same Striim application. - You can install stand alone agents and start streaming log files to Striim servers. This is mainly useful for security operations or audit trail use cases.

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.

Striim
  • GoldenGate Trail reader which iss faster than Oracle CDC. It does not used logminer, hence there is no load on source Oracle database.
  • Easy installation and upgrade in 5 minutes
  • Support is very good. Fast and user friendly.

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.)

Faster, checkpointing better. CDC works well. The loading is faster. Easy upgrade and installation. Uses less resource.
