Informatica Integration Cloud

Informatica Cloud is a great tool for use when data must be formatted consistently. Once configured, it is very robust and reliable. It is also well-suited for an organization without a robust IT staff to maintain a full server infrastructure. It offers a cost-effective approach to high-quality data integration for even the largest organizations. Organizations without staff experienced in data analytics may find it challenging to take advantage of the more complex results of this tool.

SnapLogic is well suited for data integration across varied sources by non developers or semi developers when access to certain data is more important than the whole system itself. Using it for creating data warehouses is a bit challenging and time consuming proposition using this tool.

Pros

Informatica Integration Cloud

  • Once the secure connection is established it’s quite easy to operate and create new jobs. The controls are simple, and we appreciate the fact there are not a lot of complex fine-tunings required. Navigation is also easy, and we enjoy the ability to open multiple tabs in the browser to work on multiple projects.
  • The monitoring functionality works well to help track the progress of the jobs, again, without too much complication. In a fast dev environment, speed is essential and we quickly seeing the status/progress of jobs as well as any errors if the jobs fail helps us maintain speed.
  • The web interface is a lot easier to interact with than the client/on-prem version. Putting much of the heavy lifting of interacting with the tool onto the shoulders of the browser makes it easier to keep multiple sessions open and get in/out quickly without having to VPN into the office.

  • Their customer service response time is brilliant.
  • SFTP tasks do a great job in reading the file directly from the server, instead of having to download it and then read it.
  • Tasks expose the ability to run them using external job schedulers.
  • Once you have a server up, setting up SnapLogic service does not take long. They have good documentation and customer support too.

Cons

Informatica Integration Cloud

  • Incremental jobs can run very slowly on large table updates. Incremental jobs do not work at all for Salesforce.com history tables.
  • No real ability to report on what jobs you have set up or the performance of those jobs (failures, number of records copied, etc.).
  • It is only available within the user interface and you basically have to copy paste it from the browser if you want the information.

SnapLogic

  • The installation process is vague, and our customers have issues with using Java for security reasons. If they had an install package that could fix that it would be less of an issue.
  • They could make it more convenient to use on the web browser, if I was working on a customer in the Manager I don't want to have to navigate to keep going back to that.

I've never had trouble getting into contact with Informatica's support for technical help. I give it a nine because it does pretty well for mid to enterprise-scale workflows.

I give it a 9 because we have never had to use them. The product is so intuitive and there are plenty of online resources. I'm sure if we reached out to the support would be great, but we've never used it.

Alternatives Considered

Informatica Integration Cloud

We were originally given Informatica Cloud as a bundled piece of software with the Salesforce implementation company we signed up for so we didn't do a lot of detailed searching for competitors. Since then we have seen it go against Mulesoft Anypoint and Zapier. Both were good, but Informatica Cloud just worked so much better for everything we are using and was cheaper.

SnapLogic

Earlier we used to work on this tool, but since SnapLogic came in the picture it gave us a lot of confidence to work faster, easier and in a more convenient way. So I would recommend using SnapLogic because of its simple functionality for smaller organizations. It is fast at loading millions of records in a few mins.

Return on Investment

Informatica Integration Cloud

  • One positive ROI is that Informatica Cloud ensures that data is being imported in the same format each and every time so a user can be confident of data integrity.
  • Secondly, being able to match of certain fields prevents record duplication.

SnapLogic

  • SnapLogic cannot solve business problems and you still need a technical person to solve the complex integration issues.
  • Our business bought SnapLogic thinking this could replace our current ETL tools such as Informatica. But SnapLogic falls short in a lot of features when compared to Informatica. Later our business decided not to replace Informatica.
  • SnapLogic promised to solve big data integration problems, but we did not find a suitable solution that can solve our problems of data integration using SnapLogic (for instance, it could not parse parquet nested file).
