IT Glue

IT Glue out of the box has all the basic tools to document a client environment and the customizable flexible assets mean your documentation and relationship mapping options are limitless. However, getting ITG set up in your organization requires a significant amount of time and effort and a culture shift to be sure that the data remains current. Everyone needs 100% buy-in for it to work, otherwise, they will stop trusting the data and stop using the product.

Talend Data Integration

It is very useful for disparate data sources like Excel, Microsoft Access, SQL server or any relational database. Also, cases where you need data transformation, a lot of pre-processing, Talend is very good. Its tMap is very useful. It also has various transformers, and we can add custom logic for various data fields.

Talend Data Integration

  • JSON parsing, if you are into highly nested JSON object parsing Talend has the ability to display the structure of JSON and allows you to define the extraction logic in the metadata. Same with XML source.
  • Customization, For mostly all ETL work you will have a component in Talend. And in case you have a very specific requirement you can end up easily designing a custom component that you can code and reuse and share with others.
  • Talend has a connectivity option to almost all the databases (relational or NOSQ)L and sources available. It also has generic JDBC/ ODBC drivers in case you need it.
  • I like the ease of deployment across environment (DEV and PROD) with the use of context variables.

Cons

IT Glue

  • Up time: There have been a couple of times in the last month or so, that we couldn't get to our information. I will say the outages are usually brief and followed up with a detailed explanation as to why it happened.
  • Integration Improvements: Though the integrate with alot of our software, some need to be improved, and made two-way.
  • Mobile App: Their mobile app is amazing, however some data is still not available on it.

  • Installation process of Integration Suite platform.
  • JAVA memory management. It's easy to get a memory overhead error, and you have to modify configuration files to increase memory manually.
  • Migration process.

Its interface is super simple, and easy to learn. Their search functionality it very nice, and allows us to access data with very few "clicks" of the mouse.

Other than a few access outages, ITGlue is always up and available to us. Their ability to export Playbook, that contain our customers data, and securely send those over to them is amazing and are produced pretty fast. We have IT Glue linked with several other services and software and we have not found that it slows anything down.

Good support, specially when it relates to PROD environment. The support team has access to the product development team. Things are internally escalated to development team if there is a bug encountered. This helps the customer to get quick fix or patch designed for problem exceptions. I have also seen support showing their willingness to help develop custom connector for a newly available cloud based big data solution

Alternatives Considered

IT Glue

We used Bright Gauge a long time ago. At the time, we didn't have enough process and procedure in place to truly evaluate it, so we're currently going through an evaluation of Bright Gauge again now and we'll decide what works better. I don't think we're losing IT Glue regardless, but the two may work even better together.

Talend Data Integration

There are code building and code conversions internally in most of these ETL tools. The repository is an overhead in the ETL process. There may be a need for a full-time administrator to manage deployments and monitor jobs. With Talend, it seems to be transparent with the pure JAVA/PERL code. You have the ability to easily customize your code. It has support for big data integration. The data quality/ MDM tools can be easily integrated with Talend ETL.The license cost is low compared to other ETL tools. With the new version of talend cloud-based hosted deployment is also available. An overall full featured open source version of Talend studio is available that can be used at zero cost with some amount of scripting to automate tasks.I was able to replace SSIS with a zero cost Talend open studio deployment with shell scripting and CRON scheduling.

Return on Investment

IT Glue

  • It's been positive to know that we have a data base where we can save important items instead of having a document on someones computer and having to ask them everytime for it.
  • It's been more productive to have the passwords in one place and it's more secure.
