Matillion

Matillion is great for handling bulk and 'delta' loads to your warehouse, i.e. updating the warehouse with only those records updated since the last execution of the pipeline. The components and Python scripting provide a huge amount of flexibility in what the pipeline does, but you do need to have the expertise to know how to implement it properly.Matillion has been less good at extracting data from APIs. The functionality was found to be complex and it was unclear how to manage things like pagination and rate limiting in API calls.

Oracle GoldenGate

It is particularly useful in situations where ACTIVE DATA GUARD cannot handle the desired outcome. It can be used to support cross-platform migrations not supported by Active Data Guard which is a far cheaper solution to DR. It is suited for migrations that require zero downtime as there is bi-directional capability built into the product. It is also useful when the source and target are of different databases such as Oracle to SQL Server as the target. It is overkill if all you require is a physical standby that is open read-only.

  • The workspace is drag and drop, which makes it intuitive and easy to use.
  • Server creation and management is robust. We haven't had to worry too much about it once we got it created.
  • The job scheduler is very simple and intuitive.
  • Matillion allows you to run Python, which grants almost unlimited flexibility, even without using any other components.

Cons

Matillion

  • Limited selection of instance sizes - Larger organizations and groups my need to set up multilple instances depending on estimations on concurrent users.
  • Lack of complete github, gitlab, or other source control integration - it has internal versioning but it is limited. Manual job exports currently don't lend well for useful DIFFs comparison when using those technologies.
  • Needs more options for authentication and security - User creation is very manual and can be tedious and difficult to manage for larger installations.

Oracle GoldenGate

  • Setting Up Oracle GoldenGate as HA in an Oracle RAC environment. While this is possible to do and there is documentation out there, I've found that specific Oracle GoldenGate and Oracle RAC experience is needed in order to make this happen. That level of experience does not exist everywhere.
  • Monitoring Oracle GoldenGate. Currently there are two main options for monitoring Oracle GoldenGate, the first, GoldenGate Monitor, does not scale well as it becomes very non-performant when you have more than 10-15 GoldenGate Managers reporting to it, the second, Oracle Enterprise Manager, while getting better still requires a lot of manual configuration to have Oracle GoldenGate talk to the OEM agent. While this has got a lot better with 12c GoldenGate, I still feel that there is room to improve here.
  • Unable to replicate certain Data Types. Again, less of an issue in 12c Oracle GoldenGate, but there are still some Data Types that Oracle GoldenGate is unable to replicate.

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.

Usability

Pretty good UI, especially for a completely web-based system. Source control integration is a bit clunky at times, but overall makes code versioning and branching much more simple, since it's largely within the same context as the rest of the code. Finding some core settings can be difficult - they're just not where one would expect them to be.

Once set up, it's very easy to use and keep running, it's getting to that point that can make it cumbersome to some. Also, depending on the data that you want to replicate, the configuration files can become quite cumbersome to maintain. Learning curve can be high for some who are not as experienced with databases and transactions.

For most of users support can provide needed help. And it is always in a really short time frame.In some really advanced cases there was necessary to include highly tech people and there was a lot of back and forth. Because I have a case that is not resolved for more than a year and the bug is based on initial bad implementation (Google AdManager component) I would suggest that sometimes don't rush to publish something that is not ready.

Oracle Support for Oracle GoldenGate has been quite responsive and quite helpful in the few situations where we've needed it. Furthermore, the documentation on Oracle GoldenGate is so good that we often do not need to contact support with issues as the fix is already documented and able to be run by us without needing to open a ticket.

We've had Oracle consultants come as well for training days to talk about new features, parts of Oracle GoldenGate we may not be using and things of that nature. The consultants they send are great as they're very knowledgeable about all things Oracle GoldenGate and great resources for any questions or concerns you may have with the product.

We used Oracle University for our Oracle Golden Gate Training and it was top notch. We were able to turn our whole DBA team to Oracle GoldenGate newbies to Oracle GoldenGate troubleshooting experts in a matter of a few days, while this obviously did not come cheap, the company felt that it was worth the investment.

If Oracle GoldenGate is new to your organization, expose as many DBAs as possible to it. Having your whole team fluent in it will overcome early operational hurdles and allow it to more quickly become an accepted and supported part of your supported platform for your team that will enable the business to use it to its fullest.

Alternatives Considered

Matillion

There's a number of systems not available to enter in here that we also took a look at: AWS Data pipeline, Airflow, Xplenty, etc. The reason we chose Matillion is for the balance of features (ability to connect into cloud data sources like Jira), a simple interface to put together Data pipelines (that required little to no coding), and a reasonable price point. Matillion is pretty unique in that it hits a balance of all three of those requirements.

It wasn't easy to set up replication to a message queue using SharePlex. We had challenges using the product when the application was doing a lot of "rollbacks to savepoint". SharePlex always showed a lag.When I was testing SharePlex, there was no way to offload the workload from the DB server while using it.

Instance size can be upgraded or downgraded with few clicks and hourly billing rate will change immediately. No need to restart Matillion instance. Matillion Enterprise edition has several benefits and will be activated automatically by configuring ">=m4." large instance size

Have never had any issues with scaling Oracle GoldenGate itself, however Oracle GoldenGate Monitor does have scaling issues, but with Oracle GoldenGate now able to be monitored by Oracle Enterprise Manager, this is no longer an issue, in my opinion.

Return on Investment

Matillion

  • Matillion has dramatically decreased the time it takes to create new ETL
  • Matillion has reduced the amount of time it takes to execute our daily ETL processing (by 50% or more)
  • Matillion has increased the number of people who can develop ETL by making ETL development easier
  • Matillion has increased the variety of data sources we can bring into our data warehouse
  • Matillion has made it a little harder to manage source control and deployment
Matthew Burr | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle GoldenGate

  • As Oracle GoldenGate integrated well with the Oracle products we were already using, we didn't need to spend additional time and money to purchase or develop an integration solution.
  • XStream and Active Data Guard licenses come free with Oracle GoldenGate, reducing overhead costs.
  • Eliminated the need to scale our workstations up in terms of hardware resources. Creating read-replicas to offload read requests gave more opportunities to scale horizontally.
