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.

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

It is suited for taking data from multiple sources simultaneously like for example the streaming data of transactions in retail stores. It processes the data at a pretty high pace and gives high results every time.It is less appropriate sometimes because it hangs sometimes and does not have a large user community available over the internet.

Pros

Matillion

  • 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.

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

  • Integrability with different data sources. The provision of native connectors is complete and there is the possibility of implementing new ones.
  • Flexibility in power sources, thanks to the connectors with the main DB and the integration of all types of formats (XML, CSV, JSON, etc.)
  • End-to-end process with the SAS suite. Products such as SAS Visual Analytics allows the visualization of the data produced, or Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning which allows you to perform advanced analysis.

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.
Patrick Hildreth | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

  • Licenses are very costly
  • Its not easy to move SAS users to other open source products because of the easy programming in SAS.

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.

The main negative point is the use of a non-standard language for customizations, as well as the poor integration with non-SAS systems. However, there is no doubt that it is a high-performance and powerful product capable of responding optimally to certain requirements.

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.

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.
Kris Shinn | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

Because of ease of using SAS DI and data processing speed. There were lots of issues with AWS Redshift on cloud environment in terms of making connections with the data sources and while fetching the data we need to write complex queries.

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

  • 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

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

  • Implementation time to be expected due to the expertise on SAS tools and its language.
  • Complete and very powerful tool, especially combined with other SAS products.
  • Modern product always in step with the times and needs, certainly not cheap.
