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.

The most impressive part about ThoughtSpot is the people. Every ThoughtSpot employee that we have encountered has been incredibly helpful and genuine in their desire to help us make the most of the application. They weren't just there to sell us a product and then leave us to our own devices. They truly want to make sure that we are successful in our implementation and that we are getting the most out of the application. Their implementation process is super clean and they maximized the time with our engineers to ensure that our infrastructure was best suited for the appliance. And while they would prefer to work in the cloud, they understood our desire to be on-prem and knew exactly how to work with hour specific architectural structure. They trained our team so well in how the appliance works that we were able to handle the next implementation with little support from the ThoughtSpot engineers. Yet, they always made themselves available to us when we got stuck on something.

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.
Hyrum Ward | TrustRadius Reviewer

ThoughtSpot

  • ThoughtSpot is very intuitive for the end user. No particular technical skills are required to start using the tool, just you need to know your data in order to search for meaningful statistical results.
  • With ThoughtSpot you are getting real-time data, which is particularly helpful when you need to make timely decisions for resolving data exceptions/issues.
  • ThoughtSpot has really cool features that help you actually get more proficient to use the tool full capacity, i.e. replay feature which shows steps by steps how to construct your question, especially helpful for more complex searches; your data can be transformed into a chart and even presentation slides; the tool is intuitive enough to learn your search pattern and even to present suggestion scenarios related to your historical searches; and so much more!

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

ThoughtSpot

  • ThoughtSpot can do a better job of providing prescriptive analytics.
  • Live connection for other databases is a much needed feature.
  • Pinboard canvas should allow for custom size rather than sticking to 5 pre-defined sizes.
  • More features needed in pinboard level filters.

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.

We have had success with the initial use cases and there are more use cases that can receive return on investment. I don't give it a 10 because other products like Tableau are building functionality that may start to compete in the coming years.

Usability

Matillion

Matillion 7.8
Based on 87 answers
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 UI is very clean, easy to use and navigate. The performance is very good, quick. Performance for us has not been a concern since we deployed the product initially, nor have we had to initiate any performance-related (hardware) upgrades. That is a key contributor to the usability of this product. Our ability to link it with our application seamlessly is also a plus.

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

ThoughtSpot is just as good at creating the initial graphic for the end user, it might even be better because the user really does not need much technical knowledge in order to create a basic graphic. Currently, ThoughtSpot cannot yet compete with the other tools when it comes to designing a fully interactive dashboard or with customization of graphics.

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

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

ThoughtSpot

  • Through Thoughtspot's self-service nature, pushing analytics to the lowest level has an obvious positive impact on our corporate digitization objective.
  • Through automated data updating processes, we can deploy some IT capacity to other areas and still support the demanding Thoughtspot user base.
