We recommend Skyvia to our clients who need a simple, straightforward method to transfer data between databases reliably, securely, and affordably. This is not an ETL tool of yore that requires specialized knowledge in whatever langauge the tool prefers. That simplifies the experience dramatically for organizations who have outsourced or less experienced technical staff. I have not tried Skyvia in a large and highly complex in-house scenario where having the transformations occur more heavily in the tool rather than in the source or destination data solution is desirable. I have not seen any speed or performance issues that would give me pause, even at relatively high volume, even when compared to other similar tools. However I am not yet persuaded that its transformation tools are as robust as in other solutions

We leverage Talend transformation capabilities for stitching the data , unions and join We successfully created the final unified set that can be used by business Read full review Cons We wish the synchronization process could be a little bit faster - sometimes it takes quite a long time. Support team notified us that it is caused by API limitation, but nonetheless. Read full review Pricing for sure can be the area for improvement. Real time processing is slow as compared to other tools like Abinitio. While developing batches, it crashes a lot. It may be the issue with me, but I wanted to highlight it.

We use Talend Data Integration day in and day out. It is the best and easiest tool to jump on to and use. We can build a basic integration super-fast. We could build basic integrations as fast as within the hour. It is also easy to build transformations and use Java to perform some operations.

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

Skyvia is more cost effective and easy to set up for simple data transfers. It is also substantially faster and easier to set up on high volume data sets requiring incremental syncs. Because our use cases focus on supporting a range of clients who do not have the in-house expertise or an existing tool to do this work, we have found Skyvia easier to implement, train on, and maintain than a more extensive and robust tool like

In comparison with the other ETLs I used, Talend is more flexible than Data Services (where you cannot create complex commands). It is similar to Datastage speaking about commands and interfaces. It is more user-friendly than ODI, which has a metadata point of view on its own, while Talend is more classic. It has both on-prem and cloud approaches, while
is only cloud-based.
