The biggest difference is with Astera Centerprise I could just start using it. Almost every other tool required me to write SQL or in another language... and if I'm writing SQL already, why not just use SSIS or raw SQL? There wasn't a tremendous amount of time savings being seen with the other products in getting the work done and that was the primary reason to go with Astera Centerprise. I watched someone use it in a demo for 30 minutes and thought, "Ok, let me have it, I can use this right now."

For us Astera Centerprise is a better tool as it helps in solving 2 problems. We use it as both an ETL tool as well as API integration tool. MuleSoft Anypoint Platform is used for API integration only. So we chose Astera Centerprise over MuleSoft.

From honing the web I made a long-list of about 25 products, leaving off the big (and expensive) 4 as well as clearly inferior products. Then, due to the nature of our organization, I excluded cloud-specific solutions. That got us to about 15. I read reviews and was persuaded to reduce the shortlist to eight, which somewhat unfairly I arbitrarily cut to six because eight was just too much to deep-dive. I took a deep dive including vendor product demo with all six. From that study, two emerged, and I recommended both to my management as excellent choices. My management preferred Centerprise because it is not Java-based, and we are not a Java organization.

Stacks up well against competitors and overall provided the best fit for our needs while also meetings all of our requirements. No tool was perfect in our evaluation or from past experience even, but Astera proved to be a great fit after going through various reviews, demos, proof of concepts, and so on.

We first tried Informatica and think it is suitable for our company. However, the per license price is way too expensive, as we need to support multiple users at the same time. When compared to Astera, we found Astera can do most of the stuff that Informatica does. That's why we picked Astera.

  • TIBCO Cloud Integration (including BusinessWorks and Scribe) and Azure Logic Apps
Astera wins on simplicity of building and maintaining the data flows. I am afraid that the two above-mentioned tools (and especially LogicApps) actually have more power under the hood. However, as mentioned before - Astera is way simpler to understand and maintain. Astera can be easily mastered by anyone.

We looked at continuing to use SSIS as an alternative. Although we own SSIS as part of our SQL licensing, we found that it takes a much higher skill level to create solutions. It also does not have the ability to parse unstructured data the way that Centerprise Data Integrator can. We also looked at Datawatch Monarch as a possibility but found it over-all to be cost-prohibitive. We also looked at a cheaper alternative called SimX but did not have a strong confidence in the product as we evaluated it. We landed on Centerprise Data Integrator as it met all of our business requirements and we know we could leverage it for many uses across our enterprise.

I looked at a few other options. But honestly, do not remember their names. They were excluded quickly when they came up short on functionality.
Before this tool, we used VBscript, VB.net and Excel to parse reports. These methods were much more time consuming.

After the purchase of the new company, we were required to go with their software choices until after TSA. The ETL product they had in use was Informatica. I'm sure Informatica has some great benefits for huge companies, but I am having a hard time adjusting to their style. Centerprise has Dataflows (Informatica has Mappings). You can run a Dataflow all by itself (Informatica you cannot run a Mapping by itself therefore requiring a workflow to run which doubles up your objects and maintenance). With Centerprise you can preview your data in every object in the Dataflow saving development time (with Informatica you cannot). Centerprise has a very nice scheduler to use (An Informatica consultant suggested not using the scheduler in Informatica because it wasn't very good thus, requiring a 3rd party purchase | we are using JAMS). Centerprise is a stand-alone product (Informatica had to be put on an Unix Box--thus requiring unix knowledge). Centerprise can pass variables quick easily between Flows (Informatica has to read parameter files from a stored/LAN location). Both products have the exact same project set up for the Government file transmissions: Centerprise had a total of 112 objects (DataFlows and Workflows). Informatica has 651. The once nice thing about Informatica is that you can call unix jobs to run (not sure if this was available in Centerprise)

We looked at some similar data integration tools, but reading the fine print of one revealed its need to scan our network - which automatically removed itself from our consideration. We will never compromise our customer's data for any reason, especially that of a suspect third-party software provider. The others lost out to Centerprise because their combination of value and ability vs cost didn't make sense.

By magnitudes...the time to implement a map. I was up an running in under an hour. The interface is extremely well designed and simple to use. Logging is very robust. Transformations and functions are much easier to use than other vendors I have tried.

Some of the other packages' price was too high for the budget provided for our team which eliminated those. Others had a requirement that they needed to be connected into our network. Because we have so much sensitive information in our network we could not allow them this access and that eliminated them. We had several other trial periods with other packages and they did not have the flexibility of data format input or output. We have used SQL, reports, csv, Excel, COBOL, database, and fixed length sources in conversion in less than 1.5 years. We continue to see ways that Centerprise could have been used and are developing them. The standardization of comparison data out of different reports that have different formats was something we did not think about when we selected this package.

I have been a user of Informatica Power Center for 14 years, and I've always considered it the best ETL product available.

Centerprise is relatively new, and although it can't be compared to Informatica yet, I dare to say it offers a few things that even Informatica does not, like the SCD transformation, and overall, the ease of use.

I also evaluated open source tools such as Talend and Pentaho, but I realized you must have knowledge of JavaScript to even write some basic logic. While that is not an issue by itself, it makes it overwhelming compared to Centerprise's ease of use. The price was also very reasonable because the open source tools can get pricey once you want additional functionality or licenses.

We looked at Adeptia, Informatica, Jitterbit, and Adaptive. All of these products had their specific strengths. We compared many factors which included but was not limited to price, product capability, product maturity and stability, what comes in the box for the purchase price, the ability to connect across a wide data landscape, ease of use, and product support. We chose Centerprise because of what was delivered for the purchase price. Other products required additional module purchases while others did not provide the data integration level we where seeking.
