Below are my comment based on 2+ year of experience in Informatica Cloud
PROS:
1. Scalable Data Pipeline
2. Easy to use Heterogeneous Databases (Multiple type of sources in Single Mapping)
3. Multiple options to configure your mapping (I have created SCD type 1,2 and 3 on multiple projects)
4. Easy to debug your mapping, debug mode simulation is there in the product.

CONS:
1. Less Documentation of any new feature (Which I faced during my initial usage)
2. No Demo video for new data source (More use documentation need to be provided)
3. In Case of new API integration faces multiple issues every time only hit and trial works.

First, the wizard is easy to use making the learning curve for simple ETL tasks nice. Second, since Informatica is mature there are a good variety of connectors available. Finally, we have driven some fairly complex ETL solutions using only the cloud.

The major reason in selecting Informatica Cloud Data Integration over the others was because of
1) Non-Complex Integrations
2) Cost factors for Licensing
3) Cost & Time Factors in Implementation
4) Data Volume involved in Integration
5) Error Handling

Having used SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) in the past, Informatica Cloud was a huge-step up in functionality, usability and performance. Hands-down, Informatica Cloud is a much more robust product overall. While SSIS is well-suited for specific instances (i.e. SQL Server-specific implementations), Informatica Cloud is a much better product as an overall integration/transformation tool.

  • Mule ESB, Informatica Enterprise Data Integration, Informatica Data Explorer, Alteryx Connect, Talend Cloud Integration, Actian DataConnect, Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service and PowerCenter
Informatica is a proven name in this space, and while Cloud does not have all the exotic features that Powercenter has, it is fast and light, working well for a very agile team that cannot always wait for the dedicated Informatica developer to fully build out an integration. This is a tool that speeds development by letting the BI Team do their own I&A and requirements definition in a fast and agile format, then pass along to the trained developer to button up the integration after it has already proved it's value in use.

We were originally given Informatica Cloud as a bundled piece of software with the Salesforce implementation company we signed up for so we didn't do a lot of detailed searching for competitors. Since then we have seen it go against Mulesoft Anypoint and Zapier. Both were good, but Informatica Cloud just worked so much better for everything we are using and was cheaper.

Informatica Cloud (IC) and Dataloader are similar products, and we actually use both. IC is a much better tool for automating and standardizing data imports, but Dataloader is much better suited for ad-hoc data imports.
