Cost and ease of use were better for our purposes. Matillion distinguishes itself from Fivetran and SnapLogic through its user-friendly design, no-code interface, in-depth transformation capabilities, allowing for complex data manipulations directly within the platform, offering greater control and customization over ETL processes. Additionally, Matillion is designed to scale easily, handling large data volumes while ensuring consistent performance at a cost-effective pricing model.

We decided to move forward with Matillion because it was the best tool among tools that support both ingesting data from a source system to a target database and running transformation workflows on it afterwards. Fivetran and Airbyte only support data ingestion and we had our infrastructure on AWS, not Azure.

The Matillion selection was not my decision. But I think it's a good enough choice. It is especially valuable that the team can learn Matillion easily and that the project can be understood by the entire team with the visual environment instead of complex ETLs.

Both the Databricks platform and dbt Cloud are more powerful from the point of view of the development lifecycle and data use cases covered. They are also more complex and require specialized data engineering skills to be used. Matillion has a lower barrier of entry for small data platforms and simpler use cases. Still, it becomes more complex to manage and use when the use cases become many or complex, and the data platform becomes more sophisticated.

Removes most of the complexity around setting up and preparing things.
If you could describe with words what needs to be done to move data from A to B, the implementation in Matillion would probably be the most similar in terms of simplicity of understanding what you are doing and how.

Matillion is a good tool for integrating multiple clouds. Informatica has been a market standard for many years, it provides multiple capabilities for data governance, data quality, etc. However, Informatica is pretty expensive compared to Matillion. Also, Matillion is more user-friendly, and it is easier to collaborate; hence, Matillion is a better choice.

dbt is great for engineers and those comfortable with coding. Matillion is the low-code alternative with a huge emphasis on collaboration with ease. You don't need to checkout a branch, clone, pull, merge etc. in order to help your colleague with a data pipeline. The simple drag'n'drop design allows for easy collaboration and understanding.

Matillion was chosen by Schibsted due to the seamless integration with Snowflake. The ease of use and fast workflow have made it an essential tool in our setup, and with the option to integrate nearly every data source there is, plus the ease of use, it really gives a lot of bang for the buck.

Matillion is much easier to set up and easier to work for the team. Offers a lot more connections which are easier to set up. Environment variables make it easy to set up once and job creation is easy. We use Metadata tables to just loop through the list of tables that need to be loaded. So development is just a matter of seconds when there are new tables to be loaded.

Matillion ran circles around Stitch and Striim both in functionality, setup, and performance. There was no real comparison. Fivetran massively outperforms Matillion in pretty much every facet of the production from setup, maintenance, visibility, and usability. It already has the ability to connect any data source to a destination regardless of database type. Why we chose Matillion over Fivetran is that, for our current needs, Matillion provides us with the functionality that we need and a much more competitive price for a smaller company.

Matillion is cheaper and we really like the customer support of Matillion as well as lerning materials provided by Matillion were far better. They also made connectors for us for free while others were charging us for it.

I tried to use several opensource tools before Matillion. They were not bad, but I spent a ton of time maintaining the system, and debugging why things wouldn't work. It also seemed like everything needed a hack to get it working properly. With Matillion, it just works outside of the box, and they have a lot of good documentation explaining how to set it up and use it.

We have selected Matillion because it provides similar if not exactly the same functionality as Qlik at 1/3 of the cost. Matillion are also working closly with Snowflake to integrated all of our Data Platform needs going forward. This will truely add value to our business in the future.

When compared with other technologies , Matillion was cost effective , more scalable and flexible in terms of complexity and components. The licensing cost of Matillion was also less and the flexibility with components helps in implementing complex business logics. The training cost of Matillion is also less and we can start with implementation in Matillion quite quickly.
