Great if you need a visual, customized, powerful data engineering and data integration platform that can do pretty much anything. I have yet to hit a situation that I can't solve one way or another. Not great if you only have time for a plug-and-play solution. This is not Stitch or FiveTran, but if you invest the time to learn and use Matillion you can end up with a vastly better solution to your data needs.

If your company has ever had issues with un-transparent data pipelines, difficulty understanding orchestration of workflows, and issues with data engineering retention and ramp-up, then Matillion is likely the right solution for you. It doesn't require heavy technical skills, just a strong understanding of Data-Eng Concepts. It's low-code/no-code optionality allows for everyone to come in and quickly understand how jobs are interconnected without having to cross navigate multiple systems for connectors, transformations, loads, and logging. It's an all-in-one solution that complements more specialized solutions like Fivetran and Hightouch. You can even set up python connections to orchestrate Fivetran and Hightouch into a Matillion workflow.

It is very well suited in data management and integration. It has saved our organization from data fraud and mismanagement of information from various sources. It has driven our company forward by delivering useful information that is suited to support our goals. Taking data from various sources and sorting it and uploading it in a cloud warehouse has enabled our departments to handle data properly.

Matillion is nice if you don't want to spend time developing a home-built application to perform the ETL step and of course if you have a budget to spend on it. I don't suggest Matilion if you want to customize a lot or if you have a really specific environment to handle data.

It is useful when you need to create a Datawarehouse and put together a complex workflow. The development time is reduced compared to other ETLs. When you are more confident, you can also create complex flows using different job parameters and orchestrator jobs. Buttons for start and end success/end errors are also useful. Connection with source systems is also good.

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.

Matillion is very well suited to connecting to online data sources, as it has an array of connectors that are already set up with third parties. It is easy to get started and can be hosted in AWS or Azure. You only get charged per hour so it is cost-effective if set up correctly.

Matillion works best when automating the workflow from the various digital platforms. It provides the best use-case for automation of any dashboarding/reporting requirement where data is stored in one of the databases and updated regularly. Matillion might not be the best use-case for core ETL operation as it lacks stability for enterprise (but is improving to high standards with every update).

ETL development can happen without much programming using graphical ETL dev tools and Matillion makes it simple. If data movement is what your organization needs then Matillion is your tool. If you need heavy programming for most performant or reusability then Matillion is not very useful.

Matillion is really well suited to environments using Redshift or Snowflake, and that rely on Amazon Web Services. It is also well suited to scenarios where you need to perform a lot of similar ETL tasks with small variations that could be parameterized. It's great if you want to get up-and-running quickly, and don't want to spend a ton of time in configuration and setup; you can get going very quickly out-of-the-box. It would be less appropriate in on-premise scenarios, where all of your data is stored on-premise. If you don't use AWS, you won't get as much value out of it. Also, in environments with large teams and lots of developers modifying jobs simultaneously, it can be a challenge to coordinate work and manage changes.

Essentially Matillion is a nice tool to build a bunch of Redshift queries with added benefits of having a range of integration features. Considering the annual cost is almost equivalent to a junior engineer, we could spend the time to manually write the Redshift queries we need to transform and load our data that can run on our own microservices, and scale them as we see fit so we aren't faced with the hard limits of EC2 instance sizes. We also wont have to worry about hitting Java heap space limits since we can focus more on the Redshift query/transforms optimizing.

It is well suited for anyone needing to create a BI (ETL/ELT) solution on Redshift. It is very easy to use and provides a lot of components similar to other ETL tools. Please note all processing is pushed down to the DB (think ELT). The only downside is some of the under the hood logic is sometimes not acting in the documented/desired fashion, requiring workarounds.

It's perfect for the teams who have very little experience with ETL and want to start creating pipelines with very little effort. It's also a very good solution if pipeline complexity is simple and does not require too much scalability.

Matillion is an excellent fit for organizations that have expertise (and data) in one of the supported engines (BigQuery, Redshift, and Snowflake). ELT workflows are easy to implement and automate against data of varied size. The UI successfully hides the complexity of SQL for users not well verse in it, but provides expert SQL users the ability to implement complex transformations not easily achieved with the standard components.

Good for highly customizable jobs, takes some learning curve but then very flexible.

Less appropriate: the Zuora API has some issues and we had to build the data pull from a bunch of basic API components instead of the proper highlevel one.

I would 100% recommend Matillion for any business who is looking for an ETL solution for their cloud data warehouse especially Snowflake. What worked for us with Matillion is the ability to integrate our external sources (Elastic Search, Google Analytics), transform, automate and create a single data source for further data visualization.

It's perfect for pulling data from SQL server no matter of the amount of the data, recently we have pulled 14 millions of rows and transformed this data in the matter of minutes. Matillion is not great to pull large volumes of data from Google Sheets.
