I would like to give it a 9.5 or so. Only a few aspects of the usability need some work. These are trivial things to fix, but really annoying to an experienced user.

I was able to get up and running with Matillion in 1-2 hours with a simple job my first time using it. It's pretty intuitive and straightforward. No YAML's, config files, local installations, reading of complex documentation, or understanding of unique open-source frameworks.

It has given us excellent services and lead to the growth of our organization. Our organization departments usually get an opportunity to work on data that is secure and make informed decisions. In overall data, Matillion has been very effective in data management. Distribution of data across our organization and effective storage for referencing has contributed to excellent data handling.

It's easy to understand how the flow works and all the features provided by the tool. You also can find some information on their website or Youtube channel.

It is good. Matillion is easy to use, the connection is web-based, fast, and always works. The "search" into each object simplifies the construction of transformations and joins. The SQL is always retrievable from jobs, therefore the debug phase is also easy to analyze. Moreover, in case of need, you can also write your own SQL into the appropriate object.

I find Matillion very intuitive and quickly got to grips with it. I have found that developers with a more purist coding background have struggled to get to grips with it more, particularly in relation to managing variables. For me personally, this has not been an issue and the online documentation has been excellent in digging deeper into specific functional areas

Works well for people that like to visualize things, as each job and transformation is displayed on a graphical interface. A job or transformation can be a large set of tasks or can be broken down into individual ones so that diagrams do not get too complicated and out of hand.

It is generally user friendly in terms of the various tools, but I think there is room for improvement in terms of seeking support or examples from other users.

Matillion providing underline features of the database and unique functionality in connectors, increase our day-to-day work solution using the tool. For example, Snowflake database supports for JSON file system and thus using Matillion with Snowflake offers to flatten as an additional component is exceptional. Another example: Data could relive under FTP, sFTP, Cloud system (S3), databases and matillion have support to all, thus increasing the usability.

It's very easy to use because of its graphical nature. Ultimately, it is a wrapper for activities you could do using SQL, Python, and AWS services, and by presenting those activities in a simple interface it makes it easier to perform them without having to worry about a lot of extraneous details.

Matillion has a clean and consistent interface that is readily approachable by anyone experienced with a visual or flow based ELT tool. The ability to rapidly onboard new users, reaching productive output in a few hours, is a key part of the value proposition. That it is usable by a wide range of skill levels is testament to the thought put into its overall design.

It's a mixed bag of usability: takes some getting used to, learning curve (not sure why some components can be used in "transformation jobs" but not "orchestration jobs" ?) but once you understand it, it's fairly usable.

I can say Matillion can improve on a few things as answered in the previous question. But, I would still rate it 10 because I am completely dependent on it in my day to day activities. One of the reasons I took up a job is to be told in the interview that they were intending to purchase Matillion and they did!
Overall, Matillion is quite easy to use for any one with basic understanding of SQL. Can integrate external data sources with simple setup. For me, helps in answering all the business questions from my stakeholders with Tableau as data visualization tool.
