Overall Satisfaction with Matillion

We are using Matillion throughout our organization to run and automate all data pipelines into our data warehouse. We integrate various sources from API's, Python Scripts, SQL Scripts, and other databases, into a single data warehouse.
  • Easy to use.
  • Ability to leverage several technologies (SQL, Python, Bash, AWS).
  • Pre-built connectors to simply provide connections between several commonly used technologies.
  • Their customer support is extremely prompt and good at helping out.
  • Alerting needs to be done via AWS SNS, not pre-built in the platform.
  • There's an inability to track data lineage (where did a column of data from a downstream table come from?)
  • Matillion has cost-effective pricing for our tight budgets.
  • Gave us the ability to automate workflows to near real-time via scheduling or SQS.
  • Has very tight integration with the AWS Platform.
This is a truly intuitive platform that can be picked up in minutes. I would call it, in terms of usability, basically the Tableau of ETL tools.
I was not a part of the implementation of Matillion, but given my experience with their support team and using the tool, I couldn't imagine more than 48 hours to get the platform running and proper database credentials to get things moving.
This is not a tool suited for a very large enterprise like Amazon. It's very good for small to medium businesses. The company needs MDM management, pre-integrated alerting capabilities, and data lineage capabilities to be called truly enterprise scale.
Matillion is one of the best ETL tools I've ever used. I hope they continue to do well, and I will continue to recommend it to friends.
