Overall Satisfaction with Matillion

It is being used across all of our internal data to bring data together for reporting. This includes
Sales, Marketing, Billing, Support and ustomer activity. We have processes that run every minute as well as batch processes that run every day.
  • Quick access to Google Sheets data.
  • Utilizes SQL well.
  • Supports custom API data sources.
  • Pricing is by server size not # of data sources or volume.
  • Source control integration is archaic and not implemented with teams in mind.
  • Has some performance issues related to memory issues.
  • Documentation is lacking and there is no real training available.
  • Big positive on price.
  • Lack of documentation and training makes ramping up difficult.
  • Source control integration makes team development risky.
It is very usable in most cases. The custom API profile creation has a steep learning curve though.
I was up and running with Matillion in less than a week for the initial data sources. I pulled data from using pre-built components.
Memory leak issues have caused our server to crash on occasion.
Matillion is well suited for people with SQL skills and makes it simple to get data into a database quickly without much dev time required.

Source control is not well thought out and is basically unusable.
