Overall Satisfaction with Matillion

I have used Matillion in various projects in my company for different pharma clients for Life Sciences data. We were building solutions for clients which can help the analytic users and other down streams to consume data as per their requirements. In other Healthcare Analytics Projects, we were extracting the data from different sources like Facebook and Google Analytics and building a repository using Matillion ETL. Matillion was user-friendly and easy to learn and easily integrated with AWS Redshift and Snowflake DBs.
  • Easy integration with AWS Redshift and Snowflake.
  • Pay for what you use.
  • Ease of service.
  • Constant Java heap space errors because of hard limits on EC2 instance hosting.
  • It is expensive considering the infrastructure cost is added to Redshift costs.
  • Matillion does not scale well. It has a hard limit on the hardware / EC2 instances it can use.
