Pros
Overall it is user-friendly, easy to develop & deploy, secure ELT for big data use cases. It supports a lot of already built useful connectors, which helps to reduce marketability cost and time.
The support team has been very responsive in resolving some Azure-related issues, tuning our instance, and helping to understand the nuances of how it works.
Their support team are also very responsive, and Matillion are always keen to help you get the most out of their software, so there's a lot of support if you want it.
Cons
When they eventually respond to messages it is with an unhelpful response. Generally they will blame us for issues on their end, or they misunderstand the problem completely.
There is no restart-from-point-of-failure option for failed loads. Everything has to start from scratch or remaining jobs need to be run manually.
The pricing model is frustrating. You are billed for when the machine instance is ON, not when it is actively doing something.

The best ELT tool on the market

Reviewed a year ago

Matillion is the single most important piece of software I use on a day-to-day basis. Its' ability to blend a ton of out-of-the-box functionality with the ability to script custom components in Python to author our own integrations is invaluable. It has enabled us to build transformed data within our warehouse, use pre-authored integrations to pull data from vendors, write our own integrations to pull from vendors, and is the single tool we use along with Redshift to provide visibility to all of the data within our business. I am a huge fan of Matillion and have used it in 2 different orgs. It is one of the only software tools I will champion across any org I move to.

Pros

-Extremely easy deployment with cloud formation template. -Excellent pre-authored integrations that are easily extensible/customizable. -Easy to use UI to build complex transformations. -Extremely flexible logic with static and grid variables to intelligently execute jobs and branch as needed.

Cons

-No automated scheduling based on dependent table updates. (This is possible to set up, but not out of the box.) -Support SLAs have gotten worse over time.

Easy to use solution, allowing rapid delivery of ELT processes

Reviewed 3 years ago

We came to Matillion while looking for a tool that would allow us to orchestrate our load processes for Amazon Redshift. We'd used other ETL tools previously, were blown away by how easy it was to pick up and understand Matillion. We liked the simplicity, and the fact that we could always dig into the SQL that was generated. New features are added frequently, and we usually find one or two improvements that directly impact us with each release. Their support team are also very responsive, and Matillion are always keen to help you get the most out of their software, so there's a lot of support if you want it. 2+ years later, and we're using Matillion to run all our ELT jobs across various data warehouse projects, and very happy with it.

Pros

- Very intuitive design environment - super quick to learn. - Components map closely to SQL capabilities in Redshift. - Easy to view the SQL generated. - Sample, row count, and data lineage make it easy to unit test as you build. - Powerful management options via REST API (orchestration, Github integration, etc.). - Native AWS integration. - Aggressive release cycle, constantly adding new features. - Easy to document in-workflow. - Lots of third party integrations.

Cons

- User concurrency/licencing model (simple, but can't be customised to fit your need). - Exception handling could be improved. - A single Task View would be helpful for multi-environment/project support.

Responsive to User Needs

Reviewed 3 years ago

Gets better and better with each release. Keep up the good work!

Pros

I've been using Matillion for about 2 and a half years. I've seen the software improve so much in that time. If I ever found a feature to be lacking, it would be included within the next couple release cycles. The software really seems to adapt as user needs have been evolving. Some of my favorite recent features are the ability to configure some components with just text (really saves me time) and the many Grid orchestration components which allow me to greatly reduce the complexity of the orchestration jobs.

Cons

UX is sometimes lacking or inconsistent. For example, let's say my goal is to replace an existing job with a new job of the same name. I delete the old job, and import the new one with the same name. All Orchestration components that used that job will understand to use the new job, but for some reason the scheduler doesn't. Also, jobs will have validation errors simply because the components haven't been validated (grey borders). It can be confusing because you may be searching for an error in your work when all you actually have to do is revalidate the job.

Great for pipelining data to warehouse/lake, not getting it back

Reviewed 3 years ago

It was easy to get set up, and it worked great for pushing data into Snowflake as a data warehouse. However, we quickly realized that we would need yet another tool to get the data back out to the source systems to synchronize/integrate it. We could sort of do it with Matillion, but it required a lot of custom programming and was not very intuitive. We ended up using a different iPaaS tool that could handle traffic/integration in both directions.

Pros

It is extremely fast and easy to pull data from various sources and pipe it into Snowflake. The graphic interface lets this happen without programming.

Cons

There is almost no ability to get data back from your warehouse into the other systems to synchronize the data. It's great to have it all in the warehouse, but it seems pretty critical to have that data flowing back to other systems that are part of your environment. The pricing model is frustrating. You are billed for when the machine instance is ON, not when it is actively doing something. So, if you have a couple hours of job that run in a day, you have to shut down the machine to save money the rest of the day. With it shut down, development can't happen. So, we had to turn it on and off all the time. It would be much better if they billed as it is used, not as it is on.

A good tool for large-scale ETL into Cloud Data Warehouses

Reviewed a year ago

We're able to rapidly load large amounts of data into Snowflake and schedule any SQL tasks to run against snowflake.

Pros

Web-based, Runs in AWS so it can sit close to your data if you're using a cloud warehouse. You only have to pay per minute that you have the instance on which is a BIG plus.

Cons

Not nearly as many features and user-friendly data transformation tools as a competing software such as Alteryx has. As such, this tool is not as convenient or flexible for detailed data transformations. We mostly use it for bulk loading which it is very fast and good at.
