Comparing Top Data Integration Tools, Software and Vendors

Comparing Top Data Integration Tools, Software and Vendors

Traditional data integration providers continue to offer legacy capabilities for bulk/batch, message-oriented movement, and replication. However, the space has split into two distinct categories, one for on-prem tools, and the other for cloud-based Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS). Traditional products, like those offered by HVR Software, IBM and Adeptia still reign supreme in large, enterprise settings, but face increased competition from cloud SaaS vendors such as Dell Boomi, Jitterbit and SnapLogic.

Cue the process of seeking out, evaluating, choosing, purchasing, and deploying a data integration solution. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to big data. Solutions come in a variety of flavors—ranging from ETL to application integration, and now, all the way to data virtualization and Integration Platform as a Service. Each features a particular set of capabilities, strengths, and drawbacks. Choosing the right vendor and solution is a complicated process—one that requires in-depth research and often comes down to more than just the solution and its technical capabilities.

Here at Solutions Review, it’s our job to help simplify that process. To that end, we’ve created a variety of buyer resources and articles to speed the evaluation of enterprise technology solutions. In our Data Integration Buyer’s Guide, we offer readers a full market overview. This includes company and product profiles and best use cases for the top-28 providers, ten questions for prospective buyers, and our bottom line analysis.

Pair this with Solutions Review’s online directory of data integration tools, platforms and software solutions. It includes an abbreviated overview, contact information and links to each company’s social media handles for the top-28 data integration providers. If you would like a printed version of this page including complete solutions profiles and a list of the top questions to ask in an RFP, click here for a free PDF.

Solutions Review also offers a Data Integration Vendor Map, a visual diagram that plots the top solution providers for Integration Platform as a Service, self-service data preparation, and Enterprise Application Integration across a Venn Diagram. The Data Integration Vendor Map offers a guide for companies small and large to navigate the developing challenge of data preparation and ETL. This research report is the perfect companion to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant or our own Buyer’s Guide.

Data integration vendors covered in our suite of buyer’s resources include Actian, Adeptia, Attunity, Built.io, Celigo, Dell Boomi, Denodo, Hitachi Vantara, HVR Software, IBM, iCEDQ, Informatica, Information Builders, IRI Voracity, Jitterbit, Liaison Technologies, Microsoft, MuleSoft, Oracle, SAP, SAS, Scribe Software, SnapLogic, Striim, Syncsort, Talend, TIBCO Software and Workato.
