Review of Actian DataConnect (PARTIAL results)
- Basic functionality
- Future prospects

Customers also commented positively on the speed of development of new functionality." Read more in our 100% vendor neutral ETL Tools & Data Integration Survey.
Information from the vendor
Is the ETL Server “cluster aware”, does it support load balancing, failover and other cluster possibilities?
Yes, this is implemented through our Integration Server functionality. Also we embed very easily with ESB such as Sonic ESB and application servers, which provide load balancing, failover and other cluster possibilities.
Our Actian Data Profiler and Actian Data MatchMerge is included in the suite.
Actian DataConnect is awarded product of the year by Searchdatamanagement for ease of use. Learning time varies from 2 hours depending on user’s familiarity with data concepts and the nature of the integration use case. The first dramatic change in the newest version of the product is the user interface, the “old” version actually managed to score negative points for Ease of Use and the new version is very intuitive to use, it also gives you the chance to construct data integration either as a mapping or as a process, most products only support one of the two methods.
