Cons of the Data Integration Tool

    Here are the cons mostly based on my usage

  • Code Generated in code mode is non editable. So flow can be altered only in design mode. Thereby degrading the flexibility for technology specialist developers.
  • Limit on the components usage in a single job. Maximum accumulated size on the component usage depends on the data integration software used.
  • Multitasking is not possible. i.e. talend software can’t be opened in different workspace simultaneously.
  • Access to source requires a JDBC driver.
  • There are no complementary profiling, data quality or metadata management products. These roles can be fulfilled by third part products but there are few open source options currently available.
  • The product can allocate resources across a grid but does not have the underlying automation of data partitioning and repartitioning and this could result in bottleneck jobs.
