"We can do more in two hours with SnapLogic than we could in two days with [“other”] solutions."
- Dinesh Gopinathan, Enterprise Applications Manager, Adobe
The difference is clear.
Matillion can't be used for app-to-app integration as most of its connectors can only be used to read data. It also can’t be used to write data to endpoints other than cloud data warehouses, certain databases, and only 2 applications. SnapLogic on the other hand provides best-in-class app-to-app integration capabilities.
Matillion provides very basic ETL support such as executing scripts. Most of the data transformations are pushed down to the target CDW. SnapLogic provides extensive ETL capabilities along with ELT support via visual data pipelines.
TCO and Predictability
Matillion costs $30k/yr for simple data loading and ELT. You will also incur heavy CDW computing costs and need a separate tool for app-to-app integration. SnapLogic gives you an option to pick between ETL and ELT to optimize your costs and all these capabilities are available on one platform at a much lower TCO.
Matillion costs vary based on the amount of data moved to the CDW and the number of users using the platform. Hence it is harder to assign a budget to it. SnapLogic provides node-based, user-independent pricing that provides predictability that enterprises rely on.
Productivity and Maintenance
Matillion has slow response times for debugging and error-handling, and lacks AI-based assistive features that can improve user productivity. SnapLogic provides extensive dashboards, drill down capabilities, and logging for faster debugging. SnapLogic is an AI-powered platform that accelerates time to market and delivery of data for analytics.
