Matillion

Extract, transform, load platform for cloud data warehouses

About Matillion

Matillion is an extract, transform, load (ETL) solution for cloud data warehouses including Amazon Redshift, Snowflake and Google BigQuery. It enables users to gather data from various sources and deliver them in structured and semi-structured frameworks using platform's data transformation capabilities. The search functionality lets enterprises find specific results across notes, jobs, and components within projects through term-based searches.

Key features of Matillion include data export/import, collaboration, audit logs, scripting, job scheduling, version control and task management. Businesses can use the automation tools to schedule multiple orchestration jobs against a project at predefined time intervals. Plus, it enables administrators to ensure data security by managing user access across Active/LDAP directories, SSL certificates and authentication to use information from the local directory.

Matillion facilitates integration with several third-party applications to aid with data management across cloud warehouses such as Facebook, MailChimp, Amazon RDS, Hubspot, Salesforce, Elasticsearch, Google Analytics, JIRA, Marketo, and more. It also comes with an application programming interface (API) query component, which allows users to integrate the platform with any JSON or XML-based API.

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.

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

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.

Matillion is a great out of the box product with minimal requirements. You spin the machine up, allow your database's firewall to communicate with Matillion. Start creating jobs, schedule them, and sit back. It helps you focus on visualizing your data.

Pros

It is a pay for what you use type of software. Most other ETL platforms are a flat monthly fee, sometimes at crazy prices. The pay for what you use model makes it easy to justify cost to leadership. You can schedule jobs to make sure you maximize your time.

Cons

The user experience feels a little dated. Some things could be better displayed/ explained.
