"Nice bundle of softwares"

What do you like best?

Altova suite is giving a full brunch of features for both XML, Json, CSV, webservices, DBs

What do you dislike?

In Mapforce versioning is not an option, and commenting a mapping is not easy: hard to remember why you did something in a complex mapping.

In Mapforce, for some features you need to use the "Mapforce server" (i.e. https webservices /tokens)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Altova has no real rivals for a lot of vertical features.

Using complex jsons and XML with a visual instrument and compile code without writing a line, is a very nice approach.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data mapping, interations, filesystem transformation. The bundle is a mix of useful tools from basic coding (xmlspy and diff dog) to data mapping (mapforce and flextext), to database management (databasespy), to data rendering (stylevision) and u-modeling (umodel)

"Wide Range of Uses, Full Suite of Options"

What do you like best?

I like that there are so many options and different aspects included in the software suite. I specifically needed the XML editor and this has worked great. It did take a little time and testing to figure out how to do what I needed with the XML editor. It took some trial and error, but I think that is to be expected with a robust software package.

What do you dislike?

The software required a good amount of RAM on your PC. I had a high powered PC and had to request more to be installed. It also slows all the other processed on my PC while I am using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very robust package with lots of options and added software features for XML.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to view, edit, search and export very large XML files quite easily with this software. The searching features have been a great use and surprise to me.

What XML Databases solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Altova mission kit - ultimate tool for xml"

What do you like best?

If your work requires you to work with xml, this suite of tools is mandatory for you. Define, modify, analyse xsd and xml in xmlspy. If you need to do data transformation via xslt or other, mapforce is what you need. Its drag and drop interface makes it easy.

What do you dislike?

I've been usin these tools for over 8 years, with at least one new version a year. Don't see much in terms of changes accross the versions

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this mostly for system integration purposes, data transformation between systems. Data exchae between Sap ECC and other platforms, including Siebel and web ordering platform.

"A must have when dealing with xml files"

What do you like best?

I love xml features such as grid view and xml data export to relational databases. Ability to validate a file against schema, running xslt to manipulate xml files. I like diff dog compare features and ETL capabilities of map force.

What do you dislike?

File compare features can be enhanced. There should be an option to not take into consideration the order of sub elements when comparing two xml files.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We exchange multiple xml files with different vendors on daily basis. Altova mission kit have been very useful in troubleshooting issues.
