Starfish ETL Review

What do you like best?

The user interface is very easy to understand. They have plenty of data connection types already defined. Including popular web services and ERP packages. Doesn't take a lot of effort to install and setup. It will work on a basic Windows Server with IIS. Updating the software is also a breeze with their update tool. They have very detailed error reporting when the jobs are running. Keeps history of jobs ran with summary details.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit buggy and slow when dealing with web services. It allows you to move forward before its ready. This causes the backend configuration files to get our of sync and you have to discard your work and start over sometimes. Error reporting is not easily exported into text to be read.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have been able to witness many non-programmer users be able to pick up learn Starfish and make ETL maps. This program is very easy to use and you really don't have to be a rocket science to use it like with Scribe or others.

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

Moving data from one system to another without having to write code. It allows it to be repeatable and updated-able when new data elements arise. You can focus on the actual movement of data instead of the underlying code to just make a data connection.

Amazing Product

What do you like best?

I used StarfishETL for converting from a on-premises CRM to a cloud based CRM. This tool is powerful and fast. I cannot image ever using any other tool for migrating or integrating data.

What do you dislike?

There is so much to this tool, and sometimes the documentation is sketchy. However the Starfish support team far makes up for the lack of documentation in certain areas.

I also wish it could fail on just a field and not an entire row.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Conversion tables are a must, and are easy to use.

Amazing solution for those in need of a change!

What do you like best?

Like it states, it is a very fast solution. I demo'ed this product for a collage senior project.

What do you dislike?

Didn't run a full demo on this but from what we can see it seemed to work extremely well. I feel I would need more time with it to really get a better feel for any weaknesses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

System could be a bit more intuitive to the users need. Have to think that you will eventually run into end users who are not as computer savvy. But overall it seemed like it did a great job for what we needed it for. It is certainly an interesting solution specifically for what we trying to use it for.

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

We had to pick a business, talk to them about their pain points and try and find solutions for them. The biggest problem that they had was they were not a fan of their existing CRM setup and wanted to get away from it. Their concern was how difficult it would be to accurately get data over to a new solution. That is where this came in. Worked great, fast and very high % of data retention and accuracy!

Starfish ETL for Data migration

What do you like best?

I've used Starfish for a few smaller data migration into SugarCRM. It makes it easy to get data from systems like goldmine or act that do not have a Rest API. It makes it easy to point and click for minor transformations and to have defined rules for imports.

A little easier to learn than scribe but probably a little slower.

What do you dislike?

Pre-built functions and pre-built connectors to get standard data from other systems.

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