Niche Player: Matillion
Matillion is debuting in the Data Integration Magic Quadrant report as a Niche Player. The company’s two products—Matillion ETL and Matillion Data Loader—are focused on cloud-first data integration. The company has a customer base of more than 800 and it has been especially prominent in working within the Snowflake Data Platform environment.
Strengths: Customers gave high marks to Matillion’s cloud data integration functionality, such as its migratable business logic, dynamic ETL and multi-cloud data movement capabilities. The company offers tooling for specific roles such as data engineers, analysts and “citizen integrators.” Gartner also cited the company’s flexible pricing model, which supports cloud scalability, as a plus.
Cautions: Matillion offers limited support for diverse data integration styles and capabilities, according to the Gartner report, and does not support on-premises target systems. And while reference customers said regular product upgrades are improving critical functionality, Gartner said there’s room to improve a number of product features such as scheduling, parallel working, data streaming, logging and process status communications.
