Workato is a data integration tool that performs basic integration tasks across databases and cloud applications. Complex workflows created in Workato need to be broken down into multiple recipes. The integration tool offers a drag and drop feature that has the capacity to solve simple data challenges using pre-built connectors for apps with user roles and permissions. Creating custom code with Workato does require a fair amount of programming knowledge and data must be manipulated manually through Workato’s pre-defined mechanisms. Workato has a fully cloud-native architecture, however, they do not offer on-premises implementation capabilities, which in turn limits customers that are security conscious. Workato’s entry-level package is costly; therefore, users transforming smaller sets of data may not enjoy the cost saving effect of an integration tool. Workato’s plans also lack any real sense of transparency; therefore, specific features and services that don’t come standard with a particular package and are only included at an additional cost to the end user.
