SAP Data Services Review

Unusual behavior of tables where only solution is to recreate them could be improved but custom functions were valuable.

Valuable Features

Lineage analysis where used, export options, custom functions, connectivity to Business Warehouse (BW).

Improvements to My Organization

Fast data load to BW PSA, more integration options between different DBs.

Room for Improvement

Connections to DBs (datastores), unusual behavior of temp. and permanent tables that just get corrupted sometimes and only solution is to recreate them or re-import from data store.

Use of Solution

1 year.

Stability Issues

Sudden crashing of DS making unsaved changes lost, happens usually when logged in for a long amount of time.

Scalability Issues

Nope, its good in extending the features in terms of DWH scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Good support is available via consultants.

Previous Solutions

Previously BW was being used, but is was a closed system , we had new source application which contained information in oracle and SQL DBs, and BW wasn't very good at loading the data in schedules.

Other Solutions Considered

Nope, because of its connectivity to BW it was choosen
