SAP Data Services Review

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


What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped my organization?

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

What needs 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.

For how long have I used the solution?

1 year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

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

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

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

How are customer service and technical support?

Good support is available via consultants.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Nope, because of its connectivity to BW it was choosen
