SAS Data Integration Server Review

Good technical support and very good data manipulation but the transform tool offers limited access


What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to handle the entire dashboarding of certain data points. 

What is most valuable?

The solution offers very good data manipulation and loading.

What needs improvement?

The transform tool has limited access. They should make it more flexible.

If there is any way for the system to analyze and also implement indexing on the data, that would be great.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven't had any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't had any issues with scalability. Right now, we have 300 users. We do plan to increase usage.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very good.

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

We didn't previously use a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex. At the time we implemented the solution, there was no access recommendation using the DI.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

For anyone who deals with data, I'd recommend the solution.

I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. There are many other products out there, like Hadoop, that have a lot of features. I'll probably end up looking into them as a possible option as well.
