We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It has different type of interfaces that can integrate with companies.
ETL is the most valuable feature.
Finding logs is very easy on the solution.
The most valuable feature is the product's versatility to inject data.
The ETL tools are probably the most valuable feature. It has an IBM tool, a friendly UI and it makes things more comfortable.
The data lineage report can be filtered for reporting. The reports are user-friendly and take less time to find what you need.
DataStage works better with Linux operating systems when the application services are hosted on Linux system equipment, but it's powerful on Windows too.
The most valuable feature is the ability to transfer information via notes.
The product is a stable and powerful data management solution that can run in parallel mode for enhanced speed.
It is not easy to deploy. It requires someone with a high level of knowledge in the solution to deploy it, not just anyone can do it.
There are three things that could improve - the cloud, monitoring and cloud integration. It's a solid product but not a modern one and of course it depends what you're looking for.
The template mapping could be easier.
The interface needs improvement. It is really too technical. That is the main problem.
Reduced cost would allow more customers to choose the product. It's quite expensive in relation to the cost of other similar solutions.
We would be happy to see in next versions the ability to return several parameters from jobs. Now, jobs can return just one parameter. If they could return several parameters, that would be great.
I really like this tool, but the administration should be on the same client application because a lot of administration features are not on the client-side, and they usually need to have administrative access. It's quite complicated to force IT teams to have separate administrative access from the developers.
The documentation and in-application help for this solution need to be improved, especially for new features.
The interface needs work to be more user-friendly.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It is very expensive if we want to scale.
Small and medium-sized companies cannot afford to pay for this solution.
Pricing varies based on use, and it is not as costly as some competing enterprise solutions.
