We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The solution has improved the time it takes to perform tasks related to batch applications.""The product is a stable and powerful data management solution that can run in parallel mode for enhanced speed.""The most valuable feature is the ability to transfer information via notes.""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 data lineage report can be filtered for reporting. The reports are user-friendly and take less time to find what you need.""The ETL tools are probably the most valuable feature. It has an IBM tool, a friendly UI and it makes things more comfortable.""The most valuable feature is the product's versatility to inject data.""Finding logs is very easy on the solution."

Cons
"The solution should be more user-friendly.""The interface needs work to be more user-friendly.""The documentation and in-application help for this solution need to be improved, especially for new features.""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.""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.""Reduced cost would allow more customers to choose the product. It's quite expensive in relation to the cost of other similar solutions.""The interface needs improvement. It is really too technical. That is the main problem.""The template mapping could be easier."
