Pros
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.The solution has improved the time it takes to perform tasks related to batch applications.Highly customizable: Allowing you to handle multiple data latencies (scheduled batch, on-demand, and real-time) in the same job.

Cons
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.The solution should be more user-friendly.Working with some of the big data components is good, but I can see improvements are needed.
