Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
The solution has improved the time it takes to perform tasks related to batch applications.
The features I find most valuable is the synchronization, verification, functionalities and all the data integration features.
The program is stable and scalable.
The most valuable feature is the building of mockups and tasks.
It has become an easy way to exchange information through any cloud application.
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.
The solution should be more user-friendly.
I would also like to have profiling functionalities and quality transformations in the cloud.
One area that needs to improve is the user experience because it is very complex. The trial version is very complex so it's not easy to start using the program immediately. You must study the rules first.
I would like to see more functionality added so that it is a bit closer to how much you can do with Informatica PowerCenter.
The biggest challenge I see is the IDE's for the cloud and automization are different.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
High-cost of ownership: They could take a page from open source software.
