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.

All ETL code is stored in repositories in underlying database schemas. The number of users can access and work on the same solution using a client tool. So distributed teams can work on this tool in an efficient manner.The most valuable feature that we use is the Knowledge Modules.It's completely user-friendly.​All our systems can be widely integrated by ODI, such as transactional systems, our data warehouses, and B2B integration.It has the ability to easily load slowly changing dimensions.

Cons
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.

There are certain things where it can be improved. Initial solution setup seems a bit complex at the start, it should be improved because it becomes bit tough for a novice to get started on this. Sometimes error description is not helpful to understand the problem it gives some generic type of errors which are at times not that helpful to understand the underlying root cause of the issue.The performance of the user interface is in need of improvement.Overall the product is fine, but sometimes its reports unknown errors while we compile ETL scripts.It would be really good if Oracle considered enabling the tool to integrate with some other platforms that are deprecated simply for commercial reasonsIt lacks a suite of tools suitable for fully processing data and moving it into decision support warehouses.

Overview
IBM InfoSphere DataStage integrates data across multiple systems using a high performance parallel framework, and it supports extended metadata management and enterprise connectivity.

Oracle Data Integrator is a comprehensive data integration platform that covers all data integration requirements: from high-volume, high-performance batch loads, to event-driven, trickle-feed integration processes, to SOA-enabled data services. Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 12c, the latest version of Oracle’s strategic Data Integration offering, provides superior developer productivity and improved user experience with a redesigned flow-based declarative user interface and deeper integration with Oracle GoldenGate. 

ODI12c further builds on its flexible and high-performance architecture with comprehensive big data support and added parallelism when executing data integration processes.  It includes interoperability with Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB) for a quick and simple migration for OWB customers to ODI12c.  Additionally, ODI can be monitored from a single solution along with other Oracle technologies and applications through the integration with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.
