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.

We find we often have to go back and re-train users when there are changes made to the solution because the changes are not intuitive.With SAS Data Management, you have to purchase an external driver, configure all of the tables for all of the data that you will extract from Salesforce. It's not a straightforward process.Very little needs to improve but perhaps a nicer graphic interface and remaining competetive in the growing field of data analytics.
