We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"ETL is the most valuable feature."
"Once you have Infosphere up and running properly, it is stable."
"The most valuable feature is the data integration for data warehousing."
"The Hierarchical Data Stage is good."
"We are mostly using transmission rules. It has a lot of functions and logic related to transmission. It is a user-friendly tool with in-built functions."
"The productivity is the most valuable feature. It is very easy to write remediations."
"The installation process is easy."
"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."
"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 setup is extremely difficult."
"The pricing should be lower."
"The response time from support is slow and needs to be improved."
"The interface needs improvement."
"The server is very specific and it is very difficult to get experience with it."
"The customization can be a bit difficult."
"The cost is too high."
"It's very expensive."
"Our internal team takes care of group licensing and cost. We don't have individual licenses. We have group licensing at the company level. Usually, IBM doesn't charge anything separately on the licensing side. For storage and everything else, we are paying around $6,000 per month, which is not very high. It includes Linux data storage, execution, and licensing. They're charging $40 for one-hour execution. Based on that, we are spending around $2,000 on the production environment and $1,000 on the lower environment for testing and development-side executions. For the mainframe, we are using the Db2 mainframe database, and we are spending around $1,000 on the Db2 mainframe database as well. All this comes out to be around $6,000. We, however, would like to have some cost reduction."
"The price is expensive but there are no licensing fees."
"It is quite expensive."
"It's quite expensive."
