We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"I am impressed by the solution's interface.""We are able to set rules, establish a data quality management platform, and monitor the quality.""The solution is applicable for both technical and business users.""Seeing the data in the mapping itself is really nice.""It is very useful for testing purposes and designing mappings for small projects. If you go for IDQ in the mapping itself, you can see the data. You can then correct it, and test it so easily. It is working fine. It is also stable, scalable, and easy to deploy.""The user interface is flexible and the visibility of the data flow is amazing."

"The logic is also simple. It makes it easy to build your extraction.""The fact that it's built on SQL, it makes it easy to write code. The database and the connection are quite smooth.""The user interface is ok.""It is a powerful product with a broad range of features.""The HANA database, which is very fast, is a valuable feature.""The reporting on the data, even from third-party software, is very good.""The maintenance of data services is the solution's most valuable feature.""The most valuable feature is the logging capability."

"Informatica is very expensive.""I would like to see better visuals for business users, such as a dashboard where they can precisely track where problems are.""The ability of the product to leverage the power of big data could be improved.""Although we are very satisfied with the design of the UI, executing tasks with it can be difficult.""It can be improved in terms of performance and execution. I'm expecting better performance. It currently has some restrictions in terms of execution. For example, if we want to run it in the command mode and execute it, there are some restrictions, and we are facing some issues with a huge volume of data. These restrictions are not there in Informatica PowerCenter because we are able to execute a huge volume of data, and there are more ways to execute it.""The tool's performance is an area that should be given further consideration."

"Scheduling of jobs in the sequence is not available. It's a very tedious process to do that particular task. If there was a tool to schedule in the sequence that would be extremely helpful.""The description of error messages isn't extensive, although they point to the problem. With other solutions, like Talend, I was able to use the debugger to get directly to the problem, but with SAP Data Services the debugger is not working. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the version specifically, but I'm using it in an enterprise environment and I can't do an upgrade.""The initial setup is complex.""Newer feature integration is lagging behind the company acquisitions and the product could do more to service a broader range of devices.""Integration with other products could be improved.""The solution should offer more machine learning and automation.""The pricing of the solution should be improved.""The interface is not quite user-friendly and is in need of improvement."
