"The maintenance of data services is the solution's most valuable feature.""The most valuable feature is the ETL functionality.""The reporting on the data, even from third-party software, is very good.""The most valuable feature is the logging capability.""Data Services' table comparison mechanism is very powerful. It's pretty hard to find a similar feature in other solutions.""Its integration capabilities and the data migration capabilities are the most valuable. It is very good for SAP and non-SAP tools.

More Informatica Enterprise Data Catalog Cons »

"It's an ETL that is very good with relational databases but not as good with files and semi-structured files.""The skillset of data engineers matters a bit to use all the functionality of this solution. Otherwise, the delivery speed won't be faster.""The interface is not quite user-friendly and is in need of improvement.""There should be some kind of enhancement that can be done on the admin side of certain sites where we can assign the roles and responsibilities. We should be able to control who is using the tool and how.""The pricing of the solution should be improved.""Source code control is another headache. When your source code base gets too large, managing the source code becomes cumbersome.""The solution should offer more machine learning and automation."
