"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."
