We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The data transformation is the solution's most valuable feature."
"The most valuable feature is connectivity to data sources."
"Overall, it's a good tool. It's currently number one on the market. It pretty much has all the necessary capabilities to pull the incremental data from the source system, technically speaking."
"The transformation work called for Informatica PowerExchange. It was easy to work with this and very stable."
"Mainstream integration and real-time integration are the best features."
"The user interface and user experience are perfectly all right."
"Provides a significant amount of control over the landscape and overall implementation."
"This product is easy to install and it can be done in a few hours."
"For report scheduling, I always prefer SAP because it has the most powerful scheduling features, like sending reports to more than 1,000 customers per day. That option is not as good in Microsoft BI and in Tableau it only exists as an add-on option."
"What I like best about this solution is that it is built into the SAP line, making it easier to integrate with other SAP products."
"The solution needs better integration with other tools."
"Technical support can be improved with respect to delays in ticket response time."
"The one place where it could be improved is definitely pricing. That's a very big problem. It depends product to product, but pricing is an issue."
"Integration with the largest number of databases and other systems would be important."
"Real-time has not been enhanced that much over the past few years. There has not been as many features added like they did before."
"Informatica is very expensive in all aspects, so the pricing is something that could be improved."
"Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,"
"I would like to have easier integration with cloud platforms."
"The analytics part of SAP has not been that good up until now. They're still in the infant stage and development is still going on. SAP has some cloud analytics and they're trying to configure it in Lumira, but it's not that good at this point."
"The interface can be simplified because it is not a user-friendly experience."
