Cons
"It's not very stable, at least not in the case of the community edition. I'm working with the community edition right now and I think perhaps it is because of that it is not very stable, it causes the system to sometimes hang. I'm not sure if this is the case for pair tiers."

"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 interface is not quite user-friendly and is in need of improvement.""The solution should offer more machine learning and automation.""The pricing of the solution should be improved.""Integration with other products could be improved.""Newer feature integration is lagging behind the company acquisitions and the product could do more to service a broader range of devices.""The initial setup is complex.""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."
