We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The core features of the solution we like are the reliability of the data transfer and the accuracy of data read and write. The stability of the solution is also excellent."
"There are some capabilities within SharePlex where you can see how the data is migrating and if it still maintains good data integrity. For example, if there are some tables that get out of sync, there are ways to find them and fix the problem on the spot. Since these are very common issues, we can easily fix these types of problems using utilities, like compare and repair. So, if you find something is out of sync, then you can just repair that table. It basically syncs that table from source to target to see if there are any differences. It will then replicate those differences to the target."
"Because of the volume of the transactions, we heavily use a feature that allows SharePlex to replicate thousands of transactions. It's called PEP, Post Enhancement Performance, and that has helped us scale tremendously."
"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."
"The reporting features need improvement. It would be very good for users to have a clear understanding of the status of replication."
"I don't know how easy it would be to change the architecture in an already implemented replication. For example, if we have a certain way of architecting for a particular database migration and want to change that during a period of time, is that an easy or difficult change? There was a need for us to change the architecture in-between the migration, but we didn't do it. We thought, "This is possibly complicated. Let's not change it in the middle because we were approaching our cutover date." That was one thing that we should have checked with support about for training."
"I would like the solution to have some kind of machine learning and AI capabilities. Often, if we want to improve the performance of posting, we have to bump up a parameter. That means we need to stop the process, come up with a figure that we want to bump the parameter up to, and then start SharePlex. Machine learning and AI capabilities for these kinds of improvement would tremendously help boost productivity for us."
"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."
"It is not as expensive as Oracle GoldenGate and has worked really well within our budgets."
"It's really good value for the money. There are some things they could improve on, but in terms of the pricing, features, and support, as a holistic package, we are not thinking of anything else at this point in time."
"Pricing is good, there is no problem."
"The pricing is a little high to make the product more competetive in the marketplace."
"Its pricing is as per the enterprise agreement and not a concern for us."
"The price is very reasonable."
