We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

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."

Cons
"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
