We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It is a smart tool for us to design data pipelines. It lets us populate our three data lake instances. We like this solution for its connection capabilities, since it is very important to be able to use many different types of software. We tested a lot of SAP sources successfully, including cloud sources with SAP. It is also very easy to anonymize data with TIBCO, as well as populating HDFS files, packet files, and raw files. It is very easy to do that with Talend Data Fabric."
"We've had no issues with the stability so far."
"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."
"Deployment can be difficult, but I didn't test the latest version yet. With Talend products, every release brings a lot of new features and functionalities. This is never a small adaptation, because the tool is maturing, but we need to test the latest version and to check its deployment capabilities."
"I would like to see better integration with other tools."
"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."
"There are no additional licensing fees when you scale"
