The tool is very powerful and user-friendly.The most valuable feature is stability.All of the components are very independent but are tied together to give the business value.A product with good API and EDI components.We can arrange data caching and look at the solid state. Also, the API gateway is a very good component that can handle relevant cachings and integrations, as well as and also load permitting.It's obvious that the heart of the product lies here. It's comprised of all aspects of ESB (Enterprise Gateway, Adapter, TN, Java) and BPM (task, rules engine).

Cons
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.

I would like to have a dashboard where I can see all of the communication between components and the configuration.Technical support is an area where they can improve.The price should be reduced to make it more affordable.The interface needs some work. It is not very user-friendly.We need more dashboards and reporting engines that can provide detailed information for management. In short, we need better analytics.t doesn't represent OOP very well, just a method and proprietary interface called IData.

More SAP Data Services Pricing and Cost Advice »

This is an expensive product and we may replace it with something more reasonably priced.The vendor is flexible with respect to pricing.The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product.It is expensive, but we reached a good agreement with the company. It is still a little bit expensive, but we got a better deal than the previous one.Some of the licensing is "component-ized," which is confusing to new users/customers.
