Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"This is an established product with powerful data analysis and varied options for user entry points.""The solution is very stable. We haven't faced any issues with glitches or bugs. We haven't had any crashes.""If you compare it to SQL, the memory and development times are very quick.""The technical support is excellent.""In terms of which features I have found most valuable, I would say the importing and exporting features. Additionally, the data sorting, categorizing and summarizing features, especially how it can summarize based on categories. These are the key features.""The product offers very good flexibility."

More SAS Data Management Pros »

"It's already very user-friendly and has a good dashboard.""There are many good features in this solution including the data fields, database integration, support for SQL views, and the lookups for matching information.""The most valuable features for our company are the flexibility and the quick turn around time in producing simple ETL solutions.""I have used most of the standard SQL features, but the ones that stand out are the Data Flows and Bulk Import.""It is easily scheduled and integrates well with SQL Server and SQL Server Agent jobs.""Its compatibility with Microsoft products has been very valuable to our company. It fits well within the architecture.""The simplicity of the solution is great. The solution also offers excellent integration.""The reporting on the solution is perfect. I didn't expect to see reporting features, but they are great."

Cons
"Very little needs to improve but perhaps a nicer graphic interface and remaining competetive in the growing field of data analytics.""The pricing of the solution needs to be improved. They need to work to make it more affordable.""We find we often have to go back and re-train users when there are changes made to the solution because the changes are not intuitive.""With SAS Data Management, you have to purchase an external driver, configure all of the tables for all of the data that you will extract from Salesforce. It's not a straightforward process.""One problem is accessing the data using a solution other than SAS. The SAS data, which we create in the SAS, cannot be accessed by other tools. We can't open those data in other applications. So we need to have that application in place.""The solution could use better documentation."

More SAS Data Management Cons »

"Sometimes when we want to publish to other types of databases it's not easy to publish to those databases. For example, the Jet Database Engine. Before the SSIS supported Jet Database Engine but nowadays it doesn't support the Jet Database Engine. We connect to many databases such as Access database, SparkPros databases and the other types of databases using Jet Database Engines now and SSIS now doesn't seem to support it in our databases.""The debugging could be improved because when it came to solving the errors that I've experienced in the past, I've had to look at the documentation for more information.""I come from a coding background and this tool is graphically based. Sometimes I think it's cumbersome to do mapping graphically. If there was a way to provide a simple script, it would be helpful and make it easier to use.""This solution needs full support for real-time processing.""Improving the login procedure would make our reporting easier on monitoring our ETL processes.""We're in the process of switching to Informatica, and we need to work out data lineage and data profiling and to improve the quality of our data. SSIS, however, is not that compatible with Informatica. We managed to connect it to Informatica Metadata Manager, but we don't get good lineage, so we have to redo all our ETLs using the Informatica process in order to accept the proper data lineage.""The interface could use improvement, as well as the administrative tools. Jobs fail from time to time for different reasons. It's not a problem with Microsoft, or SSIS itself. The problems are external, but to find the problems and analyze them it takes too much time.""There was also not enough instructions from Microsoft in regards to this application or this technology, which can easily be improved upon."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"While it is even free for personal use on the cloud, it can be expensive for desktop installations and enterprise use."

More SAS Data Management Pricing and Cost Advice »

"My advice is to look at what your configuration will be because most companies have their own deals with Microsoft.""This solution is included with the MSSQL server package.""t's incredibly cost effective, easy to learn the basics quickly (although like all ETL tools requires the traditional learning curve to get good at) and has an immense user base.""It would be beneficial if the solution had a less costly cloud offering."

Top Answer: The interface is very user-friendly.
Top Answer: Are you aware that SSIS is free if you own SqlServer? And that’s just production.  So it’s a bit of a curious question. You will have to run it on the sqlserver to avoid a separate license but that’s… more »
