IBM InfoSphere DataStage Other Advice

Ursula Fladeruf
Owner at mip GmbH
I would rate this particular product as a nine out of ten. It is very powerful and very fast, but the problems with the interface make it less than perfect. As far as other advice that I would have for other people considering this as a solution, the first and most important is to examine your needs and decide on the processes you want to build. From that, you can immediately have a better idea of the type of solution that might be best for you. Then it is a good idea to get the advice of a consultant — like us. View full review »

It is the best solution in the IBM environment. It uses IBM data models, such as data quality tools. View full review »

The last version I interacted with was 11.3 because the later versions were cloud-based and usually our customers didn't want to use the solution on the cloud. In terms of advice, I would give to anyone trying to implement the solution is this: you to have accurate sizing. Clients always do the sizing wrong and they need more experience to get the sizing right. Setting up the environments takes sizing into account but it usually makes a lot of problems if the sizing is poor when it starts to operate. Then you have re-implement and it will require an increase in resources that will change your budget. I would rate this solution nine out of ten. View full review »

We use the on-premises deployment model. If you are comparing the solution to Informatica, this solution is much simpler. In Informatica, for example, there might be two to three ways to find a log, but with DataStage, they make it much easier. However, compared to other vendors, IBM's licensing costs are more expensive. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. View full review »

The advice I would give to others is to make sure they define a framework for development and for management. This could be very useful for the future of the product in the company. I would rate the entire solution eight out of ten. I really like DataStage. The product fits our requirements perfectly. We are changing the product now, however, to a cloud-based approach for DataStage. View full review »

Try to do a lot of training before beginning the project. I would rate this solution as seven out of ten because I think there are some problems with the design of the interface. They should also develop new connectors. The solution is quite complex for people and you need a lot of training to use it. View full review »
