IBM InfoSphere DataStage Other Solutions Considered

Ursula Fladeruf
Owner at mip GmbH
We currently also use PowerCenter from Informatica as a solution for some clients. It isn't really a previous solution or a solution we evaluated and discarded but it is one that we sometimes use instead of DataStage. It depends on the needs of our customers. The decision on which product to pick has partly to do with what the client wants to do and what we believe is the better solution for them and their needs. We have some projects where we use PowerCenter simply because our customer wants to use it; we have other projects where we use DataStage because of some of these customers are already using DataStage or they prefer it because it is from IBM. In a similar way, we sometimes use Microsoft Integration Services, which is a very small part of our business. But again it isn't so much that we evaluated the solution and dismissed it or switched from using it. These products are opportunities for us to choose between in order to provide the best solution for clients. We evaluate the options and choose the best fit for the project. View full review »

Have done many ETL tool evaluations based on client requirements. DataStage has always been in the top-three. It may not have been selected due to different weights being used for different sections of the evaluation for different clients, but it has always been in the top-three consistently.
