IBM InfoSphere DataStage Previous Solutions

Our client previously used SSIS from Microsoft. They also used Oracle. However, they did not have a special solution for ETL. Ten years ago, they used another data warehouse solution which used XML files as a transport layer. DataStage is a directly specialized ETL tool which has instruments built for the ETL process as a stream. It can visualize and can track the ETL process, integrating it with the data governance catalog along with other IBM instruments. Previous solutions, except for SSIS, were just a number of scripts which created a process like peer-to-peer. It wasn't a centralized ETL tool with centralized ETL governance. View full review »

Have used quite a few ETL tools in my job. * Ab Initio: Even pricier, but has a highly competent ETL tool. It is complete, but hard to use. * Informatica: Not as flexible and does not support the same level of complexity in its maps. * Talend: It is a good tool suite, extensive, but can be cumbersome to cite all its pieces. * ODI: For the Oracle centric world. * SSIS: Week when compared to any of the above tool sets.
