DataStage works better with Linux operating systems when the application services are hosted on Linux system equipment, but it's powerful on Windows too.

The ETL tools are probably the most valuable feature. It has an IBM tool, a friendly UI and it makes things more comfortable.

We would be happy to see in next versions the ability to return several parameters from jobs. Now, jobs can return just one parameter. If they could return several parameters, that would be great.

I really like this tool, but the administration should be on the same client application because a lot of administration features are not on the client-side, and they usually need to have administrative access. It's quite complicated to force IT teams to have separate administrative access from the developers.

They're going to have to go to a more robust software as a service type of tool in order to keep enticing new people. That's one way they can continue to grow the platform if they need to.

Reduced cost would allow more customers to choose the product. It's quite expensive in relation to the cost of other similar solutions.

There are three things that could improve - the cloud, monitoring and cloud integration. It's a solid product but not a modern one and of course it depends what you're looking for.
