Once it has been shipped and installed in your data center, it's just the point of plugging it in and the initial configuration.

I was not involved on the hardware side, but I was on the data modeling aspect. I would say it was straightforward. We used the IBM InfoSphere for the ETL scripts.

Working with some of the other developers, whenever they are given a ticket, it's pretty simple to see what step in the process and additional code needs to be added, or modified, or removed; to see exactly where it is and how it's going to affect things downstream, and to be able to see at what exact point that something has failed. That part, it's been more straightforward and just the visibility of the whole process. View full review »

I wasn't involved in the setup. But it's an appliance, so there is no real setup, other than there is a day for an IBM technician to come out and stand it up. View full review »

The initial setup was very complex. However, this can be attributed to our environment and the complexity of the business which we process. View full review »

Setup is not that complex. Within 24 hours we had everything completed and had copied the dataset from Oracle. Our migration approach was to use a shell script (pipe). View full review »
