Once it has been shipped and installed in your data center, it's just the point of plugging it in and the initial configuration. IBM people come and when they install it, they initialize it and then they give us the password and from there we move on in. It's very simple from there. View full review »

As the box was very heavy, datacenter flooring required additional reinforcement. The box runs Linux and the initial setup is quite straightforward. ODBC drivers on the servers (ETL or reporting) which connect to the box may need to be upgraded. View full review »

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. Those seem to give plenty of visibility for allthe different steps in the ETL process, especially debugging or going in and making modifications as different tickets come through. 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 »

IBM sets up the NPS and does the initial configurations. As an admin, you will have a completely configured system ready to work on. 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 »

The rule of thumb in the data warehousing/business intelligence space starts with a simple PoC. That being said, there must be a few questions to be answered by the platform. The data model must be simple and flexible enough to address some “extra questions” within a set timetable, in case the customer wants to extend the PoC prior to making the purchase.

Data Warehouse Architect at a consultancy
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 »
