Stable with good data replication but is very difficult to set up

What is our primary use case?

We are a telecommunications company. The information that we have there, it's Oracle Suite including a CRM, help service integration, and more. That's the core of the system. All the information is available to users using Oracle BI, and some other tools. We're very Oracle-based in our product choice.

Pros and Cons

  • "The data replication is very good."
  • "The initial setup process is very difficult and extremely complex."

What other advice do I have?

We don't have a business relationship with the company. We are just users. I'm not sure which version of the solution we're currently using. While telecommunications is an area that always does pretty well - as people need internet and other related services, even in these strange times, it's a strange time in Mexico for a variety of reasons and therefore we are rethinking how we are approaching entire systems and maybe holding off on some decisions until the landscape clears a bit. While I like Oracle as a solution, and its hardware and database are quite good, when we're talking about…

This suite of products performs many different and important tasks as a well-integrated system

What is our primary use case?

I am a freelancer in this area. Microsoft Analytics Platform System is a suite of many different products. I have been busy using Microsoft Analytics Platform for the last 10 years and it is not really one single product. There are many different tools and many different technologies used both on cloud and on-premise. It is maybe a hundred products. There is not one single component that I would call Microsoft Analytics Platform System because it is just that: a system. Because that is the case, it is very difficult to pick one thing as most important or that we use it for most because it is… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "This is a well-integrated solution and that integration empowers results."
  • "Releases of new products and functionality is never accompanied by associated documentation, training and resources that adequately explain the release."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend and do recommend using this product for others who need it. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as an eight-out-of-ten.

User-friendly and has good parallel processing

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to store data.

Pros and Cons

  • "Intelliflex is very scalable. In fact, scalability has improved 100 times by Intelliflex, in my personal opinion."
  • "The reporting side wasn't very good in the past, but with the latest versions, it's getting better. Still, the friendliness of the PDC reporting and functionality needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises version of the solution. I would recommend Teradata IntelliFlex. There's not a better solution on the market. It's one of the best data warehouses you can find. I would rate the solution ten out of ten.
