We switched from SAP BODS to Dataflux as Dataflux has good data profiling and data standardization capabilities.
I've been using DataFlux for 3 years. We switched from SAP BODS to Dataflux as Dataflux has good data profiling and data standardization capabilities. Since then, we have implemented many Data Standardization and Data enrichment Projects using Dataflux and have found that the most important features are its data profiling capabilities and ease of use. We implemented in-house- setup was very simple. Technical support and customer services are good - 4 out of 5.
