I'm an enterprise and information architect, and we're a customer of IBM. I personally don't use the product but assist companies in the market do for making the integration picture and design.
We primarily use the solution for the UTS tool as well a for billing and data. We use it to clean the data from different systems and for pulling in data.
My customers use it. I don't use this solution. It's used to extract data from several different sources, as well as to store data and load it into a data warehouse.
My company is a consulting firm and I'm a managing partner. We consult for large size companies in the telecommunications, banking and insurance sectors. We partner with IBM. We're not using the latest version of DataStage but one of the more recent ones. I use the product for a migration project. It's a DB2 to Oracle migration project and the source database is mainframe. I need DataStage for that purpose.
It is in the environment of our client, who is a large Russian bank. They are in the top 20, as of August, and have the re-maintenance project of their data warehouse solution based on IBM technologies. They use IBM BWD, a banking data model, on Netezza and DataStages in ETL tools. It is a native case. We are using the on-premise deployment model.
We are a consultancy company, so we are not using DataStage for our own purposes. We deploy it for our customers. We use it to supply data integration and data warehousing solutions based on the specific needs of clients.
We primarily use the solution for ETL jobs and movement of data.
We implement this solution for our customers. The majority of them are Enterprise companies.
