    The choice to use Actian DataConnect really comes down to pricing and the type of integration project you are performing, specifically with the requirements, whether you want the integration to be on-premise or in the cloud, can you install agents on your servers etc. For integration tools it runs head to head with its competitors.

    SAP Data Intelligence

    In the two organizations that I have used SAP Data Intelligence, it has been effective in managing data operations. SAP Data Intelligence is the most robust data integration and management solution that I have ever come across. I would highly recommend this service to all prospects that are looking to create, execute and reuse data models at ease.

    Pros

    Actian DataConnect

    • Map multiple source and destination tables - what would be done in many steps in SSIS can be done in one or two "maps" in Data Integrator.
    • Platform independent, cloud based, no client software.
    • Conversion of data types, write flat files - this helps us with integrating systems.
    • Fairly straightforward to use if the user has ETL experience.
    Justin Duperre | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP Data Intelligence

    • It integrates well with our current ecosystem of SAP products, like HANA.
    • It provides end-to-end machine learning operations, with tools for the complete model life cycle.
    • It has a simple user interface for novice users, with complex tools also available for power users.
    • It builds on SAP Data Hub, providing all the ETL functions of that tool with additional machine learning functionality.
    • It can run in the cloud, no on-premise software management needed.
    • Many programming languages are supported, it provides a sandbox environment for the user to develop in whichever style they prefer.
    • SAP is very actively developing and improving it.

    Cons

    Actian DataConnect

    • Integration Manager needs better scheduling improvements. Like dependencies, and not running a process again if the prior run is still running.
    • New connector development does not seem a priority.
    David Byrd | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP Data Intelligence

    • Better documentation with examples of how to use connectors (i.e. what input/output must look like)
    • Debugging functionality required to understand where pipelines fail and how data looks at that point
    • SAP libraries (e.g. python hana_ml) should be STANDARD and pre-installed to avoid dockerfiles and other workarounds
    • Dockerfile execution takes long times without giving a status where it is failing/held up
    • HANA Read/Write Table operator throws TLS errors which are unlikely when HANA connection generally works

    - Difficult debugging, sometimes it does not show where an error occurred so the error finding is difficult- Lot of tabs get opened when working with the tool which is not very user friendly- Pipelines and notebooks were sometimes deleted and could not be restored- Frequently used libraries (such as hana_ml) could not be installed via the dockerfile and should potentially be pre-installed for better usability

    Initially we struggle to get help from SAP but then dedicated Dev angel was assigned to us and that simplify the overall support scenario. There is still room of improvement in documentation around SAP Data intelligence. We struggle a lot to initially understand the feature and required help around performance improvement area,

    Alternatives Considered

    Actian DataConnect

    Data Integrator was initially a part of a package deal for us with our new Student Information System. It was chosen prior to my arrival at the institution. Since I discovered we have SQL Server licenses, we have decided to use SSIS instead since I have a background in the MSBI stack and SSIS appears to be more straightforward (process flow philosophy vs "map" philosophy.)

    SAP Data Intelligence

    One of the reasons to pick SAP Data Intelligence is the speed and security it provides, in addition to the excellent support it provides. It is also compatible with all popular databases, which is another reason to choose it.

    Return on Investment

    Actian DataConnect

    • Our customer likes the consistent reliable integrations we have built so we [got] a definite return on investment.
    • Problems are fairly easy to handle and rework.
    David Byrd | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP Data Intelligence

    • Automation of data management slashed tasks by over 60% in most departments for the first 8 months.
    • Metadata catalogs have enabled us to categorize data from disjointed sources in one place.
    • It runs multiple ML models which enhances flexibility when managing data.
