Actian DataConnect

If your company houses a lot of data locally and needs to free up space, the Actian DataConnect Hybrid Cloud Data Warehouse is an excellent solution for the price. It also allows for complex queries and even some basic data analytics, like Market Basket Analysis. Their free trial period is extremely convenient and you may discover more uses for it than you originally think.

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

It is suited for taking data from multiple sources simultaneously like for example the streaming data of transactions in retail stores. It processes the data at a pretty high pace and gives high results every time.It is less appropriate sometimes because it hangs sometimes and does not have a large user community available over the internet.

Pros

Actian DataConnect

  • The large connector base for DataConnect is outstanding. However even when they do not have a custom connector, they have a web services Invoker which allows you to connect to any web services.
  • The underlying scripting language is Visual Basic-ish. Very easy to start.
  • The product has been around a long time, through multiple company acquistions, and still is a competitive player via pricing.
  • Support team is awesome.
  • Large user community.

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

  • Integrability with different data sources. The provision of native connectors is complete and there is the possibility of implementing new ones.
  • Flexibility in power sources, thanks to the connectors with the main DB and the integration of all types of formats (XML, CSV, JSON, etc.)
  • End-to-end process with the SAS suite. Products such as SAS Visual Analytics allows the visualization of the data produced, or Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning which allows you to perform advanced analysis.

Cons

Actian DataConnect

  • Pace of implementation
  • Individualized training
Kyle Moninger | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

  • Its not easy to move SAS users to other open source products because of the easy programming in SAS.

The main negative point is the use of a non-standard language for customizations, as well as the poor integration with non-SAS systems. However, there is no doubt that it is a high-performance and powerful product capable of responding optimally to certain requirements.

Actian DataConnect is a great product for data storage, processing, and complex querying. It also has the added benefits of basic data analytics and data mining. We were surprised at how easy it was to perform Market Basket Analysis. I would highly recommend this system to a large business and encourage you to start a free trial period.

Alternatives Considered

Actian DataConnect

As I stated earlier, DataConnect makes a head-to-head run against the others. It has advantages and disadvantages compared to the competitors. The choice really comes down to pricing and specific requirement needs for the project you are planning. Questions such as On-premise or Cloud, Security, and Specific Connectors available will drive your decision.
David Byrd | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

Because of ease of using SAS DI and data processing speed. There were lots of issues with AWS Redshift on cloud environment in terms of making connections with the data sources and while fetching the data we need to write complex queries.

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

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

  • Implementation time to be expected due to the expertise on SAS tools and its language.
  • Complete and very powerful tool, especially combined with other SAS products.
  • Modern product always in step with the times and needs, certainly not cheap.
