Likelihood to Recommend

Actian Pervasive Data Integrator

I wouldn't recommend Data Integrator over SSIS, but it may be a better tool than other ETL offerings. Having a background in the Microsoft Stack, I am hesitant to recommend any other products especially in a Microsoft-centric company. If this was the only option to use, I think it does a good job at integrating systems after taking time to learn the approach. "Maps" in Data Integrator is definitely different than "process flow" philosophy in SSIS.

SAP Replication Server

It's very well suited in scenario where you expect real-time, transactional data replication with high speed low latency, and no changes in coding with source data schema. I strongly recommend SAP replication server for such requirements where you have business critical needs and want data safety.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Before implementing SAP Replication Server we were facing the challenges to replicate the real-time data from and to our department from Non-EU regions.
  • Since SAP Replication Server is in-place, our client and their shareholders are starting to get real time data from different sources of DBs with very great performance of different transactions, which results in speeding up the process and service with other products.

Cons

  • Sometimes the screen does not load- since it is a web based software, this can be seen as a reliability issue.
  • "Maps" can become somewhat complex, and between multiple developers this can be painful when sharing or explaining others' work.
  • The concept of macros adds flexibility in how to solve problems, but is a separate language and can take time to learn and master.

  • So far we have not dealt with any challenges since we started to utilise its functionality or high speed data replication, with integrated transnational data from different data sources to exchange the replication of data.
  • Our only small concern is it takes extra effort to maintain the hardware and you need special DBAs skills to properly utilise its functionality with its capacity .

Alternatives Considered

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.)

Hands down Sybase has the best replication

Return on Investment

  • This tool was chosen prior to my arrival and was used to build three integrations. We have decided to switch to SSIS since we have licenses for it and it is a more common tool for ETL integrations.
  • It has been difficult to network with individuals that have experience with this tool.
  • Having been a part of a software package purchased, we have chosen to use a different tool for future integrations and plan to rewrite existing integrations.

  • With SAP Replication server, connecting to Big Data is easiest and fastest way to achieve the data transfer and receive requirement with the help of Big data integration such as HIVE connectors, to and from different stage files,
  • One of the great functionalities of SAP RS is, it can maintain business continuity by providing the DR solution without downtime, and it only requires medium expertise to utilise the SAP RS functionality to run. This means that every organisation can get real benefit out of it.
  • SAP has upgrades available that offer effectively optimised performance sizing tools to meet your requirements.
