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.

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 Pervasive Data Integrator

  • 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.

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 Pervasive Data Integrator

  • 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.
Justin Duperre | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server

  • Licenses are very costly
  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Actian Pervasive Data Integrator

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.)

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 Pervasive Data Integrator

  • 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.
Justin Duperre | 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.
