SAS
When data is in a system that needs a complex transformation to be usable for an average user. Such tasks as data residing in systems that have very different connection speeds. It can be integrated and used together after passing through the SAS Data Integration Studio removing timing issues from the users' worries. A part that is perhaps less appropriate is getting users who are not familiar with the source data to set up the load processes.

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.

With SAS, you pay a license fee annually to use this product. Support is incredible. You get what you pay for, whether it's SAS forums on the SAS support site, technical support tickets via email or phone calls, or example documentation. It's not open source. It's documented thoroughly, and it works.

Altova MapForce Server is a powerful data integration tool that supports a wide range of data sources and targets. Talend Data Integration is also a powerful data integration tool, but it does not support as many data sources and targets as Altova MapForce Server. Altova MapForce Server also supports a wide range of data transformation and mapping features, making it a more versatile tool than Talend Data Integration.
