Cons

  • I would like to have more modules. Eg. : supply chain tool.
Christophe Wins profile photo
  • You must understand and know the algorithms, since the wrong use of them generates more time in processing.
  • Metadata. You need to develop with connectors, and taking all the Metadata from the menu, all the data that you complete manually, you can't track it.

Because it is robust, and it is being continuously improved.DS is one of the most used and recognized tools in the market. Large companies have implemented it in the first instance to develop their DW, but finding the advantages it has, they could use it for other types of projects such as migrations, application feeding, etc.

It could load thousands of records in seconds. But in the Parallel version, you need to understand how to particionate the data. If you use the algorithms erroneously, or the functionalities that it gives for the parsing of data, the performance can fall drastically, even with few records.It is necessary to have people with experience to be able to determine which algorithm to use and understand why.

Alternatives Considered

Cognos is very expensive and needs heavy IT-team to implement it.
Christophe Wins profile photo
Compared to other ETL tools, the connectors really work, and makes the developments less complex because they facilitate the development of the processes. The maintenance of the processes is simple, since it is a very visual tool, and you can count on the technical documentation given by the tool.

Return on Investment

No answers on this topic
  • The connection with SAP has allowed us to extract useful data, allowing us to set aside costly processes such as ABAP, etc.
  • DataStage can load data wherever the data is . This gives you the facility to integrate data, create a DW with all the integrity that you need.

The On-Premise or SaaS solutions are the same price; we provide a dedicated machine or virtual machine for both. For 10 users, the budget is from $15,000 to $90,000 for a full Business Intelligence solution (including licenses and maintenance for 3 years). The installation and configuration cost depends on customer's data architecture, volume and number of sources. It also depends on customizations required (i.e.: exporting pixel to pixel PDF files to a SharePoint platform).
