Astronomer

Astronomer is well suited for workflow and dependency management for enterprise-level data lakes. It is not a product for data processing though. Different source systems can be integrated, it also provides powerful interfaces for alerting and monitoring. Easy to build DAGs, graphical UI, API support makes the product more user-friendly as well. Astronomer also does a great job on user training.

IBM InfoSphere DataStage

DataStage is well suited for any size of company that's looking to move, transform, clean data and easily create data-warehouses that would help to make data ready to be presented for decision making. Data Stage would easily integrate with companies that use IBM DB2 as their main RDBMS.A scenario where it less suited could be cost. I have noticed IBM tools tend to be a little more costly than average.

Cons

Astronomer

  • More language agnostic
  • Flexible fork and join capabilities
  • Near real time UI updates in case of deployment of enhanced DAGs
Uddipan Mukherjee | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM InfoSphere DataStage

  • 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.

Our development teams in the company can easily achieve and develop any ETL scripts that are needed to massage and move the data as needed. The company has also maintain this tool for a very long time making it automatic when it comes to ETL needs. We are currently trying to make DataStage our main and probably unique ETL tool

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.

I believe that IBM generally has one of the worst and most complex assistance systems (physical and online) that exists.

Alternatives Considered

Astronomer

Astronomer is a fast, secure, scalable workload management solution. It provides world-class user training along with easy to interact support.
Uddipan Mukherjee | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM InfoSphere DataStage

DataStage offers better integration capabilities without the need to write code manually. It also has a native ETL engine whereas MSIS requires a SQL Server. It has better integration capabilities with data quality, data profiling and data governance tools. The main drawback of DataStage vs. MSIS is pricing.
