Azure Data Factory

Suitable for virtually any scenario that involves working with linked Service, so that it is possible to connect Azure Data Factory to storage services for SQL data in the cloud, and that it is possible to access them at any time. Serves to make the information much cleaner and have the desired formats and structures in case of working with time tracking or general employee work tracking applications, so it is easy to create accurate and aesthetically acceptable analysis for general tracking software. It is extremely useful if you do not have any data server service, as Azure Data Factory has the ability to maintain almost 90 different data connectors without the need to use a server.

SAP Data Intelligence

Organizations over time generate large sprwals of seemingly irrelatable data. Departments and business units are always on a quest to serve the customers and face outwards. There is never enough time or resources to make sense of data internally. This is where SAP Data Intelligence will allow businesses to leverage data in an unified manner. It's applications include integration, aggregation and processing of data.

SAP Data Intelligence

  • It integrates well with our current ecosystem of SAP products, like HANA.
  • It provides end-to-end machine learning operations, with tools for the complete model life cycle.
  • It has a simple user interface for novice users, with complex tools also available for power users.
  • It builds on SAP Data Hub, providing all the ETL functions of that tool with additional machine learning functionality.
  • It can run in the cloud, no on-premise software management needed.
  • Many programming languages are supported, it provides a sandbox environment for the user to develop in whichever style they prefer.
  • SAP is very actively developing and improving it.

Cons

Azure Data Factory

  • Limited source/sink (target) connectors depending on which area of Azure Data Factory you are using.
  • Does not yet have parity with SSIS as far as the transforms available.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Data Intelligence

  • Better documentation with examples of how to use connectors (i.e. what input/output must look like)
  • Debugging functionality required to understand where pipelines fail and how data looks at that point
  • SAP libraries (e.g. python hana_ml) should be STANDARD and pre-installed to avoid dockerfiles and other workarounds
  • Dockerfile execution takes long times without giving a status where it is failing/held up
  • HANA Read/Write Table operator throws TLS errors which are unlikely when HANA connection generally works

- Difficult debugging, sometimes it does not show where an error occurred so the error finding is difficult- Lot of tabs get opened when working with the tool which is not very user friendly- Pipelines and notebooks were sometimes deleted and could not be restored- Frequently used libraries (such as hana_ml) could not be installed via the dockerfile and should potentially be pre-installed for better usability

We have not had need to engage with Microsoft much on Azure Data Factory, but they have been responsive and helpful when needed. This being said, we have not had a major emergency or outage requiring their intervention. The score of seven is a representation that they have done well for now, but have not proved out their support for a significant issue

Initially we struggle to get help from SAP but then dedicated Dev angel was assigned to us and that simplify the overall support scenario. There is still room of improvement in documentation around SAP Data intelligence. We struggle a lot to initially understand the feature and required help around performance improvement area,

Alternatives Considered

Azure Data Factory

SSIS was used for on-premise SQL work, Azure data factory is required to unlock the full potential of Azure connected databases. The ease of configuration and the ability to schedule workflows solved so many data integration issues at speed. Without investing in ADF we would not have achieved the level of data integration we have.

SAP Data Intelligence was one of the first corporate complete data science solutions to hit the market. We picked this because of our excellent relationship with SAP and our current SAP product environment.
