    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.

    In the two organizations that I have used SAP Data Intelligence, it has been effective in managing data operations. SAP Data Intelligence is the most robust data integration and management solution that I have ever come across. I would highly recommend this service to all prospects that are looking to create, execute and reuse data models at ease.

    Pros

    Microsoft

    • It allows copying data from various types of data sources like on-premise files, Azure Database, Excel, JSON, Azure Synapse, API, etc. to the desired destination.
    • We can use linked service in multiple pipeline/data load.
    • It also allows the running of SSIS & SSMS packages which makes it an easy-to-use ETL & ELT tool.

    SAP

    • 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

    Microsoft

    • 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.
    Read full review

    SAP

    • 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

        SAP

        - 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

        Microsoft

        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,

        The easy integration with other Microsoft software as well as high processing speed, very flexible cost, and high level of security of Microsoft Azure products and services stack up against other similar products.

        SAP

        One of the reasons to pick SAP Data Intelligence is the speed and security it provides, in addition to the excellent support it provides. It is also compatible with all popular databases, which is another reason to choose it.
