CloverDX

CloverDX designer as a standalone is well suited for fairly straightforward transformations of data. If you want to do large scale data integrations, then their server edition adds an extra level of automation and job control.

Information Server is extremely useful to replace manual developments that require a lot of coding effort. It significantly increases the productivity of the initial development and the future maintenance of the processes since it has a visual development environment with self-documentation.

Cons

CloverDX

  • The initial learning curve is a little steep. Not very steep or super steep, just a little steep.
  • Having enough memory for large multi-step problems can be an issue if the graph isn't designed well.
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

InfoSphere

  • I would be nice to have a new web development environment for DataStage.
  • Connectivity Packs such as Pack for SAP Application are a little pricey.
  • It is confusing for new developers the possibility of developing jobs using different execution engines such as Parallel or Server.

Information does load quick, but it depends on what's being done, the backend database seems to be the biggest bottleneck

While CloverDX has an active forum for users to submit questions and assist with answers, their in house support team is incredibly responsive when I've contacted them for assistance. This seems almost at odds with most other software companies who try to save money on tech support by promoting a forum or knowledge base.

Alternatives Considered

CloverDX

CloverDX was a less expensive alternative to Talend and had a more intuitive interface from what I could see during the evaluation.
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

InfoSphere

DataStage is more robust and stable than ODIThe ability to perform complex transformations or implement business rules is much more developed in DS

Return on Investment

CloverDX

  • Work that use to take multiple people 20 to 30 hours a week to complete each has now been fully automated to where only 1 or 2 hours a week for maintenance is required.
Michael Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

InfoSphere

  • If you don't use all of the product family, it will be expensive. But if you want to plan use all the products and you will position it in the center of your infrastructure ROI will be effective.
