Datameer

Datameer is a great tool if someone is capable of keeping the most recent version of the tool up to date along with the most recent version of the distribution of Hadoop. The tool is easy to support but it must have someone who can run the back end processes

SolarWinds Task Factory

Speeds up ETL development - so good for small shops and not very expensive. Not required where there is a big team of programmers and resistance to using 3rd party products. Also, the fact that SolarWinds is dropping some related products makes me nervous and want to build my own products.

SolarWinds Task Factory

  • The single most beneficial component to Task Factory is the Upsert component. If you're familiar with writing MERGE statements in T-SQL, you'll appreciate the Upsert component. Drag the component into your Data Flow and a few clicks later you have a MERGE without the code complexities.
  • Where some native SSIS components leave you wanting more, Task Factory extends on many of these components as well as support for data sources not native to SSIS components.
  • The number of extra components that come in the Task Factory tool kit will expand your tool belt to do just about anything you need or want to accomplish in SSIS.

Cons

Datameer

  • Many tabs sometimes reduce your focus
  • Might be better to have a more compact design
  • Video tutorials are a little long

SolarWinds Task Factory

  • Need to improve the component usage documents. That helps to save a lot of time to understand the component behavior and usage.
  • Sometimes it is hard to troubleshoot a connector.
  • Connectors are not often released, it is quite difficult to update connectors.

Employees with intermediate SQL and Hive knowledge can generate reports faster than using Datameer . It does have visualization tool but I don't think it is anything that cannot be accomplished by importing the data in Excel

Task Factory has become a key product for our use of doing ETL work in SSIS. Their custom SSIS components allow us to work simply on the data engineering side of things. We can ignore the lower level work needed to connect to disparate data sources. This allows us to work faster and provide more value to the business

Overall it went smoothly. Had a couple of gotchas with licensing and upgrading but nothing that really stopped us.

Alternatives Considered

Datameer

Not sure how to compare Datameer with other products, it has a flavor of Excel and PowerPivot, it leverages D3.js and HTML5 for visualizations. The modeling capabilities are one of its strongest aspects. We've been looking at Tableau, Qlikview, Microstrategy, Cognos Insight, and SAP Lumira.

SolarWinds Task Factory

SolarWinds Task Factory perfectly coordinate with quality data tools, which maintains the integrity and security required. More so, SolarWinds Task Factory has a simplistic and operational transformation process, which is followed by a speedy loading power. The email notifications and content management from SolarWinds Task Factory have also made it competent enough for businesses.

Return on Investment

Datameer

  • Datameer definitely helped to increase employee efficiency, provide quick results for our data analytic teams.
  • Quick data injection and data partitions allowed quick data scans.
  • Integration with the Java sdk allowed us to reuse existing Java code.
Serge Blazhievsky | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Task Factory

  • We were able to support our developers with Task Factory features and reduce the development time by 40%.
  • Recently Task Factory has changed their pricing module and it seems to be pretty costly for our process. Our business team has started to evaluate whether this is worth it going forward.
