IBM InfoSphere DataStage

It is well suited if your data is quite complex and many data rules are in place. You have to write real complex data joins to generate output. While DataStage can handle it and provide you an intuitive design for support and analysis.

Because it is robust, and it is being continuously improved.DS is one of the most used and recognized tools in the market. Large companies have implemented it in the first instance to develop their DW, but finding the advantages it has, they could use it for other types of projects such as migrations, application feeding, etc.

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.
