    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.

    SAS/Access is well suited for companies who need to manipulate and analyze large databases and data-sets. It does the same thing as SQL, and if you already know basic SAS coding it is easier to pick up. SAS/Access works well with analyzing data from multiple data-sources at once, including large databases stored in external and virtual environments like Hadoop. Data can be easily reassembled from relational databases for use by the user. SAS/Access is not necessary if you are only pulling data from one database that you have the physical file for.

    Pros

    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

    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

    SAS

    • Syntax for the connection string can be tricky
    • Specification of the data source driver can be tricky

        Usability

        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

        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

        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.

        Datastage might be the closest one. Being a full ETL tool, it's weird to compare both. Datastage might be more robust for extraction but it lacks the simplicity that the end users need for everyday data extract and analysis.
