    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.

    • The speed of migration is very good for a Free ETL tool.

    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

    Talend

    • Syncing with Git should be made easier
    • Can face issues with certain big data spaces
    • Support find it difficult to resolve complex issues

        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

        We use Talend Data Integration day in and day out. It is the best and easiest tool to jump on to and use. We can build a basic integration super-fast. We could build basic integrations as fast as within the hour. It is also easy to build transformations and use Java to perform some operations.

        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,

        Good support, specially when it relates to PROD environment. The support team has access to the product development team. Things are internally escalated to development team if there is a bug encountered. This helps the customer to get quick fix or patch designed for problem exceptions. I have also seen support showing their willingness to help develop custom connector for a newly available cloud based big data solution

        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.

        Talend is much versatile in assimilating various different business use cases. It covers more functionality and is packed with tons of features to explore. It has the ability to fine tune to each project, and not be a one-fits all solution. Problems with Excel, is that it is not suited for large projects, collaboration work. Alteryx is a very costly alternative.

        • Easy to build complex data transformations.
        • Licensing model isn't that flexible.
        • Memory mangement for huge volumes of information. You have to modify ETL designs to handle it properly.
