    SAP Data Services is a great tool for managing and mapping big data with easy setup and integration processes. The metadata administration provided by the SAP DS is also very effective and saves a lot for the organizations which deal with heavy data management issues. Recommended for the companies and businesses looking for a reliable data services tool.

    Advance Editor implementation for rules, validation of data is very easy. Consolidation, Integration and Metadata Auditing is very good. Metrics Dashboard and Scorecards for viewing the data is very very good and also the quality improvement can be made looking at the dashboard. SAP Info Steward is very helpful for Data Migration Project comprising Big Datas for Manufacturing organisation with very much easy field level updates whether they are of SAP standard or not. Especially when migration, the need for SAP standard data is must and it can be easily done using this tool.

    Cons

    SAP Data Services

    • Debugging is not very easy. When one wants to see the flow of data from one Query to another, the process is not very smooth and efficient.
    • A lot of functions do not behave the way they should. I have faced problems with the count() function.
    • I have faced problems while loading Excel files. The same set of options will work in one case but not in the other.

    SAP Information Steward

    • More real-time integration scenarios needed.
    • Needs more generic standard content for metadata management.
    • The user interface can be more intuitive based on AI.

    As other SAP products, there is excellent support by SAP on this tool. You can access the SAP Help portal in order to give support either from the huge community or directly from SAP.

    I believe many features from SAP Information Steward are available in other SAP products as well hence it is more confusing for business or customers to do the right selection. Moreover SAP strategy is not very clear for this particular product hence often we are confused while exploring more related scenarios

    SAP Information Steward

    In the case of this organization, Information Steward was part of a suite from SAP together with Data Services and SAP Master Data Governance. In terms of the overall package it was worth it for the company. Informatica cost was higher and the overall benefit from SAP package was the key decision point.
