  • Integrability with different data sources. The provision of native connectors is complete and there is the possibility of implementing new ones.
  • Flexibility in power sources, thanks to the connectors with the main DB and the integration of all types of formats (XML, CSV, JSON, etc.)
  • End-to-end process with the SAS suite. Products such as SAS Visual Analytics allows the visualization of the data produced, or Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning which allows you to perform advanced analysis.
  • It is a versatile product but sometimes difficult to use due to the very close link with the proprietary programming language where specific knowledge is required.
  • Compared to competitors on the market that offer the same functions for the integration perimeter, it is certainly very expensive.
  • It is very simple to use when combined with products from the SAS suite, less so it is being used stand-alone or integrated with other well-known brands.

  • Easy to use even for non-technical people
  • Connects to a variety of data sources
  • Statistical transformations available as part of the module
  • Graphical drag & drop interface
  • Requires third-party drivers to connect to common data sources like SFDC, MS SQL, Postgres.
  • Debugging errors from the logs is a complicated process.
  • E-mail alert system is very primitive and needs customization to make it more modern,
  • Cannot send SMS alerts for jobs.

  • It works very fast and is highly scalable.
  • It hangs a lot, that means that while loading huge data it sometimes slows down.
  • No modelling options available in the tool.

  • With SAS Data Integration Studio it doesn't matter to users where the data is originally from it all is presented in a consistent manner.
  • The SAS Data Integration Studio is fairly reliable it usually works well.
  • The visual design of reports our users even describe as fun.
  • Sometimes parts of the data are not available, although this is generally because it is connected to so many different systems.
  • Price, it's not the cheapest software, however the value for dollars spent does seem to be good.
  • Sometimes all the different systems and platforms and folders and so forth get a bit overwhelming for new users.

  • SAS supports the main database connection options that allow you to optimize the performance of your extracts and loads.
  • Simplicity of the syntax for a basic connection.
  • Ability to configure by an administrator in a BI environment so that all users can benefit from the connection without having to establish it by themselves.
  • Easier management in the administration platform. Connecting these can be a challenge.

Access Your Data

  • SAS/Access is great for manipulating large and complex databases.
  • SAS/Access makes it easy to format reports and graphics from your data.
  • Data Management and data storage using the Hadoop environment in SAS/Access allows for rapid analysis and simple programming language for all your data needs.
  • SAS/Access coding is not as simple as SQL query language. SAS/Access requires the user to have prior knowledge of SAS coding and data-set manipulation.
  • SAS/Access support is not as good as Base SAS support, there is not much help if you want to do a specific format or data merge with your datasets.
  • SAS/Access is a bit expensive compared to SQL, but if you already have Base SAS it is not as expensive.

  • dfPower Studio connects to virtually any data source, and any dfPower Studio user in any department can use dfPower Studio to profile, cleanse, integrate, enrich, monitor, and otherwise improve data quality throughout the enterprise. dfPower Architect, an innovative job flow builder, enables users to build complex management workflows quickly and logically.
  • DataFlux Integration Server supports the ability to run batch dfPower Studio jobs in a client/server environment.
  • DataFlux Integration Server for SAS additionally enables allows SAS programs to invoke DataFlux batch jobs from a SAS program and allows SAS programs to call a business service that was designed in the dfPower Studio client environment.
  • DataFlux handled all of our data integration needs. It could be considered pricey when compared to Microsoft's bundled SSIS product.
