Overall Satisfaction with IBM InfoSphere DataStage

In our company, IBM InfoSphere DataStage is the main ETL engine used by the data integration functions. It guarantees the integration of most of the company's analytical processes. The reliability and capillarity that has shown make it an essential tool for our needs.
  • reliability
  • capillarity
  • complexity
  • adaptability
  • complex to integrate and adapt
  • reliable and safe for traditional flows
We chose IBM InfoSphere DataStage because it is the tool that has been used, historically, at the company level. In the near future, nothing prevents us from orienting ourselves to new solutions in view of a restructuring of architecture.
I believe that IBM generally has one of the worst and most complex assistance systems (physical and online) that exists.

Yes

Did implementation of IBM InfoSphere DataStage go as expected?

No

Would you buy IBM InfoSphere DataStage again?

I believe that for the classic vision of integration, IBM InfoSphere DataStage is a reliable tool. It certainly cannot meet the latest requirements and does not guarantee the speed and versatility of the new data management systems.
