"Great ETL tool "

What do you like best?

Data services is a great ETL tool that has native connectivity with SAP and allows you to configure rules and logic into data extraction and ingestion processes.

The ability to write scripts to handle complex joins and also the vast variety of source and target data marts available makes data services a good choice. If designed correctly, data services robustness can allow jobs to run for a long time without having to continuously tweak them.

What do you dislike?

Older UI. Certainly needs an overhaul to the UI

There are other newer tools available in the market today that are competing in the same market, so I hope data services does bring a complete overhaul to the UI.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Data services in my opinion is the most comprehensive ETL or ELT tool, specially if you have SAP in your landscape. Data service also happens to be extremely robust and does perform very well in complex landscapes.

There are newer tools available in the market today that allows for connectivity to newer system or has support for different languages, which probably DS does not have. Would recommend to wisely consider what your current use case is and what potential use cases could be.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data extraction, including ingestion and extraction. The benefits are certainly the robustness and the native connectors to different types of data sources. We also use DS to extract data into flat files which are then hosted to an FTP location and then sent over to external systems.

Data quality is a use case that could be evaluated but that is being done outside the system

"The most powerful integration tool"

What do you like best?

I like the way tool has been structured, the infrastructure, and integration capabilities.

The most important one is the transformation capabilities with efficiency.

The graphical interface is once of the best features once can have for transformation activities.

The object hierarchy i.e. workflow, data flow and then transformation objects brings in a lot of flexibility and parallel processing.

an expert designer on this tool can build some of the wonderful transformations possible.

What do you dislike?

The designer is little bit heavy to use. crashes some times when you perform some heavy design changes / load etc.

The job scheduler is too lousy and not at all intuitive.

Need some more improvement on collaborative development when more than one developers work in this.

Shared repositories need more flexibility.

Source code control and integration with such tools is must.

though the current object library is sufficient to complete all kind of transformations, it would be nice to have some more objects which provides commonly used operations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have personally used other couple of similar tools in the market. and can confidently say this is the best one you can have for your integration needs. very easy to use, powerful and can easily get skilled resources in market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we do a lot of integration and transformations using this tool. transforming data from all hybrid systems to ware house, reporting databases etc.

Data Transformation is one of the key activity of any large enterprise when it comes to integration.

we have almost 90% of the system integrated using this tool.

"Good, but takes some training"

What do you like best?

Fairly easy to learn, nothing to download, all browser based.

What do you dislike?

SAP has limited functionality with some browsers and operating systems. It's got a Java- based GUI, so it no longer works in Chrome. Also, it seems to not work well on Macs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take some training classes to help you learn how to use it correctly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for the myUK system for record keeping. This provides access to student and employee records. Academic advising is also done with this system.

"The address suggestion webservice is not great"

What do you like best?

The address match with the existing customers turned out to be good after many iterations of tunings.

What do you dislike?

It was failing the basic address validation that returns with the address suggestions. We had abondoned the service in some of our web pages and started using the google maps API for a very much nominal price.

THe common thing is the PRICING. I always feel SAP pricing is outrageous compared to other recent new technologies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Address cleansing.

"Simple and Easy to Learn Data Management"

What do you like best?

It is basic but very straight-forward and easy to read/follow.

What do you dislike?

The layout of the system is very basic, almost TOO basic.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One thing that I've learned abundantly in both my professional and personal life, is that in this tech-based era, the quality and availability of customer care is critical. SAP is excellent on this term.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"SAP REVIEW"

What do you like best?

The ease of being able to pull up purchase orders, BOMS, requisitions very quickly. I also use a SAP based Spec system called PLM which is incredibly helpful for approving multiple specs at the same time.

What do you dislike?

There are various icons within SAP that aren't always easily understood. It would ne great to have the ability to hover over the icon and get a more in depth description of what each icon allows us to do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to approve specs very quickly and can do a side by side comparison of specs that are changing to quickly approve them and enable quicker and accurate material ordering.
