Product Reviews
BA&T SAP DATA INTEGRATOR (DI) CORES is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from ETL and third-party data integration are great features, but inadequate data analysis and data profiling has increased testing and user-acceptance duration. Valuable Features:ETL is very useful. We use Data Services not only with data warehouse development but also integration with other 3rd parties and external data.Improvements to My Organization:We have integration with 30 different systems now. Business users manual data-entry load has decreased, and data between different systems are consistent in almost-real time.We can develop time-based, visualized analyses with our BI platform, and four years ago, business users had to prepare their complex records in Excel every time they needed data reports. Now they only need to refresh reports. On the other hand, business users were only able to query data four years ago, but now their visions are changing and they are now performing data mining and forecast analyses.Room for Improvement:Data mining and more visualized reports are the next steps.Deployment Issues:We had to deal with data quality problems.Stability Issues:It has inadequate data analysis and data profiling, which has increased testing and user acceptance duration.BO Web Intelligence, v4.0 is more unstable than XI v3.x. We’ll upgrade to v4.1 in Q3.Previous Solutions:No, we did not.Initial Setup:Setup was straightforward, but the customization and implementation process was complex.Implementation Team:We started with a vendor-partner, but now we have in-house team and still get consultancy advice from the partner.Other Solutions Considered:* Cognos* Microsoft SSIS* SSRSOther Advice:First, perform an analysis of your business users' requirements.The data quality and your data warehouse models are the most important parts of a BI project. Design the model from both business requirements and source data. Make sure you involve business users from the beginning and explain the advantages of business intelligence to the data life-cycle well. Assign a short and attractive name to the web site and/or tool that users can remember easily and will like.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's certainly competitive with similar products, although one could argue that there are better products on the market. Valuable Features:The graphical user interface and powerful SQL generation capabilities make the coding of ETL flows very easy and efficient. The ability to easily run processes in parallel or sequentially is also very valuable. Overall the ease of use is Data Services key benefit.Room for Improvement:While Data Services performs very well when dealing with relational structures and to a lesser degree with delimited files, there is significant room from improvement with the integration with web services and related data formats (XML, JSON, etc.). We have had to code our own ETL processes in Python or Java to extract data from all but the simplest web services.Use of Solution:Three years.Other Advice:If you have a need to access non-relational data sources, review the tool’s capabilities for your specific use cases very carefully.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
