"It is quite useful and powerful."
"It's a robust solution."
"The Hierarchical Data Stage is good."
"Offers great flexibility."
"As a data integration platform, it is easy to use. It is quite robust and useful for volumetric analysis when you have huge volumes of data. We have tested it for up to ten million rows, and it is robust enough to process ten million rows internally with its parallel processing. Its error logging mechanism is far simpler and easier to understand than other data integration tools. The newer version of InfoSphere has the data catalog and IDC lineage. They are helpful in the easy traceability of columns and tables."
"We are mostly using transmission rules. It has a lot of functions and logic related to transmission. It is a user-friendly tool with in-built functions."
"Once you have Infosphere up and running properly, it is stable."
"The most valuable feature is the data integration for data warehousing."
"The integration with different technologies is the most valuable feature."
"It would be useful to provide support for Python, AR, and Java."
"The interface needs improvement."
"The response time from support is slow and needs to be improved."
"It doesn't have any big data connections. It would be good to have them because most of the systems are moving towards big data. There should also be a user-friendly way to interact with the cloud. Its loading process is very slow. It takes a lot of time for around 5 or 6 million records, and we are not able to provide real-time data to the vendors due to this delay. Its performance needs to be improved. It is also like a legacy system. It is not updated much. In higher versions, they only do small changes. We would like to have new features and new technologies."
"The initial setup could be more straightforward."
"The pricing should be lower."
"Currently lacking virtualization ability."
"The setup is extremely difficult."
"Their technical support needs improvement."
