Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution scales well.""I like EDC's self-service capabilities. You can put the catalog on the intranet inside the organization, so users can search for something. People in the research world have specialized systems, and you might find data from various places that sound similar.""The metadata management of Informatica is great.""The capability of the tool to scan and capture the metadata from a variety of sources is one of the capabilities that I find most useful. The central repository into which it is going to put that captured metadata is the best.""Multifeatured and easily scalable data catalog, with good data domain discovery and data profiling features."

"This product provides good reports using a single pane of glass."

More SAP Analytics Hub Pros →

"The solution is quite expensive.""This solution is hard to set up and its interface is not user-friendly. It's also not as stable, and the technical support takes a lot of time to solve simple problems.""It is not easy to set up and configure the tool.""The model is somewhat flexible. There are certain aspects of the model that are not as flexible as we would like. It doesn't do certain things to a great level of depth. So, in situations where we want to drill in to do something specific, we have to essentially copy that data into our own structures in order to add that additional layer of flexibility.""Interoperability is one area where EDC has room for improvement. It was challenging when the faculty took over the data world and had specific vendors they wanted to use, and some were not particularly open platforms."
