Pros
"I like how SAP Data Services links reporting and data integration. That's what's most interesting. You also have the opportunity to leverage the power of the Data Services server.""We can extract data at a table level, extract data at the ETL level, and we can extract data at an ODP level.""Data Services' table comparison mechanism is very powerful. It's pretty hard to find a similar feature in other solutions.""Its integration capabilities and the data migration capabilities are the most valuable. It is very good for SAP and non-SAP tools. It has very good integration with SAP, but it also has the capabilities to connect to other systems. We find it very helpful and stable.""The basic functionality is quite good as is the basic logic and data information.""You can always manipulate a lot of things as long as you have the skill level.""The most valuable feature is the ETL functionality.""I appreciate having access to the SAP data."

"The solution offers very good documentation and manuals to assist with understanding the solution.""The solution provides very good and central logging systems. It offers high flexibility with vertical and horizontal extend capacity.""The initial setup was straightforward.""The solution is stable.""SAP Process Orchestration is middleware where we are able to manage and interact with everything from a single location. One of the most beneficial areas is monitoring which is very easy because it is all in one place. There are many adapters added recently that can be used for new functionality. The solution is easy to operate and it is more mature than the cloud solution provided by SAP.""The most valuable features of SAP Process Orchestration are the standard APIs that we can use.""SAP Process Orchestration has all the features that are necessary.""The solution is easy to use."

Cons
"It's an ETL that is very good with relational databases but not as good with files and semi-structured files.""Data Services SAP is lacking in sources and target databases compared to Informatica. SAP Data Services should have more connectivity.""At the integration level, there could be certain set of improvement to connect to various other systems.""They could make it easier to work with web services.""I want some more business intelligence applications. People need to know more and more about data, including the transformation rules, etc. Informatica is a better product for data cataloging. SAP should update the data catalog.""The skillset of data engineers matters a bit to use all the functionality of this solution. Otherwise, the delivery speed won't be faster.""It would be nice if this solution was a bit easier to move from development to production.""The migration of the solution between different environments is quite complex."

More SAP Data Services Cons →

"The cloud capability features need improvement.""The solution could improve by making it more user-friendly by limiting the code required. We have to add some code in some cases where we need complex logic or some other functions. If this was able to be done in a more simplified manner then it would save a lot of effort and time.""I think the main area that SAP PO should improve on is offering pre-delivered content like they do when you use SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI). SAP should not forget that they still have a lot of customers using Process Orchestration and they should focus more on providing pre-delivered content in SAP PO.""The usability is an area where it can be improved upon.""It's very difficult to find errors in a simple way.""I feel that support is an area that needs improvement. They need to improve the response time and address the customer's issues as soon as possible.""SAP Process Orchestration could improve from an API standpoint. This is not an API management tool, which is one of its drawbacks. However, SAP has released an SAP Cloud Platform Integration which has all of the features, such as API management along with process integration to replace what they had previously.""The solution could be more scalable."
