We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's easy to understand and deploy. It's easy to create new applications, and depending on the complexity of the application, it is easy to deploy the new requirements.""Data Services' table comparison mechanism is very powerful. It's pretty hard to find a similar feature in other solutions.""The BA reporting tools, such as Data Services, and ETL tool in SAP Data Services are the most valuable. When we had in-memory requirements, we used HANA. HANA is most preferably for most the customers for in-memory. SAP is the first company that created the in-memory concept.""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.""We can extract data at a table level, extract data at the ETL level, and we can extract data at an ODP level.""The most valuable feature is the ETL functionality.""I appreciate having access to the SAP data.""The API tool in this product is very valuable; it is very easy to onboard and use."

"Spotfire is excellent for scientific applications, especially because of its integration with RNG.""This solution allows us to integrate data from across all client departments, for effective reporting via a single dashboard.""It's scalable.""From a scalability standpoint, I would say it's pretty fantastic.""The two features that I have found most valuable are its ability to customize the dashboards when it comes to the evaluation. The second feature is its ability to handle a large amount of data, which is also something very unique about it.""The ability to create a real-time data mark, using just one piece of software, is the best feature of this product.""It’s stable and straightforward.""The out-of-the-box features are simple and easy to use across the board."

Cons
"Source code control is another headache. When your source code base gets too large, managing the source code becomes cumbersome.""The migration of the solution between different environments is quite complex.""They could make it easier to work with web services.""Some of the jobs that are built within Data Services require local files, and during initial deployment, those local files cannot be transported between machines simply because of security issues.""The skillset of data engineers matters a bit to use all the functionality of this solution. Otherwise, the delivery speed won't be faster.""At the integration level, there could be certain set of improvement to connect to various other systems.""It would be nice if this solution was a bit easier to move from development to production.""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."

More SAP Data Services Cons →

"The handling and consumption of realtime data could be improved.""When you do the data loading, it is slow.""I would like to see the visualization library in this solution expanded, so that I can increase what I can offer to our clients.""We would like to see some improvement in the default properties of the solution, so that there is less need for us to spend our time coding.""The initial setup can be difficult.""The design of the UI could be improved.""The initial setup of TIBCO Spotfire is in the middle range of difficulty. The initial setup of Power BI is easier.""When it comes to data manipulation, there are features which are good, but one of the features which has really been missing in Spotfire is an offline ability for data manipulation."
