The best feature of IBM InfoSphere DataStage for me was that it was very much user-friendly. The solution didn't require that much raw coding because most of its features were drag and drop, plus it had a large number of functionalities.

The ETL tools are probably the most valuable feature. It has an IBM tool, a friendly UI and it makes things more comfortable.

DataStage works better with Linux operating systems when the application services are hosted on Linux system equipment, but it's powerful on Windows too.

It is very difficult to say how much the product costs because there are variables depending on the configuration. Normally it's priced according to use, so the price can vary quite a lot. The more you use, the more you pay. In comparison to other products, I would say it's not so expensive as Informatica, but it is intended to be an enterprise solution so it's not very cheap to deploy as products that are not enterprise solutions. The products we offer are really very different in pricing compared to open-source products. With open-source you have only the maintenance cost. For the software products we use, you have to invest in the software and then the maintenance costs are in addition to that. There are no other costs in addition to the standard licensing fee and the maintenance. With IBM, you typically pay for the licenses and the first 12 months of maintenance is included in that cost. Afterward, you pay for the maintenance year-to-year.

Hands down Informatica. I've used both. Informatica is system and DB agnostic and can run on any platform. If set up correctly like I do in my architecture moving from the platform (Windows) to Linux or AIX would take less than a day. Also, Informatica is highly parameterizable and easier to develop in. The shared objects ability is a huge time-saving advantage. Also, Informatica has built-in version controls.
