"IA has great promise"

What do you like best?

The integration with the rest of the InfoSphere suite like IGC and Data Stage. Information analyzer moves the data quality responsibility closer to the data owners. It gives indviduals with not a lot of technical background the ability to take control of their data quality.

What do you dislike?

Not all the functionality has been ported to the thin client. The thick client is very bulky and cumbersome. It is not very intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

IA's true diffrentiator is it's ties to the rest of the InfoSphere suite. If you are already a data stage quality stage customer this is a no brainer. If you are considering or own Information Governace Catalog it does not make sense to evaluate another product. Once your company has the technical accumen to support the back end or you go to a cloud implentation, you business will fine IA invaluable.

Data quality of file transmissions to customers. Data quality of critical CCAR data elements
