"IBM infosphere is AWESOME"

What do you like best?

I love IBM Infosphere info Governance catalog because it surpasses other similar products i have tried in the past. It is extremely user friendly and seamlessly fits in with our other technologies and offers much better results than we could have expected with other similar products. Most IBM products we use now are way more adaptable and offer better results, and this one is one of the best products out there.

What do you dislike?

We have not had it for over 6 months, so I can say that we have not had anything about it that we do not dislike yet, and I do not forsee any problems coming up in the future. I have reccommended this to multiple colleagues and all of our workers eem to love it also.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend researching and reading about IBM InfoSphere and see if it is right for your business and if it solves a need for you. I also recommend a trial period and reading reviews. Just educate yourself. I highly recommend it. I also recommend using along with other IBM products and I have always highly recommended them and they are products that really offer you protection.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving problems that are now solved faster with Info Sphere and more efficiently. We have seen amazing results and love this so far.

"IBM InfoSphere IGC"

What do you like best?

Data Cataloging , Protection and privacy, Business flow diagrams, ETL Processing etc

What do you dislike?

Logging mechanism needs to be improved. Connectivity Packs such as Pack for SAP Application are a little pricey. It is confusing for new developers the possibility of developing jobs using different execution engines such as Parallel or Server.

"I have had an overall positive experience with utilizing BM InfoSphere Information Governance. "

What do you like best?

I like that IBM InfoSphere is a reliable and useful tool that gives you the ability to understand and analyze your information. IBM InfoSphere utilizes common language that fully allows you to understand terms and vocabulary being analyzed.

What do you dislike?

IBM InfoSpherecan be rather difficult for new users or for those who do not have high technology knowledge.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problem that is being solved by using IBM InfoSphere is that our data is able to be analyzed and can be understood by those using the program through IBM’s common vocabulary terms and different ways to display flow of data. The benefits are that you can learn new vocabulary and common information and can also see different flows of the data.

"Using IGC to build our Business Metadata Glossary"

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility and ui custom field creation capabilities. Additionaaly, the API functionality allows the export and import of information to various other tools and databases. I also am very pleased with the functionality of the technical lineage import and visual lineage renedering.

What do you dislike?

Among some various little annoyances, one of my biggest complaints is the lack of a taxonmomy structure around the Rules in IGC. A hierarchy can be established for terms, catagories, and policies, but not rules. Also therefore, access to the rules is either on for all rules, or off for all rules.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The need for a Business Metadata Glossary of terms linked to the lineage behind those terms.

"IBM InfoShere Review"

IBM has provided a broad range of subject matter and technical expertise. It works at different levels and areas of the organization. It also works with other data platforms. Problems are quickly fixed or they will work hard to find a work-around solution.

IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog needs to focus more on our user experience. The platform needs to be more user friendly. The other issue is that there are too many components. Some people in my office have a difficult time understanding.

I would recommend IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog to other businesses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
