"Great for data validation"

What do you like best?

The built-in reports can be used quickly to identify and issues in the data, in any data processing environment. It is particularly useful during ETL or data validation before building any statistical models. Typically a lot of time is spend on generating summary statistics and identifying problems with the data, which IB Omni-Gen is able to quickly generate.

What do you dislike?

The processing speed can be slightly slower for extremely large amounts of data (i.e. web log data). The data connectors did not support everything we were looking for. The Data Integration module had a very retro look to it from the 90s.

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

We did a POC with Omni-Gen, to be used as a tool to pre-scan data for issues before loading data files to the cloud. It saved a lot of time for the teams, saving them from hours of coding to get what Omni-Gen was able to show. The graphic representation of the data was

"Omni-Gen (Data Quality Suite) Review"

What do you like best?

I do like the GUI interface. I have worked in both the Integration side and the Data Quality side, with most of my training/work on the Data Quality side. I do like the interface , the tools are pretty straight forward and easy to use and figure out. Also, i do enjoy the support staff. I have forged a good relationship with many like Walter Zublionis, Lou Deturris, Jeff Paoletti and Craig Sanders. They have been very attentive to my needs, and make any issues with documentation less painful.

What do you dislike?

Documentation. Many times we are required to do something beyond the basic scope of the tool. Documentation can many times be hard to come by, or difficult to understand.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be very detailed in what your requirements are, and if you know the intricacies of what you'll need , analyze them as early as possible. Any possible hurtles can be cleared up early in the process and will make it a lot smoother down the line.

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

Our business typically used to take a reactive approach where we correct problems/inconsistencies with our data, after the fact. But now our business is changing to be more proactive, and to correct problems upon entry. This has reduced many data inconsistencies and work from end users on the backend to have to cleanup the data.

What Master Data Management (MDM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Simple mapping from data model to usage"

What do you like best?

Simple to use and understand by both developers and business users.

What do you dislike?

Graphical coding when getting iWay to do what I want isn't obvious is frustrating (my experience is with 7, though).

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

DMP would be used to assist in validating and cleansing data from multiple sources, particularly imports of existing customer bases purchased by the company. Currently, ISM is used to support business control flows triggered by data availability and a forwarding and simplifying resource for web services (isolating our database server from the web).

"Solid and reliable"

What do you like best?

Regarding our MDM, I like the peace of mind that comes with knowing that when we cleanse massive amounts of data, it's safe and secure, as well as complete. The data management platform is a fantastic foundation.

What do you dislike?

Cloud installation solutions are traditionally a problem for me. I have to rely heavily on cloud as local isn't an option. When getting deep into cleansing towards the end of the day, uploading can show way down. Obviously this mainly falls on our network, but I feel the packet distribution on the software side could be better.

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

Scattered, incorrect and mismatched data. The data platform has helped up consolidate our records and give us a single source of truth.

I'm loving how iWay is able to perform all the "magic" necessary in ETL in a stable environment. I'm excited about the new version 8 interface and looking forward to all the new featured as highlighted by Inessa during a TechTalk with her.

The dislikes were in the user interface, but looks like the new 8 addresses some of those.
