Hello,

Thanks for the help with our questions. We are now
benchmarking data integration solutions, with most of the
tools interesting for our business.

We have been checking open source solutions and wonder which
of the proprietary or open source software could be best for
us. Knowing that our company is getting larger with a more
important client base.

Thanks.

Hi Kim,

things really depend on what you want to do exactly. "Data integration"
leaves a very wide field of options. You may want to explain a little
bit more about what you want to do.

For starters you can look at SQL Anywhere
http://www.sybase.com/products/databasemanagement/sqlanywhere
This is a very versatile database that runs on almost any kind of OS and
also provides very good data synchronization and integration capabilities.


Cheers,
Dirk

There are advantages to using open source software. The
program code is accessible to the software users. The
program is usually free and directly downloadable from the
company's website.

Most companies have forums to help you on problems, issues
and support and maintenance can be given by the companies.

Look at programs such as Talend Open Studio for your data
integration needs. It is an open source program.

Hi guys,

as this is a forum of a data base software vendor, I definitely need to
comment. :-)

It really depends on what you are looking for. There are advantages to
both sides of the world. I recommend to look at your needs and include
the soft- and hard facts in your perception.

Feature wise our data base offering and other products do provide a lot
of neat things no other product can supply. As we do business with many
large enterprise customers and governments we also have a support and
R&D organisation to back this up. Naturally this comes to a price.

But then, think about what happens if your system is down due to any
kind of issue. How long can you afford to have this system down without
hurting your business? Sybase offers 24/7 support contracts where you
can reach out to for help. BTW this forum is not part of our support system.

And look at the resources you need to run the system. Is it wise to have
a business critical system administered only by a single person that is
totally over worked because of his unique open source skills? What
happens if he is sick or leaves the company? Many customers I know have
4 people to run a system => 2 active Administrators and 2 backup guys
that handle the system only once in a while. Do you have 4 people that
are well versed with your target open source software? If not, what is
the effort to train them? Sybase offers good product trainigs as well. :-)

Many of the big companies have put together check lists for their
decision process. This includes the availability of support, product
maintenance and risk assessment PLUS the actual software features you
require.

That is the reason why I asked you to provide some more information on
your needs. Without understanding your needs any kind of discussion
seems mute, doesn't it? :-)
