"There is no toolkit better at any price"

August 30, 2009  |  By voipguy

 |  Version: DataSlave Professional 2.2

Pros

Excellent integration and operation. Powerful, flexible, and remarkably extensible. Great support as well

Cons

Not a single thing, been using it for years!

Summary

I have used this toolkit to build what has become the most powerful ETL tool anywhere. Used by many Fortune 100 clients of mine, DataSlave and it's staff never lets me down. There is simply nothing better for programmatic ETL at any price.

"Powerful product, with great support"

August 18, 2009  |  By IainMercer

 |  Version: DataSlave Professional 2.2

Pros

This is a very powerful product that can be put to many uses. The inbuilt functions for connectivity, data manipulation and validation make life much easier than if you were trying to do it from scratch.

Cons

The fact that the licensing require either internet connectivity or a dialogue with Baycastle can be a hassle, but only a small one.

"Powerful migration tool both configurable & extensable"

August 13, 2009  |  By RWEkstrand

 |  Version: DataSlave Professional 2.2

Pros

Allows non-programmers to configure data migration with validation and transforms

Cons

Have run into no serious problems.
We would like to have more control over parallel activities and execution.

Summary

I like that we can use builtin functionality and that we can extend it to work with proprietary data that we need to get at.

"So easy to use and a very refined product."

August 07, 2009  |  By sbranney

 |  Version: DataSlave Professional 2.2

Pros

Great ease of use and the drag and drop way you can pull complex data transformations together is excellent. With DataFlex data this did what other drivers failed to do. Great support too.

Cons

No cons I'm afraid!

Summary

This product dug us out of a major hole with a project to access DataFlex data and transform it reliably into SQL Server. We had this up and running in minutes and great service meant we had a license key very quickly. Whilst the interface takes a bit of learning, the online demo is a great idea and once up and running we could do things in DataSlave in moments that had taken a long time in SQL. I can't fault it and just wish I had more projects that I could use this product with!

August 05, 2009  |  By steve_shafer

Pros

The product uses object building blocks that provide the ability to customize data transfers to achieve my objectives. The objects make it easy to step through a conversion, analyzing the data at each step. Email support was excellent.
