Data Services & Federator & Integrator

Let me start with a rant....SAP BO should really clean up their EIM product line. As a potencial client trying to make head and tails of the various software components, let me tell you this is quite messy. In the site its hard to understand the diference between Data Services and Data Integrator for one.

Now that I got that out of my chest (sorry for that), please make one thing clear to me. I have seen the following componentes:

- Data Services

- Data Integrator

- Data Federator

Are the Data Integrator and Data Federator included in the Data Services? If I install Data Services, do I get access to both functionalities, or are they installed separatly?

Thanks.

    The product used to be called Data Integrator. When the Data Quality module was baked into it, in a recent major release, the product was renamed Data Services. Confusingly, Sales reps sometimes still distinguish between Data Integrator and Data Services, considering the latter to be the product that includes DI + DQ.

    Generally DS = DI ... But sometimes in conversation, DS = DI + DQ

    Data Federator is, not surprisingly,a data federation project, completely separate from ETL tools. DI/DS can access Federator (as can BO Enterprise Universes.)

    Data Integrator is part of the Data-Services.

    Data Federation is a seperate Tool.
