What is DataStage?
The Datastage is an ETL tool and it’s a component of the IBM information Platforms Solution suite and the InfoSphere. Thus called as IBM InfoSphere DataStage. DataStage is available in various versions such as Server Edition, Enterprise Edition and MVS Edition where it uses a graphical data to build information and integrate the same. DataStage is designed such that it works with a large amount of data as it can store, integrate and transform the large volumes of data with different data structures. It thus supports Big data and Hadoop as it allows access to Big data directly on distributed networks. It also optimizes hardware utilization and prioritizes important tasks.
DataStage was born at VMark company, which has developed two major products: DataStage ETL tool and the UniVerse database. Peter Weyman, the VMark VP appointed Lee Scheffler as an architect and gave product brand name “Stage”. This tag was later used to name DataStage and also for related products as QualityStage, MetaStage, ProfileStage, and AuditStage. Then Lee Scheffler presented the product to Board of VMark in June 1996 and got approved. The product after alpha and beta testing was made generally available in January 1997.
