Multicloud, AI-powered data integration

IBM® DataStage® is an industry-leading data integration tool that helps you design, develop and run jobs that move and transform data. At its core, the DataStage tool supports extract, transform and load (ETL) and extract, load and transform (ELT) patterns. A basic version of the software is available for on-premises deployment, but to reduce data integration time and costs, upgrade to DataStage for IBM Cloud Pak® for Data and experience powerful automated integration capabilities in a hybrid or multicloud environment.

What is DataStage for IBM Cloud Pak for Data?

IBM Cloud Pak for Data is a cloud-native insight platform built on the Red Hat® OpenShift® container orchestration platform. It integrates the tools needed to collect, organize and analyze data within a data fabric architecture. It dynamically and intelligently orchestrates data across a distributed landscape, to create a network of instantly available information for data consumers. IBM Cloud Pak for Data can be deployed on-premises, as a service on IBM Cloud® or on any vendor’s cloud.

DataStage is available as an add-on to an IBM Cloud Pak for Data software license or as a service through IBM Cloud Pak for Data as a Service.
