Cons Of Implementer Software
Implementers’ ability to deploy SQL tables/indices with referential integrity.
Implementers’ ability for a deployment solution has been called a “major pain.” According to reviews, deployments rarely complete & go smoothly.
The error messages don’t explain the problem well. A good workaround has been to remove all the constraints before deployment & add them back post-deployment.
Feature toggle functionality is hindered by configuration deployment taking longer than expected, containerization being difficult, and any changes to properties file requiring a restart.
There’s a large learning curve depending on your ILE modules experience
Some functionality eats all the resources on the host machine. Sometimes it shows poor performance on the host machine.
Having to create a request for each target environment has been called a “pain” by customers
Some customers ask for better support for large deployments where objects are deployed from/to multiple environments
Customers sometime encounter failure with requests
The green screen interface is the only administration option
Any changes to the properties file require a restart, which causes a lot of problems during feature toggle functionalities.
Not all SQL objects are handled by Implementer
As a customer recommendation, a web-based UI for configuring/managing Implementer would be nice.
