Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Review

I just have to configure the knowledge module to perform data extractions from multiple sources. I think that job scheduling can be improved.


What is most valuable?

The ability to extract from multiple sources, the flexibility of using the Knowledge module, and the ergonomics of the GUI are the features I've found most valuable.

How has it helped my organization?

Before using ODI, I was forced to develop programs with multiple technologies (Java, Python) to extract data from multiple sources. Now with ODI, I just have to configure the knowledge module to perform the extraction.

What needs improvement?

I think that job scheduling can be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for four years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We've had no deployment issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I think that ODI 11g is very stable. I've had no issues with instability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We've had no issues scaling it for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never contacted customer service or technical support of Oracle for this product. If I have a problem, I try to find a solution from the Oracle community.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've used Microsoft, but I think that ODI is simpler to use and offers more flexibility.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was a little complex because the architecture of the product was blurred, so I needed some weeks to understand it.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented with our in-house team. You should try to have good documentation before using this product.

What other advice do I have?

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

This is great thanks for posting. Have you completed this in ODI12c? It would be interesting to see how the approach changes because of the differences in the versions.
