Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Review

Heterogeneous technologies can be integrated with ODI, including the latest web services.


What is most valuable?

Heterogeneous technologies can be integrated with ODI, including the latest web services.

I feel that Oracle provides users with the best functionalities from ODI by constantly improving the functionalities in all areas.

How has it helped my organization?

Any IT company that relies on data coming from its clients or internal users requires data maintenance. All that collected data should be able to provide insight into the various behaviors of the clients across different platforms. For us, ODI has been key in collecting, transforming, and storing information from our various sources.

What needs improvement?

The two areas that I see for improvement would be the UI and the procedures for accessing it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using ODI for the last seven years starting with 10g. In my experience, Oracle has spent a lot of effort in improving the tool.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I never faced issues with the deployment since 11g. Oracle has made very good improvements in terms of the deployment. DBA objects take more time than the code deployment, which are the easiest and quickest ones. There is no room for errors when we have an environment in production.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no issues with the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There have been no issues scaling it.

How are customer service and technical support?

5/10 - Technical support needs to be improved.

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

I haven't used any other solutions since this product has the potential to provide a solution for any complex requirement.

How was the initial setup?

It's straightforward to set up.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it through a vendor.

What other advice do I have?

I definitely recommend using this for any data warehouse project.
