Apache Kafka Questions

Solution Architect at a tech vendor with 10,001+ employees

I am currently working as a solution architect for a tech vendor with 10,000+ employees. 

I need to perform a comparative analysis for ETL tools available to populate data from OLTP to OLAP.

The main criteria I am considering are:

  • Price
  • Functionality (transformation, error logging and handling, loading patterns to be supported)
  • Development and maintenance efforts
  • Popularity in market.

I want to evaluate both Oracle and Open Source options. I am also open to both tools (ODI, Golden Gate, etc) and technology- e.g. Oracle Materialized view.

Thanks! I appreciate your help.
