Most Helpful Review
Besides loading data, we do most of our transformations in it. However, the stability of the software could be improved.
Find out what your peers are saying about Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) vs. Oracle GoldenGate and other solutions. Updated: July 2019.
353,599 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature that we use is the Knowledge Modules.
It's completely user-friendly.
All our systems can be widely integrated by ODI, such as transactional systems, our data warehouses, and B2B integration.
It has the ability to easily load slowly changing dimensions.
The installation of the client ODI Studio is easy.
Besides loading data, we do most of our transformations in ODI.
In our DW/BI solution, ODI is the main tool to integrate the data in a daily batch way.
Most of the functions are very straightforward, like the data model, mapping, package, and load plan. Thus, a new user could get started very fast.
This solution provides us with real-time replication and it does not affect the performance of other operations, which is very important to us.
This solution has a well-known procedure for troubleshooting and tuning the performance, providing for smooth operation.
You can put data together from a few databases into one database or the other way, from one database into several. It transforms data in real-time.
It allows us to migrate from one system to another, from one server to another, with no downtime, no outage. We can get the data synchronized with multiple databases and then switch the connectivity across to the new servers.
It's very simple to configure, it's very simple to implement. In addition, the ability it has to capture data and transmit it with incredible speed is better than any of the product out there. It's extremely powerful.
It scales well. You can either have it working in with the databases, or you can move it outside. It's got the ability to parallelize up, so you can certainly extract and replay the data from your databases in parallel. So it does have horizontal scalability. That is probably one of its stronger features, the ability just to automatically parallelize the replay and playing of data to allow to scale to large volumes.
The performance of the user interface is in need of improvement.
Overall the product is fine, but sometimes its reports unknown errors while we compile ETL scripts.
It would be really good if Oracle considered enabling the tool to integrate with some other platforms that are deprecated simply for commercial reasons
It lacks a suite of tools suitable for fully processing data and moving it into decision support warehouses.
The stability of the software could be improved. Sometimes, the software just crashes.
If there was an add-on tool to hide the performance issues and solve them for me, then I might be interested in that as it would provide me value.
I rate it a seven out of 10 because there is room for growth because ODI is still new, in comparison to Informatica, which is a mature product.
Technical Support could be better.
I find the user interface to be difficult for non-technical people.
Additional performance metrics should be added and visible in a dashboard, displayed in a detailed manner.
It's stable but you have to know how to maintain it. That's why it's not 10 out of 10 for me. There are some bugs, there are some issues here and there. All of a sudden your process is not working and you have to figure out why, and sometimes it's not so clear.
Pricing and Cost Advice
We found that the cost compared to other integration tools is a little high, but the solution works great.
Being an ODI developer, I never had to pay for this product. I know that the pricing/licensing is not really low, but the product is really good.
We do like the price of this solution.
The licensing model should be improved to be more cost-effective for the end users.
The one feature that I think Oracle could perhaps consider is, at the moment, the Veridata option is an extra cost. Golden Gate is an expensive product. You pay a lot for the best. But not including the Veridata license to prove that everything is working correctly... The big improvement for me would be to have that license built in. That would take it to the next level. That would make it a much better product. You may want to look at buying term licenses if you've just got a single migration to do. In that situation, you might want a term license for perhaps a year to save a lot of money, rather than buying a perpetual license.
