We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"​All our systems can be widely integrated by ODI, such as transactional systems, our data warehouses, and B2B integration.""It's completely user-friendly.""The most valuable feature that we use is the Knowledge Modules.""All ETL code is stored in repositories in underlying database schemas. The number of users can access and work on the same solution using a client tool. So distributed teams can work on this tool in an efficient manner.""The scalability is great. It's one of the reasons we chose the solution."

More Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Pros »

"This solution has a well-known procedure for troubleshooting and tuning the performance, providing for smooth operation.""This solution provides us with real-time replication and it does not affect the performance of other operations, which is very important to us.""When we are replicating data between similar databases then it is straightforward.""The initial setup is straightforward. It doesn't take too much time or effort to implement the solution.""This is a powerful solution provided by one of the most respected companies in the computer industry.""The most valuable feature is data replication capability.""The CDC feature is interesting.""They've recently improved the ease of implementation."

Cons
"It would be really good if Oracle considered enabling the tool to integrate with some other platforms that are deprecated simply for commercial reasons""Overall the product is fine, but sometimes its reports unknown errors while we compile ETL scripts.""The performance of the user interface is in need of improvement.""There are certain things where it can be improved. Initial solution setup seems a bit complex at the start, it should be improved because it becomes bit tough for a novice to get started on this. Sometimes error description is not helpful to understand the problem it gives some generic type of errors which are at times not that helpful to understand the underlying root cause of the issue.""The resource management aspect of the solution could be improved."

More Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Cons »

"Additional performance metrics should be added and visible in a dashboard, displayed in a detailed manner.""I find the user interface to be difficult for non-technical people.""The process of transforming the data between two different databases is inefficient and needs to be improved.""The solution, in general, should be easier to use, with less need to perform workarounds within the system.""Technical support for Oracle products needs to be more efficient (at least locally in Egypt).""It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure.""We struggle with memory. It's limited. However, it may be because of our unique business case and how we use it that it's limiting for us.""The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."

More Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing model should be improved to be more cost-effective for the end users.""We do like the price of this solution.""Pricing is based on anual licensing with additional costs for support packages.""The price of this solution is good.""We have an enterprise license for it. It might be for three years or so. I'm not aware of any additional costs to the standard licensing fee."

There are two products I know about
* TimeXtender : Microsoft based, Transformation logic is quiet good and can easily be extended with T-SQL , Has a semantic layer that generates metat data for cubes . price approx 40K$, works with tables
. Attunity (Bought by Qlik) : technology agnostic , nice web interface , expensive > 100K€. Works with transaction logs

There are many other pure ETL tools
* ERWIN has a nice one ,

We have experiences only in Pentaho Data Integrator (open source competitor of the Oracle Data Integrator).
But OLAP exporting wasn't in our scope until now.

author avatarPhil Wilkins (Capgemini)

Depends upon the technologies being used. If you're using Oracle for both OLTP and OLAP then you'll get a lot of value from an Oracle solution.


The other question is how up to date do you want your OLAP DB to be? Goldengate is a good answer if you're looking to minimize latency, but it can be expensive. ODI is less expensive but better suited to bulkier data sets.  If an Oracle product wasn't the option I'd probably consider something like Informatica.

Hi Karoly, Thanks for your input. community: https://forums.pentaho.com/ is not allowing new registrations for new users. I guess they accept queries from customers only and not from any one. Do you know any other forum, community, SMEs contacts who can help on queries?
