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

Pros
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.

Cons
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 reasonsIt 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.

​There is not a data quality or MDM solution in the Pentaho DI suite.​​I could not connect to our Hadoop environment in an easy and flexible way, and it was important to scale our data warehouse​.​I work with the Community Edition, therefore I do not have support. There was an issue that I could not resolve with community support.​One thing that I don't like, just a little, is the backward compatibility.I would like to see more improvements with AS400 DB2.

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.

There is a good open source option (Community Edition)​.
