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 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.I do not have to maintain a separate ETL instance. I can change the SQL when something is not performing correctly.It can integrate with more recent databases like Cassandra, Hadoop, and other more recent Big Data databases.

Cons
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.It needs easier security.I would only point out some minor bugs or glitches in the development interface (ODI studio).

​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.
