Quotes From Members Comparing Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) vs Pentaho Data Integration

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.​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.It is an ETL tool, which does the extract, transform, and load.

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​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).The GUI is a very old-fashioned, fat client that should be renewed.

​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
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.It is very expensive (after bargaining).

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