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.

WhereScape's deployment package is a fantastic feature. The application allows for selecting specific objects that you would like to deploy from one environment to another rather than deploying the entire database.WhereScape RED has improved our business's ability to generate needed reporting without requiring a large team of developers to manually code all of the necessary plumbing.Their support staff are very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. I feel their support staff go above and beyond to assure their customers are satisfied.RED has provided us the ability to integrate, stage, and transform data from diverse sources into an enterprise-grade data warehouse which meets the needs of my organization, but it also enables us to easily and quickly make ETL or DW changes.RED generates comprehensive documentation and regenerates it as quickly as things changes, but it also provides impact documentation.Data transformations and rollups are easy to accomplish.Quickly develops a data warehouse for our organization with documentation and can track back/forward features.This is a fantastically robust DW tool that will make you at least 10 times faster in producing a DW.

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).

The scheduled jobs which are run by the WhereScape scheduler seem to be a strangely separate animal. Unlike all other WhereScape objects, jobs cannot be added to WhereScape projects. Also, unlike all other objects, jobs also cannot be deleted using a WhereScape deployment application.Jobs cannot be deleted via the deployment package. When deploying from dev to QA or production, a job has to be retired. The job has to be manually removed from the target environment.The ability to execute SSIS projects within WhereScape would be nice because we have a lot of packages that are too cumbersome to recreate.They need a more robust support center. It has been a bit difficult to find solutions to problems that are out-of-the-box.It could use a tool to diagnose what is missing from the environment for WhereScape to install successfully.Improve the object renaming ability (it works, but it could be more automated).No support for change data capture or delta detection - that must be custom coded .

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.

Speed to market of a warehouse solution at a relatively inexpensive price point.ROI is at least 10 times.Factor in the price of specialized consulting who know this product. They're hard to find and expensive.
