Which ETL tool would you recommend to populate data from OLTP to OLAP?


I am currently working as a solution architect for a tech vendor with 10,000+ employees. 

I need to perform a comparative analysis for ETL tools available to populate data from OLTP to OLAP.

The main criteria I am considering are:

  • Price
  • Functionality (transformation, error logging and handling, loading patterns to be supported)
  • Development and maintenance efforts
  • Popularity in market.

I want to evaluate both Oracle and Open Source options. I am also open to both tools (ODI, Golden Gate, etc) and technology- e.g. Oracle Materialized view.

Thanks! I appreciate your help.

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.

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?
