Rated 5 out of 5 by We can make all the EPM tools work together as one and we can create a puzzle that will increase the performance and capability of all EPM tools. Valuable Features:It's the best tool for data integration. It can do anything you want, but the only downside is that you need to know what you are doing. You can take 10 times longer to do the same thing if you don't know how to use the tool.You have to know how to change the KM, how to use the dynamic coding, how to create dynamic models, and so on. In a lot of places, I see people using ODI wrongly, but the good thing about the tool is that isn't hard to fix common mistakes. With this you can improve performance, and in some cases, more than 10 times.Improvements to My Organization:For the EPM environment, the ODI is the key to transforming a good project into a great project. With ODI, we can make all the EPM tools work together as one and we can create a puzzle that will increase the performance and capability of all EPM tools. We can have an integrated environment and decrease the close time from two days to one hour.Room for Improvement:Right now, we have two very different UIs - 11g and 12c. 11g is faster to develop than 12c as it takes more steps to do exactly the same as 11g, but you have a lot of things that you need to do yourself.12c implemented some things for which you have to use some specialized code automatically, like parallel data load, but it is slower to develop. For me, the best thing would be to merge the UI from 11g into the capabilities of 12c.Use of Solution:I've been using it for over 10 years.Deployment Issues:We have had no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:There were issues mainly because of a Java memory leak.Scalability Issues:We have had no issues with scaling it for our needs.Technical Support:The technical support for EPM is bad. I don't remember anytime that the service support helped me with something. The problem is bigger when you have an environment with more than one product like Hyperion Planning and ODI.This happens because the products have different owners within Oracle and then different supports, and because of this, if you open a trouble ticket of loading data to planning and you say the words ODI, you'll be pushed around the two separate support teams indefinitely, even if your company has an Oracle support director just for you.Initial Setup:The bigger the environment, the bigger the challenge is you need to face. Maybe one day Oracle will integrate all their tools. It'll be easier, and the good thing is that I saw a lot of improvements over the years.Cost and Licensing Advice:All tools are expensive, but I think ODI is the most expensive since it depends on your sources and target databases. I think the best way to go is by doing packages and try to include free tools (if you buy Planning you have an ODI for BI licenses for free) or try to get discounts from your Oracle supplier. It's always good to explore what could happen if you get another tool or hardware together. Sometimes, you get more for less than if you get just one tool. Just be careful to not buy things that you won't use.Other Solutions Considered:I'm a consultant and my only evaluation was on the database. I decided on Oracle because of the database and during my career, their other tools are starting to come naturally.Other Advice:Because Oracle products are development frameworks, your final results are as good as the people that implemented it. Make sure that your implementation team is the best it could be, at least for the first implementation. If something is implemented incorrectly at the start, it'll cost you a lot more to fix than to build a new system from scratch. Sometimes it can be so badly designed that it is impossible to fix.I've been working on implementations for 19 years and I have seen bad implementations everywhere. In fact, I have seen the same tools implemented in the same team by two different people, with one being a success and the other a failure. In the same company, one department says that the tool does not work for them and another says that the tool is the best. The only difference was the implementer. Make sure you get a good team to implement it. The tool has its flaws but most of time (99%) it is the implementer's fault that you have a bad or slow model.Disclaimer: IT Central Station contacted the reviewer to collect the review and to validate authenticity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by I can readily develop processes that use relational, file, XML, JMS messaging, web and big data sources or targets. Valuable Features:The most important aspect of the product is the ability to work with almost any data source or target. I can readily develop processes that use relational, file, XML, JMS messaging, web and big data sources or targets.I can control the style of integration through "knowledge modules", and if they don’t do exactly what I want. I can write my own or customize the Oracle supplied ones.The ability to execute third-party (or in-house developed) Java code by installing JAR files allows a great deal of flexibility; for example, I can add custom processors to do access web APIs that use token based authentication.Another key feature is that we do not need to pass our data through some form of ETL engine hosted on a server; in some cases for example transforming data within a data warehouse all of the processing is done in single SQL queries thus reducing network traffic.Finally, the rich SDK supplied with ODI allows developers to create virtually any form of development or deployment automation.Improvements to My Organization:It allows a single skill set to handle virtually all of the data transport and transformation needs of a company. It moves the ETL processing to where the data resides and saves network traffic and the need for dedicated transformation engines - hardware that needs to be purchased, managed and supported.Room for Improvement:There needs to better support of external version control software, currently only SVN is present, but I hear the GIT is planned in future patch.From a DevOps point of view it would be useful to add better separation between ‘code’ and ‘executable’ exports, at the moment a piece of code will contain the embedded executable which bloats any source control objects (this may only be relevant to those the develop their own source and code control processes).Use of Solution:I've been using it for the last 10 years.Deployment Issues:We've had no issues with deployment.Stability Issues:12cR2 is a new version, and there are a few issues with stability, but I expect most to be resolved in the first patch.Scalability Issues:There have been no issues with the scalability.Technical Support:I rarely engage with support.Previous Solutions:As an independent consultant, I work with other ETL products, and switching is requirement of my employers. However, of the products I used recently (Informatica and Talend), I feel ODI gives me the most flexibility.Initial Setup:Set up of ODI Studio and the ODI repository is relatively simple, it is all done through a single JAR file executable. The complexity comes when you need to create ODI agents - there are three flavors of agent and the best choice of agent will depend on your agent management needs and infrastructure. The ODI agent executes ODI code and interacts with the host OS, typically one agent is sufficient, but more may be needed.Cost and Licensing Advice:The licensing model has changed a few times over the years - read the Oracle price list or speak to sales.Other Advice:Plan your ODI infrastructure, especially where data is transformed to ensure you get the best balance between license costs and performance. Get your developers trained in best practices so that avoid unnecessary pit falls.Disclaimer: IT Central Station contacted the reviewer to collect the review and to validate authenticity. The reviewer was referred by the vendor, but the review is not subject to editing or approval by the vendor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by All our systems can be widely integrated by ODI, such as transactional systems, our data warehouses, and B2B integration. Valuable Features:There are several very important features that we use daily.* All our systems can be widely integrated by ODI, such as transactional systems, our data warehouses, and B2B integration.* ODI is really powerful for BI projects with traditional star-schema loads. For example, we integrated Salesforce to an Oracle data warehouse with it.* It facilitates real-time data replication from Microsoft SQL Server to an operational database sitting on Oracle Database.* It provides for legacy systems integration. It integrates any SQL server database.Room for Improvement:There is always room for improvement, even when something is really good, but I think ODI is one of the best ETL tools in the market. However, I've always waited the web service feature to be improved in version 11G but there were some limitations . Also it would be really good if Oracle considered enabling the tool to integrate with some other platforms that are deprecated simply for commercial reasons, although it looks like the cloud option offers some extra connectors (for example, in Sales force CRM).Deployment Issues:I've never had any issues with deployment, but it's really helpful if the DBA supporting the environment has minimal knowledge of what ETL/ODI is, etc. Communication between database admins and users is really important.Stability Issues:I've never had any issues with stability.Scalability Issues:I haven't had any issues with scalability.Technical Support:Technical service is a 6, and Oracle needs to improve this.Initial Setup:Getting the right JDK during agent config on Solaris was challenging on one occasion. It needs a Solaris expert to do this, although it was improved in version 10G.Other Advice:The setup of the environment requires experts on site, but it is very worth it since at first for customers it can be quite complex. The vendor needs to enable the customer on a frequent basis during implementation, but the results are great.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The features that we have applied to our project have helped to reduce manual effort and increase our scalability. Valuable Features:The main features we use and has helped us to implement our ETL process are* Data transformation* In memory engine* KM customization* User friendly GUI* Versioning* Big Data support* Security support* Easy deployment* Reusable Mapping* Multiple Target Load* ELT Architecture* Application Server support for other vendor servers such as IBM WebsphereImprovements to My Organization:The features that we have applied to our project has helped us reduce manual effort and increased our scalability and growth. I worked on multiple domains where requirements were adversely different. We used many ODI features to enhanced our data transformation capability.Room for Improvement:I am personally satisfied with current version, however, I think they should be able to provide a feature where we can easily use a configuration tool for TFS, GIT etc. This is essential for code management.Use of Solution:I've been using it for six years.Deployment Issues:We have had no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:There have been no performance issues.Scalability Issues:It's been able to scale for our needs.Customer Service:9/10Technical Support:8/10Previous Solutions:I have not used any other product. However, I have seen other ETL tools in use such as BODS, SOA, and Informatica and I did not like them as I did not that they were user friendly.Initial Setup:It was straightforward. I used an application server for the initial setup and I did not find any challenges.Implementation Team:We performed an in-house one. If you have a technical team for ODI, then they can easily perform any implementation. If not, then you should have the vendor perform your implementation.ROI:10/10Cost and Licensing Advice:It is not as costly as other ETL tools.Other Advice:You should use Oracle Data Integrator for your data transformation, or at the very least give it a try.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by It uses the power of the source or target database to actually perform the ETL processing. Valuable Features:The biggest feature for ODI is the fact that it uses the power of the source or target database to actually perform the ETL processing. So a typical data integration tool might have its own ETL engine, and that would be an additional server, additional costs, something else you have to maintain. ODI actually has the ability to create and generate code that runs potentially on your Oracle database, or even on a big data target, on Hadoop or somewhere like that. So, you have that flexibility, and you don't have to have that additional cost in maintenance.A couple other additional benefits of Oracle Data Integrator would be the use of what's called a knowledge module. So this is like a code template that uses the metadata that you have available within ODI, and within your mapping, to generate that code, that then can be executed, like I said before, on the source or target system. The code'll be generated in the native format of that database or that technology. So, again, you have sort of a hands-off.These knowledge modules are built in. They can be developed and modified. So, the biggest thing, I always think, with ODI is, it fits around your data warehouse needs. Rather than taking your production, or your business, and trying to make it fit a tool, you do the opposite. You make the tool fit your business.Room for Improvement:One thing that is included, and it's going to improve, is the integration with a configuration management tool. Right now, they integrate with Subversion. And we know in the future, there's going to be more tools implemented there for configuration management and some new features there. So right now, it's kind of one of those features that, it's been released, but it's sort of a beta version of that feature where a lot more functionality will be coming down the line.Stability Issues:So ODI is actually quite a stable product. As a testament to the product team that develops it, they're not going to release something that is extremely buggy or things like that. So, I do see that often they will release features that are highly anticipated and highly sought after. And they might release them a little early. So there's definitely patching that comes into play there, to kind of get the full solution there.As far as stability, the Oracle Data Integrator has agents that run either in WebLogic, as a Java deployment there, or on a server as a Java agent, or a Java deployment. As long as a client has had the product implemented, with no issues there. So that's kind of the key there, you don't want to have those agents have a blip or any issues.Scalability Issues:So as far as scalability of Oracle Data Integrator, from the high availability standpoint, if you use WebLogic for your agent, you can use the clustering capability within WebLogic to create multiple nodes on different WebLogic servers. And then run your agent through that process there. So if something fails, if the main agent fails, it can fail over to the secondary agent or, again, another agent in your cluster.Technical Support:I'd probably put them up there around an eight, yeah. Being a system integrator of Oracle products, typically I'm on behalf of a client. So oftentimes it depends on who your client is and what their level of support is, as far as response and how things go. But I've always had great response with those guys.Previous Solutions:A lot of the projects I've worked on recently are Oracle VM apps projects. So, it's the folks that are in the Informatica version of VI apps, and looking at moving to the latest and greatest, which has Oracle Data Integrator behind the scenes. I'm not saying they're actually talking about using Informatica, they're just, that's what they have. And they're looking to migrate. Quite often where we come into play, ODI is typically chosen at that point. And then they call us in to help with it.Implementation Team:It's not too difficult. It's tough to look at it from the perspective of someone who hasn't been doing it for a while. And oftentimes, that's what you need to kind of make that determination. But as far as just getting up and running, you can get it installed, configure an agent, quite quickly. And then the next step would really be getting ready to build a mapping. And they actually introduced in the most recent release, or maybe even when 12C came out, they introduced a feature that would basically get everything, topology, the models, all the data stores, everything, ready to go for you, just in one simple wizard. And then you could actually start building mappings quickly.A lot of it is when they have home-grown ETL processes. So they'll manually script their ETL code. It's basically something that's difficult to maintain. So we talk about how we can use ODI to keep everything centralized. And even if we're not using ODI to actually build out mappings within the product, we might still be able to run that PL SQL or whatever it is, the script for ETL, from within ODI.So we still have everything consolidated and contained and then the other approach, or reason for moving to ODI, would be the need to get off of that middle tier integration server. That we don't need with ODI.Other Solutions Considered:As far as why consider Oracle Data Integrator, I think the big thing is the ability to consolidate all of your ETL into one place. Whether it's an Oracle to Oracle, source to target load, or even Oracle to Hadoop, or anything in between. SQL Server, MySQL, XML. ODI can basically talk to all of those different technologies. From a consolidation of all of your data warehouse or your data integration, if you will. And also, just use the same approach for mapping and creating processes for all of those different types of solutions. You have everything logically defined. And so when you're developing, it actually doesn't look any different than an Oracle source, and target doesn't look any different than a Hadoop source and target.Other Advice:So I would rate ODI a nine. And that's really because, just looking across the other ETL tools, so I mentioned Informatica, there's a lot of other ones out there. I've seen what ODI does from a sort of a declarative design approach, and the push-down of work to the source and target. I've seen that replicated in other tools that have come out after Oracle Data Integrator. That's a big key.It puts it kind of at the top, if you're going to look at a scale across all of the ETL tools. The other aspect to that rating is how they're integrating a lot of the big data technologies now. And it's a big deal from an Oracle standpoint, it's kind of how things are going. And it also just makes sense to, again, keep everything consolidated in one place. You already have an investment in ODI, it makes sense to try to drive some of your other big data type Hadoop loads or whatever it may be from that same place.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We're a partner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A tool that can talk or learn how to talk, with any database or operating system in its own language. Valuable Features:Flexibility, customization, features, ease of deployment, and the ability to access to all kinds of different source system technologies.Improvements to My Organization:It helped me to reduce a slowly changing dimensions type 2 with the same output, from 22,000 seconds to 168 seconds.Room for Improvement:They need to work on the multiuser development environment and include the ability to comply with different kinds of SDLCs.Use of Solution:I've been using it for more than 10 years.Deployment Issues:There were no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:We've experienced no issues with performance.Scalability Issues:It's been able to scale for our needs.Technical Support:They're very efficient.Previous Solutions:We switched because of ODIs impressive increase in development productivity.Initial Setup:It was straightforward and very easy. Almost the same as setup>next> next>next.Cost and Licensing Advice:There are various options in licensing, either per seat or per target core count. It depends how you want to use it.Other Solutions Considered:We also looked at Informatica Power Center, AbInitio, Business Objects Data Integrator (BODI), and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).Other Advice:If you want a robust, flexible solution with no extra hardware that is easy to learn, then ODI is the right product for you. ODI is a tool, that can talk or learn how to talk, with any database or operating system in its own language. This is the power of ODI.Disclaimer: IT Central Station contacted the reviewer to collect the review and to validate authenticity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by It has made it possible for our organization to rapidly build robust integration. There are no tools/dashboards to monitor/administrate this in-memory database. Valuable Features:The ability to build integrations that process large amounts of data (in GBs), be it file transfers ,DB operations, and web service calls, etc.Improvements to My Organization:ODI has made it possible for our organization to rapidly build robust integrations that process large data. The learning curve of this technology is also very smooth and can be picked up by any one with minimal programming experience.Room for Improvement:ODI's "in-memory RDBMS" is still a black box for programmers as there are no tools/dashboards to monitor/administrate this in-memory database. As a result, inconsistent data processing issues generally force us to restart the ODI server.Deployment Issues:There were no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:We've experienced no issues with performance.Scalability Issues:It's been able to scale for our needs.Other Advice:The product may not be as evolved as Informatica, but still has a lot to offer in the Fusion Middleware Product Suite. Keeps all the promises of an ETL/ELT tool, but when it comes to Administration and maintenance the product still leaves a lot to be desired.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Partners May 23, 2016
