Easy to use and maintain, integrates well, and can handle any type of data
Pros and Cons
  • "Once it is set up, it is easy to use and maintain."
  • "If the length of time required for deployment was reduced then it would be very helpful."

What is our primary use case?

We are a system integrator and software solutions company, and Oracle Data Quality is one of the solutions that we use to provide services.

In a multiple-system integration scenario, there is data flowing between different systems. Oracle Data Quality is used to establish a single source of truth. It is also used for new system integration and new application integration.

What is most valuable?

Customers are really keen to use this product for profiling, auditing, synching, and matching.

This system can handle any kind of data, whether it is customer data, product data, personal data, or financial data.

It integrates well with third-party applications.

Once it is set up, it is easy to use and maintain.

What needs improvement?

There are some challenges with respect to standardization, matching, segregation, and merging. Our technical team has not found this to be problematic but it has been reported by some of our customers.

Making this solution easier for non-technical end-users would be an improvement.

If the length of time required for deployment was reduced then it would be very helpful. For example, rather than take two or three weeks to deploy, having a simple implementation done within two or three days would be great.

The vendor needs to revisit their pricing strategy.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Oracle Data Quality for between six and eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Once it is configured, it is stable and will not crash.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution can scale with no issues. All of our customers are enterprise-level organizations, although I do know of some medium-sized companies that also use it.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support from Oracle is excellent.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also work with Informatica and other tools, but this is my primary solution for this task.

Compared to the competition, Oracle Data Quality is a very flexible and advanced product.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex, although it requires expertise and experience. It is not an out-of-the-box solution. The reason is that it is not meant for a particular purpose. It is a very powerful product that can handle any type of data, which means that it has to be properly configured for the requirements. Once the customer-specific configuration has been set up, the rest is quite straightforward.

For a couple of applications, the deployment will take a couple of weeks to get everything up and running.

What about the implementation team?

We deploy this solution for our clients. For a simple installation, it does not require more than one person for the deployment. One administrator is required to set it up. After that, one data quality person is enough to handle it, even in an environment of medium complexity.

What other advice do I have?

We primarily work with the on-premises version, although we do have one project that uses the cloud-based deployment. The cloud version is a recent offering from Oracle.

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to understand and define the business needs properly. All of the requirements have to be properly defined. This will allow you to take advantage of the best benefits of Oracle Data Quality.

It is important that you don't keep changing the requirements during implementation because it can become very messy. There can be a lot of issues that come from this. Creating the right roadmap for the various types of data is very important.

We have not had any major challenges in working with this product. Nonetheless, no product is perfect and there is always an improvement that is needed.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

A little complex in terms of the designing the infrastructure but not too complex.

What is most valuable?

Data Cleansing, Profiling, Matching, Customizable platform to meet anyone's needs.

How has it helped my organization?

Identifies the data anomalies and correct them. Finds the duplicate data with the entire enterprise Customer/Product data and merges them to make a single Customer or Product unique across the enterprise.

What needs improvement?

Integration performance and availability of out of the box integration to more products (ERP Tools, Data Cleansing Software etc.).

For how long have I used the solution?

6 Years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

None

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Used to have issues with the previous versions, but the product is pretty stable right now and added load balancing and high availability solutions in recent versions

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No. Product is very scalable as long enough database space and application server memory and CPU provided.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Very Good. Product team based UK is very responsive and helpful for all the solution questions and fixing defects.

Technical Support:

Good in USA through Oracle Support. Great in UK from Product team.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used to use a different solution, but switched to Oracle Data Quality because of its range of features and platform to perform multiple requirements in the same tool.

How was the initial setup?

Initial Setup is always very simple. Need to be tuned at application and database level for improved performance based on the data handling requirements.

What about the implementation team?

In-house team. We are specialized in Oracle Data Management practice with Data Quality as one of our strongest suites.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes. Informatica Data Quality, SAP BO, Talend etc.

What other advice do I have?

I'd recommend this solution to anyone who is using data quality or would want to know the quality of data in their company and fix the data. Great Dashboards and Audit capabilities. Can be used as light ETL tool as well.

Matching and Cleansing capabilities are second to none in Data Quality space.

I like the ease of management within ODI.

What is most valuable?

Ease of management within Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) and effectivity of EDQ Director

How has it helped my organization?

OEDQ helped us to define Data Quality issues from a business perspective by business users and ability to manage those issues within our ETL tool (Oracle Data Integrator - ODI).

What needs improvement?

Mobile support and mobile app can be implemented, since business users generally prefers to work with their laptops and mobile phones.

For how long have I used the solution?

5+ years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No, ease of installation with web based client.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, what you enter provides you the exact solution you need.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't faced any bugs, so didn't create any service request.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No.

How was the initial setup?

Straightforward. Jave web application (OEDQ Director) helped us for not installing any client application.

What about the implementation team?

In-house.

What was our ROI?

Data Quality issues solved quickly, easily and jobs are controlled within Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) seamlessly.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Trillium was considered but not having in-ETL management and licensing cost.

A good pick for a data quality management solution. I hope they add more instructions and examples to their online help.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of this product for me:

  1. Address verification
  2. Integrated data profiling, auditing, and cleansing.

How has it helped my organization?

We were able to automate our data profiling tasks that enabled us to identify and establish data quality rules and standards more efficiently. Since the rules are set up and integrated within the tool, it also facilitated an improvement in our data quality audit/validation and cleansing efforts. The address verification capability is also handy i.e. in making sure that our Customer and Supplier master data is accurate.

What needs improvement?

I hope they can add some more detailed instructions and examples to their Online Help documentation.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this product for around 3 years now.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We used the Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ) Quick Start Windows Installer and did not encounter any issue, except in establishing the connectivity with Oracle Data Integrator due to versions compatibility constraints. We found the fix from My Oracle Support.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have experienced some system crashes i.e. when tying to run Data Profiling Processes for very large data sets. We had to restart the EDQ Application Server to resolve the problem.

How are customer service and technical support?

We encountered some troubles during our initial set up / installation and we had to re-do it all over again. We asked for assistance from the Vendor and the customer service we received is satisfactory.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are doing the data quality processes manually prior to EDQ deployment.

How was the initial setup?

The Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ) Quick Start Windows Installer that we used for the initial setup is fairly uncomplicated. The complicated part is setting up the Global Knowledge Repository setup (Loqate) as the installation instructions are not very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented through an in-house team.

What other advice do I have?

Oracle EDQ is indeed a state-of-the-art tool that will help you understand, improve, protect, and govern the quality of your enterprise data in a single integrated and collaborative environment. It is powerful yet easy to use. A good pick for a data quality management solution.

We used Informatica IIR and switched because of support & compatibility reasons.

What is most valuable?

Synchronization of Contact / Account data is most valuable to the client.

How has it helped my organization?

The quality of data has vastly improved & our business intelligence reports are accurate in real time.

Additional examples:

1) Stateless – that means no synchronization of Contact / Account data is needed between Siebel and OEDQ. If for example a new contacts gets created – it will be possible to match this new contact immediately. There is no lag time for the synchronization between both.

2) Fully configurable matching process. In OEDQ a matched contact or account – the rules which are applicable while matching can be identified. So a score of 95% can be explained in such a way that a contact was found based on an exact match but with a different phone number.

What needs improvement?

Installation & initial setup while integrating with other enterprise software vendors.

For how long have I used the solution?

2 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Yes, Java 64 bit version was used, but Siebel the enterprise software application was 32-bit. So we had compatibility issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stand-Alone application (OEDQ) was very stable with-in apache.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Oracle customer service was excellent.

Technical Support:

Oracle technical support was great as we got the response of most of our resolution ticket on the same day.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, we used Informatica IIR (identity resolution system) & we switched because most of Enterprise software was Oracle based, so for support & compatibility reasons we switched to OEDQ.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup for OEDQ was straight forward but integration with CRM system was complex.

What about the implementation team?

This product was implemented as a part of in-house development.

What was our ROI?

We have trust worthy & reliable data; accurate ana.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

N/A. Software was procured by another department based on our request. You need one FTE or consultant to maintain the product after initial setup.

What other advice do I have?

Ensure that you have clear understanding when integration OEDQ with other enterprise software. Also ensure that software compatibility matrix & setup documentation has been reviewed carefully.
