I know I'm late to the party but here are my comments to this. I would ask what version of ODI are you running, but for the most part it doesn't matter. I will say that since you are saying Mapping which is new terminology to 12c or higher. Also remember that ODI runs best…

One of the best things that you can do is identify the stakeholders for Master Data Management. Once that group is identified you have that group assign a leads to be on the governance committee. Assign one person on this committee to be the overall lead so there is one…

Alan Yves. Thanks for the comment. I would agree that definitely ODI can capture simple things like missing columns or the fact that you can create custom error handling. What I was referring to is out-of-the-box error handling. If you were to hook source file to a target…

Check the java heap size in the ODI params file to keep it from failing. To the issue: You should be able to set the status in the operator to success. Without seeing what is happening that’s all I can offer. I would be happy to setup a quick session to dig in. I offer…

Thanks for the review and keep them coming. I like what you put in here for improvements. However, don't hold your breath for Oracle Cloud integration. Most Oracle ETL/ELT tools don't have direct cloud integration yet and its not on the roadmap for a few years. V/r,…

First, Great review and thanks for posting. There are a few things you can do to lessen the crippling effect of a change to the source. Use variables to loosen the grip the source has, making it more dynamic. I would agree that unless you have been doing this for…

What portion of ODI crashes? This sounds like an infrastructure issue rather then a tool issue.

Would have to ask the additional question of what are we trying to do? IPC is much better are larger implementations as SSIS is much better for smaller scale operations because of speed of development and price. However, ODI is better than both of these tools. Even if its…

1. There is a as of date in the properties. The second recommendation of using the space ODI provides to document when object have been updated. There are a few other ways to make sure that you track changes. You can even compare versions. 2. You are right. Project level…

Can you be more specific on what you are trying to accomplish?

All my response can be used for any version of ODI. You can create users with multiple levels of access. Security can be wide open or very granular. You can use versioning and even create reports from the repository to have a full audit. You should have one master…

CPU and RAM is where you want to consider first when evaluating DataCenter Virtualization. Once you figure that out you can start looking at other things like Storage and Networking. Without the foundation of good CPU and RAM there would be no point in looking at anything…

I think it is a game changer of they can bump up the Scalability. On if it is feasible or not, anything can happen. I have seen other ETL tools totally revamp their solutions and become leaders in the space.

Scalability is still lacking a bit. If you are looking to run Millions of records in seconds this isn't the tool for the job. If you are looking to run a few hundred thousand in a min then this will work.

What is your favorite Valuable Feature? I personally like Reusable Mappings and Knowledge Module (KM) Customization.

Great review. I agree that it can streamline the Metadata loading process for EPM applications. Especially if you have DRM installed you can automate the front to end process just by kicking off a few batch scripts. You just have to make sure you have the licensing to do it.

I'm a long time user of ODI and specifically ODI12c. If that makes me a addict; then sign me up for the meeting. I love the reusable mapping but the best part of this 12c is that its now Flow based. I would also have to agree with Michael Rainey on all the points that he…

What are your thoughts on ODI 12c? Did you think that the GUI improved? Do you think that its more in line with the other ETL tools out there?
Over 5 years ago
This is great thanks for posting. Have you completed this in ODI12c? It would be interesting to see how the approach changes because of the differences in the versions.

WIth Cloud implementations there are plenty of analytics that you can reference when moving data using ETL tools. Even outside of the Cloud space I think that there are plenty of options as long as you are on Oracle Products to do this type of analytics. But really what it…

This is a great review. Speaks well to the purpose, flexibility, and overall strength of ODI.

Both are good products. Really depends on what you want to do. If you are looking to run a product that can run something like a brokerage project, with little configuration, then you should go with GoldenGate. If you are looking to run daily operations for Integration then…

When evaluating data integration, think about versioning and audibility.  Other ETL/ELT tools preach it, however ODI lives and breaths it. Also, look at reusability. 12c especially has lots of cool reusable parts that will make development easy and quick.  Security should…
