Actian Pervasive Data Integrator

I wouldn't recommend Data Integrator over SSIS, but it may be a better tool than other ETL offerings. Having a background in the Microsoft Stack, I am hesitant to recommend any other products especially in a Microsoft-centric company. If this was the only option to use, I think it does a good job at integrating systems after taking time to learn the approach. "Maps" in Data Integrator is definitely different than "process flow" philosophy in SSIS.

Oracle Data Integrator

Oracle Data Integrator is well suited in all the situations where you need to integrate data from and to different systems/technologies/environments or to schedule some tasks. I've used it on Oracle Database (Data Warehouses or Data Marts), with great loading and transforming performances to accomplish any kind of relational task. This is true for all Oracle applications (like Hyperion Planning, Hyperion Essbase, Hyperion Financial Management, and so on).I've also used it to manage files on different operating systems, to execute procedures in various languages and to read and write data from and to non-Oracle technologies, and I can confirm that its performances have always been very good.It can become less appropriate depending on the expenses that can be afforded by the customer since its license costs are quite high.

Pros

  • Map multiple source and destination tables - what would be done in many steps in SSIS can be done in one or two "maps" in Data Integrator.
  • Platform independent, cloud based, no client software.
  • Conversion of data types, write flat files - this helps us with integrating systems.
  • Fairly straightforward to use if the user has ETL experience.

  • 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!
  • I managed to connect to an Ingress Database, within 3 days of time (it is not supported out of the box).
  • When a new version of source and/or target database supports new data types, it takes my 5 minutes to implement it into ODI and immediately start using it.
  • Flexibility, ease of customization, extensive features, ease of deployment, and the ability to access to all kinds of different source system technologies. No need for extra hardware for transformation step.
  • Easy to learn & develop. It takes your 3 days to learn ODI and be an "intermediate ODI Developer", if you know how to write SQL.
  • Big data connectors are implemented since ODI 11.1.1.7 (out-of-the-box) and upper version that support many well-known Big Data architecture.
  • Knowledge Module architecture helps you to build your data integration activities with less effort.

Cons

  • Sometimes the screen does not load- since it is a web based software, this can be seen as a reliability issue.
  • "Maps" can become somewhat complex, and between multiple developers this can be painful when sharing or explaining others' work.
  • The concept of macros adds flexibility in how to solve problems, but is a separate language and can take time to learn and master.

  • The product sometimes have small bugs, which are fixed with patches.
  • Very complex queries are difficult to do in graphics mappings
  • It has functionality versions but can not develop in parallel a same object.

It is maturing and over time will have a good pool of resources. Each new version has addressed the issues of the previous ones. Its getting better and bigger.

Alternatives Considered

Data Integrator was initially a part of a package deal for us with our new Student Information System. It was chosen prior to my arrival at the institution. Since I discovered we have SQL Server licenses, we have decided to use SSIS instead since I have a background in the MSBI stack and SSIS appears to be more straightforward (process flow philosophy vs "map" philosophy.)

We thought IBM was too expensive and more difficult to use. With Microsoft, since we have our main application running with Oracle DB, we understood it’d be easier for us to work with ODI.

Return on Investment

  • This tool was chosen prior to my arrival and was used to build three integrations. We have decided to switch to SSIS since we have licenses for it and it is a more common tool for ETL integrations.
  • It has been difficult to network with individuals that have experience with this tool.
  • Having been a part of a software package purchased, we have chosen to use a different tool for future integrations and plan to rewrite existing integrations.

  • ODI has allowed us to move metadata more efficiently
  • Our data movement process has been error free for quite some time
  • Cost has been reduced thanks to bundled licensing with products like OBIEE
