Apache Kafka

Apache Kafka is extremely well suited in near real-time scenarios, high volume or multi-location projects. It can solve escalation problems for a fraction of the cost other solutions do and it has the flexibility of open source scenarios.

Oracle Data Integrator

Oracle Data Integrator is a good solution for daily data warehousing needs. It is less suitable for business requirements that demand frequent data updates. Accessing static data with Oracle Data Integrator is much simpler than trying to extract, transform, and load dynamic data. It requires a skilled development team to use, so it is more appropriate in long term solutions where a team will be available to manage the code than it is for a short term solution.

Pros

  • High volume/performance throughput environments
  • Low latency projects
  • Multiple consumers for the same data, reprocessing, long-lasting information
Juan Francisco Tavira profile photo
  • Oracle Data Integrator is a very powerful tool. The graphical user interface simplifies the generation of complex SQL statements which can be used to extract and transform large amounts of data.
  • ODI allows users to structure and schedule packages of code. It allows you to combine data extraction and transformation sequences based on business area, relationships, or whichever design technique best suits your organization.
  • ODI is able to provide detailed logging information and send out alerts via email, simplifying the process of monitoring and debugging issues.

Cons

  • Still a bit inmature, some clients have required recoding in the last few versions
  • New feaures coming very fast, several upgrades a year may be required
  • Not many commercial companies provide support

  • They need to work on the multiuser development environment and include the ability to comply with different kinds of SDLCs.

Kafka is quickly becoming core product of the organization, indeed it is replacing older messaging systems. No better alternatives found yet

Alternatives Considered

Kafka is faster and more scalable, also "free" as opensource (albeit we deploy using a commercial distribution). Infrastructure tends to be cheaper. On the other hand, projects must adapt to Kafka APIs that sometimes change and BAU increases until a major 1.x version comes out and adds stability to the product.

Chose Oracle Data Integrator for its compatibility and integration with Oracle Goldengate

Return on Investment

  • Easier deployment and horizontal scalability
  • Messaging cost reduction
  • Developments require adaptation and some paradigm shift to interoperate with Kafka
Juan Francisco Tavira profile photo
  • It quickened our development of interfaces.
  • Allow us to replace some interfaces based on TXT files with direct connection, and thus turning our environment more safe and SOX compliant.
