Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

As with any cloud service, the main advantage of Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing is the ability to scale up (and down, if required), thus reducing initial costs. You can start with a simple 1 CPU and 20Gb instance for free, and scale up to meet your requirements with some simple clicks. You do not have to worry about administrative tasks (OS installation and configuration, storage provisioning, software installation/upgrade, maintenance, etc.).

Task Factory

The single most used component in our Task Factory toolbelt is the Upsert component. The time this component has saved our developers alone paid for the product in the first few months. If you've ever attempted to use the native SSIS components to do upserts, or gone the route of writing your own upsert/merge statements, you'll appreciate this component. Another component that helps in the debugging stage is the Terminator Destination component. This component allows you to test your source inside a Data Flow without the need to having a destination.We have had our challenges with the Salesforce connection. It does not seem to process as efficiently as we'd like.

Pros

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

  • Quick and simple to deploy (less than 5 steps to create a new instance)
  • No administrative tasks (backup, re-sizing) required
Lisandro Fernigrini | TrustRadius Reviewer

Task Factory

  • The Slowly Changing Dimension Component saves us a huge amount if time compared to the native SSIS component.
  • JSON Transform is really useful to convert record and send it to rest API.
  • The advanced derived columns allow us to use really cool functions that are not available in the regular transforms.

Cons

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

  • None significant to be mentioned

Task Factory

  • When Microsoft upgraded our Dynamics 365 install from version 8 to 9, we delayed the upgrade for several months. Once we moved our dev platform to version 9, Task Factory stopped working. After we pushed every delay we reasonably could in prod, Task Factory had still not been updated to work with version 9 of Dynamics 365. In the interim we tried another product that had already been updated in lockstep with Microsoft. The Task Factory folks seemed to indicate that they knew about the problems when we called, and sent us a hotfix eventually after two or three months. However, the delay convinced us to go to another product.
  • Weird or incorrect metadata in Dynamics 365 caused problems with the SSIS job whenever field changes were made in Dynamics 365. While this might not be the fault of Task Factory per se, our replacement product doesn't have this issue.

Task Factory has become a key product for our use of doing ETL work in SSIS. Their custom SSIS components allow us to work simply on the data engineering side of things. We can ignore the lower level work needed to connect to disparate data sources. This allows us to work faster and provide more value to the business

You get almost all the features of Oracle Database, including the ability to deploy APEX applications, without having to worry about system, storage or database configuration and maintenance, backups, etc. Also, you can start for free and move up adding resources as you need.

Overall it went smoothly. Had a couple of gotchas with licensing and upgrading but nothing that really stopped us.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

Both Azure SQL Database and Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing offer a powerful and robust database platform. The advantage of Autonomous Transaction Processing is the ability to host APEX applications for free and without any special/complicated deployment or configuration process. Having a rapid development environment embedded for free was the main advantage for choosing Oracle as my cloud database provider.

Task Factory

ZappySys is an alternative provider that we tested. However, we found the ease of use, set up and installation to be much simplier and quicker using Task Factory. ZappySys has a number of the same connectors but are more difficult to setup and the GUI is not as intuitive and simple to use.

Return on Investment

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

  • Using the free tier allows me to develop and test the APEX app with no cost.
  • Changing it from a single-user to a department tool is simple.
Lisandro Fernigrini | TrustRadius Reviewer

Task Factory

  • We were able to support our developers with Task Factory features and reduce the development time by 40%.
  • Recently Task Factory has changed their pricing module and it seems to be pretty costly for our process. Our business team has started to evaluate whether this is worth it going forward.
