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.

SSIS

  • SSIS is particularly well suited for jobs that need to be consistent, repeatable, and error managed.
  • Ongoing extract, transform, load [ETL] jobs that are scheduled or manual.
  • One-time ETL with complex datasets.
  • Migrations of large datasets.
SSIS is not well suited for small or simple datasets that can be copied or exported safely to flat files for import. It is possible to do this but would generally take longer to build in SSIS unless there was a good reason to .remove manual handling of the data in transport or the action needed to be testable/repeatable.

Pros

Oracle Data Integrator

  • Oracle Data Integrator nearly addresses every data issue that one can expect. Oracle Data Integrator is tightly integrated to the Oracle Suite of products. This is one of the major strengths of Oracle Data Integrator. Oracle Data Integrator is part of the Oracle Business Intelligence Applications Suite - which is highly used by various industries. This tool replaced Informatica ETL in Oracle Business Intelligence Applications Suite.
  • Oracle Data Integrator comes with many pre-written data packages. If one has to load data from Excel to Oracle Database, there is a package that is ready available for them - cutting down lot of effort on writing the code. Similarly, there are packages for Oracle to SQL, SQL to Oracle and all other possible combinations. Developers love this feature.
  • Oracle Data Integrator relies highly on the database for processing. This is actually an ELT tool rather than an ETL tool. It first loads all the data into target instance and then transforms it at the expense of database resources. This light footprint makes this tool very special.
  • The other major advantage of Oracle Data Integrator, like any other Oracle products, is a readily available developer pool. As all Oracle products are free to download for demo environments, many organizations prefer to play around with a product before purchasing it. Also, Oracle support and community is a big advantage compared to other vendors.

SSIS

  • SSIS works very well pulling well-defined data into SQL Server from a wide variety of data sources.
  • It comes free with the SQL Server so it is hard not to consider using it providing you have a team who is trained and experienced using SSIS.
  • When SSIS doesn't have exactly what you need you can use C# or VBA to extend its functionality.

Cons

Oracle Data Integrator

  • ODI does not have an intuitive user interface. It is powerful, but difficult to figure out at first. There is a significant learning curve between usability, proficiency, and mastery of the tool.
  • ODI contains some frustrating bugs. It is Java based and has some caching issues, often requiring you to restart the program before you see your code changes stick.
  • ODI does not have a strong versioning process. It is not intuitive to keep an up to date repository of versioned code packages. This can create versioning issues between environments if you do not have a strong external code versioning process.

SSIS

  • SSIS memory usage can be quite high particularly when SSI and SQL server are on the same machine
  • SSIS is not available on any environment other than Microsoft Windows
  • SSIS does not function with any database engine back-end other than Microsoft SQL Server

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.

Some features should be revised or improved, some tools (using it with Visual Studio) of the toolbox should be less schematic and somewhat more flexible. Using for example, the CSV data import is still very old-fashioned and if the data format changes it requires a bit of manual labor to accept the new data structure

If you use any of the Microsoft tools, it is easy to get using and understand since it uses Visual Studio and SSMS to work with. There are extensions you can get and some of those can be difficult to work with but usually they slide in nicely. The one thing to understand though is there is some installation and configuration on the SQL Server side that can take some time.

You can, of course, accidentally make sloppy code or workflows but it’s not a tools issue if you run packages in an inefficient way. With a company of our size, we never had any performance issues but I can imagine for larger companies that this will have a greater focus.

The support, when necessary, is excellent. But beyond that, it is very rarely necessary because the user community is so large, vibrant and knowledgable, a simple Google query or forum question can answer almost everything you want to know. You can also get prewritten script tasks with a variety of functionality that saves a lot of time.

The implementation may be different in each case, it is important to properly analyze all the existing infrastructure to understand the kind of work needed, the type of software used and the compatibility between these, the features that you want to exploit, to understand what is possible and which ones require integration with third-party tools

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Data Integrator

I have used the Pentaho Data Integrator ETL tools in different projects with the SQL Server Integration Services product from the Microsoft product family. Oracle Data Integrator ETL product is efficient in projects where Oracle databases are heavily used. The end-user interface of SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is quite simple and straightforward. It also has an active user community. You can find solutions in these communities for the problems you are experiencing. Since the Pentaho Data Integrator ETL is an open-source application, you can bring your ETL design costs to a very reasonable level. This project will contribute positively to your expenses.

SSIS

Look for where you are going to load the data and from where are you extracting it. A lot of those who sell you the DB already have tools for ETL. I have heard good things at an enterprise level from great colleagues about Informatica, but honestly, I prefer SSIS.Although I did like TIBCO Jaspersoft and it can be mixed with TIBCO Spotfire for data analysis. If your ERP is SAP, then you must keep in mind using SAP BusinessObjects. As for free tools, and if you have a great and constant team of scripting (Perl, Python) engineers, then you can think about going open source.

Return on Investment

Oracle Data Integrator

  • Lead time to complete data integration and transformation project was reduced due to Oracle Data Integrator tools that helped in setting up transformations relatively quickly once it was set up.
  • Reduced lead time helped in reducing project cost as less resources were spent in data conversion project.
  • Overall data consolidation project resulted in quick integration of data from varied DBMS and data sources.

SSIS

  • I use SSIS to automate tasks that I'm repeatedly asked to do. "Hey, can you go into the system and close any open orders that we've fully filled?" Sure....then I schedule a package to do that for me every hour so I'm never asked again. It saves me time, which gives value to the company.
  • It removes the risk of human error. When people build files and send them, there's the risk that it doesn't happen the same way every time or gets forgotten. With SSIS, you spend some up front time building a process, but then you deploy it and forget it (unless it emails you that there was an error. You are putting error handling in your ETL, right?). Very repeatable and consistent business solution.
