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
(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.

Truly trusted contact center where the effective solution is always guaranteed. It is not a one-off fix to a specific data integration or management problem. It is a permanent and scalable solution to manage all of your data under a unified environment. Easy to use, great performance, used it for our internal data warehouse. Easy to build and connect to our data sources such as Salesforce, Netsuite, and Marketo.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review It supports a wide variety of connectors (Systems/endpoints) It provides great flexibility for developers as it not only has a lot of predefined ready to use the function but also provides the ability to use complex java code within the platform. Great tool if you have good developers available. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review The print and export functionality are missing in the Community version which frustrates a lot of our clients as well as internal users. The learning curve is very steep for all Talend products including DQ. Lack of easy to create workflows for jobs that can be repeated. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

At this moment the usability of Talend Data Quality is optimal, too bad I cannot say the same in the first three months, it was always a problem due to its steep learning curve, but what matters is being able to use it effectively at this precise moment.

Talend Data Quality gave us direct help in the learning process and prevented us from taking many more months to adapt and I appreciate this from the heart, I think that thanks to the support we can have very detailed reports that help increase the use of Talend Data Quality in the company.

I have used
Google Data Prep quite a bit. We use Google Cloud Platform across our organization. The tools are very comparable in what they offer. I would say Data Prep has a slight edge in usability and a cleaner UI, but both of the tools have comparable toolsets.

The engine with which it works to process a lot of information is striking, the comparison also being the connectors it has for different RDBMS, which other tools do not count as they are GNU licenses or community editions. The friendly and intuitive environment is what catches the eye. that's why I choose Talend over any other tool
Read full review Return on Investment From a business intelligence perspective, it allows us to provide users with the necessary data and information to make informed decisions. Compared with other Oracle products and licensing, I do not think the pricing was unreasonable. It is part of a larger install, so for ease of use, we purchased it with other Oracle products. Read full review Definitely simplified the development efforts on our end in doing the data integration, saving lots of human hours. Small company, so cost could be a problem for these services, but works so far. Read full review ScreenShots
