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.

Xactly Connect

When the client has source data in Salesforce, Workday or flat files, it works really well. If the client has too much data, it can be really slow or require lots of preprocessing. It's often better to do as much of the calculations as you can in the configuration rather than on the Xactly Connect side. So that regular comp admins with Incent Connect training but no Xactly Connect are able to make changes.

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.

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.

Xactly Connect

  • SQL isn't the same syntax in Connect as it is in Sequal Server Management Studio, making it difficult for communities outside of Xactly to help with certain issues.
  • Sometimes the scheduling part of the tool does not work as expected, but over all it is consistent.

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.

Xactly is a very helpful tool ensuring appropriate and correct data is used when calculating commissions. The interface loads timely, but it is not intuitive to use. The learning curve to be proficient in Xactly takes a significant amount of time.

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.
