We have been able to implement Oracle Warehouse Builder for a department and as an enterprise solution. We have used it for years to transform data and clean bad data. All this means is that we consolidate the random spreadsheets, home-grown applications, flat-files, and anything else that users can manage to produce randomly. We can bring that junk together and scrub it so it's not only in one place but clean, too.
  • Connects to random sources
  • User friendly
  • Variables are kinda clunky
  • Auto population
The best place for Oracle Warehouse Builder is at the business IT level. It's not suited for business-level users. They are easy confused. One way to reduce the confusion for the developers is to set up the workspaces based on the requirements that are discovered in design sessions. Once this is complete, the implementation of Oracle Warehouse Builder can take flight and be successful.

We're using Oracle Warehouse Builder to offload data from Oracle databases, to transform and to load into operational reporting environment (operational data store) which is an another Oracle Database.
Oracle Warehouse Builder helps us to add meaning into operational raw data and to perform initial transformations for business users' requirements.
  • Easy transformation.
  • Easy implementation from Oracle to Oracle systems.
  • Ease of usage and easy to learn.
  • Starting component of metadata management.
  • User experience.
  • Supporting newer technologies.
  • Ease of operation.
If you plan to upgrade your databases to newer versions, you need to migrate your Oracle Warehouse Builder jobs to Oracle Data Integrator (fastest and easiest way) or an other ETL tool, because Oracle Warehouse Builder came to an end and does not support newer versions of databases as it is described in statement of direction.
There will be no major releases of Oracle Warehouse Builder (latest release is 11GR2 - 11.2.0.4), but bug resolving and minor releasing will continue.

It's used only within one department.
  • OWB has a very nice performance of ETL processing, as it uses Oracle database as a transformation engine. It's very intuitive and easy to use tool.
  • What I noticed is that sometimes OWB doesn't generate the best SQL in the package especially when there are a high number of source tables in the ETL. It would be nice if ETL developers were allowed to update the generated packages in the database directly.
  • Another thing - moving OWB ETLs from one database to another one could be easier - for example it would be nice to just copy the generated packages from one database to the other one without doing the deployment of these ETLs through OWB.
Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB) is best used for small to middle warehousing projects. In the past, it had a disadvantage compared to other ETL tools (like Informatica) working with non-Oracle sources or targets, but this was improved during the latest releases.

I have used Oracle Warehouse Builder for implementation of Data Extraction, Transformation and Load in my Project. It was used in the Telecom department and is extremely useful for transforming data for building reports for business users and downstream systems. It is a pretty simple ETL tool that provides all viable options required for building reports for data analysis for business intelligence problems.
  • Simplified user interface with all required ETL functions
  • Flexible and Efficient
  • Should include better automation for mapping transformations
Well suited to address simple and straight forward business problems. Has room for improvement from automation perspective and complex data transformation functions.

It is used for bringing data from a production database to a reporting database. Oracle Warehouse Builded (OWB) was supplied by Ellucian when the Banner production system was installed. It is mostly maintained by another company that is the outsourcing company for us - SICAS, but I use OWB to update some objects that are created locally for some specific business needs.
  • It is very well structured.
  • It creates pl/sql codes without the need to do it manually.
  • The visual design is pretty good.
  • No good learning material available.
  • I didn't see a training course for it.
  • It is not easy to learn.
If the data volume is big it is a good tool. In my organization the database it is used for is very small.
