Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Data Integration Platform Cloud

We use Oracle Data Integration as an ETL tool to load data from Oracle EBS to our data warehouse. We use it across the organization. We used to have Informatica in the past. When we upgraded our OBIEE and BIAPPS, we had to implement ODI to comply with the latest versions of BIAPPS.
  • ODI uses ELT architecture, which enhances the load performance and is very scalable.
  • ODI is platform independent. It supports all platforms, hardware and operating systems.
  • It comes with pre-built integration, allowing immediate data replication, transformation, and data governance while ensuring data quality.
  • OnPrem connectivity Agent has issues sometimes. It needs improvement.
  • We encountered issues while moving a repository from one environment to another.
  • I would be nice to have more cloud adapters to connect to different saas applications.
  • We are able to connect to SaaS applications and bring that data to our data warehouse.
  • We don't have to worry about maintaining the infrastructure and upgrades.
  • The product is highly scalable. Our company acquires and divests businesses, in our case a cloud solution is very helpful to scale the system depending on the need.
Yes - I am a member of the North Central Oracle Applications Users Group.

The yearly conference at Chicago is very helpful for sharing knowledge and it always gives us insight into the future products, and it's a great platform to learn from our peers.
We are longtime ODI on-premise users. So, it was easy for us to migrate to the ODI cloud rather than implementing another solution.
I highly recommend the Oracle Data Integration Platform if you are using OBIEE as a reporting tool. ODI offers a large number of solutions. The on-premise product was expensive to implement and maintain. The cloud version is most suitable for small scale to large scale implementations.
