An ELT alternative to Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) ?

 

Companies often have difficulties accelerating their digital transformations using traditional data integration solutions. These solutions tend to get more complex and less adaptable for new technologies. To meet new challenges, companies now need to be agile when handling projects with various types of new technologies. They also need to speed up the "time to market", another key factor of success for these data integration projects.


Thanks to its unified solution and scalable technology, Stambia allows you to accelerate and industrialize your digital transformation while modernizing your information system, just in a few clicks!

Your questions about Oracle Data Integrator?

How to deal with Big Data, NoSQL, Web services / API projects?

A traditional data integration platform such as Oracle Data Integrator (formerly Sunopsis) is designed (and is very suitable) to process data in tabular form (tables, flat files) with very good performance levels.

However, when dealing with hierarchical structures such as XML, JSON, productivity or performance difficulties can arise. Indeed, the tabular oriented vision means that it may be necessary, for each hierarchical level, to develop an interface (a mapping), then to group these interfaces into a package.

The phenomenon can also increase, when business teams launch e-commerce, CRM, PIM initiatives... these projects requiring the usage of Web services, unstructured data and/or NoSQL databases.

Therefore it may be difficult to handle a Big Data initiative.

Do you need to simplify your data integration solution?

AdobeStock 74324492 530

Traditional data integration solutions may tend to complicate their architecture or the way to develop as soon as new third-party technologies appear on the market.

You may encounter challenges with your current solution:

  • The need to install an Oracle Weblogic application server?
  • A multiplication of technological solutions necessary to cover the entire spectrum of Data Integration: ETL, ESB, CDC, WebLogic, Fusion Middleware?
  • A usage of third-party components to complete the basic features (Golden Gate)?
  • Complex mappings and packages?
 

Would you like to reduce your ownership costs?

The data integration solution is at the heart of the company's data exchanges. Data processing is disrupted by new technologies and methods. It is now possible to process more and more data, and a wide variety of them. Along with these evolutions, it is necessary to ensure the digital transformation of the company.


It is therefore essential to have a solution with a flexible and readable pricing model, in line with these new challenges.


Your bill increases from year to year, but you don't have any real services in addition?

Stambia offers Linear Ownership Costs: a pricing system based on the number of designers, which smooths out the cost of ownership over time.

Having trouble reading the cost of your current solution?

Stambia offers Readable Ownership Costs: 3 simple offers, each based on the development effort.

The rise of the Cloud and the multiplication of manipulated technologies increases your cost of ownership?

Stambia offers ownership costs Adapted to today's world: Stambia's model, which is not based on the transformation power, or the number of source and target components, makes it possible to remove all obstacles to the development of new projects.

Do you have any challenges to migrate to the latest ODI version ?

AdobeStock 56329139 Echelle

You may have problems migrating to new versions of your current ODI solution. The new version brings structural changes because it wants to integrate as well as possible into its ecosystem (software from the same publisher). All this may be at the expense of your independence and productivity.

Automatic upgrades are no longer possible? Is it necessary to set up a complex process, which requires full technical and functional tests?

Perhaps you are asking yourself: should we migrate to the latest version? Should we choose another solution and redevelop everything? Or more simply, can we find an alternative solution that is close to the current solution and that allows us to migrate in a (almost) transparent way?
