Building your Data for Analytics

Extraction, Loading, and Transformation (ELT) is not only the heart, but also the highest cost element of any analytics implementation. Poorly implemented processes drive down data-load performance, while increasing the cost of implementation. To avoid the associated pitfalls, BIAS has developed a highly proven and best-practices based data integration approach that leverages product strengths to reduce development time, improve performance, and lower the ongoing administrative costs. BIAS delivers extensive expertise in designing, architecting, implementing, and managing Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), GoldenGate (GG), Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ), Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management (OEMM), Big Data Preparation (BDP), ODI CS, Data Integration Platform Cloud (DIPC), Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB), and Informatica based ELT/ETL processes that help customers start their critical initiatives with the right foundation and deliver them faster with consistency. We also help customers design and develop solutions to migrate from Oracle Warehouse Builder, which is now out of Premier Support, to ODI.

Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) is Oracle’s next generation, comprehensive, and high-performance data integration platform designed to support the large heterogeneous workloads including Big Data and complex highly available deployments. ODI has superior capabilities that foster high productivity, fast development cycle, and simple administration at a low overall total cost of ownership (TCO). ODI’s easy to use interface provides robust capabilities for developers and drives collaboration and consistency across the entire development team. ODI also integrates natively with Oracle GoldenGate (GG), an industry standard for high performance and fidelity replication to enable real-time analytics and reporting as well as flexible architectures that support high performance real-time and near real-time loads. ODI also handles Big Data workloads and provides native support for Hadoop, JSON, and XML. ODI and GG are both fully capable of managing data integration initiatives on-premise or on Cloud and also offers flexible deployment alternatives. ODI also replaces OWB’s capabilities and comes with a utility that helps with migration of existing OWB workloads to ODI.

Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ) provides a comprehensive set of data quality management capabilities such as data profiling, auditing, parsing and standardization, match and merge, case management, address verification and provides a robust governance framework. EDQ is also integrated with ODI to support complex ELT processing involving EDQ.

Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management (OEMM) is an industry leading metadata management tool that is increasingly critical to organizations having a large set of Oracle and 3rd party data sources that feed into reports being capabilities to their end users. OEMM harvests metadata from a large pool of source systems and the ETL and reporting tools and provides end-to-end lineage between such transactional systems to the processed information provided in the hands of users in a highly efficient manner that saves the organization the large hidden cost it incurs in the form of routinely taken poor decisions due to lack of clear understanding of detail behind the reports, conflicting understanding of users, and the confusion posed by poor trust in data. OEMM is also a key tool for governance and greatly increases quality of development and testing. OEMM provides robust impact analyses thereby improving productivity of report and ETL developers when they try to introduce changes into the system.
