Sandrine Riley
Senior Principle Product Manager

Oracle Data Integrator 12.2.1
makes its debut today, with new and enhanced functionality in many aspects of
its core capabilities. Take a look here for the latest details – and read on for some

Big Data

Back in
April we
proudly announced the availability of Oracle Data
Integrator for Big Data
. The release brought together a series of advanced Big Data updates and
features that Oracle Data Integration is rolling out for customers to help take
their Hadoop projects to the next level with support for Apache Spark, Apache
Pig, and orchestration using Oozie. Today, we continue to enhance this functionality by allowing users to
choose between Task and Session execution modes for Oozie workflow generation.

Lifecycle Management

We all
realize that the process for managing system software through its lifecycle
from the initial development to the implementation is important! In Oracle Data Integrator 12.2.1 release
management capabilities are introduced to provide a distinction between those
development and deployment environments and artifacts.

ODI Exchange

Ever wanted
a more community feel for ODI objects – including Global Knowledge
Modules? That is now possible through
the ODI Exchange which allows browsing, download, and install of global ODI
objects made available by Oracle, or other ODI users through Official of
Third-Party Update Centers.

Better Oracle Connectivity

Oracle Data
Integrator’s repertoire of Knowledge Modules is continually improved. This release features a Knowledge Module to
perform Partition Exchange Loading is available to allow users to swap
partitions as needed. For more on that
very subject view the A-Team Blog post:
Oracle Partition Exchange with Oracle Data Integrator (ODI)
. Improvements have also been made to the
Loading Knowledge Modules using External Tables, and the Data Pump Knowledge

More Data Integration Pillar
Integration – Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ)

This release adds a
new Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ) technology – meaning that it is
directly available in Topology and allows the creation of data servers,
physical schemas, and logical schemas for EDQ. This helps to tightly couple the various tools when in use together in
any project. In addition, the
OdiEnterpriseDataQuality tool was improved to support EDQ data servers through
Contexts and Logical Schemas.
