Data Integration Projects: A Method To Properly Estimate Development Time
By Christophe Dupupet on Jan 12, 2010
George Verveniotis is a Senior Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse Consultant for Oracle in Greece.
He was recently responsible for the design and implementation of a very large data-integration project for a major telecommunication provider. The main purpose of the project was to develop with ODI the necessary synchronization and integration between Oracle Peoplesoft and Oracle e-Business Suite.
One key challenge for any data integration project is to properly estimate how much time will be required for a successful implementation.
Combining his extensive experience with academic research, George has condensed his recommendations in, which will detail the best practices you will need to be as successful as he is.
I must admit that he mentions shortcomings and pitfalls that I have personally witnessed in too many integration projects.
Thanks George for sharing this with us!
