Oracle Financial Analytics for SAP Certified with Oracle Data Integrator EE
By Denis Gray on Jan 12, 2011
Two days ago Oracle announced the release of Oracle Financial Analytics for SAP. With the amount of press this has garnered in the past two days, there's a key detail that can't be missed. This release is certified with Oracle Data Integrator EE - now making the combination of Data Integration and Business Intelligence a force to contend with. Within the Oracle Press Release there were two important bullets:
· Oracle Financial Analytics for SAP includes a pre-packaged ABAP code compliant adapter and is certified with Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition to integrate SAP Financial Accounting data directly with the analytic application.
· Helping to integrate SAP financial data and disparate third-party data sources is Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition which delivers fast, efficient loading and transformation of timely data into a data warehouse environment through its high-performance Extract Load and Transform (E-LT) technology.
This is very exciting news, demonstrating Oracle's overall commitment to Oracle Data Integrator EE. This is a great way to start off the new year and we look forward to building on this momentum throughout 2011.
