We are pleased to announce a new
release to Oracle Data Integrator (ODI):

Oracle Data Integrator (ODI)
provides a flexible and heterogeneous data integration platform for data
processing that enables you to transform, enrich, and govern data for faster,
more informed decision-making. In this release of Oracle
Data Integrator, we have further extended our capabilities in 4 major areas:
Big Data, Cloud, Lifecycle Management and Developer Productivity. Cloud and Big
Data remain key investment areas and ensure that Oracle Data Integrator will
continue to accompany customers throughout their technological
transformation. Please visit the
following two links for more information on Oracle Data Integrator (OD):

Big Data investments include Spark Streaming support, Apache Kafka
and Apache Cassandra support, enhanced support around Hadoop Complex Types and
Storage Formats in addition to enhancements to ODI’s Big Data Configuration
Wizard. Through its unique decoupling of the Logical and Physical design of Mappings,
Oracle Data Integrator is the only Data Integration tool on the market giving
developers the flexibility to design Mappings with a generic business logic and
then generate code for as many data processing technologies (Hive, Spark, Spark
Streaming etc.) as they want. This
provides a great platform for the ever changing and improved world around Big

Cloud investments include RESTful Service support, where Oracle Data Integrator can now
invoke RESTful Service. Data chunking
and pagination are also supported for uploading or downloading larger payloads. Additionally, Business Intelligence Cloud
Service (BICS)
Knowledge Modules is now supported out of the box in Oracle Data Integrator.
You can define Business Intelligence Cloud Service connectivity in Topology,
reverse engineer metadata and load data into it just like any other target data

Lifecycle Management investments include Git Support as an external
version control system. Other
improvements to the overall lifecycle management functionality have been made,
such as the enhanced merge capability with auto-merging of changes and
simplified conflict resolution.

Developer Productivity investments include a superior Knowledge
Module Framework that helps maximize flexibility and minimize maintenance. You can now inherit steps from a Knowledge
Module into another Knowledge module and override steps like in object oriented
programming languages. There are brand
new template languages and syntaxes introduced providing greater control over
the generated code.
