during OpenWorld, my colleague Madhu provided a summary of the first 3 days of the Data Integration
track in his blog post: Data Integration
At OOW14 -Recapping days 1,2 and 3. Today I would like to
mention a few key sessions we presented on Thursday.
We kicked off the last
day of OpenWorld with the cloud topic. In the ‘Oracle Data Integration: A Crucial Ingredient for Cloud Integration
[CON7926]’ session Julien Testut from Data Integration product management team presented with
Sumit Sarkar from Progress DataDirect. Julien provided an overview of the various
data integration solutions for cloud deployments, including integration between
databases and applications hosted on cloud, as well as loading cloud BI infrastructures. Sumit
followed Julien with a live demo using Oracle Data Integrator and the Progress
DataDirect JDBC drivers for loading and transforming data on Amazon Redshift,
and extracting data from Salesforce.com. All of us in the audience were amazed that the
demo worked seamlessly using only the OpenWorld wi-fi network.
Oracle GoldenGate we had 2 key sessions on Thursday:
Achieving Zero Downtime During
Oracle Applications Upgrades and System Migrations was in the Fusion
Middleware AppAdvantage track and featured Oracle GoldenGate’s zero downtime upgrades and migration solution with customer
Symantec and partner Pythian. In this session, Doug Reid presented GoldenGate's 3 different deployment models for zero downtime application upgrades. In his slides, Doug highlighted GoldenGate’s certified solution for
Siebel CRM, and mentioned the support for zero downtime application upgrade for JD
Edwards and Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) as well. Following Doug, Symantec’s Rohit Muttepawar, came to stage and talked about their database migration project for their critical licensing database. And Pythian’s Gleb Otochkin and Luke Davies presented how using Oracle GoldenGate in a 6-node active-active replication environment helped Western Union in achieving application releases with zero downtime, database patches and upgrades with zero downtime, and a real-time reporting database with no impact to online users.
other key GoldenGate session was Managing and Monitoring Oracle GoldenGate. Joe deBuzna in the
GoldenGate product management team provided an overview of the new monitoring and
management capabilities included in the Oracle GoldenGate Plug-in for
Enterprise Manager, and Oracle GoldenGate Monitor. Both of these products are included in the Oracle Management Pack for Oracle GoldenGate license. With the new 12c release, they can now control the starting, stopping and configuration of
existing Oracle GoldenGate processes, and include many new metrics that strengthen how users can monitor their Oracle GoldenGate deployments.
|The Data Integration track at OpenWorld closed with " Insight into Action: Business Intelligence Applications and Oracle Data Integrator". Jayant Mahto from ODI Development team, and Gurcan Orhan from Wipro Technologies focused on the Oracle BI Applications latest release that embeds Oracle Data Integrator for data loading and transformations, and provides the option to use Oracle GoldenGate for real-time data feeds into the reporting environment. The session highlighted how the new Oracle BI Apps release provides greater
strategic insight quickly, efficiently, and with a low total cost of
ownership, as well as the role Oracle Data Integrator as the data integration foundation. Jayant and Gurcan presented how Oracle Data Integrator enables users to increase IT
efficiency and reduce costs by increasing data transparency, easing
setup and maintenance, and improving real-time reporting.
In case you missed it, I'd like to remind you on the press announcement that went out on September 29th and gives a summary of the key developments in the Fusion Middleware product
family and Oracle's data integration offering. As
mentioned in the press announcement, we have now a new offering for metadata
management. An overview of this product was delivered in the “Oracle Data Integration and Metadata
Management for the Seamless Enterprise [CON7923] session. We will post a dedicated
blog on this topic later in the week. Stay tuned for more on that.
