Recap of Oracle GoldenGate 12c and Oracle Data Integrator 12c Launch Webcast

Last week we had a great video webcast for Oracle GoldenGate 12c and Oracle Data Integrator 12c. Our development executives, Brad Adelberg and Tim Hall,  talked about the new features and how the new release helps with delivering future-ready data integration solutions with extreme performance and high IT productivity.

On-Demand Video Webcast: Introducing 12c for Oracle Data Integration

In previous blogs we have talked about the new features of Oracle GoldenGate 12c and Oracle Data Integrator 12c, so I am not going to repeat them here. But worth repeating are what our customers and partners say about the new 12c release.

SolarWorld’s Senior Database Administrator, Russ Toyama was in the studio with our executives for the launch webcast, and Russ discussed their GoldenGate implementation for SolarWorld's manufacturing process. SolarWorld is the largest U.S. solar panel manufacturer for more than 35 years and needed operational intelligence to continuously improve the quality of its products, while ensuring the systems operate with high performance and stability.

SolarWorld uses GoldenGate to move data from multiple manufacturing databases into a single decision support system database in real time, freeing up the OLTP systems for transaction processing, which improves their performance and stability. The DSS database is very flexible in meeting reporting needs, and provides a comprehensive view of multiple manufacturing processes. This provides the traditional roles of reporting and engineering analysis to continuously improve product quality, yield and efficiency, and enables real time monitoring of the production manufacturing process. Using this real-time monitoring capability SolarWorld is able to detect the deviations from the norm right away, and take action to remedy or understand the situation. This not only improves production quality, but also improves cost management. The manufacturing process is a series of steps building upon the previous, so if there is an issue, it needs to be corrected as soon as possible to prevent waste and reduce manufacturing costs.

For GoldenGate 12c we heard from Surren Partabh, CTO for Technology Services for BT. Surren explained the role of Oracle GoldenGate for their private cloud initiative and how they have improved customer experience and availability, while managing costs as well.  Surren highlighted that Oracle's data integration product family is one of the cornerstones for BT"s cloud migration project and enable to migrate to cloud simply, and in an agile manner. BT used GoldenGate to build a replication hub to help with the migration from legacy systems to the cloud with a reliable fallback strategy. Surren also commented on the tight integration between GoldenGate 12c and Oracle Data Integrator 12c,  saying that it is a "step in the right direction" as it simplifies the actual installation, configuration, management, and monitoring of solutions. You can watch the interview with BT's Surren Partabh here.

In the launch webcast we also heard from Mark Rittman, CTO of Rittman Mead Consulting. Mark talked about the Oracle Data Integrator 12c new features in great depth, given that he was closely involved with the Beta testing program. Mark shared his opinion that the new flow-based design interface is the most critical feature of this 12c release and will bring major productivity gains for developers. He added that interoperability with Oracle Warehouse Builder for easier migration and tighter integration with Oracle GoldenGate are very valuable for customers. Mark also discussed the new release of Oracle BI Applications and how its use of Oracle Data Integrator for data movement and transformations simplifies life for Oracle BI Apps customers.  The complete interview with Mark Rittman is available for you as well.

If you missed the launch webcast last week, I hope you take the time to watch it on demand and discover how Oracle has changed the data integration and replication technology space with Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c.
