Download, and share with your clients, this recent 2015 DAO Research Paper: Data Integration Platforms for Big Data and the Enterprise which offers customer perspectives on IBM, Informatica, and Oracle solutions.
As it points out, “As an ODI developer, I am a Big Data developer without having to understand the underpinnings of Big Data. That is a pretty powerful capability.” And “some differences in the offerings of IBM and Informatica as compared to those of Oracle are fundamental.” For example, “Customers cited 30% to 60% greater developer productivity using Oracle versus traditional Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) tools from Informatica and IBM, based on key architectural differences...”
And if you deploy ODI (Oracle Data Integrator) on the Oracle BDA (Big Data Appliance) with the Oracle Big Data Connectors, this is likely to be a far lower cost software plus hardware solution for high volume, high speed ETL as compared to these other solutions.
