Recap of the Data Integration Track at Oracle OpenWorld 2014

Data Integration track at OpenWorld 2014 contained important product announcements, many content-rich presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on-labs around big data analytics, data governance, and cloud.

On Monday, Jeff Pollock, VP of Product Management for Oracle Data Integration presented the session "Unlocking Big Data Silos in the Cloud", where he gave an overview of Oracle’s data integration offering and explained several best practices and architectural approaches to implement a full or partial cloud solutions. He presented real life example such as the UK Conservatory using Oracle Data Integration in the cloud. Following Jeff's session came product feature updates for Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle GoldenGate. Our PM team demonstrated that in addition to integrating the products tightly and expanding products’ heterogeneous capabilities, there are several key features supporting cloud environments and big data analytics solutions. Customer testimonials from various well known brands like DIRECTV, Canon and LinkedIn further demonstrated Oracle’s success in the data integration market.

On Tuesday, product updates continued with Oracle Enterprise Data Quality. Audience learned how Oracle is now extending its capabilities considerably into the metadata management space to help govern and bring transparency to data within the organization. Which brings us to the new product announcement I mentioned earlier: Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management, is a new addition to the Oracle Data Integration product family. We launched it at the beginning of this week but many lucky OpenWorld attendees were able to learn about it in the data integration sessions and demo grounds. This new product helps organization looking to seriously tackle data governance, productivity improvement and lifecycle management challenges. To learn more about it, I invite you to attend our upcoming webcast: Big Data Governance and Metadata Management on Thursday, October 30th at 10am PT.

On Wednesday "Tapping into the Big Data Reservoir with all Data" session with Jeff Pollock was a big hit for big data market followers. Jeff presented how customers can implement a big data reservoir using Oracle GoldenGate for real-time transactional data feed into the reservoir and Oracle Data Integrator for data transformations within the reservoir.

We kicked off the last day of OpenWorld with the cloud topic. In the Oracle Data Integration: A Crucial Ingredient for Cloud Integration’ 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.

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 from the PM team 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.

The other key GoldenGate session on Thursday 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. 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.

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.

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

Originally Published on Data Integration Blog

Author: Irem Radzik, Senior Principal Product Director, Oracle

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. 

If you missed the webcast you can watch it on demand via the following page:
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 (DSS) 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 enables 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 tighter 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 OWB for easier migration and tight 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.

Organizations that want to use IT as a strategic point of differentiation prefer Oracle’s complete application offering to drive better business performance and optimize their IT investments. These enterprise applications are in the center of business operations and they contain critical data that needs to be accessed continuously, as well as analyzed and acted upon in a timely manner. These systems also need to operate with high-performance and availability, which means analytical functions should not degrade applications performance, and even system maintenance and upgrades should not interrupt availability.

Oracle’s data integration products, Oracle Data Integrator, Oracle GoldenGate, and Oracle Enterprise Data Quality, provide the core foundation for bringing data from various business-critical systems to gain a broader, unified view. As a more advance offering to 3rd party products, Oracle’s data integration products facilitate real-time reporting for Oracle Applications without impacting application performance, and provide ability to upgrade and maintain the system without taking downtime.

Oracle GoldenGate is certified for Oracle Applications, including E-Business Suite, Siebel CRM, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards, for moving transactional data in real-time to a dedicated operational reporting environment. This solution allows the app users to offload the resource-heavy queries to the reporting instance(s), reducing CPU utilization, improving OLTP performance, and extending the lifetime of existing IT assets. In addition, having a dedicated reporting instance with up-to-the-second transactional data allows optimizing the reporting environment and even decreasing costs as GoldenGate can move only the required data from expensive mainframe environments to cost-efficient open system platforms. 


With real-time data replication capabilities GoldenGate is also certified to enable application upgrades and database/hardware/OS migration without impacting business operations. GoldenGate is certified for Siebel CRM, Communications Billing and Revenue Management and JD Edwards for supporting zero downtime upgrades to the latest app version. GoldenGate synchronizes a parallel, upgraded system with the old version in real time, thus enables continuous operations during the process. Oracle GoldenGate is also certified for minimal downtime database migrations for Oracle E-Business Suite and other key applications. GoldenGate’s solution also minimizes the risk by offering a failback option after the switchover to the new environment. Furthermore, Oracle GoldenGate’s bidirectional active-active data replication is certified for Oracle ATG Web Commerce to enable geographically load balancing and high availability for ATG customers.

For enabling better business insight, Oracle Data Integration products power Oracle BI Applications with high performance bulk and real-time data integration. Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) is embedded in Oracle BI Applications version 11.1.1.7.1 and helps to integrate data end-to-end across the full BI Applications architecture, supporting capabilities such as data-lineage, which helps business users identify report-to-source capabilities. ODI is integrated with Oracle GoldenGate and provides Oracle BI Applications customers the option to use real-time transactional data in analytics, and do so non-intrusively. By using Oracle GoldenGate with the latest release of Oracle BI Applications, organizations not only leverage fresh data in analytics, but also eliminate the need for an ETL batch window and minimize the impact on OLTP systems.

You can learn more about Oracle Data Integration products latest 12c version in our upcoming launch webcast and access the app-specific free resources in the new Data Integration for Oracle Applications Resource Center.

Data Integration 12c Raising the Big Data Roof at Oracle OpenWorld

Author: Dain Hansen, Director, Oracle

It was an exciting OpenWorld 2013 for us in the Data Integration track. Our theme this year was all about ‘being future ready’ - previewing one of our biggest releases this year: Oracle Data Integration 12c. Just this week we followed up with this preview by announcing the general availability of 12c release for Oracle’s key data integration products: Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c. The new release delivers extreme performance, increase IT productivity, and simplify deployment, while helping IT organizations to keep pace with new data-oriented technology trends including cloud computing, big data analytics, real-time business intelligence.

Mark Hurd's keynote on day one set the tone for the Data Integration sessions. Mark focused on big data analytics and the changing consumer expectations. Especially real-time insight is a key theme for Oracle overall and data integration products. In Mark Hurd's keynote we heard from key customers, such as Airbus and Thomson Reuters, how real-time analysis of operational data including machine data creates value, in some cases even saves lives. Thomas Kurian gave a deeper look into Oracle's big data and fast data solutions.

In the initial lead Data Integration track session - Brad Adelberg, VP of Development, presented Oracle’s Data Integration 12c product strategy based on key trends from the initial OpenWorld keynotes. Brad talked about how Oracle's data integration products address the new data integration requirements that evolved with cloud computing, big data, and changing consumer expectations and how they set the key themes in our products’ road map. Brad explained why and how fast-time to value, high-performance and future-ready solutions is the top focus areas for product development. If you were not able to attend OpenWorld or this session I recommend reading the white paper: Five New Data Integration Requirements and How to Meet them with Oracle Data Integration, which provides an in-depth look into how Oracle addresses the new trends in the DI market.

Following Brad’s session, Nick Wagner provided in depth review of Oracle GoldenGate’s latest features and roadmap. Nick discussed how Oracle GoldenGate’s tight integration with Oracle Database sets the product apart from the competition. We also heard that heterogeneity of the product is still a major focus for GoldenGate’s development and there will be more news on that front when there is a major release.

After GoldenGate’s product strategy session, Denis Gray from the PM team presented Oracle Data Integrator’s product strategy session, talking about the latest and greatest on ODI. Another good session was delivered by long-time GoldenGate users, Comcast.  Jason Hurd and Amit Patel of Comcast talked about the various use cases they deploy Oracle GoldenGate throughout their enterprise, from database upgrades, feeding reporting systems, to active-active database synchronization.  The Comcast team shared many good tips on how to use GoldenGate for both zero downtime upgrades and active-active replication with conflict management requirement.

One of our other important goals we had this year for the Data Integration track at OpenWorld was hearing from our customers. We ended day 1 on just that, with a wonderful award ceremony for Oracle Excellence Awards for Oracle Fusion Middleware Innovation. The ceremony was held in the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Congratulations to Royal Bank of Scotland and Yalumba Wine Company, the winners in the Data Integration category. You can find more information on the award and the winners in our previous blog post: 2013 Oracle Excellence Awards for Fusion Middleware Innovation…

Mainly, Oracle GoldenGate and Oracle Data Integrator are used to feed their data warehouse – providing a real-time data integration solution that feeds transactional data to their analytics system in minutes to enable improved decision making with timely, accurate data for their business users. Oracle Data Integrator’s in-database transformation capabilities and its ability to integrate with Oracle GoldenGate for real-time data capture is the foundation of this implementation. This solution makes it such that changes happening in the analytics systems are available the same day they are deployed on the operational system with 100% data quality guaranteed. Additionally, the solution has helped to reduce their operational database size from 150GB to 10GB. Impressive! Now what if I told you this solution was built in 3 months and had a less than 6 month return on investment? That’s outstanding!

The Yalumba Wine Company is situated in the Barossa Valley of Australia. It is the oldest family owned winery in Australia with a unique way of aging their wines in specially crafted 100 liter barrels. Did you know that “Yalumba” is Aboriginal for “all the land around”? The Yalumba Wine Company is growing rapidly, and was in need of introducing a more modern standard to the existing manufacturing processes to meet globalization demands, overall time-to-market, and better operational efficiency objectives of product development. The Yalumba Wine Company worked with a partner, Bristlecone to develop a unique solution whereby Oracle Data Integrator is leveraged to pull data from Salesforce.com and JD Edwards, in addition to their other pre-existing source systems, for consumption into their data warehouse. They have emphasized the overall ease of developing integration workflows with Oracle Data Integrator. The solution has brought better visibility for the business users, shorter data loading and transformation performance to their data warehouse with rapid incorporation of new data sources, and a solid future-proof foundation for their organization. Moving forward, they plan on leveraging more from Oracle’s Data Integration portfolio. Terrific!

Keste Blog Series: Integrated Cloud Solutions - Bridging the Integration Divide across Cloud and On-Premise Applications

By Sri Ayyeppen, Keste CTO and Co-Founder

I recently authored a whitepaper entitled, "Migrating Applications to Engineered Systems: A Strategic Roadmap to a Cloud Integrated Platform," which discusses how companies can capture significant business impact through an integrated cloud-based solution. Over the course of this blog series, I’d share some of these findings with you and will also hone in on use cases with organizations looking to take advantage of integration with applications, especially Oracle Applications, Fusion Applications, custom Oracle Applications, among others.

Many companies are taking advantage of the proliferation of cloud-based SaaS applications (Salesforce®, Workday®, etc.), yet the need for on-premise applications isn’t going away. In order to find a solution for integrating across applications and platforms, companies need to take a broader, comprehensive and standardized approach to bridging this divide.

An integrated cloud solution is a great fit for companies that need more out of their applications environment. For example, companies that need to incrementally expand their IT application footprint, or companies that need to quickly and confidently scale their IT infrastructure without impact to performance (e.g., SaaS companies whose products depend on IT for delivery). Integrated cloud solutions can take many forms, but most often I find clients need to link their existing IT applications together, such as:

  • Existing cloud applications—like social media, networking, or marketing sites
  • On-premise applications—like HR, ERP, service, and support programs
  • Mobile apps—for smart phones, tablets, or other mobile devices
  • Partner or business-to-business applications—connecting vendors, suppliers, or distributors
  • Devices—any end-point that could potentially integrate with a cloud such as cars, satellite receivers, smart phones, HVAC systems, communication or utility grids, etc.


Over the past several years of working with customers to develop integrated cloud solutions, I have found that it's very important to start by documenting the current and future business use cases that the IT environment must support. Understanding these business requirements allows me to analyze both the business and data integration needs for my clients:

  • Business integration needs—understand the required service processes such as orchestration, mediation, and service routing to meet key business requirements/outcomes.
  • Data integration needs—analyze the transactional processes such as batch vs. real-time, ETL, and data replication requirements to ensure the right data is passed to the right application at the right time.

This leads me to a key step in supporting my customers’ integrated cloud journey—developing an IT reference architecture. This ‘IT blueprint’ ensures that the integrated cloud solution will meet both current and the future business needs. The reference architecture shows optimal transaction design patterns and the configurations of hardware and software. It also provides a well-defined feedback loop that allows IT staff to monitor and adjust transaction parameters as necessary.

I also find the reference architecture as a useful tool to determine the best product mix for organizations looking at cloud and on-premise integration, including:

  • Oracle SOA Suitewhich offers the middleware tools and capabilities to create a fully scalable, integrated cloud-to-cloud or cloud-to premise platform, such as Oracle API Gateway for external cloud communications, Oracle Service Bus for internal service virtualization, and Oracle Coherence to speed data transaction processing.
  • Oracle BPM Suite—which supports design and implementation of all process types and case management flows, delivering immediate and impactful ROI and driving enhanced customer experience and intelligent operations.
  • Oracle Data Integration products like Oracle GoldenGate, which offers real-time data integration, transactional data replication, and data comparison across heterogeneous systems.

And for organizations with Oracle Applications or custom applications built on Oracle technologies, there are obvious advantages to leveraging Oracle for cloud integration—these include lower total cost of operation (TCO), a standardized platform, and a proven solution built on industry best practices, among others.

After helping dozens of companies implement integrated cloud solutions, we have found that we can deliver these new architectures in as little as two to three months, making the leap to this next generation IT solution fast, without disrupting current business capabilities.

In the coming weeks, I’ll continue my discussion on the business value that integrated cloud computing can provide by showcasing a series of customer experiences.  We'll discuss specific use cases for cloud integration deployment based on real world implementations like those at Aramark, JDSU, and other organizations. The series will continue to focus on implementation strategies and best practices while highlighting the business impact of this new technology paradigm.

Faster Trip to Innovation with Simplified Data Integration: Sabre Holdings Case Study

Author: Irem Radzik, Director of Product Marketing, Data Integration, Oracle

In today’s fast-paced, competitive environment, IT teams are under pressure to deliver technology solutions for many critical business initiatives as fast as possible. When the focus is on speed, it can be easy to continue to use old style, point-to-point custom scripts that grow organically to the point where they are unmanageable and too costly to maintain. As data volumes, data sources, and end users grow, uncoordinated data integration efforts create significant inefficiencies for both IT and business users. In addition to losing IT productivity due to maintaining spaghetti architecture, data integrity becomes a concern as well. Errors caused by inconsistent, data and manual data entry can prove very costly for companies and disrupt business activities.

Many industry leaders recognize now that data should be moved in an automated and reliable manner across all platforms to have one version of the truth. By simplifying their data integration architecture and standardizing on a centralized approach, IT teams now accelerate time to market. Especially, using a centralized, shared-service approach brings agility, increases IT productivity, and frees up resources for innovation.

One such industry leader that simplified its data integration architecture is Sabre Holdings. Sabre Holdings provides distribution and technology solutions for the travel industry, and is a winner of Oracle Excellence Awards for Fusion Middleware in 2011 in the data integration category. I had the pleasure to host Sabre Holdings on a public webcast and discuss their data integration best practices for data warehousing. In this webcast Sabre’s Amjad Saeed, presented how the company reduced complexity by consolidating systems and standardizing development on Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle GoldenGate for its global data warehouse development team. With Oracle’s complete real-time data integration solution, Sabre also streamlined support and maintenance operations, achieved real-time view in the execution of the integration processes, and can manage the data warehouse and business intelligence solution performance on demand. By reducing complexity and leveraging timely market insights, the company was able to decrease time to market by 40%.

You can now listen to the webcast on demand: Sabre Holdings Case Study: Accelerating Innovation using Oracle Data Integration

I invite you to hear directly from Sabre how to use advanced data integration capabilities to enable accelerated innovation. To learn more about Oracle’s data integration offering you can download our free resources.
