By antonio romero on May 07, 2007
Oracle Warehouse Builder 10gR2 was selected as a Leader in Enterprise ETL in the just-published Forrester Wave: Enterprise ETL, Q2 2007.
Forrester analyst Rob Karel writes:
With the long awaited �Paris� release of Oracle Warehouse Builder 10gR2 (OWB) finally available, Oracle has delivered a scaleable, user-friendly, and feature-rich ETL solution at a much more attractive price than its competitors: Free! Base OWB functionality is bundled at no charge with the purchase of an Oracle Standard Edition One, Standard Edition, or Enterprise Edition database. That�s great news for enterprises already using � or planning to use � Oracle databases...
OWB also offers improved connectivity to non-Oracle source platforms and applications, [with] target load and connectivity... optimized for Oracle database and data warehousing environments.
Automating the detection and implementation of data quality rules within its data profiling tool was also cited as a significant differentiator.
