OWB - Making the Move to ODI

Yesterday's session on Making the Move to Oracle Data Integrator at OOW13 after the America's Cup finale was a great way to round off the day (the garlic at the Stinking Rose was even better but we will stick with the technology here), the session was hosted by Julien Testut from product management and was under the Oracle safe harbor statement below. There was an overview by Jyotin Gautam the ODI development director and then some demonstrations from Oracle partners Stewart Bryson and Holger Friedrich.

The session lay down the options for OWB customers moving forward; 

  • execute and monitor OWB jobs within ODI
  • migrate all or parts of OWB mappings with the migration utility
  • develop new ETL in ODI

...or a mixture of all of these. Stewart demonstrated the execution of OWB jobs from within ODI and highlighted the immediate value-add of doing this. ODI load plans provide a restartability capability that is a key part of an ETL infrastructure (this had to be manually constructed in OWB). Its great hearing the genuine excitement and enthusiasm Stewart presents with and using words like 'beautiful' are icing on the cake (I can still hear his comments a few years ago of 'all I want is a mapper' ringing in my ears). Holger demonstrated the migration utility that migrates the OWB design metadata into ODI, migrating a complex mapping with many operators and multiple targets into a ODI 12c mapping and like many was surprised with the simplicity of the solution and the maintainability of the new design in ODI.

There was a bunch of tweeting going on in the session and Mark Rittman quick succinctly summarized the session below;

It was a well attended session with a mix of OWB and ODI customers and customers looking to move to ODI in general. The guys in development were happy to see this finally getting their. Sure and steadfast ;-)

The session was under Oracle's safe harbor statement...'The following is intended to outline our general product direction.

OWB - 11.2.0.4 Documentation Updates for 12c database

The OWB 11.2.0.4 documentation is updated on OTN with information on operating with 12c databases including install/upgrade and pluggable databases. It's worth starting with the release notes for further information. You will need either 11.2.0.3 plus CP2 (CP3 advised) or 11.2.0.4 of OWB to operate with 12c database.

Oracle Database 12c

Exciting day today as Oracle Database 12c is released. You can find lots of information on the release on OTN here. With this release comes another milestone on Oracle's Data Integration roadmap - OWB is no longer shipped with the database. You will notice that the OWB documentation is no longer included with the Oracle Database documentation, you can compare and contrast the 11.2 and 12.1 documentation below.

OWB 11gR2 is still supported with Oracle Database 12c, you will need 11.2.0.3 plus at least CP2 which has been certified with Oracle Database 12c. The 11.2.0.4 release will wrapper this into one install.
