Good product still maturing
Install ODI standalone keeping with BI APPS will slow down the enhancements and bug fix.
development adaptability and knowledge modules
more monitoring capabilities
Keep ODI standalone not keep with BI APPS

The journey had ups and down, however, the partnership and technical expertise helped to over the challenges as in any other project implementation.
Plan and be prepared.
The reliability and stability of the tool.
Not having the transparency.
Provide more insight into the tool.

Overall GoldenGate is a well-matured product from Oracle. There are some minor issues with large scale changes to data and how replication works in those circumstances, but otherwise, it is pretty reliable.
Support is fast and reliable

Minor issues resolved quickly. Major issues resolved once we were able to get Oracle to apply sufficient (and correct level of) resources. A powerful tool for eliminating planned and unplanned downtime. Upgrades can be accomplished with very little downtime and full fall-back capability using bi-directional replication.
Standardize implementations to avoid many unique implementations.
A great degree of flexibility. Can move data between different versions and vendor products. Full bi-directional replication allows for true active-active databases
Amount of manual activities needed to create a new installation
More automation of installation (due in version 12.3) Faster apply process (also due in version 12.3)
Create automated implementation, monitoring and auditing tools first.
Support is provided by Oracle. Sometimes it is difficult to get the right level of attention. Once you know how to "work" Oracle support you can get what you need.
Deployment for simple cases (full database or schema replivation) should be fully automated

Oracle Support and ODI A-Team is always there for us to give us support and to answer any questions or fix any roadblocks that we have on using the tool. They are always there to make sure that we can move forward with what we are doing.
I really like that the Logical Mapping is different from the Physical Mapping so if you change integration technology then it is quite easy since Logical is decoupled from Physical. ODI KMs really help us a lot since you really don't need to be an expert on all these integration technologies as ODI will provide the code for you. Awesome!
Oracle Support and ODI A-Team is always there for us for any questions that we have. They always answer our needs to make sure that we can move forward with our integration work.
ODI KMs are a big help for our developers.

The product worked as advertised.
Take the time to plan the architecture and ensure that you have gathered all of your requirements ahead of deployment.
Scalability and ease of learning/use.
More time in development with the implementation team conducting testing and evaluation.
Provided everything that our team required.
Support cases were easy to open, at times we had to work with engineers in vastly different time zones. Otherwise responsive and helpful.
Deployment was straightforward and support was easy to contact.
