    Product(s): Oracle GoldenGate

    GoldenGate implementation. Smooth with very minor issues.

    Overall Comment

    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.

    Service & support - overall comment

    Support is fast and reliable

    Product(s): Oracle GoldenGate

    Strong product for heterogeneous near real-time data movement.

    Overall Comment

    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.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Standardize implementations to avoid many unique implementations.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    A great degree of flexibility. Can move data between different versions and vendor products. Full bi-directional replication allows for true active-active databases

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Amount of manual activities needed to create a new installation

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    More automation of installation (due in version 12.3) Faster apply process (also due in version 12.3)

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Create automated implementation, monitoring and auditing tools first.

    Service & support - overall comment

    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.

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    Deployment for simple cases (full database or schema replivation) should be fully automated

    Product(s): Oracle Data Integrator (ODI)

    ODI KMs really made our integration implementation very easy.

    Overall Comment

    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.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    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.
