- Product updates can help drive standardisation across enterprises, says Oracle
- They also help improve performance, increase productivity and simplify deployment
ORACLE Corporation has unveiled Oracle Data Integrator 12c (pic) and Oracle GoldenGate 12c, the latest major updates to its data integration portfolio.
The new updates will help customers to cost-effectively manage the ever-growing streams of information under today’s data-driven business environment, and enable them to capitalise on their data to reduce costs and drive business growth, the company said in a statement.
Oracle vice president of development, Brad Adelberg, said that the management and utilisation of data is becoming increasingly complex as the number and diversity of data sources continues to grow.
“Oracle [can] help drive standardisation across enterprises using our new products for not only traditional uses of extract, transform, load (ETL) and business intelligence/ data warehousing, but also for new and emerging styles of integration like real-time replication, data services and federation, big data and business analytics, and cloud deployments,” he said.
Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c are part of the company’s data integration offering which includes data services, data federation, metadata management, data quality, bulk data movement, and real-time replication.
Oracle Data Integrator is a comprehensive data integration platform that covers all data integration requirements from high-volume, high-performance bulk loads to SOA-enabled data services.
On the other hand, Oracle GoldenGate provides the best-of-breed real-time replication of data in heterogeneous data environments, the company said.
Ovum principal analyst Tony Baer said that customers are demanding more agility and real-time currency from data warehousing.
“The new flow-based data mapping enhancements to Oracle Data Integration 12c will make development of ETL schemes far more efficient, while performance upgrades to Oracle GoldenGate 12c will keep Oracle data warehouses current in near real-time,” he said in the statement issued by Oracle.
The new enhancements help improve performance, increase productivity, and simplify deployment, while providing organisations with solutions that can easily keep pace with new data-oriented technology trends like cloud computing, big data analytics, real-time business intelligence, and continuous data availability, Oracle claimed.
The data integration offering is optimised for Oracle Engineered Systems and is an integral part of Oracle’s fast data, real-time analytics strategy on Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine.
