Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition – New bundling – ODI and OWB merged
Posted by Venkatakrishnan J on January 31, 2009
Well, this news has been floating around for sometime and now it has been officially released. Oracle Warehouse Builder and Oracle Data Integrator have been merged together into a single product called Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition. This has a primary impact from a product pricing/purchasing standpoint. Going forward its not possible to purchase OWB (Enterprise ETL) and ODI seperately(i believe this is the case, not completely sure though). The official details of this are available below
So, now with a single product(from a licensing standpoint) it is possible to deploy both OWB and ODI (customers have more flexibility in their deployments which is good). But effectively both the components will have their seperate releases (according to the SOD above). The actual product merging would happen only after a seperate individual release of both the products. More details are available in the statement of direction.
