Presentation: Migration from Oracle Warehouse Builder to Oracle Data Integrator – fast and safe!

Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) is Oracle’s strategic product for high-performance, flexible and heterogeneous data integration. The main benefit of a migration to ODI, is that the basic Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB) functionality remains available in ODI.
In its latest “Statement of Direction”, Oracle announced that OWB would not be supported, beyond release 12 of the Oracle database. Database & Technology  (D&T) is an Oracle Gold Partner that offers a complete OWB to ODI migration service using its intelligently automated OWB2ODI. This presentation will focus on the migration, reworking and customization of the OWB mappings and process flows in ODI.

Speaker: Alberto Fazio, Database & Technology (D&T)

  • Alberto Fazio is currently an Oracle Data Integrator, for D&T, in Italy
  • Alberto has been with D&T since 1999, and he has been involved in Data Integration, and migrations from OWB to ODI, since 2008
  • Alberto also works as an Oracle instructor, teaching courses on ODI at many European institutions, on behalf of Oracle University
