OWB : Leader In Gartner ETL 2004 Magic Quadrant
October 8, 2004
Mark Rittman

Yahoo Finance: "REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL - News) today announced its position in the leader quadrant in Gartner's ETL 2004 Magic Quadrant. Oracle is the only database vendor listed in the leader quadrant.

One of 18 vendors in the extract, transform and load (ETL) market evaluated by Gartner for this year's report, Oracle was recognized based on its vision and ability to execute. The affordability of OracleŽ Warehouse Builder, and its alignment with the feature-rich Oracle Database 10g, has helped Oracle grow its ETL customer base to include more than 3,000 companies. According to Gartner, "leaders" are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction and can execute on that opportunity.

"Many of the world's largest companies are using Oracle Warehouse Builder for their most pressing ETL needs," said Ray Roccaforte, vice president of Server Development, Business Intelligence, Oracle Corp. "Industry adoption of ETL will continue to be fueled by the widespread deployment of business intelligence solutions. Our ETL tool is an excellent option for companies implementing such solutions."

Oracle Delivers Powerful Data Warehousing and ETL Offerings

In May 2004, Gartner listed Oracle in the 2004 Data Warehouse DBMS Leaders' Quadrant for completeness of vision and ability to execute. Oracle's combined strengths in data warehousing and ETL provide customers with a comprehensive offering to efficiently and cost effectively develop, deploy and manage highly scalable decision support systems.

Business Intelligence market growth has fueled ETL tool adoption such as Oracle Warehouse Builder that reads data from a database, extracts the desired data, transforms it into the required form according to predefined rules, and then loads into a data warehouse for reporting and analytic requirements.

About Oracle Warehouse Builder 10g

Oracle Warehouse Builder enables the extraction, transformation, and loading of heterogeneous data to produce quality information in Oracle Database 10g. It is the only enterprise business intelligence design tool that manages the full life-cycle of data and metadata integration for Oracle Database 10g."

This is obviously based on the new Paris release of OWB, which is a step change in terms of functionality and performance above the 3i and 9i-generations of OWB. What's probably particularly helped in this release is features such as the ability to load non-Oracle databases (revealed in Paul Narth's presentation), the data profiler and close integration with Oracle OLAP. Good to see our choice of ETL tool vindicated.
