SaaS and Cloud Computing are inevitable paradigm shifts. These days, enterprises have started moving their businesses to cloud. This makes the data in cloud extremely significant for strategic decision making. Earlier, IT managers used to struggle with the problem of diffusing fragmented data silos in on-premise applications only, and now they have the added headache of cloud.

There are very few out-of-the-box integration options available in advanced DWH/ETL tools and data integration platforms. Although there are a variety of connectors available for on-premise ERP, CRM, and HCM applications with leading ETL tools, only a few support SaaS applications like Salesforce, ServiceNow, Successfactors, Amazon and others.

Enterprises need specific and unique connectors that can leverage their huge investments in existing ETL platforms, skills, and manpower to onboard these SaaS integrations on standard Enterprise Data Bus, running on powerful, highly scalable, and robust Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure.

Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) is a comprehensive, market-leading data integration platform used by multiple mid-size and large organizations worldwide. It delivers high-performance, seamless, and code-free data movement and transformations among enterprise applications. It is fully integrated with Oracle Fusion Middleware, Big Data, and Oracle Appliances like Exadata, Exalogic and others.
