Database & Technology has developed the OWB2ODI Converter to reduce the time and costs when migrating from Oracle Warehouse Builder to Oracle Data Integrator. The OWB2ODI Converter is a semi-automatic tool for converting OWB projects into ODI projects. The tool was specifically designed to recreate the logic implemented in the OWB project in the new logic of the ODI project, while keeping the semantics and functions implemented in the initial project unchanged.
Tests carried out on company projects showed that the time required for migration was drastically reduced by using the OWB2ODI Converter. After a careful analysis of the results, it became clear that the benefits (gained from using the OWB2ODI Converter tool rather than manual conversion) increase in proportion to the size and complexity of the project.
