The fully unified solution combines all the elements of data integration—real-time and bulk data movement, transformation, synchronization, data quality, data management, and data services—to ensure that information is timely, accurate, and consistent across heterogeneous and highly available systems.
A component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Data Integration Suite is a comprehensive, hot-pluggable, integrated set of data management products that allows organizations to improve performance and productivity. The suite includes Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition, Oracle BPEL Process Manager, Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management, and Oracle Service Bus.
