"Our original reason to deploy a data warehouse was to move all reporting off our operational Siebel CRM system. The identification of the need for and subsequent deployment of real-time data integration from Oracle GoldenGate, morphed the original technical problem into a business opportunity. DIRECTV is now able to use the real-time data to monitor customer churn and premium service upgrades intraday and take immediate action to affect overall performance according to our business goals."
Jack Gustafson, Director of Data Warehousing, DIRECTV
"Oracle GoldenGate is lightening fast and performance is far superior to any other product on the market. Additionally, it supports our heterogeneous database environment and with four-way replication across Oracle databases, we can provide the highest level of availability for our fraud detection application which in turn allows us to meet the stringent service level agreements that our leading global retail customers demand."
Chris Uriarte, Chief Technology Officer, Retail Decisions
"With Oracle GoldenGate we have tremendous operational efficiency by standardizing on a single technology platform for our high availability and real-time data integration needs across heterogeneous environments, including HP NonStop, IBM DB2 mainframe and Oracle database environments, and at the same time handle our large and growing data volumes with very high performance rates."
Walt Litzenberger, Director Enterprise Database Systems, CME Group
"This is clearly another data point that supports and validates that this style of technology is in really high demand," said Ted Friedman, an analyst with Stamford, Conn.-based Gartner. "It's being driven by the desire for lower latency business intelligence, more real-time and operational BI. It's being driven by the desire to synchronize disparate systems in a lower-latency fashion... The acquisition also indicates that real-time data integration technology has reached a new level of maturity."

"This is a critical requirement to enable high volume data extraction to support real-time data warehousing and BI, as well as master data management and other operational use cases."

"It's quite a catch for Oracle in that it's a significant addition to its data warehousing and BI portfolio."
