Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We chose Oracle Warehouse Builder because we are “married” to Oracle, and don’t want to shell out a lot of money on a third-party tool.

    We chose Oracle Warehouse Builder because it came bundled with the other Oracle products that we already have. (db, developer and applications) Additionally, nobody in on our team has warehousing experience, and Oracle's tool seemed to be at least as simple to set up and run as the others that we looked at. We did have an experienced warehouse consultant review our design; we are just now starting to build our environment -- so we'll see if it's as simple and easy as the demo's made it look!

    Re Oracle Warehouse Builder: It's only in the last year or so that OWB has become a tool to reckon with. It started out as (bad) drawing tool with little code generation capability and a stupendous number of bugs. By now (9.2) it's a good drawing tool with full (although somewhat clunky) code generation, still a pretty big number of bugs, and documentation that is just getting into decent shape (it's still pretty much of the "click here" variety - method overviews and explanations of _why_ are sorely missed). OWB is now a serious competitor to Informatica PowerMart and all the others, and a lot cheaper than most if you're already married to Oracle - at least if you don't count the steep learning curve and time lost in frequent troubleshooting communication with Oracle Support (MetaLink). Regards, Kai
