Oracle Ships New Warehouse Builder Tool

Oracle this week shipped release two of its Oracle Warehouse Builder 10g database tool, which solution providers can use to cleanse data and build analytics applications.

Oracle Warehouse Builder 10g Release 2, a database design and Extraction, Transformation and Load (ETL) application, helps customers manage the life cycle of data and metadata. Oracle said it also plans to embed core ETL capabilities into the various versions of its database software.

Users of Oracle 10g Enterprise Edition Release 2, too, can purchase additional ETL capabilities via a Warehouse Builder Enterprise ETL option for heterogeneous environments, with support for user-defined objects and associations. In addition, a Data Quality option adds data profiling and rules, cleansing, auto-correction and auditing.

The ETL option costs $10,000 per CPU or $200 per user. The Data Quality option runs $15,000 per CPU or $300 per user. Connectors for PeopleSoft Enterprise, Oracle E-Business Suite and SAP are $20,000 per connector per target application.

Rich Niemiec, CEO of TUSC, a Chicago-based Oracle partner, is bullish on the new Warehouse Builder offering.
