      Presentation Overview

      ETL (Extract, Transformation and Loading) is going
      through a paradigm shift. Previously, ETL was done
      with tools outside the database. Ab Initio, Data Stage
      and Informatica were kings of the ETL world. However,
      there were major disadvantages to this paradigm. Third
      party ETL tools required a separate box because they
      had no controls on the consumption of CPU resources.
      Third party ETL tools were not integrated into the
      database. This meant that ETL developers became
      experts in running the tool; however, had no knowledge
      on how the tool related to the database. In order to
      create fast and efficient ETL processes, you needed to
      know both.

      Oracle 9i is changing the ETL paradigm. This
      presentation will cover these Oracle 9i ETL features
      and explain why you want to join the paradigm shift
      and do ETL in the database.
