DIETLOraWB:P2 Data Integration and ETL with Oracle Warehouse Builder: Part 2

Oracle Course Description:
Extraction of data from non-Oracle sources using code templates, usage of the Warehouse Builder ETL and data integration features of the Enterprise ETL Option of the Oracle database are discussed. Participants also use Warehouse Builder to define both relational dimensional models and multidimensional models. This functionality requires the Oracle Warehouse Builder Enterprise ETL/ODI EE option.
