What kind of Infosphere Datastage Objects are supported by Undraleu?

Undraleu can perform reviews of most Infosphere Datastage code/configuration objects including Projects, Folders, Jobs, Stages, Parameters, Job/Stage Configuration and much more. The best practices are a result of a careful analysis of industry standards and our expertise. We strive to engage very closely with our customers from where we enrich our library of best practices constantly.

Will my rules/best practices stop working when we migrate to a new version of Infosphere Datastage?

No. The rules/best practices are version independent. However, we provide communication to all our clients on any possible hurdles well in advance and provide road-maps to migrations. In a highly unlikely scenario where our customers require migrating ahead of our having certified the rules against the new release of Infosphere Datastage, we will discuss this with the customer to provide them a least disruptive course of action.

What kind of Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Objects are supported by Undraleu?

Undraleu can perform reviews of most Oracle Data Integrator code/configuration objects including Projects, Folders, Interfaces, Knowledge Modules (KMs), Packages, Procedures, Models, Load Plans, Scenarios, Sequences, User Functions, Variables and Sessions. The best practices are a result of a careful analysis of industry standards, our expertise and recommendations from Oracle. We strive to engage very closely with our customers from where we enrich our library of best practices constantly.

Will my rules/best practices stop working when we migrate to a new version of ODI?

No. The rules/best practices are version independent. However, we provide communication to all our clients on any possible hurdles well in advance and provide road-map to migration/upgrade. Our key objective is to develop and test the best practices(new and old) as soon as Oracle announces new release. In a highly unlikely scenario where our customers require migrating ahead of our having certified the rules against the new release of Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), we will discuss this with the customer to provide them a least disruptive course of action.

Why does CoeurData recommend an Undraleu license for the production environment?

Most organizations have been using Informatica since a long time and have a lot of legacy code that undergo maintenance along with more recent code.

From our experience, we realize that most companies have challenges in production environment. One quick win in having Undraleu run on production environment is to identify and learn from the findings and not repeat those mistakes in new deployments. This will ensure stemming any new issues from cropping up in production environment.

What are the architectural requirements for Undraleu?

Undraleu is developed using very simple and mature technology stack. It needs a JRE, a small database to manage itself, a webserver and finally read only access to Informatica Repository objects. While Undraleu can be installed on the same server as other Informatica components, it is not a pre-requisite. Undraleu can be installed on a separate server with connectivity to the Informatica Repository database. Undraleu supports most Operating Systems including Windows, Linux and Unix (most variants).

We don’t believe that a tool can manage our code reviews better than our current and traditional reviews which are very thorough. Why should we consider Undraleu?

While there are development shops which are very well structured and conduct code reviews thoroughly, in all possibility it is a manual review. Such shops which pride themselves in their personnel and code reviews can benefit even further by automating their code reviews and spare themselves with at least a few hours of the time they spend in performing the code reviews and deliver more projects and improve their overall value from their stake holders’ perspective.

In short, using Undraleu, you can develop more of the good code you have been developing without Undraleu.

Will my rules/best practices stop working when we migrate to a new version of Informatica PowerCenter?

No. The rules/best practices are version independent.

However, we provide communication to all our clients on any possible hurdles well in advance and provide roadmaps to migrations. We hope to work very closely with Informatica and develop and test the best practices as soon as Informatica announces new releases. In a highly unlikely scenario where our customers require migrating ahead of our having certified the rules against the new release of Informatica PowerCenter, we will discuss this with the customer to provide them a least disruptive course of action.
