Efficient Data Extraction from Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications

Extracting data from SaaS applications has consistently been a challenge, and Oracle Fusion is no exception. Existing extraction mechanisms produce CSV/text files, making it difficult to analyze and integrate into business workflows.

The cutting-edge SplashOC Data Pipeline addresses this issue by offering an automated, table-to-table replication solution. It efficiently extracts data from Oracle Fusion and makes it accessible in familiar databases like Oracle, Snowflake, and Microsoft SQL Server.

The Advantages of Data Pipeline

1

Streamlined Data Extraction

Utilize data extracted from Oracle Fusion to develop business analytics with tools like Tableau, SplashBI, PowerBI, and more. These tools natively connect to databases, simplifying reporting and analytics without manually consuming CSV files.
2

Seamless Integrations

Data Pipeline facilitates integration of Oracle Fusion data into on-premises systems, data lakes, or legacy applications, ensuring smooth connectivity.
3

Incremental Mode Efficiency

SplashOC Data Pipeline's Incremental mode guarantees that only "changed" data is extracted, significantly reducing the volume of data in transit.
4

Flexible Scheduling

Data Pipeline can be scheduled to run at predetermined times or executed on-demand, providing adaptable data extraction options.

Challenges

  • Fusion data required for enterprise reporting
  • BICC unable to connect to Snowflake Database
  • CSV extraction proves cumbersome

Solution

  • Utilize SplashOC Data Pipeline to extract and replicate data directly into Snowflake
  • Eliminate the need for CSV manipulation
  • Schedule data extraction for increased efficiency

Example Use Case – Cloud Security Company

A leading Cloud Security Company needed to extract data from Oracle Fusion Applications to facilitate enterprise reporting using their Snowflake data warehouse. Existing solutions like OTBI, BI Publisher, and BICC couldn’t establish a connection with the Snowflake database, forcing the IT team to rely on manual CSV file uploads. As data volumes increased over time, handling CSV files became increasingly challenging and error-prone. To ensure future scalability, the company decided to implement the SplashOC Data Pipeline.

The new strategy involves scheduling the Data Pipeline to extract data regularly, automatically populating the Snowflake data warehouse. For specific fast-moving tables, data will be extracted from Oracle Fusion on-demand, as required by business leaders. The combination of their enterprise reporting tool’s Snowflake connectivity and SplashOC Data Pipeline’s data extraction capabilities will empower comprehensive business analytics for their users.

Example Use Case – Public School System

A large public school system migrated to Oracle Fusion Applications from a legacy Microsoft ERP. They sought a scalable solution for PowerBI Enterprise Data Warehouse reporting and cross-application reporting with on-premises systems. Initially, business users ran OTBI and BI Publisher reports, manually exported data to Excel spreadsheets, and combined these spreadsheets with other sources in PowerBI. This labor-intensive process consumed a significant amount of time and effort.

Although they explored BICC, they found manual/CSV processing to be inefficient. BICC produced text-based output, leaving the IT team to determine how to load CSVs into the database. After implementing the SplashOC Data Pipeline, data is now automatically downloaded into their on-premises MS SQL Server data warehouse. The automated background process runs at predefined intervals, making data available in the warehouse without handling CSVs or parsing text. The extracted data is effortlessly consumed by their Enterprise reporting and analytics solution, PowerBI.

Challenges

  • Utilize Oracle Fusion data for PowerBI analytics.
  • PowerBI connects with Microsoft SQL Server Database.
  • OTBI, BI Publisher, and BICC can’t connect with on-premises Microsoft Database.

Solution

  • Extract Fusion data into MS SQL Server database using SplashOC Data Pipeline.
  • Automate extraction, saving countless man-hours.
  • Leverage in-house talent pool skilled in Microsoft technologies.
