Benefits of Partnership

The Open Text Integration Center (OTIC), formally known as Genio, is a data and content integration platform that unifies information silos that cross application boundaries, consolidating and transforming data and content throughout the entire information ecosystem. The Open Text Integration Center is a natural extension to the Teradata environment - among its featured capabilities, OTIC  leverages the powerful database engine on the Teradata server to farm out the ETL processing, providing greater processing performance in moving source and target data.  Other compatible features include:

  • OTIC Loader Objects that include Teradata's Fastload, Multiload and TPump
  • Flexible scripting language which permits the use of Teradata's OLAP and Scalar functions
  • OTIC's architecture support of ETL, TEL and ELT methodologies

The Open Text Integration Center also provides significant capabilities for supporting change management impact analysis, data processing dependencies and lineage, and a comprehensive scheduling tool for time-sensitive and event-based processing.  All of these features allow for significantly reduced manual workflow and exception handling, which is important in addressing today's enterprise business solutions for ongoing maintenance and corporate governance.

The combined Teradata and the Open Text Integration Center solution is a success story on its own, fully meeting a customer's large, complex data warehousing and business intelligence solutions.
