Think about why you need to get data out of Oracle or another DB, where it's going, how often, and how long you think it should take.

Then weigh the alternatives you have, like SQL SPOOL to file (slow), the DB's own pump (into their proprietary format only), buying more hardware, or writing your own unloader.

IRI FACT was made to address all these issues in one fast, affordable, cross-DB extract utility. Front-ended in Eclipse and full of performance and formatting features, FACT also runs seamlessly in IRI reorg, ETL, and migration jobs.
