Alui provides an alternative to the annual technical support you probably receive now from Oracle on FDM. Oracle has recently announced that there will be no further development of “FDM Classic”, the Windows based version of FDM that was available up to version 18.104.22.168. Many companies do not want to invest the time and cost required to upgrade to Oracle's Java based loading software called Enterprise Edition ( or "EE"). Instead they are choosing to move their support to Alui at 50% of their current Oracle support fee and receive additional services (e.g. support for custom scripts) they don’t currently get under standard vendor support.
