etl transformations  ETL with Pentaho Data Integration When evaluating a data integration tool, you need to ask whether it handles dimension and fact transformations in a robust manner. You also need to determine how it handles error processing, and captures changes to dimensional data across time. Does it include reusable objects? What late-arriving fact functionality does it provide? And which data stores does it actually connect to?

Enterprise Information Management: Strategy, Best Practices, and Technologies on Your Path to Success


New data sources, unstructured data, and greater volumes of data than ever before are creating an information overload. Plus, customers’ demands for faster service stress front-office applications, while parallel demands from internal users place greater demands on back-office systems. Before you discover that your data quality has been rendered ineffective, consider adopting enterprise information management (EIM).

etl transformations  the desired data, the ETL program takes over and merges the two disparate data streams into one structured data stream where a myriad of transformations can be applied. This in itself is a major boon to EIM. In years past, practitioners had to struggle with complex and convoluted processes to extract data from freeform textual data and then compromise on how it was stored with structured data. With 80% of the world’s data in unstructured data sources, an EIM strategy will eventually have to address it. Read More

systemfabrik Releases an EAI Product?


With the announcement of the immediate availability of Warehouse Workbench 4.0 (WWB), systemfabrik, originally an Extract/Transform/Load (ETL) vendor, is attempting to move into the EAI space. Whether the product can actually accomplish EAI remains to be seen.

etl transformations  processes and moves beyond ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load) capabilities. Warehouse Workbench 4.0 introduces an open, enterprise wide Information Infrastructure Architecture based on the Universal Transformation Language (UTL). Reverse Engineering and graphical online simulation of all transformations, accelerate the integration of inter enterprise data. Increasingly, data marts and data warehouses are no longer isolated features within the company says Gerrit Kolb, CEO of systemfabrik. Their rapid Read More

A Road Map to Data Migration Success


Many significant business initiatives and large IT projects depend upon a successful data migration. But when migrated data is transformed for new uses, project teams encounter some very specific management and technical challenges. Minimizing the risk of these tricky migrations requires effective planning and scoping. Read up on the issues unique to data migration projects, and find out how to best approach them.

Continuous Data Quality Management: The Cornerstone of Zero-Latency Business Analytics


No matter how well an enterprise implements a CRM, ERP, SCM, Business Intelligence, or Data Warehouse project, poor data quality can destroy its utility and cost real dollars.

etl transformations  A? Many applications and ETL jobs turn off referential integrity checks in order to speed the loading of databases (or use some other logic to check referential integrity). As a result, the data that ends up in a database that supposedly provides referential integrity can often be incorrect. Linkages . Are there parts in our invoice file that don't exist in the parts catalog? Are there orders that have been marked as delivered than can't be matched to an invoice? Primary Keys . Are primary keys unique? Read More

Ardent Software Enters the SAP Data Extraction Market


Ardent Software has announced the addition of SAP extraction and load capabilities to their DataStage product, increasing their strength in the Extract/Transform/Load tool market. Due to the prevalence of SAP in the Enterprise Resource Planning space, this addition will provide a competitive advantage over some of the other major ETL vendors such as Sagent and Computer Associates.

etl transformations  very few of the ETL ( Extract/Transform/Load ) tool vendors have produced modules that allow extraction from SAP. The vendors have had difficulty due to the specialized knowledge of SAP required to produce the custom code which could understand SAP's internal data formats. Ardent's entry into this market will give it leverage with any corporation that uses SAP's Enterprise Resource Planning system. The ability to integrate ERP systems with data warehouses and provide true enterprise-wide information is Read More

Achieving a Successful Data Migration


The data migration phase can consume up to 40 percent of the budget for an application implementation or upgrade. Without separate metrics for migration, data migration problems can lead an organization to judge the entire project a failure, with the conclusion that the new package or upgrade is faulty--when in fact, the problem lies in the data migration process.

Any ETL tool needs to be able to exchange metadata with enterprise repositories of metadata, business intelligence tools, decision support systems, enterprise portals, and other products that will most likely come from another vendor. The challenge is creating an all-encompassing DTD that describes all of the types of metadata that could Read More
