ETL & Rules Engine Technology

With increased numbers of software applications used by today’s organisation there has been a corresponding growth in the number of “Extract, transform and load” (ETL) software companies capable of extracting data from one or more sources and transferring it to a destination system in a different format from the source system. The increased use of corporate data warehouses has driven demand for ever more powerful ETL technologies able to handle large and disparate data volumes.

Well-designed ETL systems extract data from multiple source systems, enforcing data quality and consistency standards, conforming data so separate sources can be combined and finally delivering data in a presentation-ready format so application developers can build applications and end users can make decisions.

Data extraction takes time and therefore the three phases are often performed in parallel. During the data extraction process, another transformation process takes place while processing the data already received and prepares it for loading while the data loading begins without waiting for the completion of the previous phases.

ETL systems commonly integrate data from multiple applications (systems), typically developed and supported by different vendors or hosted on separate computer hardware. The separate systems containing the original data are frequently managed and operated by different employees.

The introduction and configuration of ETL technologies can be complex. Millennium Consulting bridges the gap between software vendors and clients and help to harness the power of Rules Engines, ETL tools and Data Warehouses to store, process and make best use of corporate data.
