The classic model for Extract-Transform-Load or Agile ETL, is a tried and true method of gathering data, validating, aligning, and delivering it to one data source at a time. Neither the tools nor the methods have advanced for at least 30 years, making the current process cumbersome.
With the surge of interest in accessing data for business intelligence, and the need for more agile data access, it becomes quite clear that there needs to be a better approach. A single process to read live data, federate, and deliver it to the destination exactly as needed.
There are a host of other drawbacks that now weigh heavily on many corporate IT teams and budgets.
The IT world is changing rapidly, and ETL simply is not sustainable. Meanwhile, the need for bulk load types of activities is not likely to go away.
Stone Bond’s Agile ETL virtually eliminates the tech debt with the fastest time-to value on the market. Instead of hard-coding with ancient scripting languages, Enterprise Enabler® is a single platform that supports not only ETL, but makes all components of integration reusable for any other integration patterns such as EAI, SOA, and Data Virtualization.
In just a few minutes, one can configure an Agile ETL, test it, deploy, and monitor it all without leaving the single UI driven environment.
Agile ETL is clearly the only path forward for a company that wants to be able to quickly respond to business opportunities and lose the ballast holding IT back.
