ETL Grows Outside of Data Warehousing
Loraine Lawson posted a link to a webinar on Operational Data Integration: The Growing Practice of ETL Outside of Data Warehousing that will be held on the 13th of August by TDWI Research Sr. Manager, Philip Russom.
TDWI Research shows that data integration usage – especially in the form of ETL – is growing overall, but growing fastest outside of data warehousing. This is because ETL tools and techniques are increasingly applied to operational data integration projects within and beyond the enterprise, like database and application consolidations, migrations, upgrades, synchronizations, and B2B data exchange. The number of these technical projects is driven up by business events, like mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, and sharing data with partners.
By attending the webinar you will learn why ETL usage is growing outside of data warehousing, what kind of technology requirements this involves, including new ones like SOA and software as a service (SaaS), how requirements for tools, techniques, and teams for ETL vary between warehousing and non-warehousing projects, which approaches help accommodate non-warehouse ETL without raiding resources of the data warehouse team.
