Data Migration and ETL Services
Extraction Transfer Load Services
We provide data transformation services for Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) operations typically used in data migration projects.
Data Migration – AKA: ETL or Extract, Transform and Load – is the set of processes by which data is extracted from numerous databases, applications and systems (Data Extraction), changed as defined by the organization’s set of business rules (Data Transformation), and then saved into new target systems (Data UpLoad). These new target database systems could be data warehouses, data marts, analytical applications, or any number of database applications.
The first part of the extract, transform and load (ETL) process is analysis of the data sources. The changes are very much related to the organizational entity (business/agency/etc.) and its business rules. This becomes integral in the overall scheme of the ETL procedure; since a thorough understanding of the organization and how it works creates optimum results.
The majority of all work moving forward for data warehousing tasks is normally dedicated to the design and implementation of ETL procedures. Improperly designed ETL processes are expensive to maintain, alter, and upgrade, so it is crucial to make the right choices in terms of the best innovation and tools that will certainly be used for developing and preserving the ETL procedures.
We have more than 25 years experience developing ETL procedures and standards for Data Migration according to industry Best Practices including data normalization, appending data (Email, Phone, SIC Code, etc.), data aggregation, culling bad records and identifying duplicate and near duplicate records buried in your database. These essential techniques are integral to implementing a new and effective Information Storage facility design.
We utilize both commercial applications as well as internally developed code that specializes in extracting, combining and transforming data drawn from uniquely divergent sources ultimately creating meaningful and usable data transformation results, which, in turn, enables accurate and consistent business intelligence availability to your organization.
