ETL

ETL processes are critical to feeding a data warehouse, a business intelligence system, or big data platform. The accuracy, computing efficiency, and reliability of a business intelligence platform rely on skilled execution of each step:

  • Extraction of data from back office applications, databases, or spreadsheets.
  • Transformation of the data to conform it, perform calculations or string parsing, enrich it with external lookups, and match the required format.
  • Loading of the transformed data into a data warehouse, Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) applications, or cubes.
