ETL 2.0: The Imminent Evolution of ETL
Most ETL environments were designed for the business requirements of at least ten years ago – before the number of data sources, applications and use-cases exploded, and before the demands of Big Data, social media and mobile technology were added to the mix. Today, ETL environments are straining to keep up with increased requests for longer history data and more granular details – while, at the same time, organizations are relying more heavily on their data to achieve strategic business objectives. Clearly, a new approach -- ETL 2.0 -- is needed to meet the demands of today’s business environments.
If you are responsible for – or dependent on – your organization’s ETL, it is important to assess your current environment to understand what’s working, what’s not, and what the impact is. Symptoms of stressed or broken ETL include “spaghetti” architectures, increased hardware and database expense, ad hoc tuning activities, and challenges governing and maintaining the environment. The result is higher TCO, longer implementation cycles, and possibly diminished business value on implementation.
ETL 2.0 is a new approach to deliver on the promises of ETL: a fast, efficient, cost-effective approach to leverage corporate data for competitive advantage. By “going back to the basics,” ETL 2.0 can help organizations reduce the cost of ETL, increase business agility, achieve scalability and faster performance, and enable better governance and maintenance of the ETL environment.
