Great Discussion of ETL and ELT Tooling in TDWI Linkedin Group
By antonio romero on Mar 07, 2011
There’s a great discussion of ETL and ELT tooling going on in the official TDWI Linkedin group, under the heading “How Sustainable is SQL for ETL?” It delves into a wide range of topics:
- The pros and cons of handcoding vs. using tools to design ETL
- ETL (with separate transformation engines) vs. ELT (transforms in the database) and push-down solutions
- The future of ETL and data warehousing products
A number of community members (of varying affiliations) have kept this conversation going for many months, and are learning from each other as they go. So check it out…
Also, while you’re on Linkedin, join the Oracle ETL/Data Integration Linkedin group (for both OWB and ODI users), which recently passed the 2000 member mark.
