UpstreamGlobal Services has in-depth data integration experience and certified consultants for each of the industry-leading ETL software suites, such as IBM Infosphere DataStage, Informatica Powercenter, SAP Business Objects Data Integrator, Oracle ETL/Warehouse builder and Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services.
Although the functionality offered by the different main vendors is somewhat converging, there are still some important differences. It is important to balance the specific functionality of the tools with your requirements. Our vendor-neutral position and past experience with each of the tools, combined with a software selection methodology, can help you in reaching the right decision in an efficient way.
This requires much more than installing the software on a server. The set-up needs to ensure that it will be a technical performing ETL architecture, but also make sure that there is sufficient attention for maintainability and reusability, auditing of ETL processes, data quality checking and improving, optimal usage of specific tool features such as in-memory processing.
This requires profound knowledge of the ETL solution itself, combined with a heterogeneous set of other skills to investigate and audit all parameters that determine ETL performance. We can offer this unique skill mix, as well as a pre-defined and proven methodology to perform these audits in a time- and cost-efficient way. Outcome of such an audit is a range of recommendations on the ETL architecture and plan next steps to implement these recommendations.
Our senior and certified ETL consultants and architects know the main ETL software suites inside-out. Consequently, they are very efficient ETL developers, producing fast results that can stand the test of time. We can take complete responsibility of a data warehouse & ETL project and deliver a fully custom-built and documented ETL environment.
