4 Purely Open-Source ETL Data Integration Tools

4 Purely Open-Source ETL Data Integration Tools

Accessing data doesn’t just mean having a unified view of it all. For practical purposes of crunching all the data, it needs to be in one place where an analytics program can reach it. That involves moving data from one place to another, usually from storage systems into a data warehouse capable of analyzing it. The main method for doing so is called ETL (for Extract, Transform and Load). In managing databases, ETL refers to three separate functions combined into a single programming tool. For those looking to invest in ETL for a Data Integration project, the following tools offer open-source capabilities.

CloverETL

It provides an effective blend of rapid visual design of transformations and workflows with full coding customization capabilities and automation.

Jedox
