  • 4. What do ETLs tool do? An ETL tool is a tool that: • Extracts data from various data sources (usually legacy) • Transforms data • from -> being optimized for transaction to -> being optimized for reporting and analysis • synchronizes the data coming from different databases • data cleanses to remove errors • Loads data into a data warehouse Page 4 | 20 March 2008 | ETL Tools Comparison

  • 6. Why use an ETL tool? ETL tools save time and money when developing a data warehouse by removing the need for “hand-coding”. “Hand Coding” is still the most common way of integrating data today. It requires hours and hours of development and expertise to create a Business-Intelligence-System. It is very difficult for data base administrators to connect between different brands of databases without using an external tool. In the event that databases are altered or new databases need to be integrated, a lot of “hand-coded” work needs to be completely redone. Page 6 | 20 March 2008 | ETL Tools Comparison

  • 20. Comparison Total Cost of Ownership Total Cost of Ownership means the over all cost for a certain product. This can mean initial ordering, licensing servicing, support, training, consulting, and any other additional payments that need to be made before the product is in full use. Commercial Open Source products are typically free to use, but the support, training and consulting are what companies need to pay for.

  • 22. Comparison Risk There are always risks with projects, especially big projects. The risks for projects failing are: • Going over budget • Going over schedule • Not completing the requirements or expectations of the customers Open Source products have much lower risk then Commercial ones since they do not restrict the use of their products by pricey licenses.

  • 24. Comparison Ease of Use All of the ETL tools, apart from Inaport, have GUI to simplify the development process. Having a good GUI also reduces the time to train and use the tools. Talend – Does have a GUI but is an add-on inside Eclipse RC. Pentaho Kettle – Has the most easy to use GUI out of all the tools. Training can also be found online or within the community. Informatica PowerCenter – Has an easy to use GUI, but requires some training to make full use of it. Inaplex Inaport – Does not have a “drag and drop” GUI.

  • 28. Comparison Deployment Talend – Creates a java file or perl file that can be run with an external scheduler on any machine with very little resource. Recommended one 1Ghz CPU and 512mbs ram Pentaho Kettle – Is a stand-alone java engine that can run on any machine that can run java. Needs an external scheduler to run automatically. It can be deployed on many different machines and used as “slave servers” to help with transformation processing. Recommended one 1Ghz CPU and 512mbs ram Informatica PowerCenter – Requires a server with platforms: Windows, Solaris, HP-UX, IBM-UX, Redhat, SUSE linux. Recommended to use two CPUs with 1Gb ram for Standard Edition Server Inaplex Inaport – Can run on any windows platform that has .NET 2.0 installed Recommended one CPU with 50mbs ram.

  • 30. Comparison Speed The speed of ETL tools depends largely on the data that needs to be transferred over the network and the processing power involved in transforming the data. Talend – Is slower then Pentaho. It requires manual tweaking and prior knowledge of the specific data source to reduce network traffic and processing. Pentaho Kettle – Is faster then Talend, but the Java-connector slows it down somewhat. Also requires manual tweaking like Talend. Can be clustered by placed on many machines to reduce network traffic. Informatica PowerCenter – Is the fastest tool. It has an advanced “PushDown” option that localizes transformation tasks depending on how busy the machine is. Inaplex Inaport – does not use any special techniques to improve speed.

  • 32. Comparison Data Quality Data Quality is fast becoming the most important feature in any data integration tool. Talend – has DQ features in its GUI, allows for customized SQL statements and by using Java. Pentaho – has DQ features in its GUI, allows for customized SQL statements, by using JavaScript and Regular Expressions. It also has some additional modules after subscribing. Informatica PowerCenter – does not have that many DQ features, but there is another product called Informatica Data Quality which has many DQ features. Inaplex Inaport – does have DQ features. Because of the very specific data that Inaport can integrate, it is relatively easy to clean that data.

  • 36. Comparison Connectivity In most cases, ETL tools transfer data from legacy systems. Their connectivity is very important to the usefulness of the ETL tools. Talend – Can connect to all the current databases, flat files, xml files, excel files and web services, but is reliant on Java drivers to connect to those data sources. Pentaho Kettle – Can connect to a very wide variety of databases, flat files, xml files, excel files and web services. Informatica PowerCenter – Can connect to a huge number of databases, mainframes, flat files, excel files and web services. It can also export as a web service. Inaplex Inaport – Can connect to any ODBC (windows) connection. It usually gets its data from current databases, outlook, ACT and excel files.

  • 46. Use Cases U.S. Naval Air Systems Command "[Open technologies] reduce the cost of software development and they reduce the time in which innovations in software can be incorporated in systems. 'If the project is of a sufficient scale, you cannot get there without an open-source approach,' said Dewey Houck, a senior engineer at Boeing, who spoke at a conference last month about DOD's use of open source." (Government Computer News, Jan. 2008)" Key Challenges • Analyzing flight data to reduce operational risk and improve training (human error is a causal factor in 70% of aviation mishaps) Results • Ability to leverage recorded electronic sensor data to reduce risk and improve crew performance Why Pentaho • Breadth of capabilities • Proven success and large-scale referenceable deployments • Successful proof-of-concept • Dramatically lower costs Page 46 | 20 March 2008 | ETL Tools Comparison
