ECU’s Extract Transform and Load (ETL) Framework consists of two paths for loading external data into the Operational Data Store (ODS): Non-Oracle Data Sources (Microsoft SQL Server, MS Access databases, web services) and Oracle data sources. The paths are controlled by the external system and the mechanism to connect and extract the data. When the external system does not allow for an Oracle to Oracle connection, Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is used as the foundation for the Non-Oracle data source path. When the external systems allows for an Oracle to Oracle connection the Oracle Data Source path is selected.
In this session we will present several major projects showcasing how ECU leverages Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), Oracle Streams, and the Ellucian/Banner ODS ETL process to load various types of external data into the Ellucian/Banner Operational Data Store (ODS).
