Solving 5 Common ETL Pain Points with Flux

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) September 14, 2011

Today Flux released a technical article, “Demystifying ETL Automation”, which reveals the ETL (extract, transform, load) challenges faced by enterprises in an SOA environment. While data centers have been churning data for decades, data increases with every file transfer and is often orchestrated by an ETL tool.

Working with IT professionals worldwide, the Flux development team has identified five recurring pain points that make ETL alien in an SOA environment when not addressed correctly. The article identifies these common issues and illustrates how Flux addresses them with ETL automation tools built into the workload automation product.

“Although these daily tasks may seem mundane, IT operations teams can encounter considerable complexity and significant operational problems with improperly designed ETL systems,” states Flux president, David Sims.

Sims states further, “Flux brings workflow capabilities to the ETL world. ETL developers and architects can focus on the task at hand while complexities such as dependency management, error resolution, and resource optimization are handled by Fluxs intuitive toolset.”

Offering a scalable solution that responds to dynamic load and automatic error resolution, Flux guides staff through the process with a centralized web dashboard. Through web services, Flux provides integration points for ETL tools such as SAP BusinessObjects Data Services, IBM DataStage, and Informatica that neatly interface with other applications. Orchestration of ETL processes with scheduling, dependency, and error handling requirements gives enterprises the scalable solution and automation needed to help meet productivity requirements.
