This is a software tool to build and execute data automation packages.
Visual Importer ETL Enterprise is a platform for building high performance data integration solutions. The tool will let you extract, transform, and load ETL package. This can ease your burden in creating data warehouses and maintaining them on an on-going basis. Visual Importer ETL Enterprise includes graphical tools and wizards for building and debugging automation packages. Automation of business facilities like FTP, Email POP3 and SMTP, File operations, SQL scripts, Zip and Unzip, ETL Task scheduler and comprehensive logging help managing business become simpler. The tool is compatible with a range of databases/data files that include Excel, MS Access, DBF and Text files, Oracle, MS SQL Server, Interbase/Firebird, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and any ODBC compliant database. You are able to automate a whole string of operations and then get notified by mail when the job is done. If there are errors, the log messages would help you debug the process quickly.
For example, you are able to download data via FTP and then load them into a database. You are able to run a SQL query or even a stored procedure and then get a notification to the administrator when the sequence is completed. This way then you may save on additional man power when some peak load comes up. The tool can even make update of the data bases by updating records received through email or FTP operation. Different departments can send in their exam results, for example, and update the central database without any manual intervention being required. The events related to all such automation packages are recorded and a rejected records file is created besides the detailed logs.
