What about an open source ETL?

An ETL is a software which Extract, Transform and Load data.

Extract is from different sources. It can be some databases as well as some text files or even excel documents. We have that a lot here.
Transform is when we have to concatenate data, match some data with others or simply filter them to make sure we have all we need before loading the data.

Load talks for itself I guess.

It’s name is Kettle and we like it 🙂 Well there are some other open source products on the market but Kettle demonstrated more maturity in the project.

When we feedback bugs it’s taken into account very quickly.

It has been recently bought by Pentaho.

All you need to try it is java runtime installed on your computer.
