In the past, when organizing and accessing data, you had two choices: build a series of complex, hard-to-maintain SQL programs, or spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a proprietary ETL package. Inquidia sees things differently. ETL offers advanced technology to access, integrate and organize data across hundreds of sources, and to deploy it anywhere you need it, all with an easy-to-use, graphical interface.
This new generation of data integration technology has been built from the ground up with open standards, allowing you to deploy data integration as traditional batch programs, or directly into websites to power real-time, dynamic reports. Inquidia consultants have spent decades solving data integration problems. We have the experience in ETL technology to unleash your data, while keeping your infrastructure investments in check.
Get the true data where it comes from.
We've provisioned data from lots of different places. Databases. Files of every type imaginable. Web services of every type imaginable. Hadoop. NoSQL. Basically, if there is data out there, we'll get to it. We use open source technologies like Pentaho Data Integration for those who are looking to get access to data without making a big investment.
Shape it into a new way of using it
This is why we do what we do. Rarely do the people who need to use the data find it exists in the form that is useful. We've had so much experience transforming data that its hard to describe all the ways that we make data better. We enhance it with external sources, including services and databases. We reclassify and recode things based on standardized business rules and rule references. We summarize and aggregate it, so that people can get to the information they need. And we do this all within ETL tools and frameworks that are manageable, repeatable, and reusable.
Put it where you need it.
As part of our architectural know-how, we load data into all kinds of platforms. Whether its a relational database, Hadoop, NoSQL or other technology, we get it there. We've done all kinds of projects where the data needed to be distributed to multiple audiences to multiple places, including websites or Excel. We've even written custom loaders for database that didn't supply them. When you need data in a platform, we know the ins and outs of ETL technology to get it where it needs to be.
Sometimes, we transform it again. Natively.
Certain databases and other platforms work best when you transform the data natively within the platform, instead of using an outside technology. We'll use ETL technologies to orchestrate the flow, and then initiate high-performance transformation routines within the target system. This is often called "ELT" because you load it into your target platform and then transform. Not every tool can do one thing the best. We use the right technology at the right time. That's what makes us smart and different.
