Product Review

Key Features

  • Scalable, platform independent ETL engine–enables complex ETL transformations to be executed in a highly efficient manner. Supports multiple CPU’s and 64-bit servers.
  • Job execution and scheduling manager–dependency-driven job execution model supports multiple job types, conditional exception handling, email notification and time-based scheduling. Job types fall into three categories, with support for additional executors via the KETL API.
  1. SQL–executes pre-defined SQL statement via JDBC
  2. XML–executes XML defined jobs
  3. OS–executes an operating system command
  • XML job definition language–allows ETL jobs to be easily defined in XML, enabling the use of widely available XML authoring tools and associated support for version control systems.
  • Centralized repository–supports multiple KETL instances to leverage job and parameter definitions.
  • Performance monitoring–collects historical and active job statistics in the repository, allowing comprehensive analysis of problematic jobs.
  • Comprehensive data source support–supports extracting and loading of relational, flat file and XML data sources, via JDBC and proprietary database APIs.
  • Scheduling engine–time-based and event-driven job execution
