ETL | Extraction, Transformation and Loading

Extract, cleanse, transform, load and manage data from a single environment

SAS provides integrated ETL capabilities that enable organisations to extract transform and load data from across the enterprise to create consistent, accurate information.

An intuitive, point-and-click process design desktop makes it easy to build logical process workflows, quickly identify the input and output data flows, and create business rules in metadata, all of which enable the rapid generation of data warehouses, data marts and data streams.

SAS Data Integration includes a powerful, yet easy-to-use transformation language that supports collaboration, reuse of processes and common metadata. Transformation processes are callable through custom exits, message queues and Web services, so they are easily reusable in different projects in many different technology environments. Metadata is captured and documented throughout transformation and data integration processes and is available for immediate reuse.

SAS also provides unparalleled technical support and professional services, giving organisations the flexibility to go beyond the robust prepackaged transformations to build unique routines without fear of losing vendor support for custom work.
