A few years ago, business Intelligence software in general, and data integration software in particular was very
expensive. Therefore, it was only accessible to large enterprises.
Recently, this market has been severely disrupted by a number of open source products and companies. Combined with the success of a number of open source database products, data warehousing and business intelligence are more and more becoming a commodity that can successfully be used even by smaller businesses.
In this 45 minute session I will demonstrate a number of practical data integration solutions with Kettle. Kettle (a.k.a. Pentaho Data Integration) is an open source (LGPL), cross-platform data integration tool written in java. It is part of the open source Pentaho business intelligence suite (GPL), and can be run standalone or in conjunction with the Pentaho stack.
I studied Molecular Biology, but I’m professionally occupied as Web Application Developer, Information and Business Process Analyst, and Business Intelligence Guy. I have worked for Inter Access, MySQL AB, Sun Microsystems, and I currently work for Strukton Rail as application/BI developer.
