Data Integration: News from Apatar

Filed under: Data Integration, ETL — Tags: — Olga Belokurskaya @ 7:11 am

Hi!

It’s Friday, and I’m, frankly, not about serious matters. So, I’ll share some news on what’s Apatar Team been about lately to help our users improve their data integration initiatives.

Our team has recently released the connector for ODBC sources, something that plenty of our users have been asking and waiting for. The fact that the connector was quite highly demanded kind of argues the talks heard for about couple of years of ODBC being an old and forgotten mean of accessing databases.

Well, actually we have created the connector for ODBC to ease and improve data integration for Apatar users. ODBC remains widely used in organizations and enterprises. As any technology, it, of course, has its pros and cons.
The main ODBC’s advantage is its universality – having appropriate drivers for a connection, users may access different databases they need. So, in fact, the connector for ODBC sources allows perform needed operations on data exactly in the sources user’s ODBC has access to. In other words, Apatar may have no connector for a particular database, but as soon as this database is among user’s ODBC sources, the user may integrate or synchronize data from this source with the data from other sources.

So I think, creation of the connector for ODBC sources, positively, was a great thing which may help users in their data integration and ETL initiatives.
