SeETL (Pronounced as See-TL) DesignTime:
Is the next giant step forward on the path to
Is set to further transform the productivity levels and slash the costs of
implementing Business Intelligence Systems.
Enables, for the first time, the ETL Architect to generate ETL 'code' directly
from the 'Mapping Spreadsheet'!!
With SeETL there is no intermediate step required for some kind of
'programmer' to 'translate' the mapping spreadsheet into a GUI or code of some
kind. The mappings that the ETL Architect types into the spreadsheet
will be propagated forward to the SeETL RunTime unchanged and untouched by any
This tool does no less than consign 95% of all 'ETL Programming' to the pages of
the history books.
SeETL eliminates the 'next most expensive' component of constructing a
data warehouse with the SeETL RunTime, the process of converting the mapping
spreadsheet to the views required by the SeETL RunTime.
SeETL consists of two components.
The SeETL DesignTime Spreadsheet.
The SeETL DesignTime Software.
However, the SeETL Spreadsheet is copyrighted. It is a condition of
use that each user of the spreadsheet register on our free support forum.
You can register on our 'Support->Forums' menu item. Support on the
free support forum is provided on a 'best effort basis' and users are
encouraged to support each other. There is also a 'fee' support forum for
priority support from our consulting staff. The annual 'fee' support charge is
a nominal amount. See our Support page for further details.
The reasons we have decided to copyright SeETL are:
We want to know who is using SeETL.
We want to encourage users of SeETL to use the SeETL RunTime product.
We are very excited about SeETL. The main reasons
The SeETL spreadsheet has been built as a generic place to store any ETL
The SeETL Software is written in VB.NET and has been written to be
able to generically read workbooks, extract the data from the workbook and then
perform processing based on directives and data provided.
Therefore, any activities that can be defined as 'data' that can
be captured in a spreadsheet workbook and interpreted by the generator
can now be automated. This means SeETL can grow to perform virtually any
repetitive task in the development of ETL processing.
SeETL was developed in the real world of one of the largest and most complicated
'Version 1.0' releases of the Sybase IWS data models ever undertaken.
The Staging Area contains more than 4,500 fields.
There are over 2,500 fields mapped to the Sybase IWS model.
There are more than 100 dimension tables and 80 fact tables.
This is a huge1.0 release for any Enterprise Data Warehouse. And all the ETL is
generated by SeETL!! We are able to regenerate all the SeETL directly from the
mapping spreadsheet as well as run the entire batch suite based on the batch
schedule in SeETL. SeETL was written as a part of the project to assist us to
be more productive. The best way to develop new development tools!! We
hope you like it!!
