Three recent innovations of Actian Data Integration-tools and the version history

Recently, we see a negative evolution with respect to ETL & Data Integration functionality and support for operating systems, cloud platforms and connectivity. The latest innovations are in the areas of data connectivity > redshift, data infrastructure > cloud platforms and data connectivity > google bigquery.

We investigated Actian’s latest updates of its complete product portfolio. Below you can see the respective version numbers of all the known versions of the ETL & Data Integration products of Actian:

Behind each product we notate the version numbers, the most recent updates are listed first.

Can you easily determine the licensing costs of Actian Avalanche, Actian Dataconnect and Actian Dataflow?

In many cases, it can be difficult to determine the licensing costs of Actian ETL & Data Integration because it depends on the country, the number of users (or the number of CPUs in the case of server software), the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. And before the end of a fiscal quarter of Actian, you may be able to look forward to a decent discount. In addition, nowadays it is recommended running the software in the cloud, for the most part, you only pay for your consumption then. The purchase cost of Actian Avalanche, Actian Dataconnect and Actian Dataflow may not be the largest cost item, but maintenance and support of course do limit your future investment scope.
