But general managers and consultants will also benefit from it. What exactly is the use for you as a manager, professional, or (external) consultant of the ETL & Data Integration Guide? The most popular applications of this guide are:

1. Vendor and tool selection: easily compose a shortlist

Evaluate each vendor based on functionality and market dominance. Apply the principle of “what matters most should matter most” and draw your own conclusions. Quickly compile a long- and shortlist of vendors that qualify and meet your selection criteria and specific business situation. Closely monitor the performance of the selected ETL software vendor(s) that best address the needs and requirements of your organization, division, or business unit.

ETL Guide insightsFigure 1: Initially you see the ranking of the various suppliers on 9 main categories, but you can easily drill down and zoom in on detailed aspects. The ratings presented in the above figure are not complete and should not be used to draw any conclusion.

With the self-service analysis module (an extra option available at a small additional fee) you manage everything yourself. You select the ETL tool vendors you want to keep an eye on and you choose the functionality you want. This way you compose your own top 3 ETL tools based on, for example, 50 criteria that are specifically important to you. Drill down to four levels to get to the core of the field and learn all the ins and outs of the most important ETL processes, such as data integration, data migration, data replication and data governance.
