The Forrester Wave™ Enterprise ETL, Q1 2012

Data movement is critical in any organization to support data management initiatives, such as data warehousing (DW), business intelligence (BI), application migrations and upgrades, master data management (MDM), and other initiatives that focus on data integration. Besides moving data, ETL supports complex transformations like cleansing, reformatting, aggregating, and converting very large volumes of data from many sources. In a mature integration architecture, ETL complements change data capture (CDC) and data replication technologies to support real-time data requirements and combines with application integration tools to support messaging and transactional integration. Although ETL is still used extensively to support traditional scheduled batch data feeds into DW and BI environments, the scope of ETL has evolved over the past five years to support new and emerging data management initiatives, including:

- Data virtualization

- Cloud integration

- Big Data

- Real-time data warehousing

- Data migration and application retirement

- Master data management
