ETL design and data integration


ETL processes and data integration

The "ETL" (Extract, Transform, Load) process refers to a succession of actions related to data processing: extracting data from many sources, transforming raw data into usable data, and then loading into a data warehouse that can be queried for analysis or modeling.

In a more concrete and detailed way, CIOs manipulate a multitude of data, whether structured or not. These come from many sources: internal and external databases, operating systems, activity or connection logs, etc.

It is important to be able to centralize the data and to do this, the Data Warehouse or the Data Lake are the most important tools. The extraction and load of Data through the ETL Pipeline mechanism is accompanied by a transformation used to standardize, differentiate, sort and any other necessary actions.
