December 19, 2013, San Jose, CA – DataSelf Corporation, the leading provider of analytics and business intelligence (BI) solutions for small to medium-sized companies, today announced the release of DataSelf ETL 2013.4. This release expands the design philosophy of “less is more”, as well as addresses system reliability and performance.
This latest ETL builds upon the new import wizard featured in version 2013.002, further simplifying data import and creation of data sources from MS Excel, MS SQL Server and MS Access. “By containing the entire process within the DataSelf ETL, and therefore eliminating the need to create external DSNs, we’ve simplified not only stand-alone installations, but also the ease in which DataSelf is deployed in test, development and production environments,“ said Joni Girardi, DataSelf’s CEO, “these new features complement our ultra-light data warehouse and further confirm our reputation for solid technology with a light footprint.”
DataSelf has completely redesigned the Modify Table wizard, significantly simplifying the process of changing the names of tables and their fields, as well as changing the data types of table fields, so much so that in internal benchmarks, the new wizard was shown to reduce the average number of clicks required to modify table structures by more than 50%.
With performance in mind, the ETL now supports all integer data types (tinyint, smallint, int, and bigint) which should improve speed, disk space utilization and indexing of ultralight data warehouses.
Given DataSelf BI’s increasingly mission critical role, notifications of system operations have been simplified and improved, as has refresh report email setup, which is now a single step. Girardi goes on to say “this release further demonstrates our commitment to providing our users with tools that while sophisticated, require little IT intervention and simplify the maintenance of high-end analytics solutions. Furthermore, this release contains a variety of user requested fixes and enhancements such as improved speed when mapping tables, fields and table unions.”
As an additional value, DataSelf provides comprehensive ETL and Tableau templates to business systems such as Everest Software, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Sage CRM, Sage 100 (MAS 90 / MAS 200), Sage 300 (Accpac), Sage 500 (MAS 500), Sage Pro, Sage PFW, Sage X3, and Swiftpage SalesLogix.
