Informatica Power Center
Informatica PowerCenter is a widely used extraction, transformation and loading (ETL) tool used in building enterprise data warehouses. The components within Informatica PowerCenter aid in extracting data from its source, transforming it as per business requirements and loading it into a target data warehouse. Informatica PowerCenter is produced by Informatica Corp.
The main components of Informatica Power Center are its client tools, server, repository server and repository. The PowerCenter server and repository server make up the ETL layer, which completes the ETL processing. The Power Center server executes tasks based on work flow created by work flow managers. The work flows can be monitored using a work flow monitor. Jobs inside the program are designed in a mapping designer, which creates mapping between source and target. Mapping is a pictorial representation about flow of data from source to target. Transformations such as aggregation, filtering and joining are major examples of transformation.
SQL Server Integration Services
Microsoft Integration Services is a platform for building enterprise-level data integration and data transformations solutions. Use Integration Services to solve complex business problems by copying or downloading files, loading data warehouses, cleansing and mining data, and managing SQL Server objects and data.
Integration Services can extract and transform data from a wide variety of sources such as XML data files, flat files, and relational data sources, and then load the data into one or more destinations.
Integration Services includes a rich set of built-in tasks and transformations, graphical tools for building packages, and the Integration Services Catalog database, where you store, run, and manage packages.
You can use the graphical Integration Services tools to create solutions without writing a single line of code. You can also program the extensive Integration Services object model to create packages programmatically and code custom tasks and other package objects.
