Data Transformation

Maximise the return from your data

At some point all businesses need to transform their data in order to reduce risk and cost. This can be as a result of a divestment, the identification of Redundant, Outdated and Trivial (ROT) data or simply down to Government changes in regulations, as we saw with GDPR.

Reviewing both structured and unstructured datasets with organisations can be a complex procedure. This is because data often exists across multiple sources and legacy repositories.

 

Getting started with Data Transformation

You undertake Data Transformation in most cases to extract data from one source and convert it to a useable format is another destination.

The process is  known as ETL (Extract Transform Load) or ELT (Extract Load Transform). With the ETL process data is extracted from its source and then transformed before being loaded to the new location. In ELT models the data is not transformed on entry to the data lake but stored in its original raw format then transformed later.

How we transform data quickly

Utilising  Microsofts Azure Data Factory we provide your business with access to a service specifically built for data integration. Whatever your requirement and skill level, with our help you’ll be able to construct ETL and ELT processes code-free within an intuitive visual environment or write your own code if you prefer.

We can visually integrate data sources using more than 90+ natively built and maintenance-free connectors. This allows us to focus on your data, while the serverless integration service does the rest.
