Deciding the physical implementation of ETL workflows

Vasiliki Tziovara, Panos Vassiliadis, Alkis Simitsis
2007 Proceedings of the ACM tenth international workshop on Data warehousing and OLAP - DOLAP '07  
In this paper, we deal with the problem of determining the best possible physical implementation of an ETL workflow, given its logical-level description and an appropriate cost model as inputs.  ...  We further extend this technique by intentionally introducing sorter activities in the workflow in order to search for alternative physical implementations with lower cost.  ...  The objective of this work is to identify the best possible physical implementation for a given logical ETL workflow.  ...

Scheduling strategies for efficient ETL execution

Anastasios Karagiannis, Panos Vassiliadis, Alkis Simitsis
2013 Information Systems  
Extract-transform-load (ETL) workflows model the population of enterprise data warehouses with information gathered from a large variety of heterogeneous data sources.  ...  In this paper, we deal with the problem of scheduling the execution of ETL activities (a.k.a. transformations, tasks, operations), with the goal of minimizing ETL execution time and allocated memory.  ...  The workflow is an abstract design at the logical level, which has to be implemented physically, i.e., to be mapped to a combination of executable programs/scripts that perform the ETL workflow.  ...

Managing Continuous Data Integration Flows

Josef Schiefer, Jun-Jang Jeng, Robert M. Bruckner
2003 International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering  
A particularly difficult aspect of measuring the performance of workflows is the dissemination of event data and its transformation into business metrics.  ...  The proposed architecture takes full advantage of existing J2EE (Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition) technology and uses an ETL container for the event data processing.  ...  The authors propose for the implementation of the ETL processes the usage of workflow management systems (WFMSs) and active rules which are executed under certain operational semantics.  ...

Value-driven Approach for Designing Extended Data Warehouses

Nabila Berkani, Ladjel Bellatreche, Selma Khouri, Carlos Ordonez
2019 International Workshop on Data Warehousing and OLAP  
In this paper, first, we conceptualize the variety of internal and external sources and study its impact on the ETL phase to ease the value capturing.  ...  Decline was signaled by the appearance of Big Data. It is therefore essential to find other challenges that will contribute to the revival of DW while taking advantage of the V's of Big Data.  ...  (iv) Physical level: proposed scenario obliges designers to manage variety of LOD according the physical implementations of DW: at unification formalism level [2, 6, 10] or at querying level ([11, 13  ...

Implementation of business intelligence tools using open source approach

Carlos Gameiro
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 Workshop on Open Source and Design of Communication - OSDOC '11  
This repository is the source of all business intelligence and implementing it requires the right software tools, essential for the data warehouse.  ...  The two ETL solutions used were: • Pentaho Kettle Data Integration Community Editions (Open Source Software) • SQL Server 2005 Integrations Services (SSIS) Enterprise Edition (Proprietary Software) The  ...  It uses one or more file packages to implement the workflow process, but if too many workflows are present in the same package the design of the workflow will become heavier.  ...

Benchmarking ETL Workflows [chapter]

Alkis Simitsis, Panos Vassiliadis, Umeshwar Dayal, Anastasios Karagiannis, Vasiliki Tziovara
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Each ETL tool uses its own technique for the design and implementation of an ETL workflow, making the task of assessing ETL tools extremely difficult.  ...  We also identify the main points of interest in designing, implementing, and maintaining ETL workflows.  ...  Then, each activity of the workflow is physically implemented using various algorithmic methods, each with different cost in terms of time requirements or system resources (e.g., CPU, memory, disk space  ...

2014 Proceedings of the 17th International Workshop on Data Warehousing and OLAP - DOLAP '14  
Based on existing work, we raise the level of abstraction for the conceptual representation of ETL operations and we show how process quality characteristics can generate specific patterns on the process  ...  Current approaches for the modeling and optimization of ETL processes provide platform-independent optimization solutions for the (semi-)automated transition among different abstraction levels, focusing  ...  In the same direction, the work in [14] provides a classification of ETL activities, through investigating the particular characteristics of ETL workflows and introducing a formal representation of workflows  ...

In addition, other metrics can affect the choice of a strategy; e.g., higher freshness reduces the time window for recovery. The design space is too large for informal, ad-hoc approaches.  ...  Typically, design work on ETL has focused on performance as the sole metric to make sure that the ETL process finishes within an allocated time window.  ...  Abstract part of an ETL workflow Fig. 3.  ...
