Implementing Metadata-Driven ETL Using Semantic Types
expressor uses a unique and intuitive business-centric metadata framework, called the expressor Semantic Framework, to streamline and simplify many data integration challenges. At the most basic level, the Semantic Framework allows organizations to maintain a business-centric view of their data even as they move and transform that data; however, this sophisticated metadata framework also enables many powerful capabilities, which are detailed in this white paper.
To illustrate these capabilities, expressor’s Founding Engineer and Chief Architect, Bill Kehoe, walks through the creation of a sample ETL application and addresses a handful of hypothetical requirements. Also as part of this discussion, Kehoe explains how organizations can create a repository that can be filled with libraries of powerful and reusable data objects—called Semantic Types—which can be shared to help improve development efficiency.
This technical white paper shows how business users can benefit from using the expressor Semantic Framework—yet also shows how more advanced users can benefit from expressor’s powerful architecture.
