DB Software Laboratory has released Visual Importer ETL, the latest version of the visual integration software for the Windows platforms. The application combines ETL and design capabilities all within one environment, significantly simplifying the creation and deployment of complex data warehouses and marts.

There are four major improvements:

  • Significant performance gains
  • Support for Unicode
  • Better integration for Oracle databases
  • Support for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Interbase/Firebird

As a result of our optimization of the data import engine of Visual Importer ETL, the program is much smaller, efficient, and faster now. For example, loading delimited text file into MS SQL Sever via BCP 500000 lines.

Another important change is the ability to load data from Utf8, Utf16BE, Utf16LE files with or without BOM. There is also full support for international characters for ODBC connections, MS SQL Servers and Oracle databases.

Visual Importer ETL features a well-organized, straightforward program interface and simplified navigation, requiring no specialized programming skills in database deployment. By completely automating all stages of data processing, the application eliminates the need for any regular intervention and upkeep.

Other important Visual Importer ETL features include:

  • Easily extract and transform data from one database or file to another
  • Ultra-fast processing of input data
  • Comprehensive error log
  • Rejected records file
  • Integrated Expressions builder
  • Calculations during loading process
  • Pivot tables loading
  • Mapping editor
  • Package designer

Visual Importer ETL runs under Windows NT4.0/2000/XP/2008 and is priced started at $100 for the standard version. Registered customers are entitled to free updates and technical support. The 30-day fully functional free evaluation version of the program is available at http://www.dbsoftlab.com.
