Data Integrator

BusinessObjects Data Integrator

Business Objects's Data Integrator is a data integration and ETL tool that was previously known as ActaWorks. The Data Integrator product consists primarily of a Data Integrator Job Server and the Data Integrator Designer. It is commonly used for building data marts, ODS systems and data warehouses, etc.

Additional transformations can be performed by using the DI scripting language to use any of the already-provided data-handling functions to define inline complex transforms or building custom functions.

Data Integrator Designer stores the created jobs and projects in a Repository. However, Data Integrator Designer also facilitates team-based ETL development by including a Central Repository version control system. Although this version control system is not as robust as standalone VCSs, it does provide the basic check-in/check-out, get latest, version labeling and undo checkout functionality.

Data Integrator Job Server

The DI Job Server executes, monitors and schedules jobs that have been created by using the Designer.

Web Administrator

The DI web administrator is a web interface that allows system administrators and database administrator to manage the different repositories, the Central Repository, Metadata, the Job Server and Web Services.
