expressor Beefs Up Data Integration Platform; Extends Licensing to End Users

expressor software, a provider of data integration software, says it is shipping a new version of its flagship platform that expands its data warehousing, as well as a new licensing offer for business end users who wish to build their own queries.

The latest version of expressor 3.4, features three major areas of enhancement for the company's data integration platform, including a new rules editor, enhanced data warehousing and ETL (extract, transform and load) capabilities, and end user functionality.

With this new release, expressor provides integration support for a range of databases, Dr. Michael Waclawiczek, vice president of marketing and product management for expressor, tells 5 Minute Briefing. "We have also added major new features in support of data migration and data warehousing use cases targeted at all major relational database environments - and warehouse appliances from Teradata and Netezza."

New data warehousing and ETL features include lookup tables, which enable data records to be found using simple lookup rules within an expressor dataflow; transpose operators that help users transpose one input record to many output records and vice versa with a simple user interface; and native database merge support on write tables.

The new release also targets data-intensive BI environments, according to Dave Mohr, vice president of sales. "The expressor Semantic Framework will enable BI developers to incorporate data faster and more efficiently than with traditional ETL tools that only allow for point-to-point data mapping," he says. "BI users are enabled with a simpler metadata environment coupled with more data that can be used to support their analyses."

Release 3.4 also includes a new "Desktop Edition" license that enables users to integrate expressor ETL applications with the Windows task scheduler on their desktop.

"Our customers and clients are primarily mid-market accounts that require flexible, easy-to-use, and affordable ETL software for these and other types of data integration projects," says Waclawiczek.
