DB Software Laboratory announces a new release of Visual Importer ETL
DB Software Laboratory, the world’s leading innovator in data integration and management technologies, today announced the release of 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.
Comparing to the previous release there are three major improvements:
  • Massive performance gains - Up to 7 times faster
  • Support for Unicode

Better integration for Oracle databases

We put a lot of effort into optimizing the data import engine of “Visual Importer ETL” and as a result, it is much smaller, efficient and faster now.

For example, loading delimited text file into MS SQL Sever via BCP 500000 lines

Visual Importer ETL Standard version

  • 2229 records per second
  • 3 minutes and 44 seconds to load the data

Visual Importer ETL Standard version

  • 14347.58 records per second
  • 34 seconds to load the data

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.
