"A near tenfold increase in productivity compared with hand-coded ETL. . ."
"We needed a modern, sustainable metadata technology that automated and integrated our data warehousing. . . . From an initial market scan of around 30 offerings, we conducted a paper-based assessment to narrow the choice to 3. We then conducted a proof-of-concept for those three using a real business use case. BimlFlex was the clear winner and demonstrated a near tenfold increase in productivity compared with hand-coded ETL in SAS or SSIS."
"You should consider the BimlFlex solution. . ."
"BimlFlex makes sophisticated Data Warehouse technologies like Data Vault surprisingly affordable, and we are regularly seeing new features to reduce time to build. In my view, for any new Data Warehouse project, you should use metadata oriented tools for ETL automation. And specifically, you should consider the BimlFlex solution."
