Why are certain ETL tools not on this list?
It’s our intention to include all significant ETL products in our report. However, we depend on the full cooperation of the vendors. To ensure the high quality of our survey, we request that they fill out our detailed questionnaire, that they make available a testing environment for our researchers, and that they take part in one or more Q&A sessions with our researchers. In all but two cases, vendors have gladly shown their willingness to cooperate with our study. The following vendors declined to cooperate:
- Ab Initio: will not cooperate with us in any way
- SeeBeyond ETL: has not replied to our requests
ETL tools and the data warehouse
Many ETL tools were originally developed to make the task of the data warehouse developer easier and more fun. Developers are spared the arduous task of handwriting SQL code, replacing it with an easy drag-and-drop interface to develop a data warehouse.
Today, the top ETL tools in the market have vastly expanded their functionality beyond data warehousing and ETL. They now contain extended functionalities for data profiling, data cleansing, Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), Big Data processing, data governance, and master data management.

ETL is not enough, you need BI software too
ETL and data integration software is primarily meant to perform the extraction, transformation, and loading of data. Once the data is available, for example in a data warehouse or OLAP cube, Business Intelligence software is commonly used to analyze and visualize the data. This type of software also provides reporting, data discovery, data mining, and dashboarding functionality. Passionned Group also follows the Business Intelligence market closely.
