Mark Madsen, who has an excellent blog on various DW/BI topics, has posted slides from his Portland DAMA presentation on selecting ETL vendors. The slides are EXTREMELY informative and I suggest anyone considering doing some ETL work to browse through his work. Mark, thanks for such an excellent contribution, and I’m sorry I missed your presentation! I believe Mark works with TDWI on ETL tool topics, so consider signing up for one of his sessions.
My favorite from the slides, which had me laughing out loud, was the image to describe the proclomation that EII can be a “virtual data warehouse” on page 12! Excellent!
