Extract, transform and load (ETL) is a complete set of functions combined into one solution that allows your business to extract data from multiple sources, transform it as necessary and load it into a data warehouse or database for further analysis or distribution.
Extracting the data correctly is vital to the overall success of the entire ETL process and it is generally converted into a single format ready for transformation. The data is transformed using a set of rules and/or functions as required by the end target. The data, once transformed, is then loaded into a database or data warehouse where it is then ready of the end user.
