Why Read This Report

In Forrester's 60-criteria evaluation of enterprise extract, transform, and load (ETL) vendors, we found that Informatica, IBM, Oracle, and SAP maintain leadership positions thanks to their ability to innovate and scale to support complex data integration environments. SAS and Ab Initio also emerged as Leaders; they have strong capabilities in scalability, performance, and connectivity and provide a variety of integration options. Another Leader, Talend, was the only open source ETL vendor we evaluated; it supported deployments of moderate scale and complexity at significant software license cost savings compared with the other front-runners. Pervasive Software, Microsoft, and iWay Software are Strong Performers; each offers viable options for many organizations looking for unique — and, in the cases of Pervasive and Microsoft, very cost-effective — data integration capabilities to support moderate to complex deployments.
