I need a low-cost ETL tool to move data between systems. What’s my best option?

There are a wide range of ETL tools available, but there may already be one in your arsenal that you didn’t even know about!  SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is the ETL Tool included with SQL Server Standard and Enterprise Editions. This means if you have either of these licenses, and most companies in our industries do, you can operate SSIS on the same instance for no additional licensing cost.

More importantly, SSIS has a robust set of tools that make ETL easy for a variety of development skillsets.  Don’t have SQL or prefer to use a cloud service? Consider options such as Jitterbit or Scribe. Whichever option you consider, be sure to accurately scope your desired results against the plus/deltas of either architecture. As always, we’re here to help you understand the requirements of your integration needs so you can make the most informed decision, so don’t hesitate to reach out.
