How DataBridger works:

DataBridger’s extraction, transformation and load (ETL) engine “Warehouse” installs on your source and target servers where databases and files reside. Data moves peer to peer without the need for a data hub, ensuring rapid data movement directly between sources and targets.

DataBridger’s, “Studio” GUI-development tool resides on your Windows PC. Studio is an easy to use tool built by Business Intelligence experts. Mappings created in Studio provide logic for data selection, cleansing, manipulation and movement.

Warehouse Scripts can be executed either locally on the Windows-based machine or on remote server(s). Data moves across the network directly to the target via TCP/IP. Scripts may be scheduled via Studio to run on remote platforms.  Studio stores run audits so users can learn how data loads performed or view them real time.
