Workflow Automation and Job Scheduling
With a built-in job scheduler, Astera Centerprise allows you to schedule anything from a simple data transformation job to a complex workflow comprising of several subflows. Leveraging process orchestration capabilities of the data integration software, you can sequence integration and transformation jobs, which can be executed serially or in parallel on multiple servers. Other built-in workflow features include SQL execution, outside program execution, FTP uploads and downloads, and email.
Pushdown Optimization for Maximum Performance
With Astera Centerprise, a data transformation job can be pushed down into a relational database, where appropriate, to make optimal use of database resources and improve performance. This, in turn, helps businesses better manage processing needs, save more time, and boost developer productivity.
Industrial-Strength, Parallel Processing Engine
Featuring a cluster-based architecture and a parallel processing ETL engine, Astera Centerprise allows data transformation jobs to be run in parallel. This way, the whole dataflow, or parts of it, is processed in parallel on multiple nodes, with each having a part of the dataflows. As a result, you experience unparalleled performance even when processing large datasets.
Vast Selection of Connectors
Astera Centerprise features a vast collection of built-in connectors for both modern and traditional data sources. From simple CSV, Excel, or fixed length files, relational databases, hierarchical EDI and XML files, legacy formats, to enterprise applications, cloud solutions, and data warehouses, it’s all there, ready to be used.
Instant Data Preview
With Instant Data Preview, Astera Centerprise provides you an insight into the validity of the data mappings you have created. Using the feature, you can inspect a sample of the data being processed at each step of the transformation process. This, in turn, allows you to promptly identify and fix any mapping errors before the job is executed.
Extensive Library of Pre-Built Transformations
Astera Centerprise dramatically simplifies the process of transforming complex hierarchical data with its visual, drag-and-drop environment and broad selection of built-in transformations. These transformations can be strung together to create a complete dataflow and automated using the built-in job scheduling and automation features.
Drag-and-Drop, Code-Free Mapping Environment
Astera Centerprise features a visual, drag-and-drop interface that provides advance-level functionality for development, debugging, and testing in a code-free environment. The data integration platform offers the same level of usability to both developers and businesses with user-friendly features like instant data preview, built-in transformations, and native connectivity to various data sources.
Data Profiling and Validation
Using the built-in data profiling features of Astera Centerprise, you can easily examine your source data and get detailed information about its structure, quality, and integrity. Custom data quality rules can also be defined to validate incoming data and identify missing or invalid records.
On-Premise and Cloud Deployment
Kickstart your data management projects faster with an enterprise-grade solution that can quickly be deployed on-premise or in the cloud. The ability to containerize the application, along with its compatibility to both Linux and Windows machines, makes it a truly platform-agnostic solution.
