Toronto, ON — May 19, 2020 — Next Pathway Inc., the Automated Cloud Migration company, today announced the release of SHIFT™ TRANSLATOR version 4.0. This is a significant release as it provides the unique capability to automatically translate complex ETL (extract, transform and load) pipelines to run in the cloud. Previously, the only option available was to manually re-write the ETL pipelines, an expensive, lengthy and risky approach.
SHIFT™ TRANSLATOR version 4.0 includes support for commercial ETL tools like Informatica and DataStage, providing companies with a solution that accelerates cloud migration projects where customers are reliant on third-party ETL tools for data transformation within the data warehouse environment. SHIFT™ TRANSLATOR automatically translates all aspects of legacy ETL pipelines, including embedded SQL, source/target connectors, orchestration logic, and other XML-based attributes, in minutes.
Historically, the only option for companies has been to upgrade to the latest editions of the vendor’s ETL software that can run in the cloud, or manually refactor the ETL code. Both options introduce major complexity to the data warehouse migration, including increased costs, timelines and operational risks. With SHIFT™ TRANSLATOR version 4.0, companies can take this part of the migration off the critical path by automating the translation and repointing of existing legacy ETL pipelines to the cloud, be it Snowflake, AWS, Google Cloud or other platforms.
“We’ve seen companies who want to get to the cloud and decommission their legacy data warehouses stuck when their environments are heavily reliant on commercial ETL tools”, said Chetan Mathur, Chief Executive Officer at Next Pathway. “With this latest release of SHIFT™ TRANSLATOR , we’re solving another major bottleneck for our customers by automating the translation of legacy ETL pipelines and repointing them to the cloud, helping accelerate end-to-end migration timelines while keeping costs down.”
