mrc Press Release

mrc adds improved ETL capabilities to m-Power

June 2014 Lombard, IL Today, software developer mrc announces improved Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) capabilities included in m-Power's upcoming July enhancement. m-Power is a web application development platform that businesses use across their organizations to create web applications such as report-writing, Business Intelligence, executive dashboards, e-commerce, customer portals, and mobile applications to name a few.

ETL refers to the process of extracting and manipulating source data and loading it into a target database. Businesses use ETL to integrate data from multiple applications or data sources, and place that data in a centralized database. As database options expand and more businesses move their applications to the cloud, the need for ETL capabilities increases. More and more, businesses face the challenge of integrating data across multiple sources.

This new enhancement addresses these growing data integration challenges. With m-Power’s improved ETL capabilities, users can easily pull data from multiple sources and create powerful data warehouses. These capabilities help m-Power users:

  1. Create reports and BI applications over multiple databases
    As businesses increasingly rely on multiple databases, their need for reports that pull data from multiple sources increases. With this new enhancement, m-Power users can now pull data from multiple databases into one centralized data warehouse, and then create BI applications and reports over that data.

    When coupled with m-Power’s scheduling features, this enhancement becomes even more powerful. Users can set scheduled tasks that automatically update the data warehouse with recent data, and then automatically run and email new reports on a set schedule.


  2. Take advantage of the cloud
    As businesses move more applications to the cloud—or move to Software as a Service (SaaS) options—keeping their data in sync becomes a challenge. This enhancement helps businesses address this issue, using ETL to transfer data from one location to another and keep data in sync across multiple sources.


  3. Retain historical data across applications/systems
    In many industries, companies must keep historical data for compliance reasons. However, as companies rely on a growing number of disparate systems and applications, maintaining this historical data becomes more complex. With this new enhancement, m-Power users can automatically extract data from their various applications and systems, transform it into the necessary format, and place that data into a database table for safe keeping. In this way, companies can maintain historical data across a variety of applications and systems.


"As businesses use an ever-increasing number of data sources, data integration and reporting becomes more complex," says Tyler Wassell, mrc's Manager of Software Development. "This new enhancement gives m-Power users a simple method for integrating data and creating reports over disparate sources."
