expressor software, a leading provider of free and affordable data integration software, today announced the general availability of expressor Studio 3.2, which features four major enhancements to its free desktop ETL tool:
- expressor Studio 3.2 ships with a new, built-in graphical drawing layer for creating expressor dataflows. This important new capability removes Studio’s dependency on Microsoft Visio to further simplify the download and install process of the product.
- The new SQL Query operator enables users to define SQL queries in expressor Studio and execute them in the source database prior to transforming the data in expressor. By offloading some of the data processing to the source database, users have maximum flexibility to design their applications for versatility and performance.
- Constraints extend expressor’s Semantic Types capabilities by allowing users to set pattern matching rules or min/max values on individual attributes of a Semantic Type. Records that fail a constraint test at runtime may be captured, directed to a file, database table, or processed further to ameliorate data quality issues.
- Operator level error handling is now supported in addition to errors that are captured on Semantic Type constraints. expressor 3.2 users can abort an entire dataflow or redirect the record to a reject file on error.
"expressor software is made up of a team of extraordinary experts, who are dedicated to serving their customers and their successful use of the expressor ETL tool,” said Lystra McCormack, IT Manager, Western World Insurance Company. “We recently purchased the expressor data integration software and attended the preview webinar for the 3.2 product. We are excited about this latest release, particularly for the optimum agility it provides, the concepts of constraints/rules, and ability to incorporate complex SQL Select statements. expressor Studio 3.2 is guaranteed to accelerate our development time frame for our tiered data integration projects.”
