"With over 3,000 unique expressor Studio downloads and a rapidly growing number of new users every day, we are confident that this edition will provide great benefits as applications become more demanding and complex."

“The new expressor platform is built around our easy‐to‐use, free expressor Studio application, which gives you everything you need to develop and deploy your ETL applications," added Michael Waclawiczek, VP of Marketing, expressor. "Our new Standard Edition targets Studio users who have a need to collaborate with other developers, manage their projects throughout application revisions, and run their ETL jobs on dedicated Windows Server machines."
