ETL as a concept sounds very well suited to the world of Reference Data Distribution. Extraction, Transformation and Loading all sound like good things to do when distributing Reference Data. This is why a lot of the ETL vendors show up at the usual Reference Data conferences. It all sounds logical. And lots of Financial Institutions are using it for Reference Data Distribution, usually because there is an available license and it is notionally “free” to use. This all sounds straightforward?
