Catalog of ETL and EL-T tools

As companies collect increasing amounts of data, the latter tends to end up scattered around various different sources. For this reason, there is a need to distribute data from various data sources to the data warehouse.

This explains the recent explosion in the past few years of ETL/ELT tools. (internal, open-source, and SaaS). This new trend is not going to stop, and we'd rather bring visibility and structure soon.

At Castor, we believe the first step to structure the ETL tools market, is more transparency. For that reason, we put up a list of all the ETL/EL-T tools we heard of. More context on this analysis and the state of the ETL tools ecosystem here.
