SAS, the leader in business intelligence, announced major new enhancements to its market-leading enterprise data integration platform. With the creation of SAS Enterprise ETL Server, SAS is delivering a powerful end-to-end enterprise data integration and management platform for designing, managing and improving data warehouses, and greatly simplifying the extraction, transformation and loading (ETL) process. The announcement was made at a press conference at SeUGI 21, this year’s annual SAS European Users Group International conference.

Data integration is the single biggest obstacle to achieving return on data warehousing and business intelligence software investment. "Data integration today, quite ironically, is about much more than just integrating data,” said Doug Laney, vice president of technology research services at META Group. “Our research indicates that organizations are increasingly on the lookout for enterprise-class solutions that encompass robust meta data management, embody data quality features, include built-in analytic functions and demonstrate a tangible ‘awareness’ of popular business application data structures.”
