Data Manipulation (including ETL)

Data Manipulation is the process of re-sorting, re-arranging and otherwise moving research data, without fundamentally changing it.

This is used both as a preparatory technique - i.e. as a precursor to some other activity - or as a means of exploring the data as an analytic tool in its own right.

ETL is the Acronym for the operation of Extract, Transform & Load - three database functions that are combined into one tool to pull data out of one database and place it into another database.

ETL is used to migrate data from one database to another, to convert databases from one format or type to another, and to form Data Warehouses.

Database Consultants can take your data, and transform it to your requirements.
