We are a young, new company on the market. We are starting to open up new markets in other countries (Europe).
It somewhat is a challenge for us: we can't share our data and mysql database between all our different services. So here is my question: do you think it would be possible to find an ETL program that could work in the cloud?
It would not have to be too complex, but sturdy and working as a Software as a Service.
So as I understand, what you need is an online database program able to perform ETL tasks, that works in the cloud.
There are a few companies out there able to perform what you are asking. What I could propose is a company called Talend. With Talend On Demand.
This solution is based on the open source Talend Open Studio. You are offered a collaborative platform to work on, meaning that all your teams in different countries will be working on the same database on a secured web service.
