Overall Satisfaction with Centerprise Data Integrator

We convert data from various sources to our ERP system. I use Centerprise for two jobs. 1) take the data from reports provided and transform them to delimited files that can be imported into our ERP system. 2) Transform the data into an Excel spreadsheet into a format that may be compared to data already imported into our ERP system, to verify that the data did get into the database correctly.
  • Parses fields from reports. Vertical reports can be transformed into one single row in Excel.
  • Process PDF reports. Very helpful. So far, the best tool for this task that I have used.
  • Easy to use. No need have a strong developer background to use.
  • PDF reports are tricky at times. The columns line up when printed on paper. But Centerprise does not always see the columns this way.
  • Conversions are quicker.
  • Validation of the conversion is simplified
  • When working with a client it is an excellent source to show them how we got to the results we have.
I looked at a few other options. But honestly, do not remember their names. They were excluded quickly when they came up short on functionality.
Before this tool, we used VBscript, and Excel to parse reports. These methods were much more time consuming.
Text reports are normally easy. Handles data that breaks between pages very, very well.
