Extract and Load

The Sentinel Platform can collect, read and migrate data from data sources or structures such as SQL or NoSQL databases, Data Lakes or XML files. 

It can identify updates or changes to data to avoid constant whole data set refreshes. 

It will then place the data into the target system, typically a cloud data warehouse, where it is ready to be analysed by BI and data analytics tools, or Sentinel solutions such as Supporting Families.

Sentinel supports both transformation during Extract Transform & Load (ETL) or after loading Extract Load & Transform (ELT).

Extract data from your sources to reduce data silos

By extracting from multiple disparate locations data containing essential information can be centralized, eradicating data silos - blind spots - that can cause errors, and operational issues. As access and visibility is increased, with appropriate control, the risks of hidden information and operational disconnection are reduced. A powerful, simple, solution to a complex problem.  


Only update what you need to with Change Data Capture (CDC)

Change data capture allows you to keep your systems up-to-date with changes without needing to copy your entire database. Intelligently detect data changes and apply those directly to your target system
