I recently announced on this blog the start of a project called InnovatorETL (in french on January 25th and in english on January 28th). The aim of this project is to provide tools for migration to Aras Innovator and from diverse source like excel files, Access database, other PLM datastore… So far the project is running pretty well. The version 0.1 specification was delivered right on time as planned. The first beta release is 15 days late because of an issue we add on the SOAP sending module from Talend. Collaboration made possible to fix this issue as Anthony Ponceot provided the solution to replace the SOAP module with a tJava module in Talend to fix the issue.
In order to show you the result of this first Beta Version and how it could help you to migrate some data from your existing system to Aras Innovator in order to test this PLM solution, here is a short video that shows how to use it.
Feel free to join the project on http://innovatoretl.codeplex.com to either participate on Specifications, discussions, test, development… This is fully Open Source.
