PROJECTS

Replace Informatica ETL with Custom Java application

August 2012 - June 2013

Project Lead/ Scrum Master/ Agile Coach

In my application we were using Informatica to parse trade XML files and store them into a DW. Informatica used its own internal parser which created many complexities including repeat database trips. Also Informatica does not have its own interface with XML DB so there was a java application doing that job for ETL (extraction). I used a different XML parser based on XPATH to parse these files. And created data files which can be bulk loaded into DW. Advantages: 20 times more faster parse and load performance. DEV cycle speeded up by at least 5 times. Lesser or rare bottlenecks in Production which reduced need for manual intervention and incident management.
