Headquartered in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, AbeBooks also has a European office in Munich, Germany. The Challenge: Outgrowing an existing database AbeBooks needed a new database solution. The business's existing database had performance issues and the cost of ownership was too high. After choosing Amazon Redshift as its cloud data warehouse, AbeBooks needed a new ETL solution to migrate its data to the new data warehouse, connect with third-party data sources and transform its data. Its existing ETL solution was linked to its old, on-premises database, which complicated maintenance, and was essentially a black box to everyone but a few database administrators (DBAs). The Solution: A new ETL solution, downloaded in minutes AbeBooks tested several ETL options against its various use cases and found Matillion to be fast and easy to use. To test Matillion, AbeBooks simply downloaded Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift from the AWS Marketplace and began using it within minutes. The company then used Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift to migrate its existing database to Amazon Redshift—completing the migration ahead of schedule. Finally, AbeBooks used Matillion to build orchestration and transformation jobs, leveraging the power of Amazon Redshift to transform data quickly and at scale. The Benefits: A solution that promotes ETL usage By replacing its existing on-premises database with the Amazon Redshift cloud data warehouse, AbeBooks now has a scalable, powerful data solution that's easier to maintain than its previous solution. With Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift, the company's ETL processes are no longer a mystery. In fact, the number of ETL users within AbeBooks increased by 150 percent with the Matillion solution. Since users are able to look up existing jobs in Matillion to help create new jobs, DBAs and software engineers no longer have to spend time performing routine ETL tasks for users. matillion.com © 2019 Matillion.
