For effective data transformation, few qualities are as important in a script builder as efficiency. The rate at which you can process, convert, and organize data are essential to the consistent accessibility of that data, and the more data you can get online, the better. However, the question remains concerning your own script-building efficiency--are you achieving the absolute fastest rate that technology allows?

If you have even the slightest doubts about the speed of your current script builder, it might be time to take a look at what's out there. If you have been relying on a traditional query-builder that requires you to build scripts line by line, your need to expand your horizons could be even more urgent. Today, building scripts page by page is the standard, in a process that can take less than two hours, compared to the full day's work you might be used to.

Getting Current with Your Rates of Data Transformation

If you're spending hours and hours building scripts, cutting and pasting queries, editing syntax and debugging scripts, your data transformation process could be virtually begging for an upgrade. Today, template-based builders are reshaping the speed by which programmers can transform data into completed scripts. For a company that needs to transform ever-increasing amounts of data, these faster solutions could be essential for accommodating those needs.

As your company grows, the capabilities of your database must keep pace. If your feel that your current SQL builder may not be giving you the rate of performance you need to match company growth, it might be time to move in a new direction. At the least, it might be helpful to take a look at some of the advanced solutions that are available, if only to be more aware of the possibilities these solutions offer.
