Yellowfin’s platform has an integrated data extraction and transformation module to enable users to manipulate data into a format better suited to reporting and analytics. With this module, it is possible to extract data, transform it and then store the transformed data into a target database.
The Data Transformation module has a simple drag-and-drop builder to help you create Transformation Flows. These flows consist of "steps", each performing a different function. Following are the three main types of steps:
These steps can be joined up to configure complex flows which can then be run immediately, or scheduled to run at specific time intervals.
