Designer Variety and Flexibility of components

Variety of flexible components

Choose from a variety of highly configurable components to build your transformations.

Designer Manage Assets

Manage assets

Easily manage your assests like input data, shared metadata, connections, scripts, Java sources in CloverETL projects either in your local workspace or remotely on the CloverETL Server.

Designer Metadata

Instantly edit, generate, and preview metadata

Metadata in CloverETL describes how data looks. You define fields and properties such as type, precision, format, etc. Metadata also helps CloverETL to parse data from text files, Excel spreadsheets and other sources.

Shared metadata is a great tool to keep large projects clean and organized.

Designer Debugging

Built-in debugging

You can define debugging edges during development and then watch and filter real data coming through the edges almost in real time.

Designer Visual Mapping

Visual data mapping

For simple mappings use the drag & drop transform dialog, which let's you even define simple expressions without any coding.

Designer Drag'n'Drop

Drag&drop interface

Use full drag&drop shortcuts in the interface help you accelerate the transformation development.

Designer CTL business logic language

Business logic language

The CloverETL Transformation Language (CTL) is a simple, data-oriented programming language that you can use to define business logic for your data transformations. It offers direct access to data and functions.

Syntax highlighting, code assist and automatic code generation make it very easy to start with.

Designer Java

Built-in Java support

The Designer comes with native Java support. So whenever you need to inject a complex piece of code into the transformation, simply create a few Java classes and use the right interface for a particular component.

Designer on a Desktop

Designer with Server

The Designer can be used as a standalone data integration tool for manually driven processes and small amounts of data. Combined with the Server, the Designer brings visual design and a debugging and management tool to enterprise scale projects.
Manage local projects Manage local and Server remote projects (sandboxes)
Create and edit transformation graphs Create and edit local and remote transformations
Run and debug local transformations Run and debug local and Server remote transformations
Deploy local projects to the Server
Run distributed Cluster transformations
Create, edit and run Server jobflows

Do you use programmers or database administrators to prepare your data? Most organizations still do and, as a result, waste huge amounts of time, effort and money. Not only are these methods prone to error, but they are also difficult to maintain and adjust to meet your changing data formats and needs.

CloverETL Designer is a superb desktop tool for managing all your ad-hoc data transformations. It's the easiest and most flexible ETL software tool available today. And when you need even more power, you can smoothly upgrade to our Server or Cluster editions.
