Xillio Introduces the New Version of the Content ETL Platform

Apr 14, 2016

Xillio, expert in the analysis, transformation and migration of unstructured data, announced version 3.0 of its Content ETL Platform. The new version of the platform is based on a completely new architecture including a new scripting language, which aims to make the platform much more stable and scalable. Also introduced in this version are the Universal Data Model and a new database (MongoDB). The platform is prepared to deal with the growing amount of content, and allows organizations to make quick changes in their information landscape.

In the new version, the Unified Data Model (UDM) is ingrained in the Xill IDE scripting language. The UDM is a kind of Esperanto for data models-a universal language which crosses systems-and consists of an API built upon MongoDB along with the corresponding data model. The reusable data model makes it possible to connect different content sources (ECM, DM, etc.) with each other in a standardized manner, without having to adapt the underlying data models of each individual system. The UDM is scalable, and supports millions of documents.

Besides the UDM, the new platform also offers a new Server Module, intended for those organizations that want to run Xill's comprehensive scripts using their own servers. Scripts developed in the Xill IDE development platform are uploaded to the server, and can then be scheduled and managed separately from the Xill Platform. The Server Module also has a fully functional scheduling capability including dependencies, such as the ability to conditionally run processes based on the success or completion of prior runs.
