ERP BODS is an ETL tool currently acquired by ERP used for integration with all types of disparate systems, extracting data from them, transforming them into meaningful information and loading them into all types of systems.

It is tightly integrated with ERP systems and hence really a good tool to migrate data from legacy systems to ERP systems with ease and less development efforts with effective debugging and monitoring capabilities.
