ELT...Interesting turn on ETL. Sure have been using SQL since the late '80s. And, if I have to, I'll do a home-grown application(s) to do what I need. But I have to think about others here, such as managers and clerk/application administrators. The former thinks development is to be avoided (they shudder when I talk of coding/building something) and pre-built software packages from someone they can trust, a vendor, are better than using/relying on employees. Second, I may not always be around and the skill of the clerk/application administrators and any systems analysts they might hire will have little if any skill, due to the low wage they'll pay, in supporting home-grown applications.
