Apache NiFi can be used to connect to (almost) any system, process data and put it into (almost) any (other) system.

Enjoy and don’t forget to ask questions or give me feedback!

This is the simple database schema I used for the MySQL example table:
CREATE DATABASE company; CREATE TABLE people(id int, name varchar(20)); INSERT INTO people (id, name) VALUES (1,'stefan');
