Gravity Data


AOL Data Source

AOL originally stood for America Online and is an online service provider and web portal. It is now
owned by Yahoo and was initially hailed as one of the early leaders in the provision of the internet in
the 1990s. AOL is now a source for multimedia content such as news and features but is arguably
best known for its email services.

AOL Mail is a free, web-based email service, providing a personalised email service that is available
in 54 different languages. It allows you to customise your emailing experience and enables you to
manage an AOL calendar, create and manage folders, and organise your mail.

The data that is generated with AOL can be integrated into your storage process or data warehouse
through Gravity Data’s Extract, Load, Transform or Extract, Transform, Load tool. This way the data
can be migrated between the two entities quickly and at scale.


Gravity Data’s ELT or ETL tool can be used to move your data quickly, easily and securely from AOL to
your data storage facility. This data can then be used for analytics and a better understanding of
your business to help you to make the best decisions for you.
