ETL from Sharepoint db to data warehouse

Hi,

How can I extract data from sharepoint databases and load it into SQL server's data warehouse from where this data can be reported against ?

I don't have experience with Sharepoint databases but my understanding is that the files are stored in Sharepoint db as BLOBs. And it's not even easy to find out which list/table data is stored. Not sure whether data is stored using relational db model or unstructured. I'm trying to see how others overcome the data extraction difficulty (if any) from sharepoint db to reporting environment.

Please advise!

it is not recommended to directly access the SQL DB to get to the data
yet you can use the web services interface to do your data access.

one deployment against DB2 for some .NET reporting.

yes it works but as you can tell is a bit expensive

I have done it both ways and the product is a bit easier for some developers

You can download the eval copy for a month .

Best of luck.
