Is it really so hard that it's only now possible?
Initially, UniLibre was asked to advise customers who have a desire to stay with their U2 system but also have a desire to explore business intelligence, analytics and data mining to drive business performance. We find that our advice is always well received by U2 customers but they have subsequently found it very difficult to engage U2 savvy technology partners who are affordable and capable in best practice data warehousing methodologies.

Consequently, many U2 sites have invested heavily in capturing query outputs or writing BASIC code to create text files, both of which are then imported into a relational database (usually MS SQL Server). These clients have become heavily reliant on non-standard methods for accessing their data. UniLibre still recommend phasing out such practices, in favour of more robust and scaleable methods. What is a robust and scaleable methodology? A well designed and controlled ETL !
