Well, the in-house-developed rule-based "no code" system I used at one employer (about ten years ago) was developed in VB.net, sooo... Sigh | :sigh:

These things -- including off-the-shelf ETL systems, such as SSIS -- are not intended for use by large enterprises with complex needs and large numbers of highly-skilled developers.
They always fall down when the needs are beyond the current capabilities of the system and "someone" has to develop a new module/rule/functoid.
The target market is small shops with simpler needs and no ability to hire highly-skilled developers.
A business with needs beyond that will always do better by hiring/contracting developers to implement a custom application to do the work.


I'm sure things go like this...

Client: We can do A, B, and C just fine, but we need something which will help us with X, Y, and Z.
Consultant: Absolutely, we can do that.
Six months later...
Consultant: Here you go.
Client: But that does only A, B, and C, which we can do ourselves already. It does nothing for X, Y, and Z, which is what we hired you to do.
Consultant: Well, we had to address the low-hanging fruit first.
