ETL (Extract Transform Load) tools are used to extract data from databases, files, applications and to tranfrom them and to load them into databases, files, applications.

In your case, you can use ETL to load from your 2 databases and to put them into your postgresql (if your postrgres is used for reporting).

As you may already know, if you do complex sql queries from several databases during report execution, you'll get performance degradation. it's better to transform data so a simple select is used in your reports.
