eQube-TM delivers an efficient alternative to creating and managing data mappings across the enterprise. Its knowledgebase inherits data model from source systems and augments it with a collection of:
- Annotations: during requirements phase, SME's use annotations to add rules and guidelines at attribute, object and map level that assist solution architects while designing the solution.
- Tags: source system tags are added automatically by TM as the maps are being built, viz. unique constraints, foreign keys, list-of-values, data types etc.
- Enablers: solution architects add enablers to drive data flow and process decisions to define generic solutions.
eQube-TM knowledgebase allows SMEs to capture and build semantic maps and business rules between disparate systems. These maps are further used in building migration and integration solutions using eQube-MI. The knowledgebase allows SMEs to define key enablers that drive the eQube-MI based solutions and shield the migration/integration solution from the ripple effects of frequent data model changes. Such approach provides the solution architects to build a robust, loosely-coupled and generic framework.
