CIMdata Publishes “Application Migration & Application Integration”
May 09, 2012, 05:40:49 AM
“New Strategies for PLM Deployments”

CIMdata, a global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) management consulting and research firm announces a new paper about the use of application data migration and integration in PLM environments.

During PLM implementations, all companies find themselves in the position of replacing old solutions with new, more capable solutions. Often, this is driven by a desire to substantially improve business performance throughout the enterprise.

Application migration and application integration are a fact of life for all companies as they move from older to newer applications and as they share data with suppliers and customers who often use different applications. The challenges of migrating data are myriad—data has to be reformatted so that receiving applications can use it, it has to conform to security rules that may be established in multiple applications, data mapping may be required so that it can be placed properly into a new application, and the data has to be cleaned so that it retains its value and integrity as it is moved. This is a complex task that is not generally supported in all applications that use and modify data. The eQube-MI solution from eQ Technologic provides a framework for supporting the complexity of data migrations among a multitude of applications. This paper describes the solution’s capabilities and how industrial companies have been using eQube-MI to facilitate their data migration and application integration needs.

This paper provides a business perspective on the importance of data migration and application integration within product development: the pressures that motivate the use of data migration and application integration; their value and future; and how one company, eQ Technologic, is developing and delivering advanced, data migration solutions for the PLM market...
