Astera Solution and Results
Being a consulting shop, the firm could have developed its own transformation engine, but quickly decided against this approach since they were not in the data integration business and their resources would be better utilized by working on client projects rather than inventing something that was probably out there in the market already. After investigating possible products, the firm ultimately agreed upon Centerprise Data Integrator.
Using Centerprise , the developers are able to create custom transformations quickly and transparently. With Centerprise’s drag-and-drop visual mapping, it was simple to completely map customer data in minutes. And because the mapping is a visual representation, it was easy to present to clients and thus document the process.
Thanks to the ease of use and extensive logging abilities of Centerprise, this consulting firm estimates that they have been able to speed up the process of mapping customer data by 20 percent. So in addition to completely meeting usability expectations, in only a few projects Centerprise has paid for itself.
