You also can generate reports that provide details about mapping specifications that you create as you create the application. InfoSphere FastTrack accelerates the design time to create source-to-target mappings and to automatically generate jobs.

The Home and Mapping Specifications views provide profile and status information about specifications that are contained within projects, and access to tasks such as importing specifications, generating jobs, or publishing to a metadata repository. Set up the tutorial environment You must prepare your system to run the tutorial. You then integrate the customer data from the BANK 3 subsidiary fasttrck the database containing the standardized fastyrack information. You will access this database in Module 1, in Lesson 1.

Time required In the first module, you set up your environment, and the fasttrcak required depends on your current environment. Where InfoSphere FastTrack fits in the suite architecture You can use InfoSphere FastTrack to track and automate efforts that span multiple data integration tasks from analysis to code generation, shortening the time from business requirements to solution implementation.

InfoSphere FastTrack

HTML Creating reports Creating reports These topics describe how to create reports that present data at the mapping specification level. By using InfoSphere FastTrackthe IT team specified data relationships and transformations that the business analysts used to create specifications, which consist of source-to-target mappings.

Relationships with InfoSphere Business Glossary terms Helps you to create new business terms and document their relationship to corresponding physical columns as a part of the mapping process. The following steps illustrate the sequence of actions: HTML Troubleshooting Troubleshooting These topics describe log files, administrative tools, and how to troubleshoot issues such as infoslhere with authentication and configuration.


You will experience how InfoSphere FastTrack increases the ease and efficiency by which you create mapping specifications. The relationships are then published to the InfoSphere Information Server metadata services common repository so that they can be shared across development teams.

With the job generation wizard, you can generate multiple specifications into a single job. The following components fwsttrack applications must be installed on your system.

Setting or checking status You can indicate the status of mapping specifications and specific source-to-target mappings by using the mapping editor.

Tutorial: IBM InfoSphere FastTrack Facilitated mapping creation

You can specify parameters within report templates so that you can obtain specific mapping specification information tailored to your requirements. HTML Reference Message reference These ifosphere describe warning and validation messages, explain why they occur, and recommend actions to take. You can compose jobs that are parallel or sequential.

HTML Administering Getting started with the consoles These topics introduce the console and the Web console, and they explain how to use each to complete administrative tasks. BANK 3 Holds only savings accounts.

With the mapping editor, you create mappings by selecting source columns and target columns from data source tables. Now you must integrate the customer data from Bank 3. Automated discovery of relationships Helps you to create customized discovery algorithms to find exact, partial, and lexical matches on corresponding column names across source to target structures.

InfoSphere FastTrack InfoSphere Fastrtack generates messages relating to errors that occur during importing, validation, mapping, and job generation.

The need for speed – accelerating data integration projects This white paper explains how InfoSphere FastTrack can help enterprises accelerate the deployment of data integration projects by simplifying and improving the communication process between the business analyst and the developer. Learning objectives By completing the modules, you will learn about these functions: You can also view detailed properties information including an expandable view of the artifacts in the IBM InfoSphere Information Server metadata services repository.

First Midwest subsidiaries and the plan for how the data fazttrack. You can also delete metadata from the indosphere repository.

Scenario for mapping data

The application moves customer information from the bank subsidiaries into a standardized fasttraci model. Through the modules, you create specifications and build an application to identify gold and platinum customers for marketing and customer service.


Standardize information, use business terms, and create data extractions for customer marketing and service In this module, you associate customer data with business terms and create data extractions for marketing and customer service.

Getting started with the consoles These topics introduce the console and the Web console, and they explain how to use each to complete administrative tasks.

First Midwest created a standard customer database that its subsidiaries use to represent customer data. Importing mapping specifications These topics describe how to import mapping specifications from other application sources, modify the mapping specifications in InfoSphere FastTrackand then export the mapping specifications so that you can share your specifications with other team members.

You can obtain additional data from columns for your mapping specification by using lookup tables. You use a infospherd user interface to complete business requirements, track work, and then translate the specifications directly into integration code for use by the InfoSphere Information Infospherw data integration engine. First Midwest has these subsidiaries: Creating mapping specifications You create mapping specifications that consists of source-to-target mappings.

The business analysts can also use InfoSphere FastTrack to discover and optimize mapping ihfosphere using existing data profiling results from the metadata repository.

The standardized information is used to build information about platinum customers for the customer service department and information about gold customers for marketing. Identify gold customers as level B and platinum customers as level A. First Midwest wants to ensure that gold customers are offered new investment opportunities and that platinum customers are given premium customer service when they call in with issues.

Job generation automatically derives an extract, transform, and load flow from business requirements. First Midwest defines two levels of high-value customers.
