The heart of our DMS integration service

Transformation Manager is the data movement software deployed within our DataHub service. It has been proven in complex data movement projects across the world. Flexible and extensible, Transformation Manager is used by our consultants to connect, transform and integrate data from any dealer management system (DMS) to any target system.

How Transformation Manager works

An efficient approach.

Transformation Manager is a metadata-driven code generator. It combines a graphical user interface with a statement-driven mapping language. This combination produces lightweight code that’s robust enough for any data integration challenge.

A rich Java environment.

Transformation Manager derives metadata from the elements, attributes and relationships in the source and target models. The software then uses rules specified by our Simple Mapping Language to generate code written in Java. This code can then be easily implemented in any data movement situation.

Flexible options.

Deployed for you as part of our DataHub service, implemented by our consultants for your one-off migration, or available to your in-house developers to build their own migrations… Transformation Manager works any way you need it to. Off-the-shelf or as part of a service, it’s your choice.

Software architecture

Transformation Manager is designed as an open system. All models and transform logic are stored in a text-based metadata repository, which can be easily shared by multiple developers.

Design tool.

The Designer is a tool that develops, debugs and maintains transformation projects. The tool has a clear, streamlined interface with a host of useful features.

Test tool.

The Migrator is a user-friendly interface for setting up and running projects. It’s perfect for using sample data to view and check the results of a migration.
