« update | Main | Data Model Patterns, A Metadata Map »

November 13, 2006


Hi Y'all,

Sorry its been such a long time since posting; here's the catch-up.

Things are still moving along on the Metadata front; we now have SuperGlue from Informatica; and in between deliverables on other projects I try to get it running.

Its been installed twice; the first time I had it to the point where I had a couple Xconnects defined and running, although not on a scheduled basis. The Xconnects are the canned set of mapping that ship with SuperGlue and import the data from various sources; the most important of which is the Informatica Repository itself.

Unfortunately, not long after, we lost a disk in the array where our databases were kept; and the DBA's decided not to recover the SuperGlue repository.

So I started from scratch.

I am now to the point where its time to start defining the sources and then configure the Xconnects again; but other projects are eating up my time again.

On the Ab Initio front; one of my co-workers went to a seminar recently on Ab Initio; and also spoke to a manager in another part of our company who is receptive to the idea of sharing his instance with us.

We will see which avenue bears the most fruit.
