Design

Design the Mapping relationship between the two systems, transform your Data with Lookups, Calculated and Dynamic Columns, Preview the Data and Test the Integration.
System Schema Mapping
Create the Mapping between the two systems with our rich designer with support for Drag and Drop.
Map the Columns from the Source to the Target and choose the Data Type. Data Sync automatically provides Data Type conversion based on the type.
Select the Key Column(s) that define the record identifier and Data Sync automatically creates the ADD/UPDATE/DELETE actions based on the Key selection.
Mapping Between Systems
Transformations of Lookup Fields
Create 'New' Columns
Use the Calculated or Dynamic Columns features to add new Columns to the row based on calculations, transformations, lookups or static values.
Calculated Columns allow you to apply EXCEL like functions in a NO-CODE scenario, where as Dynamic Columns provide all the power of the Microsoft.NET Framework and C# to build columns based on your data.
Compare the data between the two systems
Data Sync's power comes from the powerful Data Comparison Engine battle tested over many years. When you compare your Data the data is loaded from each system and compared on a Field by Field basis. Data Sync then produces a Change Set to make the target match the source.
The Data Sync comparison engine is fast uses little system memory and can load many millions of rows.
Comparing Differences between data
Preview of changes
Preview the results before making changes in data
Before any changes are committed to the Target System you can review all the changes visually and selectively choose which changes to apply.
Synchronise your change set
Once you have your Change Set you can Synchronise the Changes with the Target right within Data Sync with real-time progress feedback and the control to stop the synchronisation.
Any Errors or Messages from the Target are listed in the Log window.
Synchronisation Options
Data Sync also features a Project Automation capability where you can hook into the process at different points and write your own Microsoft.NET C# code to control the flow or implement specific requirements.

Operations

Ouvvi is your Operations Management Centre, from Ouvvi you upload your Integration Projects and then define the Execution Schedule and Monitor the Integration over time.
Ouvvi supports multiple instances where you can create multiple isolated Ouvvi instances on a single server for individual line-of-business separation or to create isolation between DEV/UAT/PROD.
Create Projects and Steps
Ouvvi projects contain multiple steps, each step can be a Data Sync project or one of the many in-built step types.
Each Step is executed in a Sequence with Flow Control to handle Errors.
The Project can be run manually or Triggered via a Schedule or other External Events such as a Data Change in an External System.
Projects run in Parallel and can be defined so that only one instance is ever running to prevent projects running over each other.
Multiple Integration Steps contained in Projects
List of Integration Step Types
Multiple step types for end-to-end integration
Ouvvi has many different step types to allow you full control of your integration and execute different tasks as part of the project execution.
Create your own Step Types in Microsoft Visual Studio with the Ouvvi SDK.
Real-time monitoring of all integration projects
Each Project Execution is linked to a specific instance run and you can visually see the results from the Reporting Dashboard.
The length of the block defines the duration of the project relative to all the other projects in the report.
Any Errors are displayed as Red blocks and you can link directly to the Log for the Error from the Dashboard.
Real-Time Integration Monitoring and Reporting
Historic Integration Monitoring and Reporting
Quickly review how integration projects are progressing
The Reporting Dashboard also shows the performance over-time of your integration projects and steps allowing you to see how everything is running.
Schedule Triggers
Define Date and Time Schedules to reliably execute your integration Projects.
Triggers can also be defined to look at external Data sources and create a Trigger based on time changes for real-time synchronisation scenarios.
Create your own Triggers in Microsoft Visual Studio with the Ouvvi SDK.
List of Integration Triggers Types
Detailed Integration Step Logging
Detailed Logging
Review Logs for each Project Execution, each Step Execution is listed with a Start Time, End Time and Duration. Any Error from the Steps are shown in the Log and this all links back to a specific execution run.
The Logs are stored in the Ouvvi SQL Database which can also be queried for further analysis.
Version Control
Ouvvi maintains a copy of each step configuration, when changes are made a new version is created automatically.
You can review the history, open and restore previous versions.
Version Control your integration steps
Automatically Generated Documentation
Documentation
Ouvvi can be used to Document your Integration processes, the Output Documentation details the Projects, Steps and Data Sync Mappings of the Individual Data Sync projects.
Documenting each project and step in your Ouvvi environment enables comprehensive reference documentation to be output for regulatory or audit compliance.
Ouvvi is deployed as a Web Application in IIS 7.5+ requires a Microsoft SQL Server 2008+ Database and uses a Windows Service to run your projects. Ouvvi Users are authenticated via Windows Integrated Security, read-only users can view and run projects.

  • "Our organization has complex business rules that most companies would charge tens to thousands of dollars to work out for us in the background. We were introduced to Data Sync from Simego and this is one of the BEST tools we could have asked for. Not only is the product fast and easy to use but also our 'non-tech' people can use it. In a short few words, Data Sync has made advancements in our organization that has saved us a great deal of time, effort and money. "
