Liaison Contivo™

The Contivo VMS ™ solution is an innovative semantic integration technology, patented and proven daily by our customers, which reduces the risk, time, cost and integration projects related efforts through the use of a central repository for all enterprise semantic metadata.

Transforming Enterprise Data Transformation

Contivo Analyst™ is an enterprise class data transformation and reconciliation tool that empowers business analysts, data architects, and integration engineers with the ability to easily create and deploy solutions for their data integration needs. The time and complexity associated with most data integration projects can be drastically reduced through the use of Contivo Analyst.

Contivo Analyst™ can help you:

Reduce maintenance costs - helps migrate maps from one version of a standard to another, allowing reuse and lowered costs.

Shorten project cycles: build and test maps, and get them in production quickly.

Write once, run many: flexibility in where you deploy the transform.

Leverage Business Analysts to build specifications and often complete maps.

Handle complex mapping challenges.

Contivo Analyst includes sophisticated code generation capabilities that automate the generation of industry standard Java or XSLT code from logical maps as well as specific code generators for IBM Datapower and Software AG webMethods. The generated transformation code can be deployed in most Java or XSLT enabled integration runtime environments, including Tibco BW, SAP PI, Oracle, IBM WebSphere and within virtually any J2EE or J2SE environment. A robust and well-documented Java API provides a variety of configurable runtime capabilities, including hot deployment, automated log file management, event callback & notification, hierarchical property management, and more.

Legacy and flat-file data is supported via the Legacy Integrator module within Contivo Analyst. This includes support for importing Cobol copybook, spreadsheet, and EDI metadata as an interface, which can then be used as a source or target within a map. This enables true ``any to any`` mapping and transformation, since any source or target interface can represent virtually any variant of XML or non-XML data, which is essential in today's modern enterprise.

Contivo Map Intuition

Today’s complex business interactions are forcing companies to look for ways to take advantage of new, more effective integration solutions without costly rework. Often, translation map development can be a gating factor in integration projects, slowing progress and increasing expense. Contivo Map Intuition accelerates and simplifies the data conversion process for analysts and developers, eliminating the need for laborious and complex hand-coding and reducing the time to create new maps.


With mapping costs accounting for 40% or more of B2B integration projects, companies are often locked into aging and proprietary EDI translators, B2B platforms and EAI software due to the high cost of re-mapping and migration.


Reduce Costs and Accelerate Projects with Map Intuition


Map Intuition combines an inference engine with a user interface that rapidly guides users through the process of finding optimal mapping scenarios. Unlike more traditional approaches to auto-mapping that require a significant amount of preparatory work, Map Intuition applies artificial intelligence to the mapping process to rapidly generate more accurate maps.


Here’s how it works: Map Intuition’s inference engine examines sample source and target data and then presents the user with multiple recommendations for maps ranked by confidence level. Users can then experiment with the suggestions to identify the correct mappings. Learning as it goes, Map Intuition increasingly produces higher confidence recommendations the more it is used.

Key Benefits:

Time spent creating new maps is greatly reduced, meaning fewer resources are required for this workstream.

Designers and data integration specialists can quickly and easily share and confirm the accuracy of their mappings with other departments and customers.

Map porting projects from legacy middleware or hand-coded XSLT are simpler and completed more quickly.

More information helps make data mapping details clear.
