Data Transformation

Siebel Financial Services eAI provides a declarative data mapper (Siebel Data Mapper) to transform the data expected by Siebel applications (internal integration object) to the data received from the external system (external integration object) and the other way around. A run-time engine, the Industry XML Data Transformation Engine, implements complex domain and structure mapping. XML documents can be mapped so that one document can be transformed into another XML document with programming. For example, data in one system's LastName field can be used in another system's field named Surname. Siebel Financial Services eAI also supports transformation of heterogeneous messages.

NOTE:  This type of exchange can take place within middleware, or between internal and external applications.
