Meta Integration® Model Bridge (MIMB)
"Metadata Integration" Solution

README for Release Notes, Installation & Setup

Table of Contents

1. Overview

The Meta Integration® Model Bridge (MIMB) software provides solutions for:
  • Metadata Harvesting required for Metadata Management (MM) applications, including metadata harvesting from live databases (or big data), Data Integration (DI, ETL and ELT) , and Business Intelligence (BI) software.
  • Metadata Integration required for tool integration in the software development life cycle, including all necessary forward and reverse engineering steps to update each other tools: for example between Data Modeling (DM), Data Integration (DI), and Business Intelligence (BI) design tools.
  • Metadata Conversion required for legacy migration from an older design tool to a new one.

Disclaimer on Beta Bridges::
As part of its continuous research and development, MITI may develop prototypes of new bridges. Such bridges may be provided as beta bridges [i.e. marked as "(beta)" or "beta bridge"] to the MIMB OEM Software for the sole purpose of proof of concepts and customer feedback. Such beta bridges are not officially supported, and MITI reserves the rights to discontinue such beta bridges.
