EIM European Institute for the Media ) Solution 3.5 to help enterprises integrate data faster and more effectively. Contivo's EIM Solution 3.5 is comprised of the Contivo Analyst(TM) and the Contivo EIM Server(TM), which work together to automate data transformation for application integration across multiple platforms Refers to two or more operating environments, which typically include the CPU family and operating system. For example, if versions of a program run on Windows and the Macintosh, the software is said to support multiple platforms. . The new capabilities and platform support of EIM Solution 3.5 enable data integration across the enterprise, extending to legacy systems and Web services (1) Loosely, any online service delivered over the Web. Such usage appears in articles from non-technical sources, but not in IT-oriented publications, because definition #2 below describes the correct use of the term. .
Contivo's EIM Solution 3.5 enables companies to realize the benefits of Web services, through simplifying the mapping of complex transactions by modeling and automatically generating transformations between native applications and SOAP (Services Oriented Access Protocol), or other Web services languages, schemas and protocols. Most data integration projects are still completed manually and are not reusable in creation or maintenance. Contivo dramatically improves the implementation and maintenance of enterprise-wide integration projects by automating data transformations between applications through the use of models. The technology analyzes and models the relationships between applications and automatically configures integration run-time code.
"Connecting new trading partners and buyers quickly is imperative to any successful exchange. Using Contivo's modeling technology we are able to exponentially reduce the mapping time for our integration project," said Sebastian Gass, director of solutions architecture at Trade-Ranger, a Web-based exchange for the energy and petrochemical companies. "We have to be ready to handle whatever type of enterprise software our partners use, and Contivo makes this possible. The model-based approach accelerates our customers' integration into the hub, allowing them to more quickly realize the benefits of the exchange."
In addition to providing interface modeling, automated mapping, and code generation, the Contivo EIM Solution 3.5 provides the ability to simulate transformations, giving customers full confidence that the maps produced will work inside the runtime environment A configuration of hardware and software. It includes the CPU type, operating system and any runtime engines or system software required by a particular category of applications. See runtime engine. as intended. Contivo EIM Solution 3.5 also offers expanded platform support, including native support for webMethods Enterprise, and Java transformations within BEA BEA - Basic programming Environment for interactive-graphical Applications, from Siemens-Nixdorf.

"Companies spend countless hours and dollars on integrating internal departments and external partners, but with each new relationship, the goal of a streamlined business process moves farther away as the connections grow more knotted and complex," said Paul Koenig, vice president of business strategy at Contivo. "By automating the transformation of data between applications, Contivo's EIM approach helps companies take control of their integration projects and provides the capacity to grow their business incorporating their legacy systems and branching out into new channels such as Web services."
Contivo EIM Solution 3.5 features include:
The new features of Contivo's EIM Solution 3.5 include support for Web services by allowing customers to import WSDL (Web Services Description Language) An XML-based language for defining Web services. Developed by Microsoft and IBM, WSDL describes the protocols and formats used by the service. schema payloads, as well as expanded capabilities to integrate data by including support for legacy systems. Additional new and improved features include:
-- New Map Simulation: Provides the ability to simulate transformations, as well as trace rules and variables for "debugging." This function ensures that maps are accurate and will work inside the runtime environment as expected prior to deployment. -- Java Support for BEA WebLogic: Supports the generation of Java transformation components, in addition to the already available XSLT transformations, for BEA WebLogic. -- XML Schema Support: Provides enhanced support of XML standards with multiple namespace support for XML Schemas. -- webMethods Enterprise Support: Supports the generation of Java transformation clients with direct Broker Repository integration, allowing customers to quickly model and generate message transformations within webMethods Enterprise. -- XSLT Generator: Redesigned XSLT Generator provides improved XSLT performance and smaller XSLT output files.

Contivo provides product solutions that enable enterprises to dramatically reduce the time, effort, and dollars spent to design and maintain software integration efforts. The Contivo approach provides integration architects with a centrally-managed repository that introduces reuse and collaboration to a previously one-off and manual task. Contivo introduced the concept of Enterprise Integration Modeling (EIM), a framework on which companies can create, leverage, and manage their knowledgebase of data integration efforts.
