Instantly Connect to 40+ Data Sources
LIMA's Interface Management solution (IFM) lets you to connect to 40+ data sources instantly to extract the data, all with just few clicks from the UI. The easy-to-use UI lets you to choose the type of interface, enter the paraments and the relevant metadata to extract the data and store security in LIMA's platform. LIMA supports secure extraction for applications that exist within your organization's Firewall or outside in Private/Public Cloud. The data is securely is extracted, encoded and transferred to LIMA enforces industry standard security for data transfers between LIMA and other applications within its eco-system. As a Gold Partner to SAP, Oracle and other industry standard applications such as Salesforce, we offer tight integration and efficient extraction that saves you integration cost, time and development between 50-70%.
LIMA supports data extraction logic in 3 flavors: Real-Time, Delta and Bulk. The solution provides pre-configured, widely used, standard templates that your organization can reuse and configure on-the-fly to fit to your organization's needs. With flexibility and ease-of-use, the solution is designed to drastically reduce the time to develop & deploy and get the benefit instantly! Even more, the solution has inherent Automation framework that will avoid the need to schedule any data flows using an external tool, saving costs, license fees and additional development & deployment efforts.
Not Just Connect but Configure to Extract
Most of the industry leading software tools that provide solutions to connect to multiple sources, just provide the platform to just connect and configure to extract flat files from some source folder in the source server. Some, provide basic configuration settings to configure basic data from source systems. Even some, provide solutions to read/write very 'specific' data sets based on standard templates. LIMA's IFM solution not only does all of that but much more. It provides comprehensive framework right from LIMA's UI to write custom logic, however complex that can be, that needs to be triggered on the target application at the time of data extraction. This enables total configuration and control on LIMA's end irrespective of the target system (such as SAP, Oracle) and saves add-on costs and avoids deployment impacts by avoiding dependencies on other teams.
Optimized Extraction Toolkit
Once the configuration is done and the extraction logic is defined, LIMA provides toolkits to fast-extract the data from source systems or fast-inject data into target systems. In many situations this can be same corporate ERP or Datawarehousing or any other system such as SAP, Oracle, Salesforce etc. This toolkit is highly useful in situations where the extraction logic is highly complex or coordinating with partner application teams is always a time consuming with cost implications or you do not want to really write complex logic in your partner application. The toolkit guarantees time reductions between 50-70% when compared with 'normal' implementation logic adopted in many implementations.
Instant View, Profile, Clean & Store
Once the data is extracted, the data can contain many exceptions, bad records, invalid/ incomplete data. With LIMA, you can view all of the extracted data instantly, even if the number of records run into millions of records, profile the data and define data acceptance and validation rules on-the fly. These rules combined with (pre-defined Business Validation rules defined at Schema level during Data Model definition) will be instantly enforced on the incoming data and any exceptions are promptly filtered and relevant business users are instantly notified. Besides, LIMA's solution provides a easy-to-navigate platform to view the data in columnar format and 'map' the incoming data columns to the target data store columns- all through the UI, without any specific need for back end coding.
Apply simple to Complex Validation
The validation rules that can be applied on the data to validate can range from simple not null, range, type check validations to more complex validations based on the values or fields in other columns within the same record in the same table or other referential records or associated columns in other tables. All these complex rules logic can easily be configured via the UI avoiding the need for complex coding and development, thus saving you cost, effort and significantly reducing time-to-market.
Exceptions on the incoming data are promptly weeded out avoiding Garbage IN - Garbage OUT scenario. LIMA's IFM solution enforces highest level of quality standards both by providing configuration options to define them and enforcing them strictly irrespective the source of data entry (backend jobs, user uploads, user direct edits in the UI). Exceptions are instantly captured and stored separately, ensuring that every record that enters the solution is either operational or is found in the corresponding 'exception table'. Thus, the solution avoids any 'data loss' scenario, significantly boosting the trust that users bestow upon the solution.
Define & Manage Data Store Schema
LIMA provides comprehensive framework to define, manage and centralize the data model for your specific implementation. The solution provides easy-to-configure UIs to define various tables, fields, field constraints (type, acceptable values, min, max, range etc.), foreign key constraints, type of tables (master, transaction, hierarchy etc.) and the tables end-use (visualization, predictive analytics, master data management etc.). The defined metadata is centrally managed ensuring utmost transparency for the power users and administrators avoiding confusion. Comprehensive metadata info that includes information on which type of end-use a particular table/field is being utilized is centrally stored and accessible, eliminating costly 'mistakes' resulting from impromptu data model changes without understanding broader implications. The solution also provides schema manager, an easy-to-use GUI that clearly shows all the elements and associated interrelationships.
Configure Alerts & Notifications
The solution offers easy-to-configure alerts & notification mechanisms to quickly inform relevant users on the ongoing exceptions and discrepancies, as the solution is used by various business users. The solution supports standard email, phone call and sms-based alerts. The alerts can also be configured to include summarized views, details or any where in between so that users are notified on the overall data quality at a granularity that suits them best instead of inundating them with loads of information.
Enable Single-Store Multi-Use
The data once stored in LIMA's persistent data store, is available across the platform for all the solution instantly, avoiding the cost and time overhead associated with developing data flows across the solutions. Users have instant access to data, enabling them to be better informed and consequently make informed decisions.
Just as incoming data services are easily configured using LIMA's IFM solution, data put-back in target systems are easily configurable using LIMA's IFM solution. Users can create a target connection which can be managed centrally in target hub. The identified data sets can be uploaded into target systems (such as SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, Flatfiles etc.) using optimized toolkit, that optimizes data put-back performance by about 40-60% when compared with most common implementations.
Enable API integration services
LIMA offers rich set of easy-to-configure APIs that applications in the eco-system can leverage to 'ping' or 'enquire' about specific data points/ data sets within LIMA's solution in real-time or delta or batch mode to extract relevant for further process using latest on-line protocols.
