Overview 
METASUITE is a powerful solution that enables organizations to gain access to the information that is 
hidden in the large amounts of operational data that reside in their business applications. 
A key element in today’s decision making, information about a business’ customers, suppliers and 
competitors needs to be available to the right people in the right format at the right moment. Current 
solutions that access, move, integrate and forward the huge volumes of transaction data that decision 
support requires, are often limited in their capabilities. Many business users are fi nding these solutions 
to be inadequate either in content, accessibility, usability, and performance or in their ability to bring 
together data from many disparate systems. 
Based on standard technologies, METASUITE was specifi cally designed to perform even the largest and 
most complex data retrieval, data conversion, and data integration jobs. 
Metasuite product folder 3 
METASUITE off ers:

• Native database support. 
• Support to move data from any source to any target. 
• Support to move data from simple to highly complex data structures. 
• Multi-Platform support. 
• Superior processing performance. 
• Simplifi ed maintenance, as routine changes require only minor adjustments. 
• A short learning curve. 
• Scalability. 
• Reporting and audit facilities. 
Key benefi ts 
• Integration of information from anywhere in the enterprise. 
• A uniform format of information, i.e. a single version of the truth. 
• Timely access to vital information. 
• Distribution of knowledge throughout the enterprise. 
• Flexibility to support the changing need of information. 
• Easy access to information about the data stored in a warehouse, both for end-users 
and database professionals.
Data extraction and transformation done better 
When organizations need to access, move, integrate and forward very large volumes of data, they are 
looking for solutions to perform these tasks in a fast, easy and reliable way. Ideally, they would like to 
have just one single solution to cover: 
Metasuite product folder 4 
• Data Conversions. 
• Data Migrations. 
• Creating and maintaining Data Warehouses / Data Marts. 
• Creating and maintaining Operational Data Stores. 
METASUITE is that single solution, as it contains the functionality to: 
• Migrate very large volumes of data from operational systems to any target platform or 
to a data warehouse, data mart or ODS. 
• Convert and transform the data prior to storage in a database. 
• Build, run and maintain the routines to process these large data volumes 
With METASUITE any data integration routine can be rapidly deployed to supply a quick response 
to ever changing information needs. Next to off ering a low cost of ownership, METASUITE also frees 
overburdened mainframes from analysis tasks, and helps to promote the use of third party analysis and 
reporting tools. 
Single-pass architecture for superior processing per-formance 
METASUITE provides a unique, single-pass processing architecture for maximum effi ciency and superior 
performance of data extraction and data migration, rather than having to process source data multiple 
times for various selection criteria. This single-pass architecture allows a single program to: 
• Process multiple sources within the same single process. 
• Process multiple records within a source. 
• Create multiple targets, leading to: 
• Reduction of the time required for extraction, so that the batch window can be 
shrunk even when data volumes increase. 
• Reduction of CPU usage leading to a reduction of operating costs. 
• Simplifi cation of the scheduling process, because less programs need to be 
scheduled and managed.
Main architecture 
METASUITE has been designed to take full advantage of the potential of operating systems and 
databases to provide users with a maximum return on their investment and to minimize their Total Cost 
of Ownership (TCO). 
Metasuite product folder 5 
METASUITE’s main architecture consists of: 
MetaStore Manager (to maintain data descriptions) 
MetaStore Manager guides you through the process of building a data descriptions dictionary, 
which can be obtained in four ways: 
• By creating data defi nitions manually for diff erent source types. Dictionary Files, 
Records and Fields can be defi ned for standard Files, Adabas File Groups, Datacom File 
Groups, IMS PCB, SQL Table Groups, IDMS Sub Schemas, Supra Databases, XML fi les 
etc… 
• By collecting or capturing fi les directly from the database via an ODBC connection or 
from a specifi c fi le describing the record structures in one of the supported languages or 
formats. This can be done from Cobol Copy Books, PL/I Include Books, IDMS punches, 
SAP DMI, DB2 DDL, etc. 
• During the collection process, MetaStore also generates the required load and unload 
scripts for various RDBMS types. 
• By exporting and importing data defi nitions from other METASUITE repositories. 
• By investigating data (CSV fi les, XML fi les) using the parsing tool. 
MetaMap (to defi ne the datafl ow) 
The transformation of operational data into a format that fi ts the target environment is achieved via the 
MetaMap application of METASUITE. MetaMap enables users to quickly and easily create data integration 
mappings. Those mappings can be simple or highly complex. A Mapping Wizard and a Structured 
Editor guides users through the creation of the mapping rules, which defi ne the cleaning, fi ltering, 
transformation, and consolidation processes. Generating the MetaMap model will lead to a COBOL 
source code and a run script, which is operating system and COBOL vendor specifi c. The modifi cation 
of the business map and technical rules, and the subsequent code generation is performed in the 
background. The complete run-time process can be customized to ensure performance optimization and 
to deal with specifi c conditions not taken care of in the rules. All process steps can be fully automated 
to reduce the development time and increase ease of use. 
MetaTrace (to keep track of data use) 
METASUITE’s web-based metadata browser MetaTrace will detect any application that is aff ected by a 
particular change, and it monitors data usage and changes. MetaTrace also provides the features for 
interrogating the used metadata into the diff erent MetaMap applications, transformation rules and 
owners.
The metadata approach 
One of the main challenges in transforming and converting data is managing changes in the operational 
data environment. This is why METASUITE fi rst defi nes and stores metadata for the data sources and 
targets. 
METASUITE can also handle multiple versions of the same data defi nition. Changes in the metadata 
can be captured in the metadata repository, which can contain the defi nitions of all technical, editing 
and validation information related to the changes. This metadata is then used to generate the data 
transformation routines. METASUITE is the only data integration solution that allows you to perform 
these tasks over and over again. As a result, METASUITE’s metadata always refl ects the actual data in 
the operational environment. 
Special features 
Filtering and transforming 
METASUITE allows you to only select the data you need. It provides powerful options for fi ltering data, 
in order to minimize the data volume to be transferred to the target relational database. For instance 
legacy data types are transformed to standard RDBMS formats. 
Hiding legacy system complexity 
METASUITE collects, consolidates and centralizes data, through its intuitive graphical user interface, 
from a wide variety of systems using native COBOL generation. It generates COBOL applications and 
the corresponding custom run scripts for all data systems. Using METASUITE requires no knowledge 
of the legacy system whatsoever. The METASUITE graphical user interface handles the translation of 
business requirements to complex coding. Users have all the advantages of COBOL, (e.g. performance, 
multi-database, multi-system), without having to understand and use it. As a result, resources can be 
managed more effi ciently. 
Test Data Management 
MetaSuite not only allows you to create subsets of data sets by using powerful sampling techniques, 
you can also make sure that the public and company privacy rules are respected. MetaSuite comes with 
predefi ned obfuscation functions and allows you to defi ne your own obfuscation functions. MetaSuite 
can also be used for data value discovery and data statistics 
Metasuite product folder 6 
By using MetaSuite for generating test data, you’ll be sure that: 
• You can create representative data subsets by applying the appropriate sampling 
function, 
• You respect privacy regulations and internal governance rules and 
• You generate consistent obfuscated data sets that respect relations between.
Metasuite product folder 7 
User friendliness 
METASUITE is equipped with an easy-to-use graphical user interface that features: 
• A visual development environment. 
• Source and target wizards. 
• Building of mapping rules through point-and-click. 
• Distributed development and deployment. 
Data extraction projects typically are repetitive, and maintenance can be diffi cult and timeconsuming, 
because coding needs to be modifi ed for each change. With METASUITE, development of routines is 
easy, as is their maintenance. A considerable part of the changes consists of metadata alterations, 
which are handled in a simple way thanks to METASUITE’s metadata approach. 
Full documentation 
As applications generated with METASUITE are self-explanatory, the creation of programmer 
documentation is simplifi ed. The availability of metadata to business users will help them to better 
understand the data they are analyzing. 
Data quality control 
METASUITE allows for highly qualitative data integration generation and maintenance. Every data 
processing event comes with a comprehensive audit log, which includes the number of records handled, 
records in error, elapsed time, etc. Additionally, METASUITE can be used to defi ne a range of audit 
reports, including a Duplicates Report and a Statistical Summary Report. 
Connectivity 
METASUITE supports a variety of operating systems, including z/OS, BS2000, DOS VSE, VMS, UNIX, 
OS/400, Linux, and Windows. In order to optimize the extraction process, METASUITE supports native 
database features that use database indexes and navigation process options. Supported sources 
include: 
• IMS 
• IDMS 
• DATACOM/DB 
• ADABAS 
• VSAM, QSAM 
• Sequential fi les 
• Delimited fi les 
• XML 
• Any RDBMS including DB2, ORACLE, TERADATA, INFORMIX, SYBASE
METASUITE delivers the required target data along with RDBMS specifi c load scripts, to process all 
these data fi les. 
Open system 
Due to the openness of METASUITE, organizations can leverage existing system schedulers, security 
mechanisms and fi le transport systems to ease operations. Also, through its openness, METASUITE 
seamlessly connects to almost all commercially available data mining, OLAP and end-user reporting 
solutions.

  • 3. Overview METASUITE is a powerful solution that enables organizations to gain access to the information that is hidden in the large amounts of operational data that reside in their business applications. A key element in today’s decision making, information about a business’ customers, suppliers and competitors needs to be available to the right people in the right format at the right moment. Current solutions that access, move, integrate and forward the huge volumes of transaction data that decision support requires, are often limited in their capabilities. Many business users are fi nding these solutions to be inadequate either in content, accessibility, usability, and performance or in their ability to bring together data from many disparate systems. Based on standard technologies, METASUITE was specifi cally designed to perform even the largest and most complex data retrieval, data conversion, and data integration jobs. Metasuite product folder 3 METASUITE off ers: • One solution for handling all data integration functions. • Native database support. • Support to move data from any source to any target. • Support to move data from simple to highly complex data structures. • Multi-Platform support. • Superior processing performance. • Simplifi ed maintenance, as routine changes require only minor adjustments. • A short learning curve. • Scalability. • Reporting and audit facilities. Key benefi ts • Integration of information from anywhere in the enterprise. • A uniform format of information, i.e. a single version of the truth. • Timely access to vital information. • Distribution of knowledge throughout the enterprise. • Flexibility to support the changing need of information. • Easy access to information about the data stored in a warehouse, both for end-users and database professionals.
  • 4. Data extraction and transformation done better When organizations need to access, move, integrate and forward very large volumes of data, they are looking for solutions to perform these tasks in a fast, easy and reliable way. Ideally, they would like to have just one single solution to cover: Metasuite product folder 4 • Data Conversions. • Data Migrations. • Creating and maintaining Data Warehouses / Data Marts. • Creating and maintaining Operational Data Stores. METASUITE is that single solution, as it contains the functionality to: • Migrate very large volumes of data from operational systems to any target platform or to a data warehouse, data mart or ODS. • Convert and transform the data prior to storage in a database. • Build, run and maintain the routines to process these large data volumes With METASUITE any data integration routine can be rapidly deployed to supply a quick response to ever changing information needs. Next to off ering a low cost of ownership, METASUITE also frees overburdened mainframes from analysis tasks, and helps to promote the use of third party analysis and reporting tools. Single-pass architecture for superior processing per-formance METASUITE provides a unique, single-pass processing architecture for maximum effi ciency and superior performance of data extraction and data migration, rather than having to process source data multiple times for various selection criteria. This single-pass architecture allows a single program to: • Process multiple sources within the same single process. • Process multiple records within a source. • Create multiple targets, leading to: • Reduction of the time required for extraction, so that the batch window can be shrunk even when data volumes increase. • Reduction of CPU usage leading to a reduction of operating costs. • Simplifi cation of the scheduling process, because less programs need to be scheduled and managed.
  • 5. Main architecture METASUITE has been designed to take full advantage of the potential of operating systems and databases to provide users with a maximum return on their investment and to minimize their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Metasuite product folder 5 METASUITE’s main architecture consists of: MetaStore Manager (to maintain data descriptions) MetaStore Manager guides you through the process of building a data descriptions dictionary, which can be obtained in four ways: • By creating data defi nitions manually for diff erent source types. Dictionary Files, Records and Fields can be defi ned for standard Files, Adabas File Groups, Datacom File Groups, IMS PCB, SQL Table Groups, IDMS Sub Schemas, Supra Databases, XML fi les etc… • By collecting or capturing fi les directly from the database via an ODBC connection or from a specifi c fi le describing the record structures in one of the supported languages or formats. This can be done from Cobol Copy Books, PL/I Include Books, IDMS punches, SAP DMI, DB2 DDL, etc. • During the collection process, MetaStore also generates the required load and unload scripts for various RDBMS types. • By exporting and importing data defi nitions from other METASUITE repositories. • By investigating data (CSV fi les, XML fi les) using the parsing tool. MetaMap (to defi ne the datafl ow) The transformation of operational data into a format that fi ts the target environment is achieved via the MetaMap application of METASUITE. MetaMap enables users to quickly and easily create data integration mappings. Those mappings can be simple or highly complex. A Mapping Wizard and a Structured Editor guides users through the creation of the mapping rules, which defi ne the cleaning, fi ltering, transformation, and consolidation processes. Generating the MetaMap model will lead to a COBOL source code and a run script, which is operating system and COBOL vendor specifi c. The modifi cation of the business map and technical rules, and the subsequent code generation is performed in the background. The complete run-time process can be customized to ensure performance optimization and to deal with specifi c conditions not taken care of in the rules. All process steps can be fully automated to reduce the development time and increase ease of use. MetaTrace (to keep track of data use) METASUITE’s web-based metadata browser MetaTrace will detect any application that is aff ected by a particular change, and it monitors data usage and changes. MetaTrace also provides the features for interrogating the used metadata into the diff erent MetaMap applications, transformation rules and owners.
  • 6. The metadata approach One of the main challenges in transforming and converting data is managing changes in the operational data environment. This is why METASUITE fi rst defi nes and stores metadata for the data sources and targets. METASUITE can also handle multiple versions of the same data defi nition. Changes in the metadata can be captured in the metadata repository, which can contain the defi nitions of all technical, editing and validation information related to the changes. This metadata is then used to generate the data transformation routines. METASUITE is the only data integration solution that allows you to perform these tasks over and over again. As a result, METASUITE’s metadata always refl ects the actual data in the operational environment. Special features Filtering and transforming METASUITE allows you to only select the data you need. It provides powerful options for fi ltering data, in order to minimize the data volume to be transferred to the target relational database. For instance legacy data types are transformed to standard RDBMS formats. Hiding legacy system complexity METASUITE collects, consolidates and centralizes data, through its intuitive graphical user interface, from a wide variety of systems using native COBOL generation. It generates COBOL applications and the corresponding custom run scripts for all data systems. Using METASUITE requires no knowledge of the legacy system whatsoever. The METASUITE graphical user interface handles the translation of business requirements to complex coding. Users have all the advantages of COBOL, (e.g. performance, multi-database, multi-system), without having to understand and use it. As a result, resources can be managed more effi ciently. Test Data Management MetaSuite not only allows you to create subsets of data sets by using powerful sampling techniques, you can also make sure that the public and company privacy rules are respected. MetaSuite comes with predefi ned obfuscation functions and allows you to defi ne your own obfuscation functions. MetaSuite can also be used for data value discovery and data statistics Metasuite product folder 6 By using MetaSuite for generating test data, you’ll be sure that: • You can create representative data subsets by applying the appropriate sampling function, • You respect privacy regulations and internal governance rules and • You generate consistent obfuscated data sets that respect relations between.
  • 7. Metasuite product folder 7 User friendliness METASUITE is equipped with an easy-to-use graphical user interface that features: • A visual development environment. • Source and target wizards. • Building of mapping rules through point-and-click. • Distributed development and deployment. Data extraction projects typically are repetitive, and maintenance can be diffi cult and timeconsuming, because coding needs to be modifi ed for each change. With METASUITE, development of routines is easy, as is their maintenance. A considerable part of the changes consists of metadata alterations, which are handled in a simple way thanks to METASUITE’s metadata approach. Full documentation As applications generated with METASUITE are self-explanatory, the creation of programmer documentation is simplifi ed. The availability of metadata to business users will help them to better understand the data they are analyzing. Data quality control METASUITE allows for highly qualitative data integration generation and maintenance. Every data processing event comes with a comprehensive audit log, which includes the number of records handled, records in error, elapsed time, etc. Additionally, METASUITE can be used to defi ne a range of audit reports, including a Duplicates Report and a Statistical Summary Report. Connectivity METASUITE supports a variety of operating systems, including z/OS, BS2000, DOS VSE, VMS, UNIX, OS/400, Linux, and Windows. In order to optimize the extraction process, METASUITE supports native database features that use database indexes and navigation process options. Supported sources include: • IMS • IDMS • DATACOM/DB • ADABAS • VSAM, QSAM • Sequential fi les • Delimited fi les • XML • Any RDBMS including DB2, ORACLE, TERADATA, INFORMIX, SYBASE
  • 8. METASUITE delivers the required target data along with RDBMS specifi c load scripts, to process all these data fi les. Open system Due to the openness of METASUITE, organizations can leverage existing system schedulers, security mechanisms and fi le transport systems to ease operations. Also, through its openness, METASUITE seamlessly connects to almost all commercially available data mining, OLAP and end-user reporting solutions. Metasuite product folder 8
