Convert ERwin Data Modeler to COOL:BusinessTeam

Current version: 6.59

Important to know

The TOOLBUS Interface for AllFusion ERwin Data Modeler and COOL:BusinessTeam / COOL:DBA (formerly available as Bachman/Analyst / GroundWorks / Bachman/DBA / Terrain for DB2 ) enables the migration of Logical Models (Entity-Relationship Models) from COOL:BusinessTeam (or from GroundWorks, Bachman/Analyst) and the migration of Physical Models from COOL:DBA (or from Terrain, Bachman/DBA) to AllFusion ERwin 4.1.

Conversion Process

The TOOLBUS Interface provides three migration paths: 1. Migration of Logical Models from COOL:BusinessTeam/GroundWorks to AllFusion ERwin: • Entity-Relationship Data Models (Entities, Attributes, Partnerships, Domains, Allowed Value Tables) are migrated from COOL:BusinessTeam (or from GroundWorks, Bachman/Analyst) to AllFusion ERwin. • The System Maps to the physical model, which are found in the COOL:BusinessTeam/GroundWorks model, ar e evaluated, and physical names are inserted into the AllFusion ERwin model for Tables and Columns. Remark: Additional physical information can be added to the migrated model, and the model can be updated, by using AllFusion ERwin’s „Complete Compare“ function. • Allowed Value Tables from COOL:BusinessTeam/GroundWorks are migrated to Table Validation Rules in AllFusion ERwin. • When migrating models from COOL:BusinessTeam to AllFusion ERwin, Filters are translated to Subject Areas in AllFusion ERwin, and the layout of the Entity-Relationship Diagrams is reproduced to a high degree. For GroundWorks, the layout of the whole Entity Model is reproduced, and for the Filters a default layout is generated. Migration Process: To migrate a COOL:BusinessTeam/GroundWorks model to AllFusion ERwin, it must be exported into a VAR file. The TOOLBUS Interface generates a XML file for AllFusion ERwin 4.1 from the VAR export file. 2. Migration of Physical Models from COOL:DBA to AllFusion ERwin: • Relational Models (Databases, Tables, Columns, Indexes, etc.) are migrated from COOL:DBA (or from Terrain, Bachman/DBA) to AllFusion ERwin. • The System Maps to the logical model, which are found in the COOL:DBA/Terrain model, are evaluated, and logical names are inserted into the AllFusion ERwin model for Entities and Attributes. Migration Process: To migrate a COOL:DBA model to AllFusion ERwin 4.1, the model must be exported into a VAR file. The TOOLBUS Interface generates a XML file for AllFusion ERwin 4.1 from the VAR export file. 3. Migration of Logical & Physical Models from COOL:BusinessTeam and COOL:DBA to AllFusion ERwin: The export files from COOL:BusinessTeam and COOL:DBA are migrated together: • The Logical Model in AllFusion ERwin is created from the COOL:BusinessTeam (or GroundWorks) model, as described for migration path 1 above. • The Physical Model in AllFusion ERwin is created from the COOL:DBA (or Terrain) model, as described for migration path 2 above. • The System Maps to the Logical Model, which are found in the COOL:DBA/Terrain model, are evaluated, and links to the logical names are inserted into the AllFusion ERwin model for Entities and Attributes. Migration Process: To migrate a COOL:BusinessTeam model together with a COOL:DBA model to AllFusion ERwin 4.1, both models must be exported into VAR files. The TOOLBUS Interface generates an XML file for AllFusion ERwin 4.1 from the VAR export files.
