Flexible Data Integration Enhancements Accelerate Time to Value for Complex Integration Projects
ATLANTA, GA – March 6, 2013
Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, today announced significant upgrades to the Contivo® data integration and management solution. The release contains key features purpose-built to accelerate time to value, including JSON mapping and native Electronic Document Interchange (EDI) modeling to increase the efficiency and simplicity of Representational State Transfer (ReST) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) enablement.
Most integration teams spend weeks discovering – and rediscovering – the semantics of data that need to be integrated. By helping teams implement iteratively, Contivo reduces effort by 40 percent on the first project, and by 70 percent in maintenance over time. Liaison’s latest updates to Contivo offer increased productivity through enhanced automation, flexible development, and the quality, repeatability, and consistency that helps avoid errors and keeps projects on track.
Key new features and upgrades include:
- Upgraded Legacy Integrator enhances the flat-file handling capabilities of Contivo Analyst, supporting international data with multi-byte character encoding, and provides improved error detection and reporting.
- Enhanced Contivo APIs, including a new Java API, provide extended programmatic control and data sharing.
- New repository protocols for injecting metadata, and enhancements to existing protocols for querying of maps, interfaces, and metadata.
- Extended data integration, data architecture analysis, and reporting capabilities with strengthened repository analysis and reporting.
- Complex Mappings that give users the ability to query source data by allowing looping associations to non-repeating target groups and fields.
“The rise of cloud applications has added incredible complexity to data integration,” said Larry Mieldezis, COO at Liaison Technologies. “While integration of A2A and B2B systems was already a challenge, cloud applications and the transition of many traditional B2B systems to the cloud have added a whole new dimension to the mix. As complexity continues to evolve, we’re committed to ensuring that Contivo remains a fluid, scalable solution that can adapt to meet new integration challenges for our customers and for our ecosystem of SaaS and cloud partners.”

More about Liaison Contivo
Contivo enables users to capture, manage, organize and leverage all of the integration metadata in an enterprise. By associating the metadata with a semantic “dictionary”, Contivo establishes an integration vocabulary and thesaurus. Contivo then leverages the vocabulary and thesaurus to automate data transformation and reconciliation tasks that are traditionally implemented using manual mapping techniques.
