DataMirror is also committed to providing future support for the next version of the Object Management Group's Common Warehouse MetaModel (CWM) which is currently in development.
"Meta data management is absolutely essential to ensure a successful business intelligence or CRM implementation," said Nigel Stokes, chairman, president and CEO of DataMirror Corporation. "How well the data replenishment solution you choose manages meta data will directly affect the performance of presentation tools and the overall effectiveness of the data warehouse. Using Transformation Server, organizations can now easily export meta data to another repository or directly into end-user query and analysis tools. Without this functionality, companies often must resort to time- consuming custom development that may negatively impact time to market."
