DFB Consulting designed and developed the Conversion Engine to enable rapid development and professional delivery of data migration and conversion services.
Without a toolkit specifically engineered for data migrations, conversion projects are frequently approached with an attempt to utilize whatever utilities are available (scripting languages, integration engines, ftp servers, etc.). This leads to projects that grow in complexity, consume more resources and time, and often impact project schedules.
The Conversion Engine addresses the requirements of a conversion project with numerous abilities unique to the conversion and migration effort. Among these are:
·Database analysis tools to enable rapid discovery of your source data. ·Testing tools to allow for generation of data sets that support testing criteria; support rapid message modification and resend; and provide web based validation data to resources responsible for testing verification. ·Support for multiple transfer formats. ·Conversion data sequencing to allow control both within a data set (e.g. Lab results converted in reverse chronological order to get most recent results in first) or across data sets (e.g. a Patient followed by her Encounters followed by her Results to allow concurrent data set conversions while maintaining data sequencing dependencies of the receiving system). ·Event driven conversion triggers to allow external events to modify the conversion behavior (e.g. a patient admission causes the patient?s clinical history to become the top conversion priority activity). ·Intelligent incremental conversion processing that compares both changes to the source record and the conversion status of the record to determine appropriate actions. ·Conversion speed adjustments to control loads on the both the source and destination systems. ·Detailed conversion status reporting. ·Full auditing capabilities down to the individual conversion record.
