Hello All,

I have several metadata repositories that are not part of the infosphere tool suite. I’d like to centralize all my metadata in the Metadata Workbench. Is this possible? How would you approach this? Also, if you would share any experiences you’ve had on this topic it would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any help.

It rather depends on how your other metadata are described. The bridges that come with Information Server, and other bridges available from third party providers, can either provide your solution or, ...

Hello Ray,

Thank you. Apologize for the delayed reply. I'm still waiting from my Premium Membership to kick in so I can see your entire reply. I see the first couple of sentence that talk about bridges.

In the meantime I have been looking at bridges and they seem fine for established systems/tools/ERP, etc. Is there a way to build custom bridges for homegrown systems? Is there a way to extend the meta model/schema to support the homegrown systems?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Just in case you haven't seen this, and since you haven't noted what these other sources are:

Hello chulett.

I have seen this link. Thanks.

Apologies for not being more specific. They really are a group of custom homegrown applications built on top of oracle and db2. One example is our customer relationship management system that does not confirm to CRMs off the shelf. So I'm thinking no per-built bridge will work in this case.

Depending on how "standard" the other sources are, Open IGC might be overkill. IMHO, of course.
