Mapping between objects in physical data model (PDM) and its respective objects in a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) during Metadata Importing process
Most of the customers use to use data modeling tools (ERwin, PowerDesigner, E/R Studio ...) to design graphically their database structures and then, automatically, generate DDL to build their physical schemas into different RDBMS such as DB2, Oracle, SQL Server and so on. This process creates a natural dependence between these 2 categories of technologies (Data Modeling tools and RDBMS) where the mappings/links between their objects needs to be tracked/recorded for a proper data governance.
So, IKC needs to provide a feature/capability able to create a mapping/link between equivalents objects in physical data model (PDM) and physical RDBMS during Metadata Importing (MDI) process. For instance, TABLES and its ATTRIBUTES in a PDM data model should be linked/mapped to its respective TABLES and FIELDS in a RDBMS, and vice-versa, depending on the order of MDI execution.
