Use this data integration mapping template for preliminary examination of mapping requirements. This template will help you:
- Document the sources of your data through designation of field name, data type, and description.
- Assign mapping rule types such as: copy, format, transform, augment, constant, calculate, and filter to your source data with the ability to coordinate rules with each type.
- Keep track of the targets that the sources and mapping rules lead to.
- Standardize the sources and targets through logical field naming to avoid redundancies and inefficiencies.
A comprehensive mapping of data sources and targets will allow for easy organization and tracking of data. It also provides a good overview of the anticipated requirements your data integration initiative will need to meet.
