If your integration tool does not have a catalog or metadata repository to store all mappings used across the organization, this tool can be used to document the mappings and allow them to be stored in a content and/or knowledge management system.

Use an appropriate naming convention for holding metadata about the mapping contained in the tool. For example: mapping_<source>_<dataobject>_<target>.xlsx will categorize this spreadsheet as a mapping specification between a source and target system for a specific data object.

This tool should be used by a business systems analyst and/or a data steward as input to integration specifications.

This tool can also be used by an integration specialist or application developer hand coding a data map if the integration tool being used does not offer a visual mapping capability, or the mapping is too complex to put into a visual tool.
