Our Purpose as a Company
netZima is an innovative and dynamic company which has been dedicated to the industrialisation of corporate management software development for over 10 years.
In 2006 the feasibility our ideas on how to efficiently create IT systems was demonstrated with the first commercial version of icaria. We transferred the concept of “lean” from industry to IT technology.
icaria 2.0 was netZima’s production line and competitive advantage for five years during which we demonstrated that creating software automatically is much more efficient than programming by hand. Our team created many business critical IT systems for our clients.
Today other companies are successfully using icaria Lean Factory 3.0 and applying our production process. Since the beginning of 2012 we have been implanting icaria factories within organisations which want to radically improve how they create IT systems and applications.
Sometimes we don’t need to copy the entire production database onto a development or testing enviroment. It migth take a long time to do it and be really expensive in terms of processing and storage resources.
The solution is to select a subset of coherent data, mask it, and copy it onto the target environment. Maybe it is something like “10% of all customers, plus last month invoices”
icaria Mirage provides such capabilities. A subsetting path (or more than one) can be described: it means that the user must provide an starting point, probably a relevant entity like the customer, the invoice, the contract, the policy, or something like that, and then how to jump from one entity to another, so the subsetting path can be completed.
Therefore some knowlege of the data relationships must be known and reported to icaria Mirage.
Image. Setting up the subsetting path
Two out of our three projects requiere subsetting. As this capability was tested during the proof of concept activities, we have gathered all the avaliable information and deliverd it to the client team for rewiew.
Basically, the client team needs to think about the fucntional criteria to define the requiered data. Then they’ll have to decide what paths – relationship among data – are to be used to obtain a coherent set of information.
One of the client teams finds this last task challenging: they do not have enough knwledge nor documentation of the data model and application behaviour to describe the model relationships.
We migth offer some help. Maybe it’s time to test a new icaria Mirage plugin for automated data relationship discovery. It is not released yet, but if we give it a try, we risk nothing.
