It all starts with our Free Trial
If you haven’t already, setup your trial site so you can explore all the great things that MapWorks does. We need to collect some details to configure your site, but you don’t need a credit card to start exploring. Be sure to add your team as users so they can check it out too!
Then explore the preloaded sample
Open up the Sample folder and you’ll see everything that we’ve loaded for you. In the folder, we’ve setup sample Systems that you can drill into.
Customer Information System
Real-time Order Processing System
Integrated Data Warehouse
Each of the sources has data files or tables with sample data elements. In our example project, we map data elements from the source systems into the Integrated Data Warehouse and then into a downstream Report.
For each data element, there’s a lot of information
Click on a data element and then look at each tab in the information window.
Business and technical metadata
Mapping rules and filter criteria
Maintain valid values
View upstream and downstream lineage charts
