We’ve reported previously on support for node functions that simplify mapping structured data by eliminating need to copy-paste a function multiple times into a mapping. Repeating the same function unnecessarily clutters the mapping layout and makes the data mapping more difficult to understand or revise. MapForce also includes additional filters are available for defining node functions. These parameters allow developers to apply functions and default values to specific nodes based on custom-defined criteria. For example, you can apply a node function based on node metadata such as the node n ..read more

How to Create Batch Data Mapping Projects

A common requirement in data processing is batch data mapping, especially in the context of data transformation and integration. It involves converting data in batches rather than processing individual data points one at a time. Batch data mapping is often required in data integration scenarios where input from multiple sources needs to be aligned or transformed together. Two common scenarios are “batch to batch” and “batch to one.” In our latest series of MapForce demo videos, we explore these common data mapping challenges. BATCH TO BATCH DATA MAPPING Batch to batch data mapping is helpful i ..read more
