DCA v10 - More Flexibilty for Complex Data Migrations!

Data Conversion Architect version 10 is now available

Universal Conversion Technologies, (UCT), the leader in data migrations for Insurance industry, is excited to announce our newest release of our Data Conversion Architect tool set (DCA), version 10.

Among the many enhancements in DCA v10, any number of DCA systems can now be combined into a single conversion project. This increases DCA flexibility and allows a DCA virtual conversion project to closely reflect an actual conversion project. Also added to DCA v10 are new map search features, expanded table processing capabilities, and enhancements to DCA's already robust data security features. Read on for a brief summary of major enhancements.

  • New System Features - DCA v10 adds a new type of system (utility) and enforces no restrictions to how many systems can be added to a DCA conversion project. This allows a DCA virtual project to closely mimic actual customer conversion projects where it is common for there to be multiple source or target systems. This new feature increases DCA v10 ease of use. In addition, it also gives the user the ability to create a new system by copying a different DCA system, shortening the system creation process.
  • Improved Datamap Find and Replace - The datamap find and replace feature in DCA has been added to the top of the datamap edit pages and is compatible with all Internet Explorer versions. The user interface is intuitive and makes finding or replacing strings in the datamap easier than ever.
  • Table Entry Maximum Length - Tables in DCA v10 now include a maximum length for the source and target values. These fields are used while validating maps to alert the user of potential data truncation. They are also used in the conversion code that is generated by DCA to check for run-time data truncation.
  • Formatted Tables - In DCA, a "table" relates source and target system values so that a source value can be translated into the correct corresponding target system value. Tables can contain many thousands of values and can be unwieldy. The new Formatted Tables feature creates a portable and user-friendly report of tables used in a DCA project. Reports are created in easy to use Excel/HTML format so they can be easily shared for reviews and walkthroughs.
  • New Record Definition Create/Edit Features - Record definitions, like copybooks in a COBOL system, are often created or modified to meet some data conversion need. DCA v10 has added a new feature for creating a record definition from scratch as well as another feature for creating a record definition from a copy of a different record definition. In addition, DCA v10 builds-in information to help the non-programmer ensure that created and edited COBOL copybooks are syntactically correct.
  • Data Security Rules - DCA v10 adds new rules to the set of conversion rules that a user can enter into a datamap. With Version 10, the user can use these rules to hide converted field data so it can be used for target system loading and testing without exposing sensitive client information to unauthorized parties.
