The accelerator features three ways to transfer data from the Informatica Product 360 System to the IBM WebSphere Commerce System: full data load, delta data load and transfer data via immediate export. With this functionality it is possible to transfer a single item/product, as well as a selection to the IBM store.
The accelerator features three ways to transfer data from the Product 360 System to the IBM WebSphere Commerce System.
The full data load is designed to transfer all relevant information, including the attribute dictionary, catalog groups, product and item information to IBM, often used for an initial load of the data.
The delta data load is designed to run scheduled in an recurrent manner and transfer the changes which happend since the last run to the IBM system. It takes not only product and item changes but also changes in the attribute dictionary or taxonomy into account. Changing the parent of a catalog group is not supported, as well as changing the type or target of a marketing association of an item or a product.
The third way to transfer data to the IBM system is the immediate export. With this functionality it is possible to transfer a single item or product, as well as a selection of items to the IBM store. This functionality is designed to work for smaller time-critical changes of an item, like changing text information and updating it as soon as possible in the store. Structural changes (like changing the attribute dictionary, catalog groups or group assignment) are not in the scope of this data load
Customers need a licensed Informatica MDM - Product 360 application. Support for all standard functionality of the export engine is part of a customer maintenance contract.
