DATA STEWARDSHIP PLATFORM™ (DSP™) TRAINING

Course Overview

The DSP Development course is dedicated to designing and creating Applications (WebApps) and Pages using the DSP Framework.

The DSP Framework is a powerfully simple codeless web development environment. The technology offers a robust way to dynamically design scalable and secure WebApps that compliment or extend business processes.

All BackOffice Associates® applications built on the Data Stewardship Platform (DSP) are built using this development platform technology. The goal of this course is to gain a better understanding of the extensive features available in the Framework by creating a new WebApp and applying advanced development techniques. The exercises offer a solid foundation to understanding how our Migration, Quality, and Governance solutions are built and how they function.

This class is constructed to provide maximum information in an allotted time frame to become proficient in building and modifying a WebApp.

Objective

Upon completion of this class, participants will understand:
  • Proper techniques in building basic WebApps using the DSP framework.
  • How to create and register Menus, Pages, Parent and Dependent pages, Page Links, Page Properties and Column Properties.
  • How to create and regiser validation rules and business stored procedures and to demonstrate competency in documenting business requirements.
  • Enabling Excel Integration and Bulk Execution of Validation and Business Rules.
  • Implementation of Security and Security Roles

Course Overview

This training class is designed to provide hands on interaction to demonstrate how to begin the migration process using dspMigrate.

The training begins with Collect® and elements from DSPCommon® to start a migration process in the Data Stewardship Platform® (DSP®). From there the training covers the basic functionality and use of dspMigrate™ from project scope and global design to mapping, data transformation, reporting and construction.  The exercises leverage the flow between the various DSP application components and align relevant data to replicate a migration process.

Collect, Common, Console, Design, Map, Automation, Transform and Construct are utilized during the training which are part of the core components of DSP and dspMigrate™.

Objective

Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to:
  • Manage data using the Collect component including creating connections, targets, and sources
  • Leverage Groups to organize and manage sets of tables 
  • Create System Types to drive the migration process through Common 
  • Create Waves and Elements in Console for reuse in dspMigrate™
  • Create Security in System Admin
  • Import and Configure a Target in Design 
  • Configure Basic and Complex Rules in Design to be generated in SAP Data Services
  • Perform field mapping

    Prerequisites

    SQL Server database designer experience is recommended but not required. No web development skills are necessary.

    Course Overview

    This training is designed to demonstrate the closed loop remediation end to end process using the basic functionality in Information Steward Accelerator™ (ISA) to view the failed data and dspCompose™ to remediate the failed data in a controlled way. The course will cover the business user perspective and then how to develop the business user experience. To create the Business User experience, IS rules will be registered in ISA and Template development in dspCompose to create a reusable remediation tool. Templates are linked to the failed data reports from ISA and are the basis of all requests for the business users. Template development includes various template configurations resulting in multiple ways to remediate failed data. Development includes adding roles that determine data distribution and approval through the use of excel, workflow enabled emails and front end data entry.

    dspConduct is an application within the Data Stewardship Platform™ (DSP™), provides a Data Driven Governance solution for governing data business processes across distinct applications and infrastructures. It provides the ability to design, execute, and monitor business processes within an organization as they relate to the creation and maintenance of data within the enterprise architecture of an organization. A Designer creates the governance elements hierarchy, where tasks, roles, scenarios, business processes and their dependencies are defined. The Users then become requesters and role processes of the processes designed. This course focuses on the design, implementation, and execution of the data driven processes to implement end-to-end data governance scenarios.

    Prerequisites

    The following are hard required prerequisites:
    • SQL Server database designer experience
    • DSP Development Training or relevant work experience

    Course Overview

    Integrate™ is a component of the Data Stewardship Platform® (DSP) that contains loading mechanisms to push data into one or many business systems.

    If the Business System is an SAP ERP system, Integrate comes pre-configured to load using the following SAP proprietary load mechanisms:
    • Batch Data Communication (BDC) processing
    • Graphical User Interface (GUI) scripting
    • A Remote Function Call (RFC) or a BAPI
    Integrate can also create and transfer user defined text files formatted as Delimited, Fixed Width, or XML.

    Other types of interfacing technologies include the execution of SAP Data Services Jobs as well as a Custom Template API allowing the creation and execution of custom integrations.

    Integrate and can be used by any platform component (including the framework) to post data to the target system.

    Integrate is organized into templates and processes. A template is based on a template type and defines how data is posted into a business system. Templates are not tied to data, but rather act as an independent guide for posting that can be assigned to one or more processes. A process is a series of posting steps that defines how Integrate takes data from the component and loads it into the systems.

    Objective

    Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to:
    • Manage Templates
    • Manage Processes
    • Manage Process Template Loops
