The Xillio Unified Data Model (UDM) consists of a data model and API, built on top of MongoDB. In short, the UDM is our one-size-fits-all data model that we use to store data in-between extraction and import.
How does the UDM work?
Extracted data from the source system is converted to the UDM using templates. One or more transformation operations (e.g. deduplication, restructuring, improving metadata) can be performed directly on the data in the UDM. The data is converted from UDM to the data type required for the target system using templates.
Finally, the converted data is imported in the target system.
