Data transformation tools
Reduce the time, effort and costs of enterprise integration with a smarter approach to data transformation
Data is the cornerstone of successful digital transformation, but it comes in a wide variety of formats. Whether structured or unstructured, in various programming languages or in different date, time, number and language formats, data varies greatly across enterprise ecosystems. Data transformation tools address these variations to combine and extract value out of enterprise data.
OpenText™ Contivo™ is a data transformation tool used to create specifications for data usage and map data between various structured formats and standards. Allowing organizations to reconcile data diversity, no matter how complex, Contivo extracts value out of data to enable integration and insights across the enterprise.

What are data transformation tools?
Data transformation tools enable data translation, the process of converting data from one format to another. This conversion enables disparate enterprise applications, APIs and other systems to correctly process and share data between them. Data conversion can range from simple transformations to match sets of corresponding fields between two data models to complex transformations requiring advanced logic and business process workflows to be coded in the data map.
OpenText Contivo overview
Contivo tackles the challenges of data transformation in a flexible and systematic way. Contivo’s advanced tooling provides the power and flexibility that business analysts, application developers, mappers and others need to achieve their desired outcomes.
Contivo works in projects that use canonical formats as well as in those that use source-to-target specific maps. To deploy the developed transformations to a service, cloud or middleware, Contivo generates code that can run in virtually any Java environment and can also produce XSLT. When requirements change, Contivo updates maps with data formats or transformation logic and verifies that they have been successfully changed, without breaking existing processes. This introduces unparalleled flexibility and helps organizations to dramatically reduce the time, effort, resources and money spent on data transformation.
OpenText Contivo features
