Transformation

Boomi

Boomi supports a set of prebuilt transformations through procedures called shapes (such as encryption/decryption, search/replace, test encoding, and combining documents) and lets users create custom preload transformations to convert source application format into the destination format.

When a process runs, the inbound connector in the Start shape retrieves the data within available types (database, EDI, flat file, XML ot JSON). The resulting data goes into the process as one or more documents. Documents move through the process steps sequentially, where each shape performs a specific task on the data and then passes it onto the next shape.

Users can perform their own transformations using the low-code environment of the Talend Pipeline Designer, or invite data engineers to perform complex transformations and operationalize the self-service findings in Talend Studio.
