Research Triangle Park, N.C., Sept. 15, 2000 – Metagenix, Inc. recently began shipping MetaRecon 2.4, a enterprise data management integrated development environment. Tightly incorporated with leading data migration tools, MetaRecon automates and integrates the process of building an EDM system. MetaRecon employs a reverse engineering process to allow the user to load raw data into the software and automatically receive a complete analysis of the source data. MetaRecon analyzes the source data, providing recommendations for the target database such as primary keys, foreign keys, table splits, normalization, dimensions, measures and views of the data. MetaRecon uses this information to build a model of the data. The result is the optimal target database for the EDM application.

MetaRecon automatically generates an extraction, transformation and load (ETL) job for loading the target database from the source and automatically generates the framework for a web portal. MetaRecon allows a user to generate the code in their familiar EDM tools, but from a single environment. Since the code is automatically generated, the speed of implementation is dramatically increased. Because the meta data is based upon the actual source data, accuracy is 100 percent, avoiding the ``code, load and explode'' phenomenon. The outcome is an implementation that avoids the problems commonly encountered by EDM projects. MetaRecon allows users to integrate multiple disparate systems by providing a complete understanding of the meta data and generating the ETL programs to merge the data all in a single, enterprise-strength application environment.
