EIM Functions  

Posted by Rajesh

1 Import Data into Siebel Base Tables:
The EIM import function can be used in several different ways:

  • When initially implementing a Siebel application, load the Siebel database tables with data and file attachments created by external applications. For example, you can import information about product lines and products from an inventory control database into the Products entity in the Siebel database.
  • As part of maintaining the Siebel database, you can use EIM for data archival. This not only provides customers with a Siebel database that is optimally using the resources available to it, but also streamlines the implementation of a corporate data archival strategy.
  • As part of maintaining a non-Siebel database, you can update it with information from the Siebel database. For example, you might add new customers to an accounting database from the Siebel database.

2 Export Data from Siebel Base Tables:
The data contained within a Siebel application is available for transfer to non-Siebel applications by using EIM. When implementing a non-Siebel application, you can export data from the Siebel
database tables for use by that application. For example, you can export employee information to a corporate sales commission application.

3 Delete Data from Siebel Base Tables:
As part of maintaining the Siebel database, you can identify rows to be deleted from a table and its associated child and intersection tables. For example, you might delete an obsolete product line and its associated products.

4 Merge Data in Siebel Base Tables:

In response to such external events as corporate mergers, you can merge two or more database rows into a single row. For example, you might merge the Frame, Inc. account information into the Adobe Corp. account.
