The i-Performance Planning Data Integration Utility was created for the purpose of enabling 9Dots V-i-Performance (ViP) clients to upload data directly to their ViP Data Integration Layer environments. Clients upload their data in a Comma Separated Value (CSV). The application suite handles the end-to-end process of validating this data, loading the data to their ViP environment, and maintaining what files the client has uploaded.
The client has the option of either loading the data by:
Interacting with a web page to load the files
Using the Monitor utility to process files that are copied to a specified directory.
The validation and loading of the data are handled similarly, regardless of which option the client should choose.
