The alpha release version of d:swarm serves purposes of demonstration and testing and is meant to validate the working principles of the web-based graphical user interface (GUI).
At the stage of the alpha release you can model these ETL processes:
- Import sample data (of small size up to 1,000 records) in CSV and XML formats to d:swarm.
- Configure the schema of the imported sample data.
- Create projects for bundling all transformation processes necessary for converting data resources into target data based on a graph model.
- Map a configured input schema of a sample data resource to an output schema.
- Define data transformation routines for each mapping using a basic set of transformation functions.
- Configure filters that define the conditions for transformation processes.
- Execute data transformations on the imported sample data while modelling and save the results in a central data hub in a property graph.
- View and explore the results within the graphical user interface of the graph database.
- Export all data of the central data hub in RDF for further use.
Functional Restriction of the Alpha Release
- Our design ideas for the GUI are not yet realized in the alpha release.
- A user or rights management model is not implemented yet. Consequently, all users are allowed to do everything. All users have access to all data resources imported to d:swarm and can manipulate and overwrite projects of other all other users. The data in the central data hub is the result of the work of all users.
- There are further functional restrictions that will be resolved in due time according to our roadmap.
