About Development Areas

The Development Areas are created to store each of the working datasources of the Working databases. (Ex: WRKOTC and WRKOTC_L) During the development and mock loading of data the tables and data will be stored in these working databases for static capture and use.

A Development Area is setup for each set of like datasets that run Migrate ETL or Reporting. They may be set as each transaction set of the target system (Ex:  OTC, RTR, or MDM). The Development Areas serve to group Datasets through the working databases of for the purpose of running conversion and generating reports. As example, the MDG Development Area would contain WRKMDG_D (DEV) and WRKMDG_L (LOAD). As the Subject Areas are created for the same groups of like datasets, a default Development Area will also create with same name as the Subject Area as part of the Guided Setup steps.

NOTEAll databases are created manually by the user and not as part of this process.
