An Infor Landmark Replication Set is a powerful tool to select, extract and transform Infor Landmark technology platform-based application data. For example, Infor CloudSuite Financials & Supply Management and Infor Global Human Resources application data. The Infor Landmark Replication Set feature is a capability provided by the Infor Landmark Technology Runtime platform. An Infor Landmark Replication Set can select data from Infor application business classes and fields and user defined business classes and user defined fields. An Infor Landmark Replication Set is customer configurable and runs based on a defined schedule. Once the Infor Landmark Replication Set runs the first time to export the selected data, from then on only the selected data’s delta changes are exported. This means that an Infor Landmark Replication Set is incremental replication, which is highly efficient compared to traditional extract, transform and load tools. Infor Landmark Replication Set capabilities apply to any Infor Landmark technology platform-based application and to Infor cloud-based customers and Infor on-premises customers
Since the Infor Landmark Replication Set feature is applicable to every Infor Landmark technology platform-based application, Infor will be posting here on the Infor Technology Blog a series of Infor Landmark Replication Set videos describing and demonstrating this powerful feature. The video demonstrations are hosted and narrated by one of Infor’s foremost Infor Landmark Replication Set subject matter experts, Don Peterson, Principal Business Analyst.
The Infor Landmark Replication Sets video series will include:
Part 1: An Overview
Part 2: How to Create a Replication Set
In this post’s part 1 video, Don answers the question: What are Infor Landmark Replication Sets? He does so by first comparing the various methods to select and extract Infor Landmark technology platform-based application data. These include Infor Spreadsheet Designer, List View report, Infor Process Automation, DBExport and web services APIs (application programming interface). Then, Don describes the Infor Landmark Replication Set feature and its capabilities. Be sure to watch for the upcoming Infor Landmark Replication Set videos in the coming weeks.
