Simple, Powerful Data Conversion Application
Press release from November 29, 2010
FlowHeater GmbH has released FlowHeater Designer v. 1.2, a powerful Windows application that imports, dynamically converts, and exports data. Unlike complicated data conversion tools that require you to be - or hire - a programmer, FlowHeater Designer delivers a simple way to transfer data from one format to another. Using a simple graphical user interface to define the modifications needed to transform your data, you simply move it from place to place. By streamlining the data conversion function, FlowHeater Designer eliminates one of the major bottlenecks that cause cost- and time-overruns in many application development projects.
FlowHeater Designer can convert data between text, MS Excel, MS Access, MS SQL Server, MySQL (Enterprise and Server), Oracle databases, and any ODBC data source. While moving data from one format to another, it's easy to manipulate text files, perform calculations on arithmetic fields, or adjust dates and times. You can perform if-then-else logic, consolidate data, turn a single record into multiple records, and alter the sequence of the records. With no programming knowledge, users can perform the real-world conversion tasks that used to take a team of programmers and end-users weeks or months to complete.
Advanced users will appreciate FlowHeater Designer's support of .NET data tables. This functionality allows developers to add .NET programming into the FlowHeater Designer process. It also supports including FlowHeater Designer functionality in custom .NET programs.
FlowHeater Designer has a module dedicated to test data generation. It's easy to create a large file of test records that contain any combination of static and dynamic content. FlowHeater Designer eliminates the need to create test records manually.
Whether you're a technical manager who wants to provide your end-users with the tools necessary to convert their data from a legacy program to tomorrow's new system, a computer consultant who needs to convert your customers' data to run on software on a new platform, or a project manager who needs an orderly, efficient way to create test data for a new system, FlowHeater Designer has the tools that you need.
FlowHeater Designer v. 1.2 runs under Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/Windows 7 and requires .NET Framework 2.0 or newer. A single-user license costs $112(US).
FlowHeater Designer + Batch, available for $224, includes a batch module for automated, scheduled execution. The feature-limited Freeware version, with the ability to process up to 10,000 records, is available without charge.
