This article describes how to import and export metadata between Talend Studio and external IT systems.

Powered by Meta Integration® Model Bridge (MIMB), the Talend Metadata Bridge brings into the Talend Studio import and export capabilities for metadata. Using the Talend Metadata Bridge you can import metadata into your Talend Studio and export metadata from your Talend Studio to external IT systems including:

  • process modeling tools such as CA ErWin, Embarcadero ER/Studio, IBM Infosphere Data Architect or SAP Power Designer
  • Business Intelligence databases or front-ends such as Oracle Essbase and OBI, SAP BW or Business Objects, Microstrategy, QlikView, Tableau, and so on
  • ETL tools such as IBM Infosphere DataStage and Informatica PowerCenter
  • Applications such as Excel, Access, or Visio

The Talend Metadata Bridge requires a separate installation and some optional preference settings to enable it to work the way you want. From Talend Studio 5.6.2 onwards, the Talend Metadata Bridge is installed through the [Additional Talend Packages] wizard. If you are using Talend Studio 5.6.1, contact your Talend support for information on how to obtain and install the Talend Metadata Bridge.
