Using another system as the data source.

If I want to be able to associate data (both goals, and the metrics that support them) from another system, is this currently possible / easy / difficult / untried?

As an example, if already have an enterprise system which records my corporate goals and how I measure them (as well as the relationships between these goals), can I easily interface this data into goalscape?

Many thanks,

    Hi Tim - thanks for your question.

    We have lots of customers who have migrated goals and project data from other environments into Goalscape; right now however we do not have any formal data import/export from/to other applications. We are investigating various options in this area, including full integration with Outlook and different proprietary calendars; and possibly using .xls or .csv files as intermediate formats in the near term.

    What is the "enterprise system" you are using? Does it have an export utility - and if so what file format does it use?

    I'm working with Metastorm's ProVision and BPM products. The goals and metrics are available from the database, and probably also by web methods or other systems. Ideally, it would be great for people to be able to build goals and metrics in Goalscape or ProVision, and then 'round trip' the results ...

    Thanks Tim

    I understand ProVision has its own "open" interface format for integrating with other tools, which probably merits further investigation.
