Most automation is fragile. That's why we built Blueprints Sync differently from most automation.
Blueprints Sync handles incoming data intelligently. You can re-situate, annotate, and alter automated elements, and it will still be able to find them when updates arrive.
It uses a version of the extract-transform-load (ETL) pattern from enterprise architecture and data virtualization, with unique heuristics made possible by the nature of the Blueprints data store.
The result is that human-curated and automated data can be interwoven without the constant tug-of-war that so often happens.
How it works
1 First, data from a known source is provided. The source can be arbitrary, as long as it has a well-specified format.
2 Blueprints SmartSync converts this source data into a canonical form using a transformer, which knows how to translate between formats.
3 Blueprints SmartSync maps the canonical form to the elements of the Blueprints model using intelligent heuristics to avoid disturbing the existing model structure.
4 Once the mapping is obtained, the updates can be applied, and the changes immediately propagate to all users through the realtime system.
