Model Migration vs Upgrade
 Model Migration


Copy the model schema or the model
schema + data from one environment to
another
Both source and target systems have the
same MDS application version
 MDS upgrade

Move from one version to another in a
specific deployment. It involves
• Installing the new bits by using
SQL Server Setup wizard
• Upgrade the MDS database
schema
Model migration overview
Implementation and testing
Iterative process until approved by test
•
MDS
Dev
•
Define the model structure
and objects
Perform initial validation
MDS
Test
•
Perform System Integration
testing
•
Perform User Acceptance
testing
Copy the model structure and schema to the test env
Copy the model structure and schema to the Prod env
Production
•
MDS
Prod (sub)
•
Use the main production
environment model structure &
data as a starting point
Add new entities, attributes as
needed
MDS
Prod
•
Upload and manage Master
Data by business users
•
Requires validation and
approval before updating
model schema
Model migration overview
MDS supports the following capabilities
• Migrate the full model structure or model structure +
data
• Migrate new objects (entities, attributes, business rules
etc). This is called model update
• Migrate only selected objects (Business Rules,
Subscription views, derived hierarchies, entities) and
their dependencies. This is called partial model
deployment
