Why use EIM ?
Siebel Enterprise Integration Manager (EIM) manages the exchange of data between Siebel database tables and other corporate databases.
Direct modification of data in base tables is not recommended because
— There are many logical relationships that exist within the Siebel base tables and they are often complex, and governed by the Siebel repository metadata.
— Direct modification of Siebel base tables is not supported because there is a high risk of data integrity corruption. EIM maintains data integrity and resolves foreign key relationships during the import process.
— In addition, EIM data inserts, updates, or deletes get routed to mobile users with Siebel Remote local databases or Siebel replicated nodes.
