Integration Wizards Document Accelerator
Technical documentation of Integrations and other custom modifications are often left out in favour of more urgent requirements and additional development work.
Eventually this catches up when an issue occurs a year or so later and no one really remembers what logic and business rules were implemented. The only way is to call in a developer to read through the code and
finally document the solution. Even if it is the same developer, chances are that he has forgotten what he did a year or so ago and have to spend additonal time just to understand his own code.
Integration Wizards has developed a solution to get around this by documenting the integration maps (and other code) as they are written.
We use specific tags and document the code as it is written. Then we use a parser which formats our comments in a Word Document under the correct sections.
In addition it also adds additional information, such as the map version, the last update date, what M3 API's are utilized, what translations the map uses etc,
The documentation can be updated in seconds after any changes has been made.
