MERAN – Seamless specification integration

Application area

MERAN provides an efficient approach for the integration of data bases and systems in the specification environment. This additional integration layer is a central component of the MERAN tool suite and can be used to overcome media break and incompatibility between heterogeneous databases and storage systems efficiently and quickly. MERAN has a unified, cross-systems linking structure that allows tracing and resolution across systems boundaries. All relevant data sources can be easily integrated and supplemented as required. In case these data sources are adapted, the implemented workflows will be preserved or be available without changes on the new systems.

Functions at a glance

  • Simple and rapid integration of databases and systems, e.g. IBM Rational DOORS, HP Alm, MS EXCEL etc.
  • Unified user interface for standardised operation
  • Traceability across database and storage systems
  • Partially and fully automated synchronisation of the data stock
  • Easily extensible, modular structure
  • No system-specific expertise required

Benefits of MERAN

Advantages of MERAN

  • Interoperability/synchronisation
  • Working with several systems as if they were "one application"
  • Unified workflows in spite of different source and target systems
  • Simple integration of new source and target systems
  • Standardised user interface and central starting point for simplified cross-systems work
  • Manual and automated migration as well as synchronisation of data between different data base systems


  • Optimal traceability in heterogeneous system landscapes
  • Version and parameter management
  • Manual and automated statistics and analyses
  • Database editor across systems boundaries, e.g. to copy content
  • Configuration of role-specific views
  • Central provision of templates for specification tasks (*)

Extensibility & maintainability

  • Quick extension of functionalities and database connections
  • Functions are automatically available for new source and target systems
  • Modular structure for providing software solutions according to the requirements
  • Central administration possible
