IDEA Announces Deployment of new ETIM fields – January 2019

Arlington, VA— IDEA is pleased to announce that its data synchronization platform can now fully support the exchange of all ETIM version 7.0 data, including ETIM Class, Features, and Values, as was announced in the Fall 2018 Standards release.  These ETIM fields will also be included in the new IDEA Connector℠ platform once released.

Similar to the template used for loading/extracting attributes based on the IDEA Classification Attribute Standard, IDEA developed the new capability specifically to load/extract the full set of attributed data based on the ETIM standard.
