What are Mappings

Mappings represent the SMARTUNIFIER component that define when and how to exchange/transform data between two or multiple Information Models. In other words, it is acting as a translator between the different Information Models. One Mapping consists of one or multiple Rules. A Rule contains a Trigger, which defines when the exchange/transformation takes place, and a list of actions that are defining how the exchange/transformation is done.
