This page covers all relevant information about Tensei-Data. Starting with the installation until your first running data integration.

Getting started

Tensei-Data is a system for data migration, integration and transformation. The structure of the data is described with DFASDLs (Data Format and Description Language). A migration process is specified in a cookbook that collects all mappings and transformations from the source to the target system. An agent executes a complete transformation configuration and can be started manually or automatically.


You can receive a Demo version of the Tensei-Data system or make a request for a business version. Get an overview about the actual licenses or send a request for a free trial version.


First you have to install the VM. A detailed description of the installation of the demo version is available in the following section.
