Having spent some time working with the Cameo Systems Modeler, I Identified a set of options for importing excel based Information into Cameo. Of this set of 4 options discovered, each of them comes with a unique set of features and capabilities, giving each of them different effectiveness for importing information and other activities. The 4 options reviewed are the Cameo Datahub, Excel Import, CSV Import, and the Generic Table Excel Mapping. The Cameo Datahub was designed to interface with requirements management tools with a sub-feature to work with excel files also. The excel import offers deep mapping options via Cameo’s modeling systems. The CSV Importer allows for the importing of new, and updating existing, elements with a flexible key Feature. The Generic Table Excel Mapping enables exporting, importing, and updating with detailed information identifying what changes in Cameo. For the task I was attempting to accomplish, I ended up choosing the CSV Importer tool, however, each Option does at least one thing better than the others so no single choice is definitively the best for you and your project work. This article covers the strengths, weaknesses, and a description of experiences with each of these Cameo based Excel importing options.
