As I’ve understood it, both the integration object and DataConnect allow you to import localized data (except business key fields, I think). In addition, we have another option to use the Globalization Manager to import traditional data. I found it’s pretty cool. We will only deal with the localized data, with less impact for the non-localized data. Before going forward with an option, I’d like to know what’s the best option for you guys?
Importing by using the Globalization Manager updates the L_ tables directly. If your data does not include localized values that need to be concatenated, for example in a formula, the Globalization Manager import is your best option.
However, if your data includes localized values that need to be concatenated through a formula, or if your data needs to be processed by workflow before it is added to the TRIRIGA tables, then you should use either the integration object or DataConnect.
