    With no further development on FastTrack is there any plans to replace it with a better user friendly Data Mapping tool and template based data models and ETL accelerators ?

    I think it's over with FastTrack, the new way is DS Flow Designer. The good news, DFD is included in the base installation of DataStage, so no additional license to pay.

    So does DFD has all the functionality of FASTTRACK included?
    Also are there any plans to include data modeling to support for different type likes Dimensional, DataVault etc and automation of Table creations and ELT type data loads in to the modeled tables?

    AFAIK Jerzy is wrong in this case, the DFD is dead and development on it will not be continued, the successor of it is DaaS (DataStage as a Service), of course I don't know if there will be a replacement for FastTrack (a tool that I will not miss) in the whole DaaS/CP4D.

    Thanks Ralf
    Yeah I am aware of new Gen datastage.
    I was more looking for the IBM'S  plans if any for data modelling and mapping for different types of data modelling and automation in terms of code generation from mapping and modelling for tables structures and ELT types of data loads for datastage to accelarate the development.
