Big Data Packaging

Data Profiling, Acquisition, and Transformation

IRI software has been packaging big data rapidly, reliably, and affordably for decades. Consider CoSort's traditional strength - fast sorting - and how essential that is to so many big data staging processes that also include filtering, joins, and aggregations.


Today, you can leverage the CoSort engine as well as multiple Hadoop engines (MR2, Spark, Storm, and Tez) within the new IRI Voracity platform for total data management. Combine, munge, and mine structured internal and dark data assets with 'open' data sources to produce actionable business intelligence and predict trends.


The CoSort and Voracity products both use the same award-winning 4GL (SortCL) and the world's most popular IDE (Eclipse) to help you simplify and manage these operations:


  • Big Data Integration, including:
    • Data acquisition (extraction), manipulation (transformation), and population (loading)
    • Data cleansing and validation (data quality improvement)
    • Data federation and virtualization
  • Big Data Reporting (embedded BI)
  • Big Data Migration and Replication
  • Big Data Masking & Encryption (see Big Data Protection)
  • Big Test Data Generation (see Big Data Protection)
  • Big Data Franchising for BI Tools (see Big Data Provisioning)

Most of these activities can be consolidated in just one or few simple flow files or job scripts ... text files you can easily understand, modify, run anywhere, cloud-manage, and re-use.
