IRI Workbench is an integrated development environment (IDE) for IRI software built on Eclipse. IRI uses this Windows-friendly platform as the graphical user interface (GUI) for its entire product line, starting with:CoSort – for big data sorting and manipulation, involving files and tables FACT – for bulk database table unloads to flat files Offline Reorg – using FACT (to unload), CoSort (to sort) and bulk DB load utilities FieldShield – for data-centric masking and encryption within files and tables RowGen – for safe, intelligent test data creation for files and tables
Future development of the IRI Workbench will include:BIRT – for native, 3D business intelligence (data visualization) with CoSort preparing before or during reports NextForm – for data type, flat-file, and database migrations CDC, DAM/DAP, data federation, data quality, data validation, ELT, ETL, , etc. Read More
Data migration is done using NextForm; IRI’s data migration utility for converting large files into different formats and/or translating field-level data into other types. The current version converts between uniform XML and text files, LDIF and CSV, Vision and ISAM, MF COBOL variable-length files and Excel, etc.Read More
ODBC, Open Database Connectivity, is an industry-standard application programming interface (API) for access to both relational and non-relational database management systems (DBMS). ODBC was first developed by the SQL Access Group (SAG) in 1992 in response to the need to access data stored in a variety of proprietary personal computer, minicomputer, and mainframe databases without having to know their proprietary interfaces.
