Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI) industry users represent IRI's largest customer segment. IRI helps these companies grow and protect their product portfolios with software that helps them spot trends or detect fraud faster, comply with privacy regulations, reduce software and hardware costs, and improve the quality and performance of their applications.

BFSI Issues


Very large databases (VLDBs) that require discovery (profiling), archival, migration, reorg, replication, and/or subsetting.

Big Data

Big data sets, typically from mainframe SAM files, VLDBs, transaction files, HDFS, and/or web logs that contain high volumes of financial data from:

  • Core banking and credit card processes
  • Customer promotion, psychographic, and retention initiatives
  • Credit and enterprise risk reporting
  • Claim processing and analytics
  • Fee, loyalty program, and customer relationship management
  • Mobile, web, and other channel analytics
  • Tax lot accounting and compliance programs

Batch and ETL-related operations under SLAs require faster data integration and staging of disparate sources for hand-offs to COBOL programs, BI, data and spread mart targets, databases, and software packages.

ETL Speed & Cost

Large data warehouses run atop overly complex 6- and 7-figure ETL tools that rely on partitioning, inefficient in-DB (or disjointed Hadoop) transforms, DB appliances, or more.


Mainframe JCL and other sort/merge utility migration to client/server operating systems. COBOL sort verb replacement (to improve native sort performance in volume).

Reporting and Analytics

Reporting and analytics from large, disparate data sources.


Mainframe and COBOL file and data type conversion, for application or platform migrations.


Bank account, credit card, social security/taxpayer/national ID numbers and other personally identifiable information (PII) that requires masking, encryption or other protections to comply with PCI standards or government data privacy directives.


Applications, billing templates, database and ETL prototypes, outsourced development, and offsite benchmarking need accurate test data that does not require access to (confidential, insufficient, or not-yet-existing) production tables or flat files.

IRI Solution


Big Data

Single-pass data transformations in the SortCL program in IRI CoSort and IRI Voracity that include:

  • filter and select
  • sort and merge
  • join
  • aggregate
  • rank and segment
  • lookup
  • cross-calculate
  • pivot
  • convert and remap

that can run within custom billing, trend, and other reports for:

  • batch jobs
  • delta (change data capture) or slowly changing dimension dimensional (CDC, SCD)
  • descriptive analytics; i.e. detail and summary reports with or without BIRT visualizations
  • web and XBRL formatted targets


IRI FACT (Fast Extract) unloads transaction tables to flat files. It runs with or without CoSort SortCL and bulk database load utility operations. The tools combine for classic (offline) reorgs and data warehouse ETL jobs. See also IRI NextForm or CoSort, which replicate, map, and report on flat-file or ODBC sources. IRI Voracity includes all the above, plus data discovery, subsetting, cleansing, masking, and unification (MDM).


CoSort parm conversion tools for z/OS CA-/DF-/SYNCSORT JCL cards produce SortCL scripts for sort/merge/select, FILE-AID, and ICETOOL jobs. CoSort "acucosort" and "mfcosort" libraries replace runtime sort verbs in ACUCOBOL-GT, Micro Focus Workbench, netExpress, Server Express, and Enterprise Server.

ETL Speed & Cost

Affordable IRI Voracity subscription software uses proven, seamlessly integrated CoSort and Hadoop engines for efficient transforms, in-line with Fast Extract and pre-CoSorted loads. AnalytiX DS' CATfx technology automatically re-platforms legacy ETL jobs to more ergonomic Voracity workflows.

Reporting and Analysis

CoSort SortCL can generate custom reports with built-in transformations, masks, and even statistical analysis (e.g. cals, std. dev., regression). Integration with BIRT in Eclipse is especially useful for IRI Voracity ETL users looking to visualize the results of their data mashups in one operation.


CoSort SortCL and NextForm migrate MF-ISAM and Vision to CSV and other text files, and converts fields in EBCDIC to ASCII, packed to numeric, big to little endian, multi-byte CJK to Unicode, and vice versa. They also re-map fields and reformat record layouts.


CoSort SortCL and IRI FieldShield discover and protect PII and other sensitive data in databases and flat files with data masking, de-ID, field encryption, hashing, pseudonymization, randomization, and other functions.


CoSort SortCL and IRI RowGen create safe, intelligent, and referentially correct test data from random data type generation, and/or random selection of real data from real set files (lookup tables). RowGen has built-in SortCL capabilities to manipulate and pre-sort test data to speed loads.
