IRI CoSort Certified Ready for PureSystems on IBM PureFlex

Melbourne, Fla. (September 27, 2013) – Innovative Routines International (IRI), Inc., a long-time leader in big data management and data protection software, has certified its flagship CoSort package “Ready for PureSystem” on PureFlex – IBM’s family of expert integrated systems. PureFlex compatibility allows IRI customers to develop and deploy CoSort SortCL programs in a cloud environment for data transformation, protection, conversion and reporting.

IRI customers that use CoSort and its compatible products in the IRI Data Manager suite can address data warehouse extraction, transformation, loading (ETL), legacy sort and data migration, data and database conversions, database unload, load, reorg and query acceleration, and other data integration-related tasks like data cleansing, federation, and replication. 

IRI Data Protector suite users can mask and encrypt personally identifying information (PII) requiring a content aware data loss prevention solution, or generate safe, intelligent test data without using production data.

The “Ready for PureSystems” certification allows IRI customers to manage and process big, structured data, and to develop applications for the cloud that will easily integrate with IBM hardware and software. “Our common customers can develop custom applications in the cloud that can perform tasks they would normally control only in their hardware environments,” said Don Purnhagen, Lead Software Engineer at IRI.

IBM’s PureSystems are designed to deliver on the promise of faster time-to-value, lower cost and superior responsiveness with three core attributes:

•    Built-in expertise. Expert integrated systems capture and automate best practices to reduce manual steps and costs for support and maintenance.

•    Integration by design. Hardware and software components are integrated by design and tuned in the lab. Systems are built to support both cloud and traditional computing environments.

•    Simplified experience. A simplified systems lifecycle helps eliminate the need to procure, deploy, manage and support IT components separately.
