IRI Expands Data Management & Protection Services Arm
Melbourne, Fla. (January 21, 2014) – Innovative Routines International (IRI), Inc. (The CoSort Company) -- a leading developer of big data management and data-centric protection software -- has announced the expansion of its professional services division to provide more consulting, implementation, and customized solutions for a wide range of ongoing IT challenges.
According to IRI Business Development VP David Friedland, “IRI services must tackle a growing demand to manage big data and migrate systems with less risk, cost, and complexity,” but also “maintain a focus on very high performance and security outcomes.” IRI will leverage its Data Manager and Data Protector suites in Eclipse to underpin these service offerings:
- Big data preparation – packaging, protecting, and provisioning structured and unstructured data sets for BI within existing DBs and file systems (and without the skills gap, high cost, and failure rate associated with Hadoop or ELT appliances)
- Data masking – profiling, de-identification, encryption, tokenization and other services to aid data loss prevention, data governance, and data privacy law compliance efforts
- Data replication and federation – acquiring, re-mapping, and creating virtualized views
- Database migration – mapping table data and relationships to new versions on platforms
- Legacy data conversion – reformatting LDIF, XML, and COBOL index files (e.g. Vision, MF-ISAM), multi-byte character sets, many mainframe data types, and endian conditions
- Master data management – value and format definition, quality validation, and security
- Program replacement – translating cryptic and inefficient SQL, 3GL, ETL and shell procedures into IRI's simple, portable, open-text 4GL scripts
- Test data management – end-to-end services from needs definition through data generation and target persistence (without using production data)
“IRI brings more than a hundred years of collective IT and data handling experience to transform customer strategies and business needs into actionable solutions,” Friedland added. “Clients derive future value through the proven interfaces, engines, and methods we deliver."
