IRI CoSort (Transformation)

The world's #1 sort, and 1-pass "super tool" for data transformation, reporting, and more

Do you know why IRI CoSort remains so popular after 38 years? It's still the only affordable high-performance data manipulation engine and Hadoop alternative for batch and ETL jobs, DB loads, BI data preparation, and application programs. CoSort also transforms and reports 10X faster than SQL, and will cleanse and mask data, too.

If you still haven't heard of CoSort or IRI, you're not alone. CoSort is still a guarded secret among IT managers and software developers who don't disclose how they beat their competitors with faster and more cost-effective data delivery.

While others throw hardware or Hadoop at the big data problem, CoSort users multi-thread and combine data transformation, cleansing, masking, and reporting in their Unix/Linux or Windows file systems.

And while they save on server upgrades and paradigm shifts, they also use CoSort to speed their existing BI data prep, DB load, ETL, and SQL operations, and to leave their legacy sort.
