Through its Workbench GUI, IRI Voracity® offers more data display and delivery options than any other platform, and all in one place.
In the same Eclipse IDE, Voracity gives you everything you need to prepare, present, and provide comprehensive, custom results for production or prototype data ... for all the right people in all the right formats.
As opposed to ETL-integrated BI (which is inefficient), Voracity is BI-integrated ETL on steroids. Use any combination of these options to meet your visualization needs and budget:
Voracity uses the CoSort SortCL 4GL program to write custom detail and summary reports while filtering, transforming, calculating, and protecting disparate sources.
Create multiple reports in one script. The simple syntax is also supported by IRI Workbench GUI job creation wizards, plus mapping and worfklow modeling diagrams.
Use Voracity to feed data to BIRT reports in Eclipse, statically or dynamically. Either method is a fast, inexpensive, and seamless way to prepare and present data.
Produce CSV or table targets BIRT can import, or better yet, specify IRI as the ODA data source and BIRT will read your output field names and values in RAM at reporting time.
Use Voracity to franchise integrated, cleansed, and masked data to your visualization tool. Unlike with ETL in their BI layer, your data is ready fast, and it's reusable.
Produce CSV, XML or table targets in CoSort or Hadoop. See the benchmarks, benefits, and best practices for several BI and analytic tools in this section of the IRI blog.
A fourth way, through an optional self-service BI module that bypasses traditional ETL and produces live results from SQL statements, will be available in 2016.
Voracity has the rare ability to produce any number of database, file, and custom report targets -- with real production or realistic test data results -- in all kinds of legacy and modern formats at the same time. This saves design time, and execution time by consolidating more work into the same jobs and I/O passes.
