Big Data Problem Big data volumes are growing exponentially. This phenomenon has been happening for years, but its pace has accelerated dramatically since 2012. Check out this blog entitled Big Data Just Beginning to Explode from CSC for a similar viewpoint on the emergence of big data and the challenges related thereto.
A pivot transformation turns multiple rows of data into one, denormalizing a data set into a more compact version by rotating the input data on a column value.
Star schema is the simplest and most common database modelling structure used in traditional data warehouse paradigms. The schema resembles a constellation of stars — generally several bright stars (facts) surrounded by dimmer ones (dimensions) where one or more fact tables reference different dimension tables.
IRI NextForm converts, replicates, federates, and reports on data in multiple sources and targets. There are six editions that specialize on different migration goals: Lite Edition – basic file conversions, COBOL edition – migrates MF COBOL, MF-ISAM, Acucobol, DBMS edition – database migration, Legacy edition – extracts data from hundreds of legacy sources, Modern edition – addresses cloud, SaaS, and big data sources, and Premium edition – which customizes your migrations for any of these data types, sources, and targets.
CoSort can sort, join, and aggregate in the same job. In fact, CoSort’s SortCL Program supports the consolidation of these three major data warehouse transformation functions in the same job script and I-O pass, along with reporting, protection, and many other data manipulations that would otherwise require separate steps, and possibly separate products.
IRI Voracity is an affordable data management platform that streamlines information architectures and helps enterprises leverage the intrinsic value of data without the cost or complexity of multiple tools.
