Data profiling, or data discovery, refers to the process of obtaining information from, and descriptive statistics about, various sources of data. The purpose of data profiling is to get a better understanding of the content of data, as well as its structure, relationships, and current levels of accuracy and integrity.
IRI’s data management tools share a familiar and self-documenting metadata language called SortCL. All these tools — including CoSort, FieldShield, NextForm, and RowGen — require data definition file (DDF) layouts with /FIELD specifications for each data source so you can map your data and manage your metadata.
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 CoSort is the world’s #1 sort, and single-pass “super tool” for data transformation, reporting, and more. Use CoSort to migrate legacy sorts and data, accelerate BI, DB, and ETL tools, and replace SQL, shell scripts, and 3GL programs that can’t transform fast enough.
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.
