Time and technology keep accelerating, and the data we save keep on growing exponentially. Thus, the exact definition of a Very Large Database (VLDB) continues to change with new advances in hardware and software.
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.
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.
ODBC, Open Database Connectivity, is an industry-standard application programming interface (API) for access to both relational and non-relational database management systems (DBMS). ODBC was first developed by the SQL Access Group (SAG) in 1992 in response to the need to access data stored in a variety of proprietary personal computer, minicomputer, and mainframe databases without having to know their proprietary interfaces.
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.
